Breast pump suggestions?

I would recommend Medela Swing. I used a double and it was much more efficient.
Some of the medela swing packs some with one or two bottles. You'd need a steriliser too.

I would recommend going for a closed system. Long term, it's much safer and cleaner. I had a swing and while it was great, of you're not careful, it's easy for milk to get into the motor and that can't be cleaned/sterilised properly. Have a look at the ameda or spectra pumps, I think you can get a double for the same price as a single medela swing.

I love my spectra. Unimom is also good. Both closed systems

I used a Medela Symphony while bub was in the NICU and SCN (two months) and then went to a Swing Maxi. I used the Calma teats because they mimic breastfeeding more closely and I also liked the breastmilk storage bags.

I would avoid the medela ones unless its the hospital grade one due to the open system. Thougn its very pricey. I've used both unimom and medela symphony...and the unimom is just as good for the fraction of the price.
For bottle feeding I would go with pigeon or medela teats. But that's just my opinion and you probably need to just see what bub likes.

I was using a unimom double allegro full time and couldn't fault it. I found it as efficient as the medela symphony I used at the hospital.
You will also need bottle brush, bottles for feeding, sterilising equipment, something for milk storage (I liked the pre sterilised bags) and something to keep the milk cool if you're feeding ebm when you're out.
