Thinking about getting a new breast pump-I have an old manual one that I’m thinking about replacing...kind of interested in the haakaa, thoughts?
I don’t have any experience with haakaa but I used rumble tuff and loved them! It was actually comfortable with the inserts they have. The natural suck function would literally get everything out. It was great.
I had the haakka, worked great but wasn’t able to self pump milk. Only catch the let down from the boob I wasn’t nursing from. However it would sometimes fall if not suctioned well. Would catch about 3-4.5 oz sometimes.
Some health insurances pay for a breast pump. I went with Medela because they have great customer services. I just emailed them with my insurance information and I got a pump in 1-2weeks and didn’t have to pay for it!! And it’s a great pump.
Definitely check with your health insurance. It may cover most or all of the cost. We are fans of the Spectra model that has a rechargeable battery so we aren’t always tethered to a plug and outlet. We also use the Haaka silicone pump to capture milk when not feeding but pressure needs to be relieved.
