The Medela has more power and is more effective at pumping out breast milk compared to the Ameda breast pump, however, while this might save you some time, remember that you will need to run the Medela for an additional minute or two after pumping to prevent mold build-up.

How do I choose a breast pump?

When buying a pump, consider whether that brand offers different fit options. Pump fit is not about breast size; it's about nipple size. It refers to how well your nipples fit into the pump opening or “nipple tunnel” that your nipple is pulled into during pumping. Pump nipple tunnels come in different sizes.

Is Ameda breast pump good?

Because I knew there was milk in my breast but the Ameda pump was not effective at getting it out. My overall experience with Ameda was good. It was effective and made pumping the most stress free and less worrisome. I liked how easy the product is to use, clean and store.

When should I get a breast pump through insurance?

We found most moms order a breast pump around week 30.
Other policies stipulate that the pump ships after birth. Then some moms will get their breast pump a few weeks after ordering regardless of the due date. Each insurance plan has its own policy when a breast pump becomes “medically necessary.”
