This is the pump to get if portability is important to you; it has a clip-on battery pack, so you can actually pump on-the-move. (One weeSpring user says she pumped while washing dishes, riding in the car, etc.) Moms absolutely rave about Medela's customer service, too.

The Catch: Some complain that the suction isn't strong enough.

  • I have the medela double breast pump And I love it! Mar 22, 2017

  • A breast pump highly recommended by working mom as it us very light weight Mar 16, 2017

  • Best pump I've tried, and I was able to get it through my insurance company this time around! I wouldn't be able to go back to work with out it. Mar 09, 2017

  • A definite must have - can use while cooking, in the car, at work, etc. Mar 07, 2017

    At first I loved this pump. But its not really one for constant use. After about 3 months the motor started going out in it! Mar 07, 2017

  • Wanted to be hands free, but pump is different than the pump in style. Even on highest setting did not empty breasts fully. Also, quite loud. Parts are harder to find and more expensive. Feb 28, 2017

  • Love that you can change bags , not connected to the bag Feb 24, 2017

  • This pump does the job, but isn't very high powered. Wish it had a little more power and suction. Feb 03, 2017

  • I love this pump! I love being mobile around the house while I pump. This pump has great suction. The battery has a long run time without being recharged. Jan 30, 2017

  • This is my favorite pump! I love the convenience of being able to pump while doing other things. The pump itself is small and can be clipped on. It's relatively quiet yet still powerful. Jan 13, 2017

  • I LOVE this pump. I love the size and convenience of it. I was worried about suction after using the symphony in the hospital but the transition to this freestyle was seamless Jan 11, 2017

    I liked this. Owned it with my previous babies and I felt like I got adequate output and it was so nice to have it travel so easily and compact with me I felt my body responded better to this than PIS Jan 06, 2017

  • Love! Made my life so much easier. Very light weight and can walk around and do things around the house. Don't feel "plugged" to walk line with pump in style . Jan 01, 2017

    I love that this pump is light weight and portable. I can clip it to my belt and go about doing house work and taking care of the kids. Definitely one of the best pumps on the market. Dec 31, 2016

  • Nice pump, quite compact. Dec 30, 2016

  • I loved this pump. It was easy to use for this first time mom. Dec 20, 2016

  • This is my second pump, having the Pump in Style for my first. I travelled for work with my first and lugging around the Pumo in Style was a hassle! This is amazingly compact, battery lasts forever. Dec 14, 2016

    Super portable, I wear around house while doing chores or in the car. Rechargeable battery and compact design. Only problem I have is the suction is not as strong like my pump in style advanced. Dec 05, 2016

    I have reviews about how this pump doesn't produce as much as the Pump in style advance. This pump produces just as much or more milk. I love how portable it is too. Dec 01, 2016

  • Recommended by a coworker, but I haven't tried it yet! Nov 29, 2016

  • I can do whatever and still pump comes with a belt so you can move around the house with it. Nov 16, 2016

  • Great pump. Love that it comes with a cooler to store milk at work. Parts are easy to wash and assemble. Love the carrying case "purse." I throw my lunch in there and I'm off to work. Oct 20, 2016

  • Expensive. Poor yield. Kept losing suction due to the way the valve works. Ended up with plugged ducts. My lactation consultant told me that's a common problem with this pump. Oct 11, 2016

  • This is portable, has great battery life, pumps well, easy to clean. Great for pumping at work. What more would you want? Oct 11, 2016

  • Q: Will this last for more than one child?

    asked by Brooke D. - Mar 26, 2014

  • Yes, wife used for twins and then a 3rd baby. Just be careful with the lcd screen. That broke and then you have to guess battery and power level.

    Kyle S. - Mar 26, 2014

  • I used this for 3 kids in 7 years and LOVED it! Never had any issues and it travels well too.
