Ok-- so I have not been one of those pregnant women that are all psyched for bfing. It's just not something I was raised around- most women I knew in our family bottle/formula fed, including my own mother.
That said, I want to give it an honest try-- for the health of the baby. I have a lot of issues to get over (since I will not bf in front of anyone but DH), not even covered. This is because my IL's , nor my family, have any boundary issues.... I woldn't put it past them to just push their way in-- to see baby...
So... I am thinking, that I would like to pump as well-- so I can use a stash for the moments when relatives are visitng-- and once I get back to a normal schedule, and want to let my DH feed the baby.
I thought I would get a manual pump, but I hear they are not that effective. I am contemplating on buying an electronic one-- in hopes of using it right away. I am also hoping that if pumping frees me from some feedings, that it will actually help me bf longer then just the first 2 months.
Any suggestion on the pump/ or in general?
