I would like the lactation specialist to show me how to use it and get me started. Is it normal to bring it to the hospital with you?

I almost asked this yesterday so I wanna see what other mommy's are doing
pillowbling:No. At my breastfeeding class at the hospital the LC said not to bring it. They have the hospital-grade pumps that you can use while you are there to get the hang of it. They also recommended not opening it until after LO arrives in case it needs to be exchanged for a different kind of pump.
I have heard this from a lot of mommies before me.
