    Good for on the go when plug not readily available - but suction on my wall pump (medela pump in style advance is much better) Mar 20, 2024

  • Love this pump! It was able to help me effectively pull milk and as an exclusive pumper, I needed something that was somewhat portable and this pump could easily be put in your pocket. Mar 09, 2024

  • I've used this pump for both my pregnancies and I gotta say I love it. It's very comfortable to wear, easy to use, and strong enough suction to help me empty. Feb 10, 2024

  • Pumps well, however manually holding the pump means it’s easy to spill. Jan 22, 2024

    This pump is not strong! Can hinder milk production, harmony is way better Jan 03, 2024

  • I have this one and also bought the hands free collectors to use with the actual pump for on the go! I use this the must while I’m away from home! Highly recommend! Nov 16, 2023

  • This was my favourite pump. Got it with my second baby, wish I would have had it the first time around. Oct 24, 2023

  • (what's this?)

    This is an AMAZING pump! It’s so convenient for on the go, I love that I don’t have to have a specific pumping bra and that the milk simply collects right in the pump. So so good Oct 24, 2023

  • I got my original Flex in 2020 and it survived a 14 month exclusive pumping journey and was still going strong when I started using it again in 2022 for baby 6. Oct 07, 2023

  • This worked great for me being home along with baby. It fits in my pocket or I can hang it on my arm. It's quiet enough not to wake hubby or baby and the flow is great as well. Oct 04, 2023

    My sister gave me hers when she was done breastfeeding and of all of the pumps I’ve tried, I always come back to this one. It’s my favorite and it works the best out of every pump I own! Aug 25, 2023

  • I liked this pump. It was quiet, easy to clean, and easy to use. The motor broke on two different occasions, but customer service was helpful in sending a replacement pump both times. Aug 04, 2023

    My newest pump! Compact and portable design allows for convenient pumping anytime, anywhere. Love the efficiency and comfort it provides Jun 28, 2023

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE! the best pump i ever used! not only was it strong enough but i could move around and not be hooked to a wall!!!!!!! i recommend this pump to everyone & plan on using with next baby Jun 12, 2023

  • I'm an exclusive pumper and this is my main pump. It has good suction and is quiet. More flange sizes needed.Unfortunately it stopped working after three months but Medela sent me a new pump quickly. Jun 02, 2023

  • (what's this?)

    I cannot say enough about this pump. I have had 3 different pumps and this by far trumps them all. The charge holds well and it is so portable. I wish I would have had this two kids ago! May 23, 2023

  • This worked great for car rides or outings where my regular pump was far too bulky to bring. May 02, 2023

  • Love this little pump, after being stuck to a wall with my first this was a game changer! Still has the great suction and power as my wall unit used to. My go to daily pump! Apr 17, 2023

  • This is why I’m still able to pump 20 month postpartum. This saved my breastfeeding journey it makes it easier to pump on the go and at work and even at the hospital while my son was there love it Apr 03, 2023

  • I love this little pump! It works so well. The only portable that empties me like my Spectra. Apr 01, 2023

  • love this pump. it has been a life changer for getting things done in public. the pump strength is great and hold a long charge. I do wish there was a lock button for the touch screen on the pump. Mar 28, 2023

  • I love this breastpump!! It empties me every time and has great suction. Super lightweight but not as portable and discrete as in-bra pumps. Battery life is amazing (lasts a good 8-10 pumps). Mar 19, 2023

    I get great milk output with this pump. Easy to use and clean. Mar 04, 2023

    • Lily W.
    • ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Alabama

    Nice pump, powerful and reliable. Good display of info when pumping. Like the C-type charger and battery life. Wish it comes with a clip or bag to carry around while pumping. Feb 24, 2023

  • I bought this in hopes that it would give me some more freedom while pumping. I found it would lose suction on one side or the other due to the tubing and how it connects. I wanted this to work... Feb 24, 2023

    • A D.
    • Exton, Pennsylvania

    The vibration on letdown mode was really uncomfortable for me. I couldn't stand it for me than a minute or so. Feb 17, 2023

  • Loved this for traveling. Wasn’t as strong as the pump in style advanced but I only needed it for when traveling. Feb 13, 2023

    • Taryn C.
    • Port Coquitlam, Canada

    Bluetooth rarely works. After 2wks the whole pump stopped working for 2 days and then started back up. Side button wore off and is flaky after 3mo. Replacement membranes needed every 3mo are expensive Feb 12, 2023

  • It works however my first one broke within the first month. THe customer service was helpful and sent a new one. Always have a manuel w/ you in case of emergencies like that. Feb 06, 2023

  • I exclusively pumped for my first baby and being hands free and portable was exactly what I needed Jan 23, 2023

  • Love this pump! Easy pumping on the go option. Doesn't get quite as much milk as the pump I borrowed from the hospital. But it's very user friendly and works well! Jan 23, 2023

  • This pump really works great and is easy to transport Jan 08, 2023

    • Colby B.
    • United States of America

    The perfect travel pump. Wearable pumps like the willow just don't move milk effectively (imo), so this is a great alternative because it's still a "traditional" pump but so small and portable! Nov 30, 2022

    • Lynne J.
    • New Orleans, Louisiana

    I have a few different pumps and this one takes the cake! Works great and LOVE that it’s portable! Definitely a modern upgrade from other popular ones. Makes life easier. Nov 18, 2022

    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.
