  1. Mrs Ahmed

    Aged 23, I was the first one in over a decade to give birth in my family. Out of all my siblings, I was the first one to have a baby which meant I had zero experience and no help from anyone experienced. I tried to do as much research as I could before my son was born, however you can never be fully prepared. My family is from an ethnic background, so their experiences of childbirth and nursing were very different.

    When my son was born, he had a poor latch and I had no clue about breastfeeding. I tried to do my best, but a combination of a poor latch, cluster feeding and baby blues left me in tears for days. I was still determined to pull through, however I was under immense pressure from family to “give him proper milk” because he is not getting full up. I was already going through a tough time with anxiety and postnatal depression, and the last thing I needed was constant reminding of how incapable I was to fill my baby’s stomach. I would be nursing him for an hour, and he would be hungry again 10 minutes later. I was even told by a family member that my “boobs were too small” which means I didn’t have enough milk (which is actually a myth). I now know that feeding constantly is normal, especially in the first few days when the milk has not fully come in so I can pass that knowledge on and save a new mother’s sanity. However, i felt like i was fighting a battle trying to breastfeed my son.

    I gave in to the pressure and introduced formula when my baby was 3 days old, which was the biggest mistake of my life, as it had a huge negative impact and resulted in an extremely low milk supply. I still did not want to give up breastfeeding. there is nothing wrong with formula, but it wasn’t my choice. I remember sitting for an hour nursing, and then giving him a full bottle straight after because of my low milk supply. i tried to nurse all day long. I was trying to give my baby the best whilst fighting off the depression. I was even told “maybe he doesn’t like your milk” or “i bet nothing comes out.” These are just some of the harsh comments I had to hear just after giving birth.

    I did not have enough knowledge or access to a good breast pump. i had bought a manual pump from a different brand, however that made no difference as it was extremely hard to get the milk out. Lockdown had started which had made things 100 times harder, as i was now alone with a newborn baby without any family or friends.

    I just WISH i had known and bought an electric breast pump in the early days. I remember being told “why would you waste money on a pump you dont have milk like a cow.”Despite all this, I managed to save up and buy a medela electric pump (single). Adam was around 4 months old then, and my life changed so much it was unreal. I started pumping a few times a day, and it made the biggest difference. I remember the first time I was able to “exclusively” breastfeed for ONE of the night feeds (previously I had to bottle feed in the night or a mixture of both). It was the happiest moment of my breastfeeding journey. I remember telling my husband “he had breastmilk only.” this was just one feed, but the start of something big. due to pumping my milk supply increased and i was now exclusively nursing him for all of his night feeds, I went from giving Adam around 8 bottles a day, to just 1 or 2. With the medela, I was also able to prove those wrong who had said I had no milk!

    I had a little problem with the pump, but medela team was amazingly helpful in providing help!

    Medela, THANK YOU.

    Changed my life. I had a very low milk supply as I had introduced formula (combination feeding) when my son was 3 days old because of his poor latch and baby blues – however i never gave up on breastfeeding completely and the medela pump increased my supply massively even after 4 months of barely nursing. I had lost hope, until i began to use this pump. After using the pump a few times, I went from giving formula 8 times a day to just ONCE as i was nursing most feeds!!

    I love this pump! I originally had the Medela Harmony hand pump but was looking for a bit more freedom, so got this two weeks after my little one was born. The breast shields are comfy as they’re circled with silicone, which is nice when your girls are engorged and sore! The unit itself has many different speeds that you build up to suit you. It’s also super quiet and I was able to pump while my baby was sleeping on me during the night. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a simple and versatile pump!

    I bought the Medela swing pump after reading hundreds of reviews of different products. It has not disappointed. Five days after my child was born I was discharged from hospital but my child remained in a NICU ward. The pump imitates the way a child encourages the let down of milk and meant I was able to pump during the night to ensure the nursing staff had enough expressed milk to feed my baby during the following night. It has been used daily for the last 7month and it’s been so reliable. Perfect addition and I would definitely recommend. However if you are planning on doing a lot of expressing get the double pump.

    Thanks Medela

    I can say that the breast pump I bought from you was a life saviour. It is so easy to use and looks the same after sterilizing it a million times.

  6. Chika Igwe

    It’s an amazing product. Medela literally changed my breastfeeding journey. I got it after my 1st, used it for the 2nd as well. I will definitely be cleaning it for this next pregnancy.

    I was really excited to try Medela after reading so many good reviews. My daughter is 5 months old and I have been expressing milk with a different brand electric pump for 3 months. I wanted to change to Medela as this pump was so easy to clean and quick to assemble, but unfortunately it does not work for me. I’ve been following all the included instructions, but I can’t seem to express as much milk as with my previous pump. It’s really a shame as I do love every other aspect of it

    I wouldn’t be without this pump! It was invaluable when I needed to pump to give my little one top-ups due to him being very jaundiced not long after birth, and now allows me to get a stock of milk built up for when I need a little break! It’s easy to use and very comfortable. I usually pump on one side whilst baby feeds from the other so I love that it’s small and portable, especially as baby is very wriggly now!

  9. Tracy Murphy

    I purchased the Swing Flex on the recommendation from a friend who had used a Medela breastpump when breastfeeding both of her children. I have to say this pump is one of the best items we bought for our new baby. I have used this pump regularly, twice, sometimes three times daily, for the last three months to build up a supply of frozen milk, for my return to work. It has also enabled me to leave my baby for two days with my parents for a friends wedding without any concerns about his feeds. I found the pump easy to assemble, clean and use, from day one. I use the larger shield supplied after advice from Medela customer service – and also found by turning it slightly on an angle, is most comfortable and effective for me. I would recommend this pump to all new mums and would just like to say, on behalf of my baby and I, a big Thankyou Medela, you’re doing a great job!

    Was a great help to my wife when she had to express milk for our newborn

  11. Hannah Hurst

    This breast pump was easy to assemble and pretty easy to sterilise after use.

    I found that it took some time for it to stimulate my let down but once I got the hang of it and knew it would take a put longer than a manual pump it was easy to use!

  12. Esme Wesmoreland

    Bought this product for ease of use/portable but had used the big medela pumping machines in hospital.

    My baby wasn’t breastfeeding but only taking a bottle yet I was determined she was going to have my breast milk so I needed a pump for leaving hospital.

    The team were fab and my Swing pump arrived the next day. What fantastic customer service! She did eventually latch but my trusty Swing was used pretty much daily (and often more) for 6 months – now in the box just in case it’s needed in future!

  13. Dubravka Vukadin

    Great pump, so easy to use and clean. Love it.

  14. Tiffany Dale

    This pumps very well and is nice and small.

    The only two small complaints I have is that (i) if the bottle falls over with the funnel attached, the milk does leak where the funnel attaches to the bottle. So just remember to screw the lid on the bottle when you’re done! and (ii) the bottles that came with my set only fit the calma teats – I really wanted to try a regular teat but would have needed to buy more bottles.

  15. Jade Kilkenny

    Good little pump. I like the battery and mains choice. Battery life is very good.

    It’s quite small and not too noisy, although you can hear it so I wouldn’t use it in public. It could do with a better ‘clip’ to attach to trousers for when using and wanting to move.

    The power button can also be a little temperamental and sometimes takes a few times to actually come on. I like the variety of pumping levels and have good volumes of milk expressed in a fast time (80ml in 5/10min on one side), which is the whole point! Not too bad to dissemble and clean. I would recommend.
