My insurance covered only Lansinoh so I used only that one and it worked ok

i have the same question on what to get, medela does have a lot of good reviews but i see a lot of moms that are switching to spectra as well.

A friend gave me a Medela and it worked well.  I also got a free Ameda through my insurance company and it was of similar quality.  (Drawback to the insurance co. one is that you have to wait until after baby is born to get it).  Having two was soooo helpful though for when I went back to work.  Kept one at the office and one at home.  That way I didn't have to lug it back and forth or worry about forgetting something.

Yep, second hand Medela double pump all day! 

I second and third the Medela as well. The electric one if you can find it second hand then just buy all the accessories new is best. Get some good bras too!

I used Medela as well. Check with your insurance so you can get a free one. The strong pumps can be rather expensive.

I use the medela but never heard of Spectra.  Is it cheaper? or covered by insurance frequently?

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell us more about the Spectra? I've never heard of it! What did you like better?

I've used both the Medela and the Spectra. I personally noticed a difference when I switched to the Spectra and prefer it to the Medela. Additionally, while it is not necessarily a traditional pump, I have heard wonderful things about the Haaka.

Me too! Love my Medela!

I always had a Medela, but I loved it! I've lent it out to friends to use too, so its gone through like 8 pumping babies, but it still works!!

I only have experience with Medela. But used it for 1 year for each child and it did the job and never broke. Plus I got it free with my insurance.

I used the Medela In-Style Breast Pump. I'm pregnant now with my second and am going to use the same pump because I loved mine so much. I also used the hand held pump which I got from Target called the Haaka.

I've had the spectra and I liked it... does anyone know between Medela and Spectra, which one is more travel-friendly?

I swear Medela is the best. My best friend used hers for over 8 years with 4 kids, the last two twins. She only had to replace the tubes once. Even if your insurance doesn't cover it, it's worth using the gift cards to cover.

I had my first child 10 years ago, and our hospital did a service where they brought a pump to your house and did all the paperwork there. It was awesome. They gave me a Medela and I loved it. It got me through all 4 of my kids. IT sounds like there are new ones out that I didn't even know about, but I loved the Medela and it did a great job and our insurance covered it.

I used the Medela with my first, and went with the Spectra S2 this time. My OB just had a baby last summer and said the Spectra is amazing! I went with it because she said it is quieter than the Medela and works really well. It also has a light if you are pumping at night.

Silicon is a game changer! Check out those kind! 

Liz posted this 16 December 2019

I suggest the spectra too! 

Elizabeth posted this 25 September 2019

Spectra for sure, either one depending on your needs to be plugged in or use a battery. They are so quiet! And I get better output from the Spectra than the Medela.
