what is the best manual pump

Can anyone tell me in their experience what is the best manual pump that won't tire my hands despite filling a bottle? I have had several electric pumps. I loved them, but I really thought we were done and I got rid of my dual pump last summer, just before finding out I was expecting again. I am sure this is going to be our last baby, well as sure as sure can be. I'm going for that Smile So I don't really feel like spending hundreds of dollars on a pump. I mostly only use it for the first few months off and on: primarily to relieve engorgement and also on the occasion I'm out and need to pump a bottle etc. I don't use it full time like working mothers or exclusively pumping ladies. I also don't have all day to try to fill one up. In my previous experience with manual pumps, they killed my hands. I don't have that much strength and have some arthritis. Any recs?

I only pumped occasionally and I got a Playtex Manual Pump and it worked really well. I was able to get the starter kit that came with Drop Ins and bottles. The pump was really easy to clean and was durable. Good Luck!

thanks! I just went ahead and bought a new dual electric one. I gave it some thought and I don't think manual is for me Smile
