Now that most insurances cover lactation supply's and appointments is anyone going to take advantage of this and get a breast pump? I know I am going to look into it this week and see if my insurance does.

We tried. They said no which sucks more because my husband works for the Govt. You'd think that his insurance would be the firsst to cover it!

I knew that some insurance companies cover breast pumps, but I haven't had a chance to look into it yet. I plan to try to breast feed and will for sure need a pump. It would be really nice to not have to pay it all out of pocket!

I plan to exclusively pump again with this baby. If I can get a free pump I will! LOL I doubt it though.

That is good information, I will definitely check into that because good pumps are crazy expensive!  I rented one last time and it was $60 per month - that is almost what I would've spent on formula!

With my first pregnancy, my insurance covered breast pumps! It was awesome...I bought the most expensive one I could. LOL. I would love to be able to get a new one since that one is now 7 years old...I will have to ask my insurance!
