So I posted earlier today about some questions in regard to what is covered by insurance.
In talking with some coworkers who have my same health insurance, it seems that my (awesome!) insurance will cover whichever pump I want and that the supplier provides. I haven't called suppliers yet (I want to have as much information as I can first), but if money wasn't an issue, which pump would you choose?
In the research that I've done, I'm seeing that most people recommend either the Medela PISA or Freestyle, but maybe there are others that are great that I'm not seeing? What are the pros/cons of ones you suggest?
In regards to how I would be using it, I'm taking 12 weeks FMLA after baby is born (due 9/30) and plan to EBF during this time - maybe a pumping session here or there to build up a freezer supply for when I go back to work and/or if I'm away from baby for any period of time. When I return to work, I work a modified 2nd shift (typically something like 1-9), except for Saturdays when I work 8 AM - 1 PM. I plan to BF when I'm with baby and pump when I need to do so. I travel a lot, so will likely be doing some pumping in my car. I'm an Athletic Trainer, so sometimes I'm even out on a baseball/softball etc. field and would be using my car to pump. I don't have typical "breaks" during this time, so I will have to time it before/between/after games, so something that doesn't take long per pumping session would be ideal.
