The Department of Economic Services will give you one as well as vouchers for milk....... provided YOU are breast feeding.

A plastic soda bottle top (500 mL through 3 L, depending on the size of the pumpee). Round the cut edges using the flame of a propane torch. Use the bulb from a turkey baster, it should fit smaller bottle tops.

Check with the local La Leche League!  They may be able to hook you up with someone who has a pump and no longer needs it.

Ebay has manual pumps for $10 or even less, plus shipping.  Definitely preferable to homemade.

Good luck!
