Sooo thanks to you wonderful ladies talking about free breast pumps from your insurance providers, I investigated and found out that I too get this privilege. The one I have right now is in pieces and all over the place thanks to my exploding closet that I have yet to deal with AND it's several yrs old so I figure I might as well get a new free one.
Currently, there are 3 electric pumps available for order and I'm not sure which one is best. I thought maybe y'all could help me choose between them so I can hurry up and order one tonight when DH gets home.
I'll be using it mostly in the car using a power inverter in the cig lighter.
I was up half the night last night researching pumps. I have been super stressed about it. I have read nothing but good things about the Hygeia. I have no experience in this area other than the countless reviews I have read about every freakin breast pump on the market.
I've never used it personally, but I've heard raves about the Hygeia pumps and their customer support. Plus, they seem to be closed system and can be used by multiple users, so have good resale value when you're done with them.
I had an Avent pump with my youngest that was absolute junk. That was almost 7 years ago, but it just did not work well at all.
The Lansinoh is what I ordered, because my insurance won't cover the Hygeia or even Medela or Ameda. =\
Ok, I ordered the Hygeia. The only thing I wasn't impressed with is that my current pump has it so you can hold both pumps up with one handle and none of the 3 that my insurance offers has that. I like to pump two at once. Helps my milk come down better so I hope it's not too awkward.
I just now did per your suggestion. That's pretty cool! I don't know if I'd spend the $35 only bc I'd be wearing it pretty much only in the car and I wouldn't want to wear that kind of a bra when I go out places bc I'd want to wear my nursing bra JIC I ended up needing to BF while out. If I pumped a lot more at home it would def be justifiable for me. That is a really cool bra though.
I wonder why not all pumps have the snap together with one handle feature. I find that odd.
Maybe I can invent a way to connect them myself.. duct tape or something (haha).
I have read that you can cut holes in an old nursing bra. I also saw someone mention something about hair ties? I didn't click the link because it wasn't info I needed at the time, but maybe Google it and you'll find it.
