Piece of rubbish

This pump is a piece of garbage. Doesn’t work for long and goes flat quickly after 10 mins. Takes ages to charge. Took back to baby bunting and contacted Madela and both were useless and refused to help. Ended up throwing it out and buying another brand Show details

Worst product and customer service

I used medela pump and my supply decreased just because pump worked few months only . It’s not worth to spend $$$ and use for 1-2 months . I contacted babybunting and medela customer service both but no one helped and just advised to flush out which I did several times but suction didn’t improved at all. Show details

Nightmare, turn dream pump

Started off terrible but soon realised it was user error not device error haha... loved it in the end. I personally used it as a single pump majority of the time with a hakaa on my other breast. That way I had a hand free for other things eg: massaging pump breast, eating, drinking. That's what worked best for me so probably could have just purchased the single pump and saved a few $$. Show details ·  3

Can't make sense of the raving reviews

I ordered this pump considering all the positive reviews and the reputation of the brand Medela itself. What a disappointment it has been! First, it is super loud and almost impossible to use when the baby is sleeping. Second, the suction is a joke - it takes me about 40 minutes to get a barely decent amount of milk, whereas with the other pump I have been using I manage to express double the amount in half the time. It is quite uncomofrtable on the breast too. Last but not least, it looks and feels very cheap, very basic. And let's not forget the ridiculous price - it is one of the most expensive electric breast pumps on the market and so not worth the money! Definitely wouldn't recommend. Show details

Stopped working within 2 weeks

First pump stopped working within 2 weeks, was replaced without to much trouble as they said this is quite common, second pump stopped working within a week, they replaced it again, third pump stopped working within a week, they refuse to refund or replace as they say it works in their lab, stay away from this brand!! Show details

Ok for an occasional pumper only

Good size pump, easily attaches to waistband and batteries allow for extra pumping convenience.

I bought this pump due to brand reputation and wanting a powerless pump option.

I ended up having to pump a lot more than I'd hope as my daughter has issues breastfeeding. I ended up buying a spectra and I was able to pump three times as much volume of milk in a third of the time. Cannot recommend the spectra enough.  Show details

Great

Very good pump. I’ve used it with both my children. Currently using for my second but trying to decrease use and let nature do its course with supplies. Love it! Very satisfied.
Thanks for the assistance of the Medela team: you were amazing: efficient, quick, professional and kind  Show reply

Going 10 months strong with this great pump

10months pumping ranging from 4-2 times daily from day one - taking from 30-15 mins each side. Travels well to work with me, I haven’t tried it with battery’s only. Easy cleaning. Recommend having spare membrane. Easy use and good suction. Show details

Amazing! So helpful for bringing and maintaining my milk supply. I don’t know what I would have done without it!

Hi I have the medela swing and it just randomly stopped working, it’s making the noises as if it’s sucking but the suction actually doesn’t work. I’ve replaced the batteries and have tried plugging it in to the wall.

This is very common problem for medela . If this is still in warranty contact medela . They are not helpful but still try your luck .

Hi there! I noticed my single Swing does not work without batteries even when plugged in. I take this is because the batteries complete the electrical circuit? Could using non-rechargable batteries to complete the circuit damage the unit?

Hi Hansen, thank you for stepping in. Yes, you are correct. You can certainly use the Swing when it is plugged in without batteries. It's a handy feature indeed!

Why won’t mine charge?

Maybe you need to insert batteries. Mine does not charge as it is battery operated or power cord operated. Hope this helps :)
