Thread: Medela Freestyle Breastpump?

    I'm a first time mom but I have the Freestyle and love it so far. Granted I haven't pumped a ton because I am not going back to work for awhile, but I had to use it for severe engorgement and it saved my life! I love the small size. I haven't used the hands free or the programming yet, but it seems to work well in getting milk out. I got it from addalittlelove.com

    I LOVE my Freestyle pump. It's lightweight and easy to use. I find myself not using the handsfree attachments that comes with it as it is a bit time consuming to rig it up... I purchased a hands-free bustier instead and it works great! It's nice to be able to walk around. I've just been pumping at home so far (I go back to work next week) and I find myself putting the pump in my robe pocket and walking around and getting things done... like the dishes!

    Just that I still think it rocks, and 2 ladies in my IRL LLL group just got Freestyles and them, too.

    Bought a Freestyle this morning - I can't wait to try it out! 2 more weeks - I'll start pumping & intro a bottle when #2 is 4 weeks old.

    AND - got a $40 rebate for bringing in my PISA to be returned to Medela

    CAN YOU HELP ME ?

    YOU ALL SEEM TO HAVE SOME EXPERIENCE WITH THESE MEDELA PUMPS. I WAS USING THE PISA AND DECIDED TO UPGRADE TO THE FREESTYLE B/C IT WAS MORE PORTABLE.

    HOWEVER, I NEVER USE THE $350 FREESTYLE THAT I BOUGHT B/C THE SUCTION IS SO WEAK. I DONT KNOW IF ITS THE SILICONE SHIELDS OR THE SUCTION OF THE PUMP OR WHAT. I HAVE GONE THROUGH THE OWNERS MANUAL AND THE INSTRUCTION VIDEOS ONLINE AND I KNOW I HAVE THE ASSEMBLY CORRECT, ANY ADDITIONAL SUGGESTIONS?

    I FEEL LIKE I WASTED ALL THAT MONEY, I AM STILL USING MY CLUNKY PISA

    THANKS!!!
