Hi CarlaFound you through your comment on Mabel's House. Congrats on your bundle of joy that will be arriving soon. I have a 4 month old. He is our first. You asked for input on BFing and breast pumps...I would say go with a Medela..they are not cheap..but everyone i know that has one is not disappointed. Another idea..rent one from the hospital for the first month until you get the hang of breast feeding and pumping. Once your milk supply is established and you have time to research things...then buy you a pump for home. just a suggestion. My supply never came in strong so I nursed at some level for 13 weeks and supplemented also. Best of luck to you!! Enjoy every crazy moment!! they are amazing little things!!
