I used my Medula freestyle breast pump for a year with my daughter who was born in 2010. I pumped 1x/day and then 4-5x/day the 2-3 days/week I worked. I was going to replace the tubing and parts, but figured the breast pump would be fine for this baby due in June (where I will pump about the same amount of time).
Then I found out my insurance company will provide one free of charge - the Medula personal double. It's $125 charge to get the Medula freestyle. I liked the freestyle, so I am hesitant to switch the personal double. I was thinking that I would use my old pump and then go through my insurance if it isn't working as weel, but I found out that I only have 30 days after birth to actually order it.
I am wondering if I should just pay for a new freestyle. Any thoughts? Anyone need to replace their pump?
