what parents are saying
Not as good as Medela Symphony but for price (potentially free with insurance) this is a great pump. Can get different flange sizes, suction is good and adjustable, easy to use, clean. (Feb 26, 2017)
This is far-and-away the favorite among weeSpring moms. It's a workhorse: reliable, easy-to-use, and effective. Or as one mom put it, "This is the Volvo station wagon of breast pumps; it may be a bit big and heavy, but it always works when you need it." It comes built into its own bag, with space for all the requisite pump parts and a little cooler to keep milk fresh. Be sure to call your insurance company--it might be free!
The Catch: It is large, which can make commuting and/or traveling with it cumbersome.
I have two of these, one for upstairs and one for down. I exclusively pump and have not had any complaints. It lasted through 7 months of pumping with my first and I am on month 4 with #2.

I work at a hospital and used the hospital grade pump but the PISA expressed more milk, even though it is louder. Easy to use and I liked the cooler bag. My milk stayed cold for over 10 hours.

I didn't love or hate this pump; it was just ok. It started out working well, but as I used it more, I seemed to get less milk when pumping. I switched to a different pump for my next little one.

I loved this about as much as you can love any breast pump. I actually had the tote bag style that I kept at work and the smaller version (not part of a bag) for home and travel, which I preferred.

After having 7children I've been through some pumps in my time. This one has exceeded them all! Easy to use and clean. It's a bag too! I carry all my pumping and breast care needs inside for conveniec

I used this pump for a year with my daughter. It worked well. Was very portable and easy to use. Only downfall was motor seemed wore out after using for a year and had to get another after having my son

Great pump! I used it several times a day for 9 months. Small and compact for travel. We loved the bottles too. Great to just put a nipple on & use! Make sure to replace the tubing every other month

Purchased this pump for my breastfeeding endeavors and I'm very much impressed as before with Medela, continuous improvement! Love the stages of pumping it provides for an easy and quick pump session!

It is but if you're going to be exclusively pumping, I'd look into the smaller one that is more portable. I forget the style but I remembered thinking it might have been nice to not be limited to a wall outlet. Not sure if you compromise power. This one will do the trick though!
I had to pump for the first four months (my son was a premie and had to be on a combo of breastmilk and formula until he was 4 months old) and then I pumped at work until he was a year. I used this pump at work but didn't like it nearly as much as the hospital grade one that I rented. It's powerful enough but the hospital grade ones are even stronger. I also had some supply issues though.
