I'd rent until you see if it's going to work. I bought one after my son wouldn't latch but ended up wasting $300 because my supply never fully came in. And manual pumps actually worked better than electric for some reason even though it took longer.
Yeah its like 45 or 60 to rent a medela from the hospital a month. And the kits you just buy for 45 flat. Thanks for the advice ladies... I think I will rent... any advice on bottles.. I used Dr Brown for my DD... wonder about avent this time around..
rent one! Sometimes the baby won't take to the breast and you may decide you only want to do it for a little bit. My sis bought a really expensive one with her twins and used it for 3 weeks. one twin wouldn't nurse at all and it became stressful with the 2 of them.
