  • 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

    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

    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

  • Love this pump. Very convenient. May 17, 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

  • I regret purchasing this product. It is extremely inconsistent. Sometimes I would pump 4 oz and then most of the time I would get 0-.5 oz. It was extremely uncomfortable to the point of painful. Apr 22, 2021

  • My last ditch effort to get more, more frequently. This made all the difference but was still a challenge to get enough for a low producer. Would definitely use again though Mar 25, 2021

  • Love love love. Very strong! Unlike the Elvie which can’t get out all my milk. It doesn’t spill if using the bags, and hard to spill when using reusable containers. I go to sleep with it on. Freedom. Mar 07, 2021

    • Sarah B.
    • United States of America

    I love that this pump is hands free and I can take it with me anywhere I go. It charges quickly and has either bags of containers to store the milk! Definitely a must for pumping moms! Feb 25, 2021

  • This makes it possible for me to pump at work, which makes breastfeeding possible for me. I haven’t even told my coworkers about it and nobody has said a thing, it’s that discreet. Spendy but worth it Feb 25, 2021

  • + convenient for multitasking; has several pump intensity options; leak proof if you follow instructions carefully - expensive; proprietary single-use milk storage or reusable milk containers Feb 24, 2021

  • Freedom! I love this pump. The design is attractive, the reusable milk containers now make it so much more eco-friendly, and being able to move freely while pumping is worth its weight in gold! Dec 10, 2020

  • The willow is so easy to use and I get great output since the suction is strong! It is pretty bulky and not very discreet but between using this and being stuck to a wall I choose this! Dec 06, 2020

  • I love the convenience of this product! You ca literally pump anywhere and everywhere! I was able to be an over producer bc of the willow! Def a must have! Dec 06, 2020

  • There is definitely a learning curve in the beginning but I absolutely love this pump. I’m a nurse on a busy unit and it’s the only reason I was able to pump Oct 17, 2020

  • I have a generation 1. It was ok to use. Barely got any milk put like my medela. Very hard to latch and expensive. I bought it for the fact that it had no wires. Sep 07, 2020

  • Pros: NO CORDS! Easy to use while still being active, which is amazing. Easy clean Cons: Suction not near as strong as Medela pump. Can’t change to let down mode manually so output is low sometimes. Aug 24, 2020

    I have the 1st generation so I will guess that the new ones have all the kinks worked out. It still was an amazing product once you got the hang of it. The support team helps out immensely. Aug 14, 2020

  • I did not have a great experience with these. They are heavy and hard to get a latch. I ended up struggling with milk production and had to use another pump. The app is also not accurate. Jul 27, 2020

  • I wanted to love this pump but expectations fell short. No matter what I did (even working with Willow Support) I never could get the pumps to expression mode & was left feeling like I wasted money. Jul 12, 2020

  • Love/hate. Gives the gift of flexibility but at the cost of lower output. Do not depend on as primary pump (use Spectra), but enjoy time out of the house with the Willow for maintenance pumping. Jun 23, 2020

  • Tried these when they first came out and I was impressed! Comfortable, easy to use. It actually extracted the same exact amount of milk as my Medela PIS. Jun 23, 2020

  • I can't say enough good things about this pump. I absolutely love it. Jun 10, 2020

  • LOOK NO FURTHER! This breast pump is like no other. This pump starts of in the stimulation phase and once it detects “let down” the suction will increase slowly. I can use this pump and be mobile! May 20, 2020

  • I’m currently pumping, eating & writing this review. This pump allows you to do it all! You can get containers & bags for this. The bags are spill proof. I’ll even go for a run in these bad boys May 18, 2020

    • Toni R.
    • Victorville , California

    I am neutral only because I didn’t end up going many place or work to needs these like I expected but it’s a pricey item, very quite but sort of complicated. Great for a full time working mom. May 03, 2020

  • pump is amazing and works great for being hands free especially while at work. It's nice having the option to be spill proof or use the reusable contianer with the 2.0, it does have strong suction May 03, 2020

  • This has saved me! i am a nurse and it can sometimes get busy, leaving me with little time (let alone a half hour) to go pump. This pump allows me to continue working while pumping! I love it! Apr 26, 2020

  • This pump has been an absolute game changer for me. I was about to stop breastfeeding and could not find the time at work. The willow allows me to pump in meetings, during travel, and working out! Apr 18, 2020

  • Completely changed my nursing/pumping game. I have pumped in meetings, while driving, cooking, etc. I would have stopped nursing by now if it wasn't so easy to pump with Willow! Mar 31, 2020

  • After a long process to get a rep to call me back... I can say now I love the willow. I used it on a plane and while in a rush to get ready! It’s quiet and easy to use once you get the hang of it. Mar 25, 2020

  • Suction is very strong even for someone who likes strong suction.The bags are a hassle I recommend the new reusable container w/the willow 2 and buy a 2nd charger.Not a discreet pump when wearing it. Mar 25, 2020

  • It is a hit or miss on whether it's going to work, I've watched all the videos on trouble shooting and it takes so much time getting it to work right and its $$$ Mar 11, 2020

  • This pump is very intense. It is very hard to figure out and honestly I never did figure out how to use it without it damaging my nipples. It also would not empty my milk. Mar 03, 2020

    • Sadaf K.
    • Morton Grove, Illinois

    LIFE CHANGING!!! I love this pump so much. Especially now that there is also a reusable container. I have pumped everywhere imaginable and suction is very strong. Truly worth the investment. Feb 18, 2020

  • I wanted to love this pump so much but after one use it bruised my nipples. Additionally I only got about an once out when I usually get 4. Ended up hating it and being out 500 Feb 17, 2020

  • I love this breast pump. I bought this for my second child. I absolutely loved the hands free aspect of this pump. I could easily do tasks like taking care of my 4 year old while pumping. Feb 14, 2020

  • This pump is the only reason I was able to pump with my second child. I work in an er and could never find the time to go away for 20-30 minutes. Willow made pumping possible. Feb 12, 2020

    • Erin H.
    • Sheboygan , Wisconsin

    I use the pump frequently and I really do like the convenience. I can cook dinner while pumping or be present with my older child. The only draw back is that it tends to have a little less suction. Feb 11, 2020

  • It’s nice to be mobile while pumping but for having a larger chest it looks odd when I have them on and I don’t feel like I get the same output as my spectra. Feb 04, 2020

    • Katie G.
    • San Marcos , California

    I recently purchased the willow pump before returning to work full time. It’s a love/hate relationship so far, it doesnt pump nearly as much as my Medela and it doesnt always work. Jan 13, 2020

    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.
