My insurance offers a Breast Pump within 60 days of birth but there are only 3 it will offer and after doing research and looking at reviews, I think I am going to go with this one
Amazon.com: Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump - Carry All: Baby

I HIGHLY recommend the Medela Freestyle. I exclusively pumped with DD and I wouldn't have been able to do it without this pump. I had the Pump in Style advanced for the first two months and when it broke, I upgraded to the Freestyle. Sooooo glad that happened. I got more milk in less time and it was nice no having to be strapped to a bag or worry about being plugged in. (The Pump in Style Advanced has a place for batteries, but I tried it and the batteries lasted one pump. The Freestyle has a rechargeable battery pack that can last for a full day of pumping at my intensity.) The pump unit is small and portable. It is pricey, but worth every penny. I used it 8-10 times a day for 6 months and it still worked like it was brand new. I will be using it again with this baby.

I LOVED my Medela Freestyle!! I used it with all 3 of my previous children. I am currently using a Pump in Style to help induce lactation and its good.. but I miss my Freestyle! I was able to feed DD2 out of the freezer for 6 months after she weaned (at 14 months) b/c of how much I was able to pump with the Freestyle.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!!

My insurance only offers a few pumps, none of them the most commonly heard of ones. I have put in an order for a Lansinoh pump, because of of the ones offered it sounded the best and is supposed to be covered at 100%: Amazon.com: Lansinoh Affinity Double Electric Breast Pump, Lavender: Baby

However, I have a "baby savings" account started, and if that pump turns out to be crap, I should have the money put away for the Medela that I wanted to get.

I've used the Ameda Purely Yours and the Medela Pump In Style with success. The PIS was a little more uncomfortable on my nipples than the Ameda was, but I didn't pump all that often when I had the PIS so it was bearable. I have also used just a basic single manual pump before. Abri was 18 months and still nursing twice a day and I forgot my pump on a weekend away. I wasn't ready to wean, so I stopped at Target and just picked a random manual to use. It was pretty decent considering. I'll probably use it again if I need to pump in the car or something random like that without really needing to lug around an entire bag

I have the Pump In Style Advanced. I used it when I went back to work after having DD and it did just fine for me. I have the car adapter, the battery pack, and the regular plug for it so that I can pump anywhere I need to! LOL! I also have the Medela Harmony manual pump, which is nice for more discreet pumping (like when DH and I go to a concert in August...).
