Also we are kind of in a tight budget, and I heard that some insurances may cover the pump through the "medical equipment" clause, is that right?
I'd check with your insurance company to see if they'll cover all or part of the cost of the pump. There's really no way to know unless you ask. If nothing else, if you have a medical reimbursement account, you should be able to get the reimbursed for the purchase of the pump.
It is also very comfortable!
Just wanted to mention that if you qualify for WIC that since you are going back to work that you can qualify for a pump for free. The income guidelines for WIC are much higher then any other program. Worth checking out.

It is well worth the price! Think of all the $$$ you will save not buying formula.
I wanted to add a pump to our registry, just in case someone is feeling super generous. I might just put them both on there and let them go from there.
I highly recommend going with a good pump even if it costs more...you are definitely going to need/want a pump that is dependable and works well if you'll be pumping a lot.
