How Much Do Breast Pumps Cost?
Paying for a breast pump out-of-pocket can be expensive, especially if you’re buying an electric one. Electric breast pumps are more complex and efficient, costing much more than their simpler, manually operated counterparts. Single, manually operated breast pumps generally range from $20 to $60. Meanwhile, single battery-operated or electric pumps can cost anywhere from $40 to $185, and dual pumps anywhere from $60 to $3500.
Below is a pricing breakdown of some of our most popular breast pumps without insurance coverage:
- Ameda Breast Pumps: $125 – $300
- Ardo Breast Pumps: $130
- Elvie Breast Pumps: $299 – $550
- Lansinoh Breast Pumps: $129 – $160
- Medela Breast Pumps: $42 – $435

What About Other Breastfeeding Accessories?
Unfortunately, the spending doesn’t stop at breast pumps. Along with your pump, you’ll also need to purchase accompanying accessories like bottles, breastmilk storage bags, collection cups, blood pressure monitors, and perhaps a tote to store all these belongings.
In some cases, you’ll be able to get these accessories with your pump as a bundle through insurance. However, if you’re buying these tools separately, here’s what you can expect to pay for some of our popular pumping accessories:

How Can I Get A Breast Pump Through Insurance?
You’re in luck, mama! Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you’re likely qualified to get a breast pump through insurance! Under the ACA, all qualified health insurance plans must cover essential health benefits, including pregnancy, childbirth, and sometimes postpartum. That said, your first step should be determining your plan’s specific coverage.
To order a breast pump through insurance, review what your insurance stipulates with an agent or one of our experts. Once you learn more about your coverage, fill out our simple form and let us take care of the rest. Pumps for Mom has a wide selection of breast pumps covered by insurance and works with many health insurance providers to ensure a smooth and stress-free transition into motherhood. We got you, mama!
