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.

Happy with purchase!
Purchase single pump back in 2019!
Haven’t had any issue it a pretty amazing pump love that if portable and you can take it on the go with you!
I do wish the overall machine was smaller.

It worked just fine
I bought the maxi double pump, however if I used both at the same time it dramatically made a difference if the suction ability and therefore milk production. I resorted to using just the one at a time which made for a long process, about an hour to pump both sides.

Easy to use
I bought this one when my son was born. I feel that it is very reliable machine cause it took out all of my milk. I recommend this product for someone who find that it is hard for breastfeeding.

For such a well advertised brand I am disappointed at how average this pump is. The suction isn't that powerful and it's very noisy. I'm glad I brought this second hand because id be devasted spending the money on it brand new. If I'd known earlier I was going to pump i would had have brought a Spectra pump!
Purchased at Gumtree for $75.00.
Works well but always dies
This is my second medela swing. The pump works well but the milk often travels up the plastic tubing into the unit- and you have to unplug it to clear it out. The but has died- will not punk anymore. I can’t return it as I bought it with my older child. I will not be buying another from all accounts for spectra is the one to go for.

Great portable option
This pump is wonderful when out and about! Compact to pack up and discreet to use at high tea, dinner or even at the movies... Just make sure you remember all the parts!

Nothing can’t go wrong with it
First time for me to use this breast pump. It has good quality and save a lot of time compare to the previous one i had. Price is higher than others.
Purchased in October 2018.
Gets the job done
The medela swing pump is simple, easy to use and clean. I prefer to use it plugged into the mains as the batteries start to run out fairly quickly and reduce suction.
Purchased in August 2018 at Baby Bunting.
Slow but does the job
I use this pump twice a day.
It does the job but it takes over 30 mins each side.
I have been using for 8 months and the motor seems to be wearing out. Its getting slower and louder.
Easy to use and clean.

Good Machine. Easy to use.
I’ve had my medela swing single pump for about 5 years with about 4 of those years in storage. I started using it again recently with our second child and it’s in as good condition as when I first purchased the item.
I find the medela really good, although a little hard on my nipples when compared to my recent purchase of the pumpables genie, however I have found that the medela extracts a little more milk. It’s really easy to opearate and the buttons are very self explanatory. The pump comes with 1 size of breast shield so if you’re luck...y, you don’t have to buy any other sizes. The membrane is easy to attach and the suction levels accommodate a wide range of requirements. The power cord is a really good length, and the portability of being able to use batteries is great. The collection bottles are an ok size but the ones that came with the pump were only 150ml bottles so you need to have a few on the go once you baby is drinking more than 150 in a sitting. The bottles can be a bit of a pain those go as they don’t have a proper seal and leak in less you have the teat attached. I can’t really fault this machine and only purchased a new double because I wanted a double pump to help increase my milk supply whilst also significantly reducing the amount of time I sat on the pump in each session.
Not bad for a small pump, easy to transport and use with batteries
This breast pump served me well - it was a good pump and did help with expressing breast pump at home. It was fairly comfortable but did make a lot of noise in my opinion. I ended up hiring a hospital grade pump for the first month or so then used this one. I really liked. Ring able to use it with the cord and just batteries. It was really good when we went away for trips, the pump was small and light enough to take. Parts were easy to clean. I was quite satisfied with the amount of milk I got expressing but did find it a little loud to use.
Was very comfortable, easy to use and portable!
I used this pump anywhere from 5-10 times a day and I found it really great at keeping my supply up.
I used this pump and a pump from the hospital and found it just as effective.
The only downside is having to pump one side at a time
Good pump to start with
This was the first time i used some electric breast pump, and settled on medela swing. What i really like about the pump is its suction and let down function. You can adjust the speed and suction of the pump as per the requirement. Definitely helps to express more milk. The packaging itself was quite impressive as it provided with all the essentials. May be i found it bit noisy at the time other than that highly recommend this products.
Great and compact breast pump
My friend gifted me this pump.
It is Easy to use and small which is good for travelling with. Can also use with 4xAA batteries.
The only annoying thing is that Occasionally the pump doesn't pump. It is weak pumping and not sufficient to do the job. I sterilise the part that attaches to the pump and this works and this is what I assume is the problem.
The only other issue is that I use the bottle
For breast milk and formula. I can't mix formula in the bottle because it is not rubber sealed and leaks everywhere when I shake the bottle.
Another minor issue is that when sterilising the bottle as recommended, the medela branding on the bottle has progressively faded.
Other than that great electric pump.
Questions & Answers
Hi Medela team,
I have a swing flex single breast pump from 8 years ago when I got it for my first child. I am just wondering if the new edition accessories such as tubing and connector will fit my old motor? Plus do I need a valve and membranes as the replacement for it? Thanks!!

Hi Team, unknowingly I’ve bought swing flex when there’s a maxi flex , now it’s time consuming because I couldn’t use both breasts at a single time. Is there a way that I can replace a motor with an add on cost? As I’ve spent already 200$ do I need to spend another 270$ to get maxi flex?

I have medela swing flex single pump. Buy now i need to use it with double tube i.e. to start pumping from both at one time. Can u suggest if u can buy accessories for it? All parts i saw says compatible with only maxi flex? Can u suggest what shud i buy to get extra tube and extractor?
Hi Neha, thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately our Swing Single breast pump is not able to be used as a double breast pump because the motor is not strong enough to express both breasts at the same time. It is designed as a single pump only. If you would like to double pump, you would need to purchase the Swing Maxi Flex or Freestyle Flex.
Thanks Natasha... that helps
No worries Neha. If you need further assistance, please contact our customer service team by calling 1800 787 345 or emailing email@example.com and they would be happy to help you.
