One of the most popular questions that the Breastpump Specialists at Aeroflow Breastpumps receive daily from mothers ordering their free breast pump through insurance is, “What else do I need?” Since insurance plans only cover what is considered “medically necessary” for the expression of milk, they won’t pay for tote bags, coolers or breastfeeding apparel. Many new mommies choose to purchase accessories beneficial to successful pumping out of pocket.
Benefits of nursing apparel
One of the most valuable breastfeeding accessories to add to your registry is a nursing bra or nursing tank. In fact, why not add both? You will be happy you did, as the convenience of having the appropriate nursing apparel is well worth it. One of Aeroflow Breastpumps’ favorite nursing apparel manufacturers is Rumina, who makes comfy crossover bras and flattering nursing tanks. Their stretchy cotton fit allows for hands free pumping and a seamless fit under regular clothes.
Another nursing bra you will want to check out is Medela’s Easy Expression Bustier. If you are a multitasker like most moms, this is a must have nursing accessory! Nursing apparel allows you to pump hands free so you have time to do other things. They come in black or white, and are available in many different sizes based on your bust size. They are made of a cotton and elastane mixture so you can be sure that they are super stretchy and can accommodate the many changes your breasts will be going through on your nursing journey.
Get a breastpump while you’re here
Speaking of pumping, isn’t it time you checked a breast pump off of your baby registry? Recently integrated healthcare reform under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has provided thousands of mothers across the country with a breast pump for free through their insurance. The ACA ensures that most insurance plans provide free breastfeeding support including (but not limited to) breastfeeding counseling, visits with a lactation consultant, and the best benefit yet…a free double electric breast pump!
