Electric pump recommendations and advice

I'm hoping to start occasional expressing for DD2, who is 7 months. Any pump recommendations? I've been looking at the Medela swing, but only because I've heard of it!

Also wondering what bottles/sizes I should use, and how much to try for each feed.

I have heard the medela swing is best too. Personally I have Philips avent single electric one and it's pretty good, no complaints!

For quantity I use the "Kelly mom" guidelines she has which is based on how often your baby feeds

Great, thanks. I've just ordered a Medela mini as it was much cheaper and I found out it is a Which Best Buy. Apparently it's very noisy though. Thanks for the reminder about KellyMom, I was on there all the time with DD1, forgot how useful it is!

I used the medela in the hospital and it was amazing. Thinking that a pump is a pump I bought a Tommee Tippee... it was awful!!!!!

With bottle sizes, don't buy the really small ones as in a few months you'll need to buy the bigger ones because the feed amount will increase.
