The S2 boasts so many great features and is designed to truly meet the needs of moms wanting to feel confident that they have an effective, powerful breast pump to support supply while also incorporating features to make life a little easier. Like all Spectra pumps, the S2 is a closed system - a physical barrier between the milk and the pump ensures hygiene and motor performance.
The S2 is intended to rival the Medela Symphony, and even surpass it with some of its innovative features designed to make life easier for moms.
The S2 is hospital grade - strong and efficient enough to support milk supply. In Korea, where the S2 was first released, each baby clinic now boasts its own S2, to help new moms in need of a great pump to assist with establishing breastfeeding.
With a maximum suction strength of 300mmHg and the ability to be used as a single or double pump, plus a host of additional features, the S2 is set to become the ultimate breast pump to support U.S. moms.
Completely flexible, touch button with the S2 pump's digital controls. These allow you to set the pumping program to the speed and rhythm most effective for your body. The pump will start in 'massage mode', a short, shallow mode designed to stimulate your body's letdown reflex (start the milk flowing) just like how your baby tells your body to start milkflow. The pump will then switch to expression mode, a deeper, slower pattern of suction which mimics how your baby nurses when the milk is flowing. For women who find it hard to get a letdown when pumping, this feature really helps - switch back and forth as needed. The suction is also adjustable whether in let-down or expression mode!
Includes a timer and nightlight. This pump is also NEARLY silent!!!
You can see on the picture that you can adjust both cycle (how often the pump 'sucks') and vacuum (the strength of the suction) easily, and the digital display allows you to see your program at a glance.
what parents are saying
I have it to use for baby #2 due in a few weeks. Not sure on performance yet, but it is very large! I can't imagine it fitting nicely in a bag. Will update once I actually use it for pumping. (Apr 13, 2018)
I bought this after my insurance supplied medela did not work well for me. The spectra has been fantastic. The settings have been very customizable, and it has been comfortable and easy to use.

I had originally gotten a Medela punk though my insurance, but after more research I decided to purchase this pump and I’m so glad I did! It’s quiter, more comfortable and I get about 1-2 oz more!

Fantastic closed-system pump. The timer and light are helpful features. The bottles are wide-mouth which can cause compatibility issues, so be advised. Out of multiple pumps, this is my preferred one.

I spent the first 3 months of both of my sons’ lives hooked up to one of these and as breast pumps go, the Spectra S2 is simple, powerful, and easy to use. Find the Spectra Facebook page for tips!

Replaced my old Medela freestyle with this and I am so glad. I can pump and be on the phone! Accessories are more expensive but the convenience of being able to while pumping makes up for that.

This pump kicked my previous pumps butt! By far better in every aspect. I produced 8oz. + while my other pump only produced 4oz.& I never felt relief like I did with this one. Also, much quieter.

This pump is amazing! I got it when my Medela PIS died and have not looked back. Love that you can adjust speed and strength separately. bummed it doesn't have a battery option though (the s1 does).

I absolutely love this breast pump. I had a different brand with my first, and this has helped me bank so much milk for my infant. It’s quiet and perfect, definitely recommend this pump for everyone!

I am a exclusive pumping Momma and this pump has changed my life! It is so gentle compared to the other pumps I have used. Not to mention the closed system! The light is an added bonus as well!

This is the best pump ever. I really liked that it has multiple settings so you can customize how ever you want. This pump is really worth all the hype, it’s gets so much more milk out than a medela.

Best breast pump i have owned. Double pump with enough suction to maintain healthy supply. Easy to clean parts. Closed pumping system to keep fluid out of pump. Cost friendly. No extra parts needed.

This was highly rated and talked about, and I found it to be a disappointment. I liked my Medela better. I did like the timer and light feature. I had to send my first one back because it came broken.
