The Medela double electric ones are the nicest, but we decided not to spend that much money on one. I only work part time. I have been very pleased with my Lansinoh double electric (also branded as Ameda) pump. It's been through 2 kids and does just fine. It fits small and wide bottles and it has less parts to clean. Also you can't get milk in the tubes like you can with the Medela.
Thanks so much for all of your input. I just checked the BRU website and the Lansinoh one is on sale for $115 right now. I think we might get that one. I won't be working so I will only need it to pump and store for help from DH with middle of the night feedings or when DH and I want to go out on dinner/movie dates.
Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!
If your baby is born early, the hospital will probably rent you a hospital grade one. Or it might be free.....idk, but I would check with them, and check with your insurance company. At my mid pregnancy class, the nurse said that if you need a pump, to get a prescription from your doctor and take it to a medical supply company to be fulfilled and your insurance would pay for all or part of it. I think it's part of the new health care bill that they cover breast pumps. You may only be able to do this after the baby is born, though. At any rate, the hospital has pumps I'm sure and they just give/sell you the parts that touch you and the milk.
