Does anyone have input on foot pumps, specifically the Medela Pedal Pump? Are there other brands out there? I have heard that this method is easier than traditional hand pumps because your hands are free and your leg muscles will not tire as quickly.

Just to let people know that I did buy the Medela Pedal pump for breast pumping and it is working well. There is another brand available as well by Versaped (Versaped.com). The difference between them as far as I can tell is that with the Medela pump, you can take it apart and remove the pedal. Then you can use it as a hand pump if necessary. I plan to do this when I travel because the foot pump is heavy. It is much easier using your foot for pumping and you can do both breasts at once. You buy the foot pump seperately and then buy the Lactina Double Pumping System by Medela. You can purchase both at the Medela website.
