    breastpumps

    Advertisements
    So i am wanting to get a breastpump so won't have to worry about making it home in time to find Juliana if we are out (i dont like feeding in public). But, my question is can you use any bottle with any pump? or would i just pump then pour it into whatever bottles we have?

    TIA

    I pump with the bottles provided, but would pour it in to a different disposable bottle to freeze and store so it didn't really matter.

    I have this one and I love it!

    Avent ISIS iQ Duo Electric Breast Pump - Walmart.com

    I used it while DS was in the NICU and I exclusively pumped for 4 months and never had a problem with it. I used it with DD for a year as well and it was great!

    I have a medela pump in style (metro bag) and I love it! Worked well for me, albeit a little bulky but it worked awesome for me

    I use a Medela PIS, not sure what sub-name. Lucky for me, the pumping kits given to me in the hospital were compatible with it. It does it's job, and I'm good with that. I bought it at a consignment sale for 1/3 of what it cost new.

    I have that and it's perfect. If you look it up on amazon, there are posts on how to save money on storing too!
