To any experienced mom's:
I am due with my first baby in a month. I am planning to breastfeed and will most likely not be going back to work. I haven't purchased a breast pump yet, mostly because I am not sure what to get. I have heard that the medela brand is the best, but I need some advice on whether or not it is really necessary to get an electric pump. If I am going to be staying at home will a cheaper manual pump do the job? Since I am going to be staying at home our budget is going to be tight and don't want to spend the money if I don't need to. Also, do I need to buy the pump before giving birth or just once I come home from the hospital? Any advice would be very helpful. Thank you!
