Pumping mom survival guide - Tip number 3

I cannot emphasize this one enough folks!

Buy the absolute best pump you can afford! I can personally recommend the Medela Pump In Style. It has been a fantastic workhorse through two kids. Others I know speak very highly of the Ameda Purely Yours. If you spend any time researching breastpumps, you will see that there are fabulous pumps and there are awful pumps. Please don't try to stint on your pump. A bad pump will not extract milk well and can even hurt you. A good one will do the job while protecting your breasts from injury. This is critial if you want to maintain a productive breastfeeding relationship.
