Questions About Breast Pumps

I have a lot of questions about breat pumps. I will have to return to work about 6 weeks after having my baby so I will need to pump my breastmilk. I have heard that the Medela and Ameda pumps are good. Also heard that the Lasinoh is comparible to the Ameda. Any thoughts? Do most pumps come in standard sizes so any bottle can attach to it?

Can I Continue Breastfeeding Without a Pump?

My sister-in-law has let me borrow her breastpump but now she is having her second baby and needs it back. I have been pumping while at work and breastfeeding my son whenever I'm with him. My question is if I'm not pumping during the day will my milk supply totally diminish? I would like to continue to breastfeed him but I'm worried I wont be able to keep up my supply without the pumping. I have to give the pump back in about 3 weeks is there anything I should do to prepare? My son is already supplmenting with formula.
