New Avent Pump

I should say that I am really happy and proud that Elaine have been able to provide Keith fully with EBM for a whole year. Elaine's supply is only able to provide just the right amount without any extra at all, with Keith on 2 meals of solid. Throughout the year Elaine have been using her sister's AVENT ISIS Pump and we have went to the service center to buy us the spare parts. According to Elaine those parts are beginning to fail as well and we have been pondering whether to get a new one or to buy more spare parts.

A few months back when Jusco was offering a 20% discount on the Avent product, we decided to buy the The AVENT ISIS iQ UNO™ because EBM is really taking its toll on Elaine. Things definitely would be better if Keith would latch on but he is reluctant and furthermore Elaine fears of his 8 front teeth, we decided to make the purchase. It was a very big investment for us because it is priced RM695.00 before discount, also the reason why we waited for the discount!
Upon opening the set, we realise that inside the box is the regular AVENT ISIS Pump with an added electrical top which would pull the diaphragm. (included is a wall power adapter as well as a battery power pack for mobility) Anyway we would be going to their customer service too because the power kept turning off by itself when we are using the wall power adapter.


This Tuesday is also the day Elaine went for her annual checkup with her gynae. During the checkup, we were given 5 boxes of Promil Gold and we have yet to consult with the paed whether Keith is able to take it because we fear that he would develop anymore eczema. The paed has yet to acertain whether Keith has CMPA but she recommends Elaine to keep giving him EBM.

How is the pump, Peter? I was planning on buying the same one for this upcoming baby. I used the manual one with Bryan but sold it off because I developed painful wrists.
