    Hospital grade pumps are really good but they cost like 1k to buy or £50 to hire each month thats really expensive if you bf up to a year, the midwives are rubbish at explaining expressing and the pumping avaliable, I had a crappy manual pump for 2 months and I used to cry it it was so slow!!!
    Pure maths wise, surely it's BETTER to rent a breast bump then? £600/year vs £1000. Though I guess if you decide to breast feed for at least 20 months, it's cheaper to buy out right..

    Also if you plan to have more than one child and think you will be expressing each time. Multiple periods of rental would make purchase more economical.

    You don't get what im getting at, the nhs are always shoving breast feeding in women's faces but not doing enough to support us, a lot of women pump because of latching issues, the dad can feed baby too etc but a hospital grade pump costs a grand or rental of £60 per month thats double of what it would cost in you using formula alone,

    Actually, she said

    She used quotation marks around the word roles, and explicitly referred to herself as dabbling.

    I wouldn't really call that making it all out to be a huge deal. Just joining in the thread. Do you have a personal vendetta against her?
    thank you. Yep I was just joining in the thread. I do no more than any other parent really and true enough it was my choice to have children. I guess it was more to highlight how versatile you have to be really when you have kids, as opposed to when you go out to work all day and have one specific job role which doesn't deviate very much. Stay-at-home-mums are much more jack-of-all-trades than specialised.

    *shrugs*

    I certainly wasn't complaining or anything. I think some people just dislike mums

    Not against her. Just against stay-at-home mums who pretend they work hard.
    I didn't pretend anything.

    What ever happened to her? Did she actually turn out to be a troll?
