What about breast pumps?
Answer: There are two different types of breast pump: Manual (hand-operated) and electric. Different pumps suit different women, so ask for advice or see if you can try or rent one to try before you buy. Generally speaking, manual pumps are cheaper, but may not be as quick as an electric one. You can get single pumps, which allow you to express from one breast at a time, or double pumps, which allow you to express from both breasts simultaneously. You can purchase a breast pump from baby stores, department stores, pharmacies, and online maternity stores. Look for a reputable brand which also sells replacement parts separately, just in case.
