You’ve read the books, talked to friends, surfed the web, and compared customer reviews. You’re sure you know which pump you want to buy or use. You’re all set, right? Not so fast. With a global market worth well over 700 million U.S. dollars, manufacturers are vying to make you choose theirs. But what’s fact, what’s fiction, and what will improve your pumping experience? Before you spend a dime–or use the breast pump your insurance carrier provides–you need to get the facts. Should you spend money for a bigger, more powerful pump? Can you spend less money–or even no money–and do just as well for yourself and your baby? Is renting a better option? Is it really unsafe to accept a used breast pump? Why are you hating the pump your best friend raved about? What’s an “open-system”, or a “closed system” pump, and does it matter? Join Marie as she explains what you need to know about breast pumps, answering these and many other questions. Before you buy, make sure you know the facts.
