Rated 1 out of 5 by K-S-U from Inconsistent suction I have used the Freestyle for 3 babies for a total of over 3.5 years of pumping, and have never had issues until recently when apparently Medela made changes to the spare parts kits. I have bought at least 6-8 of the new kits and get inconsistent suction with all of them. I have 2 of the old style connectors (old style have 3 openings in the bottom, new only have 2) so I have used those exclusively, but couldn't figure out which of the membranes and backs were new and which were old, so I still had issues with suction. I have 2 pumps so I can confirm that the pump is not the issue. Sometimes if I take the spare parts apart and put them back together they will work better. Often the membranes will keep popping back out of the connector and obviously don't fit properly. I have previously had a great experience with the Freestyle, so I was very disappointed at the reduced quality of this product and the negative effect it had on my pumping output and overall experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TLock from Inconsistent Suction Like a previous reviewer, I too am having problems with inconsistent suction. Generally it is on one side (I am double pumping). Many times I am having to pull apart my parts and reassemble, switching out parts, to try to achieve proper suction. It’s a little frustrating, especially when already struggling to keep up with baby’s milk intake!

Rated 3 out of 5 by dnails415 from Inconsistent Suction I thought I was the only one encountering this problem but after reading these reviews I see I’m not. I too have to scramble with the parts to get correct suction. I have two sets and for some reason one day the parts will suction fine then the next day there is an issue. I researched online and couldn’t find any resolution to the problem. I thought maybe the parts needed to be fully dried but that did not solve the problem. I really get worried each time I take this pump to work because I never know if it’s going to work properly or not. For as much as this pump costs there should be no problems like this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maggss from Inconsistent suction I have to play with the parts for a good 5 min every time I pump. When I pump at work 3 times a day it really delays my time! I have lots of spare parts and switch them often and still have the problem. I could've bought a spectra by now with all the parts I've had to buy. I've called customer service and they said the parts aren't covered but sent a new pump to see if that would work and it didn't AT ALL.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Emily2007 from Try a different pump.: I am buying my fourth set of these and my baby is only 4 months old. The suction is incredibly inconsistent. It seems like the parts wear out quickly. I clean them with the quick clean steam bags by medela so I don’t know what’s going on. I am taking each apart and putting it back together constantly. I end up frustrated and annoyed. I bought the freestyle because it is convenient with a rechargeable battery and ability to take with you everywhere. However, for my second baby, I am definitely trying something different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pauli from This is great to travel Great to travel but the suction is not the best you still feel a little full after pumping

Rated 1 out of 5 by nicolennnn from HORRIBLE :-( I splurged and bought this pump... I am 4 months PP and I am now on my 5th replacement parts set!!!!! I've spent over $150 on parts. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PUMP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCarr from Just what I needed It is just plain useful to have a second set. It means that I didn't have to wash and sterilize the parts in the middle of the night in order to be able to use them again first thing in the morning. I definitely recommend having a spare set on hand!
