If you’re in the market to purchase a pump, you’ve probably noticed there are hundreds of different options and styles to choose from. Medela is a leading brand in breast pumps, has the best reviews, and is the most trusted name in production. Medela offers quite a few different styles of pumps; the one most popularly sold being the Pump in Style Advanced (PNSA) model.

Medela PNSA Starter Set

The PNSA comes in different packages, from the Starter Set to the Metro, and all these packages come with different amenities to suit every woman’s needs. The Tote and Messenger bag are two of the most popularly sold packages for the PNSA, and are both available for purchase through Aeroflow Breastpumps’ online store.

The Medela Pump in Style Advanced Tote

This is a double electric pump that comes with tubing, two breast shields (24 mm), and two milk storage containers. This package also comes with a battery pack (so you are not restricted to an outlet to pump), an insulated cooler tote and contoured ice packs (four extra milk storage containers also come with this pack), and a Tote bag. The pump motor is stationary to the Tote bag, which can be a nuisance if you want to throw the pump and accessories in a different bag, or want to toss the Tote into the wash for the day.

The Medela Messenger Bag

This kit does not come with a pump, but is most commonly purchased to accompany the Medela Starter Set (the PNSA motor. The Starter set comes with the double electric pump motor, tubing, two breast shields and two milk storage containers). The Messenger Bag Special includes the battery pack, insulated cooler tote, 4 milk storage containers, and contoured ice packs, and the Messenger bag itself. Since the pump is not included specifically in this kit, the motor is removable from the bag, which affords quite a bit more freedom to moms who may want to switch bags, or wash their bag.

Both of these sets have gotten stellar reviews from moms who have purchased them, and continue to be the most popular pump options among mommies-to-be. These items can be a little expensive, but with the Healthcare Reform Act enforcing insurance companies to provide coverage of breast pumps, the upgrade options such as the Medela Messenger Bag or Tote, are affordable and can be paid with HSA or FSA accounts.
