Any differences between the shoulder bag and back pack styles? Which do you have or would you get? Trying to decide which to put on my registry
I'll be stalking this. I really want to get a good breast pump this time around!
Thanks guys I had a VERY VERY old Medela PIS (not PISA, it was like ancient) like...so old I can't even find pictures of it online It was awful. It had a shoulder strap too but the bag was like dry rotted so I barely took it anywhere unless I HAD to. I gave it away to a mom in need knowing that I would just buy a new one with my next baby. I like the backpack idea but it's totally not my style so I think I'll just go with a shoulder bag!
Any big difference between the PISA and their hospital grade pumps? I used a hospital grade pump from WIC last time and I actually had less output than when I used my ghetto old PIS...
I rented a Lactina in the early days and I didn't like it all. I didn't find it to be very efficient. The crappy Hygeia WIC rented to me was better than it was.
Have you checked with your insurance. They have to cover them to a point now. It varies from each company. Mine just sends an Ameda PY. My favorite pump ever is the Avent Isis IQ Duo.
I didn't even think to check with my insurance. I will before my due date to figure out if they'll just write me a prescription for one or something. That would be cool. I know there's a store in the hospital I give birth in that takes prescriptions for their pumps. I want a Medela. I am used to them and know how they work! I just want a newer one that isn't from the stone age
