How to Choose the Right Breast Pump For You

Finding the right breast pump can feel very overwhelming as there are so many options.  At Insurance Covered Breast Pumps, we offer only the best brands from top manufacturers so you can feel confident in your choice of breast pumps. There are a few questions that you should ask when choosing your breast pump.

Some pumps are battery operated so you don’t need to be tethered to a wall with an outlet. It allows for way more flexibility as where and when you pump. However, the pumps that plug into the wall can offer stronger suction, meaning you can pump more in less time.

If you are someone who is on the go, then a battery-operated pump is probably the best solution for you. Some of our pumps tuck into your bra, keeping them hidden from sight, while others offer battery packs but have stronger suction when plugged into an outlet. Additionally, if a pump has a built-in battery, it can often be heavier than those without.

If you are someone who is planning on pumping at work in a designated area at designated times, then plugging into an outlet is probably your best solution.

2. How often do you plan to pump?

If you are planning on breastfeeding most of the time, and only pumping when necessary, then having a pump that stays plugged into a wall should work for you!

3. Do you need to travel with your pump?

If you plan to travel with your pump, you will need a lightweight and battery-operated model. You may not pump as many ounces, but it will give you the ability to pump anytime and anywhere.
