My daughter is 3 1/2 months old and I returned to work on Monday. Up until now she has been for the most part exclusively breastfeeding and taking one bottle of formula a day. I would like to pump at work but I only have an electronic hand held medela pump which is really loud so I'm not able to pump a lot because I can't relax enough while using it at work. I'm debating on whether or not I should rent one of or even possibly buy one that is of a better quality then my hand held one and if I do will I see an increase in the amount of ounces I'm pumping. Is it worth it at this point or should I just pump what I'm able to, and supplement with formula until my supply drys up? Any suggestions would be appreciated, besides quiting my job lol because that's what I would like to do but unfortunately we need the income!
