    Default Pumping for Twins

    What is the best breast pump for twins? I was looking at the Medela pumps with double motors, but have no clue. Please help.

    If you will be staying home with your babies, and needing to pump just the occasional bottle for a sitter, you can probably get away with a less expensive pump. Maybe an Ameda Purely Yours or something like it- it's a double electric pump but it's on the cheaper end of the spectrum.

    If you're intending to return to working outside the home, and will need to pump several times a day, you probably want to spring for a really good double electric pump, something like the Medela Pump in Style.

    , except if you're working I would recommend the Medela Freestyle - it was totally worth the extra $35.

    I love my Medela Pump In Style Advance.

    Make sure to see if your insurance will pay for yours, or at least cover most of it.
