Our insurance doesn't cover pumps unless you physically cannot feed baby from the boob.
I have the Playtex Nurser and hate it! It gave me blisters the first time I used it. Tried a softer suction and then nothing seemed to come out... SOOO I went out and bought a manual. I love my manual pumps but it seems the lose suction half way through? I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or what. Usually tightening the parts fixes the problem, but I don't understand why it's happening.
I have the Lansinoh Manual and the Medela Harmony Manual. I was having issues with the Lansinoh so that's why I bought the Medela... I'm finding the Medela gives me more problems then the Lansinoh. I can try to explain it... while I'm pumping the part under the handle like puffs out and causes the suction to be lost, and I have to fix it like 3-4 times each boob... It completely dry when put together, the piece inside is up and down like it's supposed to be... I just don't get it. Oh well, it gets the job done and isn't that big of an issue, just annoying.
I got a First Years MiPump. I like it a lot. I think it really helped to get my milk flowing. I got it brand new for $30 from a tip a fellow mom posted on kijiji that that they were on clearance at our local Zehr's. I won't even check if it is covered by insurance since it wasn't a lot of money.
I tried to get it covered but I had to have something physically wrong too. I could have gotten the script rewritten but I didn't feel like dealing with the hassle. I ended up getting a good deal on a medela swing pump off of ebay.
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

Ameda Purely Yours Ultra....yes, it's super easy to use. However, I didn't need the "Ultra" part which is basically freezer compartmen/storage for bottling BM at work while pumping and a nice carry bag.
I've got a Tommee Tippee manual breast pump and a Spectra electric breast pump and both suit me fine. I alternate using them as the former gives me an aching wrist and the latter makes my nipples sore if I use it too much. System's different here so a breast pump is not something I can claim assistance with.
I have a Medela Swing but I haven't used it yet this time. I'd like to get some milk stored for nights out but I don't want to start pumping until DS cuts back on nursing again. For the amount of pumping I do, it's plenty.
I didn't check but I doubt our insurance would cover that
