    Hi, I use all tommee tipper stuff. Got the manual breast pump on offer for ??10 and the microwave steriliser as well. Really like the bottles, we have a few anti colic ones which are good.

    Like cebpickle, I'm all avent except we have th electric steam steriliser and not the microwave one.I really like it and obviously it fits all avent bottles and stuff perfectly.

    Just a precautionary word, avent have brought out some new bottles, and I'm not sure if all the current accessories fitmthem as they are a different design - something to look into.

    I've been very with my avent stuff - I got good deals of kiddicare.

    An electric breast pump is better than a manual one! Less hassle, easier, but more expensive

    Thanks MrsQM2, i think im leaning more towards an electric steriliser and had looked at the Avent one, thanks for the tip about the new bottles etc, I'll definitely look into that image

    I have the tommy tippee electric steriliser which I've been really pleased with - very quick and easy. For some reason I felt funny about putting baby's bottles, etc in a microwave (just me being weird!)

    I have the medela swing breast pump which has been fab. I use it every day and it's very comfortable and effective. Can highly recommend.

    Don't buy a manual breast pump, they are very time consuming and after sitting pumping milk off for half an hour each side, very painful on your arms
