Any recommendations for breast pumps? A friend told me to look for a hospital grade pump, but that I need to ask specifically for a certain brand and model when I call my insurance company, and not just "hospital grade". My doctor just told me to wait until I deliver and then ask the lactation consultant...but I would really rather get it out of the way earlier!
breast pump suggestions
Definitely check with your insurance. Mine said they would only cover a manual pump.
I used an Admena for the first few days, and I really didnt like it. Given, I was trying to pump colustrum, and it was hard. Then, I rented a Medela Symphony (which Im using now to EP for the twins). I had to start my supply with the pump,and pretty much keep it up with the pump. I really like it. Just remember, the biggest thing about a pump is making sure that you have the right sized flanges.
