Did you guys know you can get a breast pump for FREE with your insurance? I had NO CLUE until another mama told me. I was shopping for a pump with my first child and planning on spending way too much until a kind friend told me this (and gifted me her unused one).
I have teamed up with Aeroflow Breast Pumps to help spread the word about this awesome service! The Aeroflow website features all different types of pumps AND breast pump bags and will walk you through the process of getting what your insurance qualifies you for.
Aeroflow wants to make it as easy as possible for new moms who want the best chance to succeed at breastfeeding and pumping. All you need to do is fill out a simple form on their website and they will do the rest! Once they tell you what your insurance qualifies for, you choose the pump that suits your needs and they will ship it to you!
I received the Spectra S2 Plus breast pump bundle that comes with the Ju Ju Be breast pump bag.
The bag makes it so easy to transport your pump and accessories for pumping on the go! It is a great option for mamas that have to go back to work and need to pump! It’s even great for moms like me who may not be going back to work but might need to escape for a while or have to travel over a weekend and will need to take the pump along to maintain supply.
I started out with a Spectra 9 Plus travel pump and it works great, but with the larger full size breastpump and bag, I feel like I can get more milk in less time if need be. I used the full size Spectra S2 from Aeroflow before I had Finley to try to induce labor and try to collect some colostrum. I’ve actually used some of my saved up colostrum for baby acne and a clogged tear duct! I am also totally planning to use it over the cold months in case of colds or sickness.
The bag that came with it is large without being bulky, and provides space for all of the parts that come with your breastpump. There are also insulated pockets for pumped milk, to keep it cold until you can get it to a cooler or fridge! This bag has a lifetime warranty and is even machine washable!
