    A friend has given me an avent one- I was playing at putting it together last night and its not too complicated. It is a manual, not electric

    A couple of friends have recommend the manual Avent one to me, though I hear if you are more serious about expressing regularly, the electronic ones are worth the investment.

    I've been advised to get the same make breast pump as whatever formula bottles you are using - to avoid having to double up on sterilising (as the teats can go straight onto the breast bottles).

    I've got an Avent manual one and it's dead simple to use. The suction doesn't half plump your nipples up! :rotfl:
