i'm also planning on BF. I've borrowed a medela pump from someone and do not want to use her replaceable used parts. I have tubing that i got from the company.
I was going to buy the nipple shields, etc from babies r us, but i have been told that the hospital will give you the parts you have used in the hospital that can work in any breast pump system.
Is this true? Did you receive any parts from the hospital?
