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? Also anybody know how often I will need to pump? Obviously, there's a lot I don't know about pumping!

Hi, I am the mother of a 5 week old infant and we are having some difficulties with breastfeeding.

Looking for More Info on the DPA Baby Bottle Recall

Has anyone heard about the baby bottle recall? My father called and said that he had just seen the end of a segment on the news about baby bottles being recalled because of high levels of DPA. He didn't know the brand or any other information. I searched all of the news websites and couldn't find anything... We use Dr Browns Bottles. Please let me know if you have heard anything or have anymore information on this recall.

Need Advice About Breast Pumps

Hi. This is my first pregnancy and I am looking for some advice about breast pumps. I am already at home, and will remain at home once I have our son. I plan to breastfeed only. So, the use/need for a breast pump is only for 2 reasons. 1) to have a small "stock" in the freezer and 2) so my husband and I can go out occasionally.
