So far so good
I purchased these to help bring my supply back up. I pump every 3 hours at work but when I get home I am not latching enough or pumping. So naturally my supply dipped. I figured with these I can still do busy mom stuff and pump. I've had these about 2 weeks and here are my findings:
Pros: pretty quiet. I dont feel like the sound is ridiculously loud. But they are not soundless.
Easy to clean. Lots of parts but all easy to clean and air dry.
Battery life. I can get a few days worth of pump when I'm pumping twice in the evening.
Comfortable. Silicon is soft and the cups aren't too tight.
Suction. I think its great. I use level 3 and feel like it's actually a little better than my main Medela pump.
Cons: Spills. I used this while washing dishes, folding clothes and eating a meal. And no point did they leak! Felt great to have some freedom and know I'm making a bottle! BUT I got brave and tried to wear them while getting ready for the day. They WILL LEAK when you move your arms or chest too much. Part of the suction is how tight your bra is. I tried to change my shirt and do my hair. Both times I leaked. Also learned that if you leak you must take the cup off and clean the seal or you will continue to have a leak. As long as you aren't moving your body too much you should be fine. With that being said I havent tried carrying my baby with them on.
Pieces. I'm not used to so many pieces. It wasn't hard to put together but my medela has less parts to clean. I stuck with Medela…
