The info. was helpful, although I personally disagree with the Playtex Embrace pump advertisement. By the time my baby was 5 mos. I had burned out 2 Playtex motors, I solely pumped (dad wanted to bond as well), and finally broke down and bought a Medela. I did not get the high end model, I purchased the mid price model ($319), after having spent close to $200 on 2 Playtex models. With the second baby due, my Medela is still operating well and I changed the tubing out. I plan to try to nurse this baby; but, if not possible I will again be pumping for the next year.


I second the medela if you are going to be pumping a lot. I went back to work when my babies were 3 months old, both times, and my trusty medela pump in style is still going strong, having been used for 9 months 3-4x per day with my first, and going on 6 months with my second. Don't skimp on a breast pump if you plan to provide all of your babies milk that way. Even 300+ dollars is way cheaper than the amount of formula you would buy.

I'd like to give a plug for the "My Brest Friend" nursing pillow. It's the stupidest name ever, but makes it soooo much easier to position baby correctly than the Boppy. It also provides back support.

Also, I'd like to point out that if you're not going back to work and money is tight, a breast pump is totally optional. You don't need one if you're going to be the one watching your baby 24/7. If you're not willing to be on a two-hour leash for six months, you can also get a cheapo ($25) manual pump for occasional use.

Also, my personal breastfeeding strategy is to set up my nursing station in the playroom. Big'n has all his toys to play with, and can roam freely while still keeping an eye on me. When he's feeling cuddly, he climbs up on the end table next to me or sits on the arm of the rocker. The baby's four months old and this strategy has totally worked for us.

I tandem nurse, and it has been sooo worth it. It was rough getting through pregancy at times (Adventures in Tandem Nursing, by Hillary Flower, was helpful reading) but now in some ways it makes things easier... when I have a hungry baby and a tired fussy toddler, I can calm them both down at once. And it provides a great way for them to bond as they both nurse.
