Which pump?

Hello everyone!

I am so glad I found this group! My son is 9 days old. I have been EPing for the past week or so because he refuses to latch. They started me pumping in the hospital because he wouldn't stay on my breast and I really think that helped to establish a good milk supply when my milk came in. So far I have been able to keep up and even get a little bit ahead of him (I already have 12 ounces in the freezer). I am so excited as with my other 2 children I had an extrememly low milk supply and ended up giving them formula by the time we left the hospital. No one ever offered me a pump or told me pumping was an option. So far Miles has been breastfed for 9 whole days! We bought a Lansinoh double electric breast pump from walmart and so far it has kept my supply up, but I just found out my insurance offers breastpumps as well. I have a choice of three breast pumps and I was hoping someone on this form would be knowledgeable enough to tell me which one was better and if they would be better than the pump I have now. My options are 

Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump 

Hygeia Q Breast Pump 

Medela Personal Double Pump 


Does anyone have an opinions or be able to give any advice?
