Any mother's planning to breastfeed?  Breast pumps are unfortunately a necessary thing if you're planning to breastfeed and buying a pump isn't cheap.  Here is an article that helps give suggestions on ways to get your breast pump covered by insurance. A little financial help can't hurt, there are so many things to buy to prepare for your LO!

I so wish this would have been the case when I bought my Medela Pump In Style. I absolutely love it but hated the almost $300 price tag. Granted it will pay for itself in no time considering we have not had to buy any formula, it still would have been nice to have it covered by insurance. If any of you plan on breastfeeding I strongly recommend you look into getting a good double electric pump, even if you don't think you will use it a lot, especially if you can get it covered by insurance. You will be surprised by how often you may need to pump after your LO is here, and the double electrics are MUCH faster which is important when you don't have much time to pump while taking care of a newborn.

And I will give a plug to the Medela Pump In Style, I did a lot of research when it came to picking a breast pump, this one was the most recommended and now that I have been using it for almost a month I can see why, 2 thumbs up! :smileywink:
