  • This pump is awesome to use with the freemie cups. I wish there was a clip or something so you can be hands free instead of trying to fit this in a pocket. May 03, 2020

  • Portable and fits in my scrub pocket so I can pump while getting ready for work. Does about 3 pump sessions on a charge. Not as efficient as my medela PISA which I still use at work. Apr 03, 2020

  • Very light weight and portable. Great for travel or discrete pumping during outings. Mar 04, 2020

  • I got this pump through my insurance and I love its compact size and it works well! Spectra was great to work with when the first pump was defective. I had a replacement pump in less than 3 days. Feb 24, 2020

  • I have this pump. It’s grate for you on the go it last about 3 25 min sessions has really strong suction but I have to keep it on letdown longer than I do my S1 Feb 12, 2020

  • Bought but returned. Didn’t really have as strong of a suction as the Spectra 1 Feb 02, 2020

  • Compact enough to take on the go and less bulky than most pumps to take to work. Provides a lot of settings to encourage letdown as well as massage settings. Easy to clean and assemble. Jan 21, 2020

    This pump is amazing, especially for working mammas like myself! Small and convenient for the trips to and from work. Does not have to be plugged in. The suction is as good as the big pumps. Jan 03, 2020

  • Perfect for on the go or working pump sessions. Small enough to fit in most of my pants pockets to allow me to be up and doing stuff. Jan 01, 2020

    I really like the portability of this pump! If it were my only pump though I wouldn’t have been as happy with it. I like the functions on the S1 & S2 more. Great for travel though! Dec 18, 2019

  • I went back to work early and pumped twice a day until my daughter turned 1. I was able to produce up to 8 oz each session. It was so convenient and portable, it made pumping so much easier. Nov 29, 2019

  • So easy hold and pump while feeding or to walk around with. Also plenty of settings to be comfortable, has a timer, and massage setting. It's also quiet! And light. Love it Nov 09, 2019

  • Traveled for work all the time. The best portable pump of all time. I could pump in airports, car very easly. I used the freeme cups with it too. Great battery. Oct 28, 2019

  • Not as many functions as the full-size pump, but still very comfortable. A must-have for back to work! Oct 08, 2019

  • I purchased this pump when going out of town for a weekend without my son. I like the small compact size; I could fit it in my purse on-the-go. I do not like how speed and suction are not separate. Oct 01, 2019

    Great for use once and awhile, but wouldn't recommend as an everyday pump. My S2 has better suction. Sep 23, 2019

  • We travel to see family a lot so this is so helpful in those first few weeks and I don’t pump much so it’s nice to have one that doesn’t take up much space and is portable! Sep 19, 2019

  • Small but strong! Love this pump for all travel needs and those on-the-go moments especially with a newborn. Aug 22, 2019

  • This pump was an amazing contribution to my pumping journey. It made it easier to pack and pump on the go. The pump is a bit louder than my classic pump. but super convenient Aug 16, 2019

  • Pumping portability at its finest! This pump fits with all of the Spectra pump parts. I wouldn’t use this product as the only pump, but as a supplement to the S2 (which has no portability). Aug 02, 2019

  • Perfect for on the go!! Not quite as powerful as the full size S1/S2 but still more powerful than any other handheld portable pump I've used! Jul 31, 2019

  • Started to malfunction within 4 weeks. Would “reboot” randomly during pumping, make loud pumping noises, and finally refused to shut off. I did submit a warranty claim, and spectra sent me a new one. May 26, 2019

    • Erin D.
    • Cambridge, Massachusetts

    This was awesome for travel and taking back and forth to the office, but I ended up needing to exclusively pump and this was not ideal for such frequent use. Apr 19, 2019

  • Great for on the go! Small and portable! I would bring a purse and bring this in it! Apr 04, 2019

  • The portability is amazing but unfortunately my output with this is not as much. It is disappointing that you can only control vacuum and not cycles like on the bigger spectra. Mar 31, 2019

  • I absolutely LOVE this! The power is comparable to my regular sized pumps, and it easy to transport. It also lasts at least 5 20 minute sessions. Mar 15, 2019

    • Lena G.
    • San Diego, California

    Small and portable. Definitely not my every day pump, but great for work travel when I don't know if there will be outlets or a dedicated pumping space Feb 19, 2019

  • I won this in a giveaway. Love that its rechargeable but feel like it needs more settings options Feb 15, 2019

    • Anna D.
    • ARLINGTON, Virginia

    Super convenient, but definitely doesn't work as well as the S1. Feb 05, 2019

  • I have the regular S1 pump for my everyday pump, but this pump is so handy for the on the go. I don’t know if it would work as an everyday pump, but it’s definitely convenient when I’m out and about! Jan 03, 2019

  • I work in healthcare and needed something small and portable to fit in my white coat so that I can pump at work. I use this in combo with the Freemie cups for the perfect solution! So easy! Dec 13, 2018

  • Moms on the go NEED this pump! It's so lightweight and simple to use. Plus, it's both quiet and powerful. Best pump I have ever used! Dec 11, 2018

  • Very easy to travel with, but doesn’t have the power of the Spectra2. It works perfect for just a pump or two during the day, but really need to use my larger one when I get home to truly feel empty. Dec 02, 2018

  • Love the portability of this pump! Oct 15, 2018

  • I love how portable this is. It’s a great option to have, though I don’t have the S1 to compare. Seems like a decent amount of suction compared to my Madela pump in style. Oct 12, 2018

  • The S9 is louder than the S1 but very portable. Easy to use and adjust to meet your needs. The recharge battery lasts for a days or more of pumping. Sep 29, 2018

  • Love it pump on the go lite weight Aug 28, 2018

  • Love having this portable pump. As it can be plugged or unplugged and rechargeable. Love this pump in addition for the transition to use as single or double pump. Same gentle quiet use. Love light, Aug 09, 2018

  • I got this pump cause I thought I would need something incase I was out. However, it doesn't suction well and doesn't empty my supply either. Wish I had got a hospital grade one. Jul 14, 2018

  • Loved this pump. Very portable and easy to use. Suction was amazing Mar 20, 2018

  • The suction on this pump is not great.. the battery does not last long. I like that I can move around and pump but just wish it actually worked bettef Mar 11, 2018

  • I have this and the Medela freestyle. Neither have the power of a plugin but the Medela comes close and has a way to attach it to you so you’re truly hands free. I do not recommend. Feb 20, 2018

  • Great for on-the-go pumping or if you're an infrequent pumper. It's a great companion to my S1 but I wouldn't recommend this as an everyday pump if you pump more than twice a day. Jan 19, 2018

    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.
