The lactina's personal part is $50 alone, then the motor is $1000. You are really going to need a hard core pump. I don't know if the PY or the purple cousin will cut it for you. I had such a crappy pump... I thought it was me for a while, I wouldn't want that to happen to you too. Not after nursing your daughter for 15m. So you know your boobs can do it!

I got on for DS for the LC. I knew I would never be able to afford my own pump, but I had to work.
Would I still have to go to the WIC appointments and stuff? We only have one car and DH works an hour away so it's such a pain. I know my insurance will only cover a rental from the hospital if I have a preemie but I wonder if mental health or D-MER or any of those issues could get it covered...hmm...I'm really trying to push WIC on him. I think we need it. He just thinks that a lot of other military families, not all, get on it because they can and he doesn't want to be one of them.
