    Just wanted to say that I can recommend this pump. Bought mine new off of Ebay for £26. Or you can get them from Mothercare for £42.95.
    It plugs into the wall and does all the work for you - you just need to hold it on. It has different settings for how hard it 'sucks', make sure you start off on MIN! :lol:

    I've only got colostrum at the moment but I wanted to try it out to see if it was unbearable and it's not. Maybe after several feeds a day I'll feel differently, but I'm hoping that with the help of this pump I'll be able to last at breastfeeding (if my milk comes in!).

    Thanks a million rosieroo- I been looking at those on ebay for ages wondering about them. I read some reviews that said it was noisy- was it?

    Thanks again!

    It does make a humming noise. But then I had to choose between putting up with that, or either hand pumping it (my Auntie said it takes her 30 mins to hand pump a bottle out) or paying nearly £200 for a different type of electric one :shock: .

    I think I'll get used to the noise of it after a while :)

    Sorry :oops: but I did only get it a few days ago :( I was going to go for the Isis at first, but then I saw this one on Ebay and thought that I might aswell go for it as it worked out about the same price.
