Quick! I need a good pump!

A friend of mine asked me if I could recommend a good pump for her. She is 37 weeks, and is running out of time. She doesn't have 300 bucks to spend on a medula, so she wants to know the next best thing.

I also thought about offering to sell her my medula pump in style. It was a 300 dollar pump, but idk how much to ask for it if she wanted to go that route.

I've heard they're a lot cheaper in the hospital! But also - she doesn't need to hurry, she shouldn't be pumping for 4 weeks post partum by the "rules" If she can anyways. :)

I had a Lansinoh Affinity that I liked or a Ameda brand

What's her pump[ing need? Full tiem work, Ameda Purely Yours for $150 is as inexpensive as you can go. Not working? Avent Isis or Medlea manual' $50 more or less.

Other pumps need not apply; the only ones worth using are in the $300 range.

But she should talk to her insurance company. Very likely a pump is covered.

I got some paperwork from the lactation consultant at the WIC office. I gave that paperwork to my pediatrician & he faxed it in to my insurance co. I had a medella pump n style delivered to my door the very next day free of charge.

Besides Medela Pump in Style, Ameda Purely Yours is also great!
