I plan on breastfeeding, as much as possible. I do not plan to do formula at all. So it should go without saying that I want a breast pump. I thought I had it figured out as to which one I wanted, but I’m still looking around. I have to say…finding decent reviews or comparisons is evading me right about now.
Considering I plan on breastfeeding for the most part, I do not foresee the need to pump all that often, so I decided to look into the Playtex Embrace or the Playtex Petite Double. They both seem to have good reviews for the most part, of course, a few people here and there that do not like it compared to the Medela. However, I have seen a ton of reviews speaking highly of the Playtex over the Medela. So I’m basically tossing the Medela off the list. Also, considering how…ample my chest is to start with, I’ve seen some good reviews for the Playtex being good for larger chested women. Another point in their direction.
However, I can’t seem to find any information on whether or not their bottles are necessarily compatible with the pumping system itself. If anyone has any idea, please let me know, and if there is a wide range of compatibility between bottle brands and pumps, I’d love to know that as well.
