Another BF and Returning to Work Question

I am returning to work FT at the beginning of March, and have the Medela Advanced Pump in Style. I want to continue exclusively BF my son, and have been pumping once a day and building a supply in the freezer. What is the best way to organize things between home, daycare and work? Should I take the pump and leave at the office, and just bring home the full bottles each day (buying an extra daycarrier kit and bottles for daycare)? Does anyone have experience of using these Medela bottles for feeding, as I have just used them for...

Medela Freestyle Pump

I am researching breast pumps and recently heard about Medela's new hands-free Freestyle pump. The reviews I have found have been very positive, but there are few out there since it is so new. I will be going back to work full time so definitely will need a double electric pump. Besides the Medela Freestyle, I am also considering the Medela Pump in Style Advanced and the Ameda Purely Yours. Does any one have the Medela Freestyle? Any other advice on the other options I am considering? Thanks so much!

Nursing and Job Hunting...

I applied for a part time job in my field which is teaching and now have an interview late next week. It's just during the summer and only 3 hours a day plus prep time and staff meetings and the like. I'm concerned only about the fact that I will need to pump. I can make it so I don't have to pump during class time in the morning, but definitely at lunch and during the afternoon if I need to be there, pumping will be required. Have any of you ever been hired while nursing? How did you handle the whole pumping thing? Did any of you...

Quiet Medela Breastpump?

I have an older Medela Pump in Style that I used for my first. It works... but it is sooo loud and so slow. I recently saw another women pumping and was amazed at how quiet it was, I couldn't even hear it. I asked her if it was a Medela and she said yes, but I'm not sure which model. Do any of you have a very quiet Medela pump that you'd recommend?
