These are the options through my Insurance. Just looking for ideas.

I haven't used any of those 3 exact ones, but I always hear the best things about the Medela brand pumps.

My Playtex one broke the second time I used it.
Not worth it.

I had a manual with DD1 and I thought I was going to get carpal tunnel or something. Never again lol.

The Playtex is the one I used with my DS worked great. It was a wonderful pump.

Medela is the best pump IMO and I would get it since your insurance covers it because it is super expensive. I'm going through my insurance this time too for my breast pump. I have used the playtex one though with my son and it was a pretty good pump. I just like using the medela ones best. I have to get another one because my son broke the playtex one when we moved. :/

The Medela also comes with the most 'extras'

That too. I liked my playtex just fine, don't get my wrong. But this time I am definitely going with medela.

I had the Ameda Purely Yours (my insurance bought it for me) and it sucked. Actually, it didn't suck, LOL. I was lucky to get 1/2 oz. at each pumping with it. I was exclusively pumping, so I ended up renting a Medela Symphony. The Medela was so much better than the Ameda. I would definitely go with the Medela.
