Breast Pump Opinions

I am 28 weeks pregnant with #2 and plan on breastfeeding. My insurance just informed me that I can get a breast pump for free and I am trying to figure out which one would be best. I would love your opinions!

My choices are:

Hygeia Q Pump with Tote

Ameda Purely Yours Deluxe Pump

Medela Advanced Pump

Hygeia or Ameda. I would choose the Hygeia first, then the Ameda. They are both closed system pumps so milk can't get into the motor and grow mold.

Hygeia. It's actually our top pump recommendation on our resources sticky. But EITHER is good, "can't go wrong." So if for some reason the Hygeia is NOT available, the Ameda is fine too.

I have an Ameda purely yours and it works really well. I would reccomend it.

Just out of curiosity, why don't you ladies like Medela? That's the one my insurance company offers. I'm going to be a first time mom in a couple of weeks and I have no experience with breast pumps. Thanks.
