    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

    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

    Love this pump it’s so compact and does a great job. It’s super easy to use while doing things around the home and easy to take anywhere. Oct 13, 2022

  • So light! when wearing a pump bra, I can walk around and multi task. So fast and easy to clean. Sep 09, 2022

  • I love that I’m not stuck to the wall and I can change baby if need be but it vibrates loud so I can’t have it on the sofa while baby is sleep because it wakes him up Aug 28, 2022

  • I have used this pump several times and so disappointed. I didn't even cover the bottom of the bottle. With my spectra I get 3-4oz each side every session. So bummed, wanted this to work for me. Jul 11, 2022

  • This pump is great in that it offers some flexibility, you can get up and walk around. If you have another child to chase you still have to be careful bending or bouncing around too much. Jun 30, 2022

  • It’s very portable. Power pumping uses a lot of the battery. Medela’s customer service said never leave it on the charger >2hrs. and it should be charged when it’s on 1 bar, Which is inconvenient. Jun 22, 2022

    • Emmie P.

    I thought it would be great because of its compact size, it can be attached to wrist with strap. The screen is so sensitive, when I hang it on my wrist, if I just graze the screen, it’ll pause Jun 07, 2022

  • Absolutely hated this pump. The flanges are too short, so my nipples would hit the back. Was not effective, and I got 1/2 the milk that I would with my other pump. Battery life was not great. May 10, 2022

  • This saved pumping for me - just being able to move around the house or even the couch freely and not being plugged into the wall. Makes pump in style feel like blunt instrument, did not expect this May 05, 2022

  • Loved this pump. You are able to move around and its not bulky and big. It wasnt too loud either. Apr 30, 2022

  • I lover how potable this pump is - it helps me multitask while pumping, dishes, laundry, etc. Very lightweight and the battery last for 2 hours. Mar 17, 2022

  • I bought a willow but use this more! It’s light weight and it has a rechargeable battery so it can go with me everywhere. Definitely worth the extra investment! Mar 08, 2022

    This product is compact and lightweight, extremely portable and easy to carry around while on the go, has great suction, several modes, and keeps track of pumping times. Dec 21, 2021

  • This is my number one recommendation for an excellent and efficient rechargeable pump. It is relatively quiet and very user friendly. It is just as effective as the Medela Pump In Style. Dec 10, 2021

    • Priya R.
    • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    Very convenient and super portable. I get a good session out of this. Nov 11, 2021

  • Not as portable/hands free. I felt I’d be better off with an Elvie or something similar since this has no clip, the screen is sensitive and you still have to worry about the extra parts. Hated it Nov 07, 2021

  • I used this in my exclusive pumping days and loved how convenient this was. I could throw it in my pocket and pump while doing chores. The small size does not compromise on the functionality at all. Nov 05, 2021

  • I love the ability to be disconnected from the wall and move around with this pump! Aug 18, 2021

  • I love the portability of this pump. With twins being hands free is important. However, I do find it's not as powerful as other pumps. It's great as a second, more portable pump if you can afford it. Aug 16, 2021

  • (what's this?)

    This is the hands-down best travel pump out there. Small enough to throw in your work bag, long-lasting battery, charge via USB (so you can use your computer cables). What's not to love? Aug 03, 2021

  • A great double pump. Very light weight and can be put in your pocket and used hands free with a pumping bra. Battery is good last about 3-4 pumping sessions of 30 min. It’s fairly quiet. Jul 01, 2021

  • I absolutely LOVE this pump! I was using another rechargeable pump that was much bulkier and I hated it. This is so easy to use and clean! I also love the app, it makes tracking everything so easy. Apr 08, 2021

    • Se Mi L.
    • Porter Ranch, California

    Pumped exclusively with my first for over a year, I’m a pro. Wish I had this back then, it’s awesome! Super Portable and no more duckbill valves to clean and replace. Mar 18, 2021

  • Its light weight, battery will last 4-5 pump sessions. It has bluetooth so you can track your sessions with Medelas app! Flanges are so soft and the bag it comes with has a pocket for everything! Feb 13, 2021

  • Works wonderfully and very user friendly. Jan 25, 2021

    • Sonia N.

    I probably wouldn’t buy this again. It’s a lot more expensive than some of the other pumps and it’s not that much better. Dec 22, 2020

  • I love this pump. It helped me build my milk supply when nursing wasn’t an option. I went from making 13oz per day to over 35oz! It’s also portable but I do wish you could wrap it around your neck. Oct 03, 2020

  • Convenient anywhere pumping but causes tenderness Oct 03, 2020

  • I love this pump. Love that I can walk around and pump. I had other pumps but this one is by far my favorite. The pieces are easy to assemble and clean compared to prior Medela pumps. Sep 09, 2020

  • Quite, compact and comfortable with the new silicone edged flanges. Has a long battery life up to four pumps on one charge. Sep 02, 2020

  • First time mom. This pump was awesome. The wireless pump made it easy for me to walk around while pumping. Totally would recommend. And it was quiet and holds charge for multiple sessions Sep 01, 2020

  • This is my favorite pump. I have used the Medela Symphony, Sprectra S2 and Elvie. I find this one to be the most convenient while extracting the most milk. Jun 23, 2020

  • I’ve been using this pump for about a month and it has become my go-to pump. I have the Spectra (pink), Sonata, and Lansinoh. The size and portability is what won me over. Apr 30, 2020

  • (what's this?)

    This pump is small, quiet, powerful and so easy to use! Minimal number of parts, easy to assemble, and does a great job. As others have mentioned not hands free, but a great pump overall. Apr 05, 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.
