The Freemie has 2 cups you place directly on your breasts. They pump and store your milk and don't protrude from your body as far as a regular pump set-up. It is a discrete alternative to other electric pumps where you'd have to strip your shirt off and have bottles hanging from your breasts. See More
The Freemie Freedom is quieter than most electric pumps. This is especially useful when pumping outside or at work since you won't draw attention to yourself. It has changed the pumping experience of many mothers, since they feel less self-conscious when using the Freemie. See More
The Spectra S1 is more customizable than its competitors. It has separate controls for vacuum (suction strength) and cycle (suction frequency). They are easily adjustable to imitate your baby's own nursing pattern. It also remembers your settings between sessions so you won't have to toggle the controls when you start pumping. See More
Since it saves your last session's settings, it starts at the same suction level of your last pumping session. If you ended at Level 11 which is the maximum, it will start pumping at Level 11 when you next use it. That may be surprising for some moms who are expecting a soft massage mode at first. See More
The Medela manual breast pump is useful as a 'just in case' travel companion, an inexpensive alternative when there are no electrical outlets for you to plug your electric pump in. It's also efficient for short sessions because they require less setup and cleanup compared to electric pumps. See More
