  • I used the Ameada, I had a gerber manuel one that I loved over all other manuel ones I tried. My Ameada went through 2 kids 2 1/2 years apart.

  • check with your insurance because i was able to get the medela model from the hospital and it was paid for because my doctor told the insurance company it was a medical neccessity. of course, we did this before we left the hospital with the baby...not sure if it would be too late for you to get it thru insurance. but i like my medela. you could always buy one off craigslist and just buy new tubing and attachments...

  • Medelas are very worth it. My aunt bought one when she had twins 11 years ago and that thing has been through like 8 babies and just now quit on us. She passed it to my other aunt, me, my sister, cousin..whoever needed it. Very high quality and worth every penny!

  • Of course you don't need a pump. I breastfed my 3 children each over 2 years and never needed a pump. You can hand express. For instructions go to google and type in breastfeeding Marmet technique for instructions .

  • It really depends on what you will be using it for. What are your pumping needs? Do you anticipate frequent times away from baby? Or just an occasional bottle? Returning to work? FT? PT? Or just a night away here and there?
