You could register for backflow protectors, duck bills, hands free pump bra,Medela pump n save bags. Which bottles do you have on your registry? Wide mouth bottles are the only ones that fit directly into the flange. If you can pay for the upgrade then the s1 is definitely worth it.
The S2 is fine. I have both and the S1 is nice but not a must have. The nenesupply extra parts on Amazon work great. I had a bunch so that I could run them through the dishwasher and they worked just like the original parts. We used Avent bottles which hook up to the pump parts directly.
I had an S1 while pumping for DS last year and having the built in battery was really nice. Mine was an $80 upcharge vs. the S2 which I could have gotten for free from insurance. It was worth $80 to me.
I’ll second the nenesupply items from Amazon. Duckbills, backflow protectors, wide mouth bottles and lids. Maybe a cooler that holds wide mouth bottles. (Or a nice water bottle/thermos if that’s how you choose to transport milk). If you’ll be pumping often I’d also suggest a couple wet dry bags.
Check with your insurance to see if they cover parts, as well. Mine paid for a new parts kit every 90 days, and I was able to sign up to have them sent to me automatically until I confirmed that I wasn't pumping anymore. I never ended up needing to pay OOP for anything pump related.
