LOVE: 62 NEUTRAL: 38
REGRET: 19 WANT: 174
  • These were expensive. I loved the concept but they malfunctioned so much that they caused me more stress than good . I do not suggest this product. Oct 31, 2022

  • I am back and forth on this one. 95% of the times I use it it’s so uncomfortable that I regret spending $500+ on this! But the convenience makes it indispensable. Oct 05, 2022

  • Good: 1.mobility- you could walk around with it, but can’t bend over when wearing containers. You could seal them for a moment and bend over or just bend your knees. 2. It pumps a decent amount Sep 28, 2022

  • This is a hands free lifesaver I love my willow and their support team is AMAZING. I love not having to be stuck to an outlet. Sep 13, 2022

  • Did not like. Kept leaking. Didn’t hold enough milk and was hard to wear. It was hard to clean with all the crevices. Would not recommend. Aug 29, 2022

  • This pump is definitely not discreet. It makes your breasts so big and it is loud. I use it but I honestly wish I would’ve gotten the Elvie. They are finicky and honestly a pain in the butt. Aug 07, 2022

  • For my 3rd baby I loved the idea of hands free pumping, but the Willow fell short. I get quite a bit less output than my Spectra and more clogged ducts. I might try the new Willow Go. Aug 05, 2022

  • These are a lifesaver! There was a steep learning curve for me but after I got it down I was able to use for almost 2 years of pumping. These pumps supplemented my heavier hospital grade pump. Jul 29, 2022

  • I loved my Willow, especially the option to pump into bags or containers! I would pump at work while charting, driving, even doing house work! It does have a learning curve & will hurt your nipples. Jul 16, 2022

  • I found myself only using this pump at night and a few times while working. The few times I did use it, the pump was amazing! I'm a 36 D and it fit very comfortably. I barely noticed it was on! Jul 09, 2022

  • There is a steep learning curve with this pump. Overall it is fantastic and a good hands free option, but it can be hard to adjust to. Jul 03, 2022

  • I never got this pump to work for me. It was too painful to use and I know I was sized properly. I really wanted it work but I sold it after 2 months. It looked to bulky to use in public. Jun 21, 2022

  • I enjoy the convenience and being able to use bags or containers. But the output seems to be inconsistent and I hate how large it is. There’s also a big learning curve for the price tag May 27, 2022

  • I love having the ability to manage my twins while they’re awake and still pump. The pump can be glitchy at times so I’ve wasted 5-10 minutes trying to get it to work during my pump time at work. May 16, 2022

  • Works well but the accessories are sold separately and are expensive. The storage bags are pretty much sold out in stores right now and the places that do have them are charging .75-1.00 per bag May 07, 2022

  • Makes pumping so much easier, yes there is a learning curve, but there are resources to help. I chose this over selfie because of the bags. With the bags you can bend over w/o spillage! Mar 30, 2022

  • This is a great option for the moon on the go. There is a learning curve to get going which can be frustrating. Feb 28, 2022

  • I was very nervous to order this expensive pump. I did not respond to freemie cups at all. But I absolutely love it ! The suction is great, so convenient and the app is so user friendly and helpful. Feb 21, 2022

  • This is an essential for me. I have used this when we have company and also when out and about. Breastfeeding can be isolating, especially if you are having to pump to try to build supply. Feb 21, 2022

    • Lana H.
    • Greenville, South Carolina

    This pump made exclusively pumping possible. I tried other pumps, but this was by far my favorite. The convenience and freedom make the price tag well worth it. Feb 20, 2022

  • Very hard to position correctly, only held 4oz per bag, and got expensive with all the bags required. Feb 01, 2022

  • Too many parts that are too expensive. Jan 22, 2022

  • I had gen 1 with my first and gen 3 with my second. This is the only way my kids were able to have breast milk after I went back to work. They are expensive but worth it if you need to pump discreetly Jan 16, 2022

  • I love this for convenience, but price is steep and the output was less than my Spectra pump. Jan 12, 2022

    • Nikki W.
    • South Fulton, Tennessee

    Love this pump. Very convenient. Jan 06, 2022

    • Da O.
    • Keenesburg, Colorado

    I don't love it but I don't hate it. The amount of money I spent on this guy I wish it was "better." I did use it when I was traveling and for that I am grateful. I did not get the output I expected. Dec 29, 2021

  • This is the most leaky pump on the market. It barely empties your breast and waste milk everywhere. GO WITH ELVIE Dec 08, 2021

  • I wanted to love my willow. It's convenient. But I have large breasts and over produce which don't work well with the willow. I also spend way too much time troubleshooting this pump Dec 03, 2021

  • I was working in a hospital and used these all the time while working. I also have used them on trains. Super portable, easy to clean since the milk is going in a bag. Nov 20, 2021

    • MJ W.
    • Bethel Park, Pennsylvania

    This pump has been a lifesaver for me. With 3 kids ages 4-newborn and having an over supply more often than not the only way I can pump is with Willow. I can pump while cooking, and changing diapers! Nov 15, 2021

    • Nicole A.
    • Twentynine Palms , California

    These did not extract milk nearly as efficiently as medela and the flanges hurt!! They were uncomfortable and were hard to actually wear at work. I regret purchasing. Nov 14, 2021

  • I love that I can do so much while wearing this pump. I laid in bed and watched a movie, did chores. It is so handy to be able to move around. I can hardly tell I’m pumping most of the time. Nov 09, 2021

    • Zea Z.
    • Roberts, Wisconsin

    Wanted to love this but it did not work well. Suction was not powerful and not easy to get the pump on correctly to get a good seal. The bags were hard to place and the shell popped off easily. Oct 29, 2021

  • I don’t know what I would do without this pump. I have an 18 months old and 2 month old. Not being attached to cords is so liberating. Very easy to use, clean, and I love having the app! Aug 11, 2021

  • I had a love hate relationship with the willow. It was amazing when it worked and was so convenient. But sometimes it didnt want to start and I needed to pump asap, didnt always have the patience. Jul 20, 2021

  • This pump is a gamechanger! I hated all the tubes of the spectra, and Willow gives me such freedom. Make sure you measure carefully, because it's a lot more finicky with flange size than other pumps. Jul 16, 2021

    • Alisa P.
    • Orangevale, California

    My best splurge purchase that I actually looked forward to using! YES, there is a learning curve but your body adjusts & they work amazing! No output issues. Easy to use while getting chores done! Jul 13, 2021

  • So convenient esp at work or taking care of another child as well. With a regular pulp I felt I was working around the clock to keep baby fed toddler fed ext I suggest watching the videos of empty pro Jun 29, 2021

  • A great handsfree hidden pump with extreme suction. They didn't empty me like other pumps but great for when you can't use the more bulky and conspicuous pumps. Expensive pump Jun 09, 2021

    • Laura W.
    • Sacramento, California

    This pump give freedom but hurt my nipples with such strong suction. I also never got the output I found from my Spectra. It is nice to be able to move but I am not sure it warrants the price. May 30, 2021

  • Okay, this was a game changer in my breastfeeding journey. It has never been easier and I wasn’t stuck to the wall. The freedom is wonderful! Does take some practice but once you go it, it’s GREAT May 01, 2021

  • Complicated and has a mind of its own. Do not recommend!!!! You'll spend the same about of time figuring it out than you would tied to a pump May 01, 2021

  • Bought Willow Generation 3 the day it came out on my way home from the hospital with my fourth kid. I like high suction, so it worked well for me. Loved that it was discreet (enough) and hands free. Apr 23, 2021

    Why weeLove Milkflow Lactation Cookies:

    In case you need a valid excuse to eat cookies, here’s a really good one: boosting milk supply. Nursing moms need to fuel their bodies to keep up with the demands of milk production and new parenthood. (If you’ve been wearing the same pants for three days—we get it, girl!) While lactation teas, capsules and powders aren’t for everybody, cookies most certainly are.

    Milkflow™ from UpSpring created the first ever lactation cookies made with the dream team of ingredients: Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle. These two essentials work together to help naturally promote breast milk supply in those early days, during your baby’s growth spurts (when you’re glued to the glider for feedings!), and pumping sessions.

    Available in Oatmeal Raisin and Double Chocolate Chip, cookies are non-GMO and made in the USA with all natural ingredients. These tasty treats come in packs of two—perfect for tossing in your diaper bag for a healthy snack on the go. Each box comes with 10 packs (20 cookies total), so you’ll be able to keep your milk production going strong while keeping “Hangry Mom Running Errands” at bay. It’s a win-win.
