I rented a medela symphony hospital grade pump while my ds was recently in the nicu and it was well worth it. Especially with out having to pay full price for a pump right away. I was able to pump more than enough milk for him as well as build up a freezer storage. I'd definitely look into renting a hospital grade pump.

I'd definitely go with the hospital grade pump. You may want to ask one of the hospital lactation consultants about it --my hospital actually provides free pump rental while the baby is in the NICU.

Re: Suggestions Please

As the mom of 4 NICU babes, one who is in right now, I would go with the Symphony. I have found a difference in my response with the Symphony versus the PISA but part of that is that I also use the Symphony when around him which also improves production. How many weeks gestation is your LO? My answer might would change depending on how long you expected to be EP. And hang in there on the NICU roller coaster, it can be a tough road

My insurance pays for the rental of a hospital grade pump while baby is in NICU. You might call your insurance and ask if you get a minute ( I know you are busy).

I love my PISA if you end up just buying one. It's great!

Even if your ins. co. says they won't pay for a rental, call the medical supply place anyway. I called Blue Cross and they told me they would not cover a rental or offer any sort of discount. I called my local medical supply place and they told me the BCBS agent was wrong. I had an order faxed from my OB-GYN and the medical supply place took care of everything. They made sure there was the correct diagnostic codes used and fed-ex'd me a freestyle overnight. Good luck! Remember the milk you are giving your LO is the best medicine!

I have another small child under the age of two and the manual one is just not working for us. Price is not an issue, but I don't want to buy the most expensive one, if someone has had great results and would recommend one of the cheaper ones. I am not sure if the most expensive ones are the best kwim? Looking for any suggestions.

Thanks
Medela Pump in Style!
