comment How do you cope in the first few months?
Wishing you the best because my wife and I are working with our 3 week old right now. It gets a little easier every day. The first days are the most extreme nerve wracking stress you'll ever experience at any time in your life.

Yeah nobody should be placing judgements on how people feed their baby. Breastfeeding IS very hard to master. Its taken us a lot of investment in time and money to get it to work. I have no idea how a poorer/single parent would do it and we had many moments of near absolute failure at it with both of us working hard. The pressure/stress of breastfeeding being very high I eventually concluded that its completely understandable and OK for some to choose to remove loads of unhealthy stress from the whole early parenting experience and just formula feed.

Do you know if this database is accessible without an iphone through a web interface? I checked the Medela site, but nothing obvious pops out at me.

@Beofett I've heard that Nordstrom has facilities, which made me wonder whether there's some way I can know if where we're going will have them
