[Amazon.ca] Medela Pump in Style Breast Pump $229.97

It looks like there's a newer model (Medela Pump in Style "Maxflow") so the older Pump in Style pumps are marked down.

Price is showing as $229.97 on Amazon.ca and Walmart.ca.

You can price match at babies r us and if you have a registry there you get an extra 15% off I think?

Medela's are the gold standard for pumps and my wife has one but she has basically stopped using it since getting a haakaa silcone manual pump for $20!

Prefers the manual?

Yeah, but it's not really "manual". It essentially suctions to one breast while you feed baby with the other, and then switch. Saves tons of time, less cleaning, you don't leak everywhere while feeding and it works remarkably well if you ask me!

She got this one: https://www.amazon.ca/Haakaa-Manual-Sil ... 81&sr=8-11

We ended up getting a crazy deal on the Freestyle Medela over the summer with the Shoppers bonus redemption event. Essentially we only paid like $150 with tax.

I know, I know, no time machine and it depends on your PC points.

But funny enough my wife doesn't even use the pump anymore. She's been nursing him on demand when he's hungry. The odd time she'll pump but maybe once every 2 weeks when baby is going through a growth spurt.

Everyone's situation will always be unique so do what you think works best for you. She has a Hakka pump too but doesn't use it either

Her advice would be to see a lactation consultant. They're usually free for 6 weeks (Ontario) or so and they were a tremendous help. We had no idea what we were doing the first 2 weeks and were topping up with formula but cut that out quickly after seeing the consultant.

It's a good pump. I got a lightly used one that I can sell for $100. Pick up in New Westminster, BC.

Make sure you check your insurance. Mine covered $300 for breast pump back then when I had my first child. Just needed a written prescription from a Physician.

It's really difficult to price match Amazon since they won't do anything that has "prime" on it.

Don't forget to check your benefits, you have coverage on breast pump.
May also need a Drs note as well.

I've been able to do it twice in the past couple of months. It even says on their website they won't price match Amazon but I had no issues at all!?

To expand, even if you don't, check ebay for brand new insurance issued ones. My wife got a dual model for less than $100 shipped. Even came with the owners insurance info lol.

I’ve tried a few times and wasn’t able to. If the website says they won’t price match Amazon, then it’s probably YMMV that you had them matched.

Oh man, my wife bought this but ended up using the Medela way more. The manual pump is now a paper weight after one use. :S
Baaaaaaaaa!

Great deal for a Medela! However, how much you use it really depends on how you plan to feed your baby. If you exclusively breastfeed with the occasional bottle, I wouldn't spend the money on it, a manual pump works great for that (not Haakaa, actual hand powered manual pump). If you pump exclusively and feed your baby using bottles, then yeah definitely get an electric pump.

For the first few weeks, I breastfed most of the time and gave baby two bottles during the night (so my husband could feed and I could rest). Then baby started going longer stretches in the night so we stopped the bottle and breastfed on demand, and now my electric pump is just collecting dust. Good thing we got it for free from a friend who didn't need hers anymore!

Also should note that I know people who have had mastitis and needed an electric pump - I can't speak for that as I fortunately didn't have clogged ducts.
