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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

  • I love this pump! It’s so high tech and close to a hospital grade pump. The only thing I hate is all of the wires Nov 29, 2018

  • I received this free from my insurance. Amazing product. Comes with everything needed and easy to use for a first time pumper. Nov 13, 2018

  • I was super nervous about decreased supply after I returned my symphony rental but this quiet and portable pump works as well as the symphony - I actually find the pieces easier to clean, also Nov 10, 2018

  • I regret buying this pump. It was working wonder for about a month after the suction become weak sometime there was no suction at all. This machine was also very expensive. Oct 19, 2018

  • I started using a hospital grade pump and this pump was very close in strength to the hospital grade pump. I haven't used all the app features yet, but the pump was easy to learn and use. Sep 13, 2018

    I LOVE this pump. Suction is the closest to the Symphony. The bluetooth features are unneccessary. Flanges are very heavy. Wish they had a better seal - I have lost a lot of milk when it falls over. Jul 27, 2018

  • Compared to my other friends pumps, this one is super quiet and portable! The battery lasts me 4-5 pump sessions and its lightweight Jul 08, 2018

  • I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this pump! It's super quiet, like my husband had to ask me if I was using it cuz he couldn't hear it. It's got so many settings and a timer! It's AMAZING Jun 18, 2018

  • Love love love this pump!! First time mom and breastfeeding is challenging! I had OALD in the beginning and had to drain my breast constantly. The Bluetooth allows you to track how long you’ve pumped Jun 14, 2018

  • Absolutely love this pump, I can track my pumping sessions with the mymedela app, it's super quiet and super effective... I would definitely recommend the Sonata to any momma May 27, 2018

  • Love it!! I have used it 4 months and no problems. very efficient in extracting milk, portable (It has a back up battery ) and it keeps track of my pumping sessions with the mymedela app. Apr 18, 2018
