Pretty good most of the time

published

I found it quite comfortable to use the freestyle. The double pumping ability saves so much time! The reason we chose this pump over the swing was the ability to recharge the battery and the memory function. I typically use the prodigy for about 15 minutes at a time and can use it for at least 10 sessions before I need to recharge.

Priceless investment!

published

Medela has been such a great helper during the first years of motherhood. We initially bought the Swing and upgraded to Freestyle due to the convenience of having 2 pumps at the same time. Totally a lifesaver! I was able to leave my 40 days old son for a 5 days trip overseas and he was able to be fed exclusively breastmilk! We got them when it was on sale at Baby Bunting so it is even better. The only downside is the sound that is a bit loud, especially when pumping at night (my son is a light sleeper!). We are keeping this precious pump for our next newborn!

its quiet and portable

published

It is comfortable to use, especially when at work. Suction is good but it does not give a proper sucking to empty out the breasts. Charging is good and the battery lasts a good 10 hours.
it is a relatively convenient machine for portability. However still needs another wall connected milking machine to properly empty the breasts

Simple to use breast pump

published

Medela was the brand used by the hospital my wife gave birth in, however when purchasing we were told the off the shelve pumps would not be as powerful. My wife can't fault it so far, it's very easy to use, clean and put back together. There is enough suction for two bottles at once, however you have the option to use one at a time if required. There is no noticeable difference using 240v or the battery which allows roughly 8-10 uses of 30 minutes. We have Avent bottles and steriliser kit which the Medela equipment fits in. The only hassle is we mostly use Avent bottles, the Medela kit does not come with teats but can be purchased separately.

Price is too high for usage life very sad customer

published

Was comfortable and easy to use. Given the cost was disappointed after only using for 6 weeks post baby one and the 2 weeks for baby number two. The pump died. I trouble shooters with lend of friend batteries and power cords which appear not the be the problem will not charge and will not turn in. For the price I would expect to get more use. Don’t bother ringing the customer support. I would have to send it back at own cost and repairs at own cost. By the time I pay for all this I would be up for a new pump. Disappointing Medela on a brand I have always supported and boasted about has failed me

Good one

published

Got this pump 4 months ago on sale.
Really simple to use.easy to clean.
After delivery, used hospital grade medala pump.
I didnt find much difference between that one and freestyle pump.
Yes it's a bit pricey but it is worth the money.
There are other accessories in the kit which I didn't find very useful.

Great breast pump

published

A wonderful breast pump with so many pump settings as well as having a timer which is quite handy. A time saver by pumping both breasts at the same time. Not as loud as some other pumps I tried and feels more comfortable to use. It is an expensive pump but worth the money. The pack also comes with a convenient cooler pack with an ice pack shaped to hold bottles upright and secure. So many attachments you can buy like a bra which will secure the pump while you can still walk around and do anything around the home that may need to be done. This is also doable because you have the option of using a battery pack - making it more portable or you still have the option of plugging it into the power socket.

Effective pump

published

The pump is easy to use and flexible. I only need it for 10 minutes on one breast to pump out 100ml. its such a life saver at 3am in the morning. The only thing I don't like about this pump is that it is a bit loud and sometimes it wakes up the baby during the night. I have to go into a different room for this business.

2 pumps at once

published

Comfortable and easy to use, use it for 29 minutes at a time. Liked that there are 2 pumps which made the process quicker however didn’t like the suction, the medela kit they had at the hospital was much better. Easy to clean was a plus in the middle of the night

Reliable, easy to use and dependable.

published

This machine is easy to use, has a great battery life and has worked perfectly for 7 months straight without a single issue. The dual express modes mimicks my babies sucking to ensure I always get a letdown and I’ve always been able to express at a minimum as much as my baby wants to drink - often I get more than I need, which I freeze.
The only downside is that the pump is quite loud, so nighttime expressing without waking baby can sometimes be difficult.
It’s a great pump, if I ever needed a new pump I’d buy this one again without hesitation.

Quality Pump

published

This pump has made my experience breastfeeding so much easier. I bought it prior to having our daughter (now 11months old) and glad I did. I had flat nipples and so I was exclusively pumping for the first week of her life. Then once I was using a nipple shield I still had to pump to ensure I was producing enough milk. This pump made it easy. It's easy to clean, fairly compact and you can walk around with it. After the first few months of needing it regularly, I didn't use it for about 6 months. Now using it again to make bottles for my girl to get her off the breast once I go back to work. And again, finding it to be super easy and effective pump.

Amazing product, couldn’t have kept breastfeeding without it

published

The medela freestyle is a comfortable double breastpump. I could pump 300mls in 10 minutes and it’s small and convienent to take and travel with the battery pack. Easy to pull apart and clean. I’ve had other brands of breastpumps and would choose his one again and again. I never experienced pain or broken nipples.

Can't live without it

published

After not being able to get my baby to latch properly, this pump has been a lifesaver for me. I love that the pump has a rechargeable battery which means I can easily pump while attending to other tasks. My only criticism is that it's a bit awkward to pick up my baby while pumping due to the design of the pump, but easy to do other tasks.

Product faulty

published

My daughter purchased this product. It did not work when using to pump on both sides. The staff at Babies R Us were helpful, sadly the same could not be said in regards to the Medela customer service staff member [Name Removed] who we spoke with...she was no help at all.

Life saver!

published

Wasn’t easy to use to begin with but once I understood the mechanics of it all it made new mum life so much easier. I really could not live without it! Cleaning was easy as all the important parts can be easily hand washed and sterilized. Very convenient and quick to use once I got the hand of it!

Excellent for all moms

published

This double breast pump is very convenient and very easy to use. You can adjust different levels and different time by yourself. You can attach either bottles or storage bags. The machine is light and portable. Most of the parts can be cleaned by the sterilizer. I will use this products again in the future.

Can this be used as one pump at a time or does both have to be used together?

Yes, I think so. Use plastic wrap between shield and breastshield connector. Then you can transfer Freestyle to a single pump

Mandy Y

Yes, it can be used either one pump or two pumps.

Medela
Medela A.Medela

Hi Chris, yes the Freestyle can easily be converted from a double to a single pump and back again simply by unplugging the tubing from one of the pump connectors and plugging it into the square shaped adaptor in the centre of the tubing. This needs to be done to regulate the vacuum otherwise it will be lost out of the side not being used. Thank you Medela Australia.
