I did a little price comparison of forumla vs. all the costs incurred during a year of exclusive pumping. You'll be glad to know that pumping is much cheaper.

Not sure I can say the same, although it was my original reason to EP, I now do it because I want the best for my babies, not because its cost effective.
Lets see...2 pumps (bought a separate for work....yeah, I know its not necessary), a bottle of fenugreek, reglan, and More Milk Plus with DS, Goats Rue for DD, 3 mo supply of Dom for both kids, several sets of tubes and membranes, hands free bra that I don't even like, bottles, new nipples for bottles when I had DD, Newmans nipple cream, a box of freezer bags every other month, a secondhand deep freeze off craigslist, and I have to clock out during 1 of my 3 pump sessions at work. It adds up, lol, but I wouldnt have it any other way!
