    I started formula feeding in between breastfeeding once my daughter was one month old. She now seems to hate the breast and only seems satisfied with the bottle.

    I am going to be returning to work soon. I am currently pumping breastmilk at home and initially decided to stop before I go back to work.

    I dont remember the brand we purchased (it was available at target) but it was electric and about $30-$40 if memory serves. I dont know how it compares to the more expensive versions of electric pump, but my wife found it useful for pumping when she needed to. If that wont work, I agree you should look...
