REGRET: 10 WANT: 125
  • 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

    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

    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

    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

  • Great for multitasking even better now with the reusable container. I love the freedom it gives to be able to do other tasks while pumping, especially with a toddler and a newborn. Jan 03, 2020

  • I’m still in the learning curve using this pump. I would recommend the containers when just starting out until your pumping quite a few ounces at each session or you will waste the bags. Dec 31, 2019

  • This is a game changer for pumping convenience! I can pump anywhere including laying down or bending over and still get the same output as my regular pump. The bags are convenient too. Nov 09, 2019

  • This is the best pump out there, hands down. The suction is great, the convenience of not being stuck to the wall, and now the current reusable container! I cannot speak highly enough for this pump! Nov 05, 2019

  • This is a must have for on-the-go working mommas! It was super easy to use and I was able to pump in my car while driving to a meeting, while on a conf call, or simply while doing dishes at home! Sep 19, 2019

  • I use my willow as my main pump now. It’s very bulky but it comes in so handy when I need to do other tasks. Mine stays charged for 6- 25 minute sessions. The suction is strong and it works very well. Sep 10, 2019

    • Haley M.
    • Asheville, North Carolina

    I really wanted to love this pump, but between milk staying in the flex tube, painful suction, alignment problems and the cost of bags; I have to say I regret it. Sep 06, 2019

  • Not the best in the auction department even with all its different levels I never felt like it performed like my other electric pumps which is unfortunate Aug 30, 2019

  • Actually hands free! I can pump while working instead to sequestering myself to the mothers room- aka conference room. Aug 27, 2019

  • This is a VERY expensive product not covered by insurance. And maybe it's just me/learning curve, but I can't get it to consistently create seal or get accurate volume measurement. Wouldn't buy again. Aug 25, 2019

  • i had such high hopes for this as an exclusively pumping mom however it was a complete fail. It was so painful to use, the bags would get full of air, and output was bad. Not what i thought it would b Aug 16, 2019

  • Just got the Willow Pump after 4 months. So far so good! There is a learning curve and my breasts are still getting used to the different type of pump. Pump of the future with some few updates. Aug 07, 2019

  • I really wanted to love this. No matter how hard I tried and how many videos I watched, air got in the storage bags. I wish I could send it back and get refunded. Jul 31, 2019

  • It is convenient, but a little painful. It doesn't empty me really well, and not as discreet as I had hoped. I use when I can't get to my other pump. Jul 12, 2019

  • This pump is very convenient and it nice for working moms or moms on the go alot. It look a few uses to figure out how to get it align correctly. Jun 21, 2019

  • This was the only way i could keep pumping when i went back to work as a floor nurse. You can reuse the bags with hacks. The app is useless and it only comes w/ 1 charger for the two pumps Jun 17, 2019

    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.
