Medela PISA or Freestyle? — The Bump

Medela PISA or Freestyle?

I've been researching pumps & have narrowed it down to these two, any thoughts?

Medela Pump In Style (covered 100% by my insurance)
Medela Freestyle (covered but must pay $130 upgrade)

I've heard great things about the PISA. I also like the idea of being mobile with the Freestyle, I'm just wondering if it's worth the extra cost. 

Thanks for being so patient with my pump questions.

  • I used the PISA to EP with my first, and bought a Freestyle for this time around.  They seem to work the same as far as power, suction, etc.  The non-mobility of the PISA wasn't a bit deal with a baby, as I stopped pumping right before she started crawling.  However, if you're thinking down the road, it's SO NICE to be mobile now that I have a toddler AND a baby.  I say, if you've got the extra $130, do it! 

  • I was going to write almost exactly the same as the PP.  Both seem to work about the same for me, but the portability is fabulous with the Freestyle!  Its so nice just having to throw that tiny little pump in my purse/diaper bag instead of hauling an entire extra bag for the PISA.
