@MrsB1015:  hmm I am going to have to do more research on this now! My dr still recommends Medela and my friends who have used pumps all used Medela with no issues so that’s what I was planning on getting, but I guess I will look into both Medela and Ameda a little more first! Thanks for sharing!

I actually just clicked on this because I thought these were baby names you were considering! Shows what I know!

@MrsB1015:  They do sound very made up, but they’re also kind of pretty. Not worth the awkwardness in all the mommy groups, though 😀

Yeah I always heard great things about the Medela pumps from my pumping friends/coworkers, so that’s a tough one. My medical equipment place for my insurance has 2 Medela pumps and a Hygeia EnJoye for my insurance, but only the Hygeia is available right now, so that is likely what I’m going to get. It’s also a closed system – haven’t heard any reviews from people I know about it yet, though!

@MrsB1015:  I just wanted to seriously THANK YOU for making this post!

 My friend gave me her Medela pump, after having used it for 14 months with her twin boys. I was grateful and was just going to get new tubes and suction cups and just go with it.  Until I read this post! I did more research about the open system mold issue and it was a real red flag.   This morning I decided to call my insurance to see what type of coverage I get, and I get 100% coverage on an electric pump thru Byram (like you!) or Edge Park supplies..so I am now going to go with the Ameda purely yours + bag, so thanks to you =)
