  • I actually use this pump everyday. It is nice because I ca virtually do anything while pumping and the charge is amazing. BUT it does occasionally leak which I hate. You have to be mostly upright. Oct 15, 2021

    My FAVORITE pump!! It’s so convenient and allows me to get things done today while still pumping. Perfect any mom Oct 13, 2021

  • Pros: Freedom!!!! Easy to clean. Quiet. Kind of discreet. Cons: Need to purchase extra flanges and collection cups. Expensive. Can be pinchy when holding baby. Can't bend, tilt, shake around. Oct 05, 2021

  • So convenient! Simple to use, wonderful if u don’t want to be tied to a cord. It will leak if u bend. I’ve gotten used to squatting! Sep 26, 2021

  • I was an under producer so I had to constantly pump to get my supply up, being able to be mobile while pumping was a game changer, I'll never go back to the wall pump. Sep 14, 2021

  • Yes yes and yes! One of the best things we bought! Gives you free hands, allows the phone to track how much milk has been pumped! Aug 18, 2021

    I love the concept of my Elvie and maybe this was my fault but I had so much letdown from the other breast that I lost a lot of milk with the single pump. Also the App was glitchy. Aug 12, 2021

  • Breastfeeding game changer! This is one of my most favorite baby items. Being able to wear it and it be virtually silent is amazing. My son was in the NICU and I could pump anywhere. Must have! Aug 11, 2021

  • Eh it was alright in an emergency but I preferred to hand pump. They just had too many issues for me. Leaking and not being able to get them on right Aug 06, 2021

    I used this as my primary pump for 2 months. The Elvie is small & cordless but, incorrectly measures amount pumped. It does not fully empty breasts, looses suction often & stops when you lean over. Jul 22, 2021

  • Two weeks PP I bought this pump and it was a game changer. A lot less painful compared to my spectra and easier. The only issue I had was it would spill over if I bent down. Will use again next baby. Jul 21, 2021

  • $500 I will never get back. I have elastic nipples and within 5 mins of pumping my nipple is blocking the holes to create suction. Becaus of this I lost milk production. Also not silent like marketed Jul 11, 2021

  • I have a love/hate relationship with my elvies. They allowed me to pump while driving and when the LO would sleep on me, but leaked whenever I moved. Kind of defeated the purpose of a wearable pump. Jul 10, 2021

  • Game changer for those of us who have to pump while driving. Jun 28, 2021

    • Erin T.

    I love using this pump while on the go - it's very discreet and portable. Unfortunately, do not get as much output as my Spectra S1 (primary pump) and have had frequent issues with suction/leakage. Jun 09, 2021

  • I love this pump! It’s so perfect because I can just place it in my bra and not have to worry about holding it or manually pumping it! Highly recommend to anyone breast pumping! Jun 04, 2021

  • Had a electric corded pump and hated it so I gave in and purchased the elvie. Game changer. Love that I can move around and even leave the house. Worth the price. May 26, 2021

  • Did not like this pumps. Output was so low compared to spectra s2 and they are mobile but can't really do much because they leak way to much with pretty much any movement. Not worth the money. May 23, 2021

  • A must have if you are going to be an exclusive pumper having the freedom to go out to run errands or to travel, I’ve started using this as my main pump and so far no regrets I haven’t seen a decrease May 18, 2021

  • I was so excited about these pumps, but disappointed after purchasing them. I did not get as much milk when pumping as my normal pump. Apr 28, 2021

  • This pump was a life saver with a newborn and a toddler to chase, simply not being tied to the wall made this pump amazing, I was able to change a diaper and get my toddler a water or snack Apr 14, 2021

  • I really loved my elvie with my first child. It's hard to beat the convenience of a pump like this plus you do not have to keep buying bags. However, the pump did leak at times and didn't always work. Apr 10, 2021

  • By far the best baby product that I have bought thus far! The Elvie saved my breastfeeding journey! I literally pump everywhere, in the car, out to eat. I can’t say enough good things about the Elvie! Apr 08, 2021

  • Great hands free option for pumping, but there is a learning curve. I'm able to move around and snack haha. Join the facebook group for helpful tips a tricks. Mar 31, 2021

  • Seriously the best pump on this earth. way better than the willow. it is silent, portable and not noticeable at all. without the elvie I would not be able to breastfeeding while working full time Mar 26, 2021

  • I love, love, love the convenience of this pump. I actually don't dread pumping anymore. The only thing I have to complain about is I wish it didn't leak when I bent over to pick something up. Mar 23, 2021

  • Works great. The app has a very handy feature that tells you how much milk is in the container that is very convenient. Mar 17, 2021

  • Amazing! Bought during my 3rd pregnancy and wish I had it after my first baby. So liberating to not be tied down with cords and tubes in order to pump. I’ve been using for 6 mo now. Highly recommend! Mar 03, 2021

  • So happy I have this! Super convenient, quiet, great suction, but is a little learning curve compared to traditional pump. Just used their tips and it will work great. Also excellent customer service. Feb 27, 2021

  • I just bought this pump and I love it already! It’s super quiet and turns off automatically when full! Feb 10, 2021

  • Being able to hold LO while pumping has been a game changer. The pumps do have their kinks so patience is definitely required. Customer service is great - replaced a hub when it stopped working. Feb 08, 2021

    Love this pump when I need to run errands or pump the other breast without worrying about my son knocking something off me. Also love the reusable containers. Feb 04, 2021

  • It does take a little getting used to. I will say that I was able to pump very discreetly during videoconference meetings and during family events while wearing a scarf or nursing cover. So quiet! Feb 02, 2021

  • I absolutely love this pump. This is the third pump I have tried and by far my favorite. It is so easy and convenient to use. I love that I can easily pump in my car if needed with these. Jan 17, 2021

  • Hands-down best breast pump! I used this 100x more than my spectra pump. It is so nice to be cord & hands free. I just wore under my sports bra. Made pumping a much more happy experience. Jan 11, 2021

  • Convenience - 100% in love. But I’m an oversupplied. So capacity and use time for charge, not great for me personally. But I loved having it when my son was in the NICU as it was discreet. Jan 02, 2021

    Suction does not work well. Moisture gets trapped easily and causes the pump to not work. Output is a fraction of that from a traditional pump. Also too many small parts to wash, which is a hassle. Dec 31, 2020

  • Spent a lot of time researching hands free pumps for a work trip. I had high hopes but it I never got as much milk from Elvie versus my more traditional Medela. Not to mention my boobs looked huge. Dec 25, 2020

  • Once I got the knack of the Elvie, it saved me at a time when I was going insane tied to a pump all day. Definitely a learning curve and might not get as much as a wired pump, but worth it to move. Dec 22, 2020

  • There is no way I would have continued breastfeeding as long as I did without the Elvie. It was a game changer. I could play with my son and not be hooked to the wall all day. Lots of parts to clean. Dec 10, 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.
