Cordless pump

published

For someone like me who is a first time mum, this product is very easy to use and clean. It's cordless and touch screen therefore i'm able to multitask at the same time when i have my medela bra making it hands-free. I produce a fair amount while expressing something like 350ml in 10minutes and that's at a suction strength L4. If you want a stronger suction then you can just up the strength easily on the product. There's also a timer on this product for convenience. This pump is really compact and I'm able to bring it with me anywhere or wherever i need to. I honestly really love this pump and would recommend it to any new mothers.

Purchased in February 2020 at Baby Bunting for $499.00.

The Freestyle Flex has been a god send!

published

I absolutely love my Freestyle Flex breast pump. It’s so compact and convenient to take anywhere & I love that the double breast pump gets more milk in a shorter amount of time! Highly recommend, it’s simply the best breast pump!

Purchased in November 2020 for $549.00.

Great pump - terrible accessories

published

I want to start by saying I love this pump - but after using the symphony and attachments I have a massive issue with the freestyle flex attachments. You can not see when milk has stopped due to the enclosed head so you are purely reliant on time and hoping you are drained. The head also covers so much of the bottle that you cannot tell if the bottle is full. I have actually purchased the symphony attachments and use on it so I can actually see what is going on.
The pump itself is nice and gentle but absolutely zero love for the attachments

I am so in love with my freestyle flex. It is so comfortable with the new shields, so easy and compact to use and I love that it has the USB plug to use anywhere, I get more milk out when using it. The best pump I have ever used

This is hands down the best pump!

The freestyle flex has given the the ability to pump quickly and effectively. The pump is very comfortable to use. It has a sleek design which is just gorgeous! I can pump enough for my baby in a low amount of time. Loving the medela freestyle flex!

Questions & Answers

5calbabies

5calbabiesasked

How comparable is the suction power of the freestyle flex versus the sonata? I have used the sonata on my last baby and I loved the suction power as it was literally like a hospital grade pump. However the sonata is bulky so I just purchased the freestyle flex however I’m concerned the suction will not be as good as the Sonata. Is the freestyle flex as powerful and comparable to hospital grade pump like Sonata?

Hi 5calbabies,
Thank you for your question. I am assuming you are in a country other than Australia as you have used the Sonata previously. Medela Australia does not currently sell the sonata so unfortunately, I cannot give you all the details you need. Please contact your local Medela subsidiary. If you click on the link below and click on the globe icon (to the right of the page) it will show you a list of countries to choose from.

Warmest wishes

May I please know what breast pump - Medela Sonata Flex or Medela Freestyle Flex gets more milk in less time? Thanks

Medela A.Medela

Hi Trang,
Thank you for your email. Medela Australia does not actually stock the Sonata but we do have the new Freestyle Flex. The Freestyle Flex and the Sonata both use the same 2 Phase technology (Stimulation & Expression), they also have the newly designed breast shields which have the added benefit of improved comfort and also increases the volume of milk when double pumping by up to 11%.
The Sonata does have an extra pumping pattern as it was inspired by the Symphony professional-grade breast pump which you may have seen in many hospitals. This may impact output depending on the pattern used.
The vacuum levels are approximately the same (the difference is negligible). The Freestyle Flex is much more portable and is one of the lightest and quietest pumps on the market.
Please remember if you purchase your Sonata from outside of Australia your warranty is with the country of purchase.
I hope this has answered your question.
Kind regards
Pauline

Samantha L.asked

Hi what is the difference between the freestyle and freestyle flex other than the new design of the motor and the flex breast shield. Does the freestyle flex have a stronger suction than the freestyle?

1 answer

Medela A.Medela

Hi Samantha

Thank you very much for your question. There are quite a few differences with the new Medela Freestyle Flex. The suction of the pump is the same as very few mothers would use the pump at its maximum suction level.

The most noticeable is the new design of the pump and breast shields. The pump is very sleek, quiet and lightweight. It charges via USB, so you can charge anywhere from your desk to your car. You can also connect your Freestyle Flex with the free MyMedela app.

We also include two different sizes of our new softer "oval" shape breast shields. In designing these new shields it was found that 100% of mothers found them to be more comfortable and easier to fit the natural shape of the breast. There is also the added benefit of 11% more output of milk while using these shields because of the unique design. It is a pump that is very much designed for today's mothers' their busy lifestyles.
If you would like more information please see the link below.

Thank you again for your question, I hope you find this information useful.
Warmest wishes
