    I bought a manual tommee tippee one that was on offer for £20 but someone said the electric one is better as il be pumping for ages with aching hand just to get a tiny bit out.. Shall I take it back and get an electric one or? Any suggestions would be great x

    Hi
    I didn't breast feed for more than two weeks Hun, I had both,,as baby was struggling
    I don't think ull need an electric if u manage to successfully bf as u Wundt need it then
    I certainly agree the electric is a lot easier
    Good luck

    I had my breast feeding antenatal class last night and the MW who led the session advised that few women can get on well with hand pumps and electric are much better... However I think it is an individual thing and you may find it works for you. Good luck x

    I bought the tommee tippee one last week, I didn't mind spending £30 as opposed to £130 that seems to be the average cost of an electric.

    If BF takes off and works for me then maybe ill look into an electric one but whilst its all trial and error I didn't want to potentially waste £100 xx

    I agree! I took the manual back and then rebought it! Thought its better to spend £20 to test how it goes then spend £100 if I have to if the manual doesn't suit me!
