4 months have gone so fast. After my uber long maternity leave, I am now back to reality - the corporate world. I’ve always wanted to be a stay-at-home-mom; but since in reality, our expenses have bumped up so much, I can’t afford to leave my job yet. And as a breastfeeding mom, I ought to continue saving milk stash for her. I’ve been exclusively pumping every 3 hours per day and able to bring 4 bottles to Milly from work. J I also feel thankful of my supportive friends, because they really do not mind me every time I pump at my desk. HR actually allowed me to have my lactation break, but since pumping each of my breasts would take almost 30minutes, I opted to pump here at my station instead.
At office, I use medela swing and while at home I use my double electric Spectra dew 300. J Here are some pros and cons for each pump (based on my experience)
Very comfortable and looks very durable
Have a very good suction; there’s a knob that you can adjust to control the suction
Easy to clean
Easy to use
Not portable. The motor is too big.
No option for batteries
Has a 2 phase technology
Easy to use
Spareparts are quite expensive
More parts to clean as compared to spectra
Let me share you the milk stash I've saved for Milly ♥
