REGRET: 16 WANT: 165
  • 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

    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

  • 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

    • Eden M.
    • Treasure Island, Florida

    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

    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.
