    Does it matter what kind of breast pump you have?

    OH bought a tommee tippee sterilizer with the tommee tippee bottles and I wondered if you needed to use the tommee tippee pump with it? or if other ones will work for the bottles?

    I wouldnt have thought it mattered.

    We have bought Tommee Tippee ones too and the breast pump but I also got freezerbags tostore breast milk in so I would think you could decant your milk into bottles or a freezer bag.

    I have a manual medela... I tried the electric at the hospital but didn't like it...

    I use the manual every couple hours and have had no issues, its super easy to use for me.

    With older DD I had a advent manual, nursing on demand and pumping right after and every 3 hours if she had a bottle I still lost my milk. This time around I went all out and invested in a medela double electric and love, love, loved it. I still use it here and there to this day if DD is not feeling way and hasn't nurse a lot during the day. Dont be afraid, and if you are hold off on a pump and test an electric out at the hospital

    I think different people have their favourite breast pumps. Personally, I couldnt get any out with an electric and bought a tommee tippee maunal, which has been great. But other people prefer electrics. I think its trial and error really I'm afraid.
