Comparing Hygeia Breast Pump Models

     The Hygeia EnJoye Breast Pump has become our most requested pump of 2013, but the different models can be confusing.  First, all EnJoye pumps have the same motor with the same three year warranty. All three are "green" pump so they are approved by the FDA for multi-person uses so can be resold.  If you are purchasing a used Hygeia EnJoye you will need your own sanitary double pumping kit which includes the tubing, filters bottles and valves. And all three have the CARE function witch is an audio recording device to record your baby's coos or cries and play them back to assist with let down while pumping.  The distinctions are below:
Hygeia EnJoye EPS Breast Pump has an external power supply (AC adapter) only and can be purchased on our site with or without a tote.
Hygeia EnJoye EXT Breast Pump has both the AC adapter and an external AA battery pack.  You can purchase these with a brown or black tote which makes a very nice diaper bag as well.
Hygeia EnJoye LBI Breast Pump has both the AC adapter and includes an internal lithium ion rechargeable battery for moms who don't have access to an outlet and reply on a battery to pump.

The Hygeia EnJoye Breast Pump is an excellent purchase and is covered under your insurance plan if purchased from either a network provider or a DME supplier like Lactation Connection in most cases.  Always check with your insurance company for details on breast pump insurance coverage, but know that in 2013 a breast pump is covered as preventative care under the Affordable Care Act so don't take no for an answer.  Breastpumps and breastfeeding supplies are covered. 
     If your insurance company pays for breast pump rental, the Hygeia EnDeare is an excellent choice.
