    Hi

    So I had a go at hand expressing today. That was a messy job, most of it went over my hand and not into the bottle! I'm thinking a breast pump might be the best option after all! :lol:

    Which do you use/recommend? Did you buy or rent?

    lol poor you. It is a sticky business isnt it?

    I think the Meleda electric one is the best I think also avent isnt too bad but not manual will give you an RSI of the wrists lol
    Well done for trying

    electric ones are so so so much better than hand pumps...

    i found with my hand pump that i was spending so long between feeds expressing that by the time i finished rhys was ready for another bottle!!!
