Has anyone used the tommee t closer to nature elec pump? It's the most affordable (1/2 price) for me so i'm hoping it's good. Thanks

I've just started using it and so far so good with expressing. Only annoying thing is the assembly after cleaning as so many parts to put back together, but you get used to it.

Have you already had your baby ^double*? If not, I'd leave it until you need it. If you have had your baby, you may find that someone at a Bfing Support Group may be selling a pump.

My baby came early and I had to express for top ups for a few weeks after getting home from hospital. I was very thankful I had already chosen and bought a pump. You can always sell it if you don't use it!

We had an avent one and it was great but the TT probably is too.

The toy library ran out of sure start centres has them on loan which is a really cost effective way too. So might be worth looking for similar in your area. Midwife / health visitor would be able to point you in their direction.

I used a medela in hospital and I've got a medela free style (twins are 7 months) which is fab but if only suggest an electric if your going to us it a lot- I've also got the manual medela ones which work just as well. I bought a tommee tippe electric one of a friend and it didn't get any milk out for me.
