During your pregnancy, you will have tons of decisions to make. Should you go with gender neutral colors for the nursery? Will your baby use a pacifier? Should you find out the gender of the baby, or let it be a surprise? What will you name him or her? One decision that every mother will face is whether or not to breastfeed. And if you do decide to breastfeed, then you'll probably need a breast pump — but how do you choose the best breast pump for your lifestyle?

Which Breast Pump Is Best for You?

Breastfeeding is nature's way of giving your child the best nutrition possible — your breast milk is perfect for your baby! It's not always possible or convenient to breastfeed a baby, however, especially if you are working outside of the home or need to be away from your child for even a few hours. Making the decision to pump brings with it a new set of decisions, however. With all the different types, brands, and amenities offered, which breast pump is best for your lifestyle?

There is no best breast pump for every woman, and your choice will have a lot to do with how you use the pump, what your insurance covers, and what you're comfortable using. In order to choose the best breast pump, there are a few things that you'll want to consider:

  • Do you want an electric pump or a manual one? Electric pumps are the most popular option, but some insurance plans only cover a manual breast pump.
  • If you can get an electric, will you need a single or double electric pump? Double electric pumps are highly recommended due to their convenience – why only pump one breast at a time, when you can pump both and literally cut your pumping time in half?
  • Do you need standard (27mm) shields or larger? Smaller?
  • Where will you be pumping? If you'll be on-the-go, you may want to consider a package that includes a battery pack, so you're not restricted to a location with a power outlet. You may also want to think about a cooler tote, so you have a private, safe place to store your milk until you get home. The Medela Pump-In-Style Advanced Tote might be perfect for these situations.
  • Will you need balm or another skin care product to help your body adjust to breastfeeding?

You can find out if your policy is compliant by completing the simple, three-step insurance qualification form. A breast pump specialist will contact your insurance company, verify your coverage and network status, and contact you within 3-5 business days with your options for choosing the breast pump best for your needs and coverage.
