Medela In Style Advanced pump review

13 June 2012 / 1 comment

When I was pregnant I knew I wanted to breastfeed, but I never gave any thought to pumping. On our daughters 2 day check up her pediatrician recommended supplementing with formula to help baby gain weight. This wasn’t something I wanted to do so right then we went out and bought a pump to increase my supply.

I had looked at the Medela pumps before and I knew they were quality products. We decided on the In Style Advanced double pump. It comes with an electrical plug as well as the option for batteries.


  • The pump itself is great. It has the capability of pumping both breasts at once, which is a huge time saver if you’re a pumping mom at work, or have other children to attend to. I will say I rarely use both at once. Looking back I could’ve done just fine with a single electric pump.

Great for on the go pumping!

  • I love how the pump comes in a convenient bag for on the go pumping. I’ve actually pumped going down the interstate while my husband drove! (they make vehicle adapters as well!) You can also store your bottles, milk bags, pumping accessories in the bag!
  • In the first few crucial weeks of Breastfeeding I was able to use my pump to relieve engorgement. I also would pump during the day and my husband was able to take over a feeding at night so I could get some more sleep.

I’ve never had any problems with my pump. I am currently Breastfeeding my 2nd child and I use the pump as well. So two years & it’s still going strong! I would definitely recommend this pump to other mothers. You won’t be disappointed!
