  • an amazing pump that emptied me faster than most other pumps. It has a rechargeable battery so you can take on car or walk thru house. Jun 09, 2021

  • I loved this pump. I used my own tote, but it was lightweight, charged well, and did the job quickly. Jun 09, 2021

  • The worst. I bought this because I wanted a commercial grade pump for twins. I went through 4 during the first year of warranty. Suction is not great, the pump parts are SO bulky & heavy. The worst. Apr 14, 2021

  • I LOVE this pump! Being able to move around is awesome, it’s quiet, it empties me, it is gentle! I love it! Dec 19, 2020

  • I have had good output with the sonata. I love that it is portable, has a timer, and lights up so it’s easy to use at night. There are a lot of parts but I still think this is a great pump! Dec 06, 2020

  • The best of the best. Nursed two littles(1 and 2) and pumped at work. Was able to pump quickly and efficiently and maintain supply. Love this pump. Lasted 2 years. Nov 28, 2020

  • This is THE most silent breast pump I’ve ever owned. And I’ve owned a few. I get 6 ounces total every couple hours and there’s no super tiny pieces. It’s seriously awesome! I highly recommend this. Sep 05, 2020

  • Paid out of pocket (not covered by insurance) when it first came out. It allowed me to be cordless and walk around or move from room to room when pumping. Also quiet compared to the Medela PISA Aug 14, 2020

  • Love this pump! I pumped full time from birth until about 1 month because my son wasn’t latching. I dislike pumping, but this pump was easy to use and portable with its rechargeable battery. Mar 19, 2020

  • Faster speed for busy working moms. Love the packaging and the convenience. Mar 08, 2020

  • This pump was recommended by a lactation consultant. It works pretty well but after 3 months of using it, the battery got weak and a line appeared on the screen of the pump. Thank God for warranty Feb 23, 2020

  • I love this pump I just wish spare parts were found locally instead of online:( Feb 12, 2020

    This is my favorite pump. Very efficient and automated. I used at work during pumping sessions. I loved the bag it came with. Jan 14, 2020

  • Love this pump! Has a rechargeable battery so you can pump on the go without having to worry about power or car adapter. If I was behind on pumping I would pump on the drive home from work. Jan 08, 2020

    I have this one& unfortunately for me I just couldn’t produce milk. The suction was good. I loved that you can download the app& track everything. Is a little pricey. Saving it for next baby. Jan 05, 2020

    This pump is so comfortable and relatively quiet. Love the two speeds and ability to adjust the suction intensity. So easy to use and is very convenient to be able to use plugged in or on battery Jan 02, 2020

  • I have been eating a new Medel a pump as I’m expecting my third child. Dec 26, 2019

  • Great pump! The double pumping is a lifesaver & the app allows you to track output as well as many other things! Oct 12, 2019

    • SB P.

    I actually love this pump and it’s easy to bring around and I don’t have to stay in one place. I can actually move around. Oct 04, 2019

  • Battery powered and powerful. A little bulky but great at home. Sep 20, 2019

  • Worked well and was quiet what more could a working mom ask for! I used this product and then was able to give it to a friend who used it for 2 more years! Will buy again Sep 11, 2019

  • Worked at first. Gave out/lost suction after six months. Loved the app and overall design of the product. Wished it lasted longer. Probably try a different pump next time around. Very Expensive! Aug 30, 2019

  • I love using this pump! This was my first breast pump ever and have used it with 2 babies now (13 months apart), the suction has been amazing and I love that you can track everything on the app! Jul 02, 2019

    • Alena T.
    • Raleigh, North Carolina

    I upgraded from the Pump in Style Advanced and am so glad I did! I’m able to express more breast milk! It is more quiet, and it has a rechargeable battery so you don’t need an attachment. Jun 22, 2019

  • Needed a replacement within 10 days of use. Pump parts are heavy when using handsfree bra. Extremely expensive and bluetooth is finicky at best. Spend your money on another less expensive pump. May 15, 2019

    • Helen L.
    • Andover, Massachusetts

    Good solid pump. The pump has an internal battery so you don't need an outlet to pump. Not crazy about the new connectors and valves but happy to reuse Medela bottles from my PISA. Apr 30, 2019

    • Amy P.
    • Guttenberg, Iowa

    Works much better than the pump in style and is much quieter. Like the portability and ease of use. The app is nice to keep track of pumping and feedings. Apr 29, 2019

  • I really wanted to love this pump! But it’s didnt get enough out for me at all. I loved all the options though. It just wasn’t for me. Apr 07, 2019

  • I ended up exclusively pumping and am so happy I had purchased this pump. It is built to withstand heavy use and insanely quiet! Customer service is great and very quick to help. Apr 01, 2019

    • An N.

    So efficient & quiet. Better than the PISA Medela. I would say as efficient as the hospital grade Symphony. It can be plugged in or has a built in battery so I bring it around the house. Mar 12, 2019

  • So far so good. A little annoying if you only want to pump on one side; I have to hold the second tube Feb 22, 2019

  • It is the closest of the Medela pumps to hospital grade! Lasts maybe 3-4 pumps off the battery. It's nice and portable. Works great. Feb 06, 2019

    • Sana I.
    • Los Angeles, California

    It's the only pump i've used and it serves me well. It empties breasts in about 10-12 minutes, i like that it can be charged and has an app to sync pumps with via bluetooth. But lots of parts to clean Feb 01, 2019

  • So I have 3 pumps I currently use, Lansinoh double, spectra s1 and the sonata. The sonata does express more milk, but dies a lot faster than my spectra. Overall it’s a great pump. Jan 23, 2019

  • I LOVE the design of this breast pump. It was a god send when I started pumping to keep track of what times I was pumping and how many ounces while I tried to figure out how much I needed to supplemen Jan 18, 2019

  • I just got this and am in love! I have tried four different pumps and have trouble getting enough milk for baby but this pump has been successful! Less stress for every drop. Jan 02, 2019

    • Hope E.
    • Rockford , Illinois

    Such an amazing and top of the line product! I would recommend this pump to anyone - it’s very simple and easy to use. I love that it comes with the freezer and extra bottles. Dec 27, 2018

  • I wanted to love this pump but it has flaws that I can’t get past. The machine itself is great but the flange set up needs help. It splashed milk back at my breast! Dec 10, 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.
