Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good pump for bigger chested mums!
I used an Avent hand pump with DS 6 years ago but found bit pretty uncomfortable on my huge boobs. DD only 5 days old and my F cup nursing bras are tight already .
So any recommendations for a good pump that might accommodate my large breasts?!
Not looking to spend a fortune, breatfeeding but would like to be able to express the occasional bottle.
Thanks

I think most pumps come with similar size attachments (not really sure what you call the bit you put to your breast...blush)but you can buy bigger ones for most models to fit bigger boobs.

Not sure about in your area but in the area I live the Health Visitors / Breastfeeding supporters let you borrow a pump for awhile and can advise you on "attachments".... Gosh what are they called??angry

If you are really full abit of hand expression works wonders... As it empties your breast without stimulating the flow... i.e. they don't fill straight up. Also hand expressing off abit before Breastfeeding helps if you baby is struggling to latch if you are rather full...

Hope that helps abit
