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 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 2 out of 5 by Joann2121 from Did not work for long I ordered spare parts because the originals that came with my freestyle did not work as well anymore. (I've only had my freestyle for 2 months). After receiving these they worked great but it was such a disappointment when one side would not pump as well. I really wanted these spare parts to fix my problem with my freestyle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Irene from Membranes easily damaged My baby is 6 weeks old and I have been pumping once a day since birth to address supply issues. I previously used the pump in style for my first two children and when I was offered the freestyle from my insurance I thought I would give it a try. Instead I have had difficulty with the membranes constantly like other reviewers report. I have difficulty getting them to fit with the connector back piece and yesterday one of the membranes became deformed while using the steam cleaning bags correctly. Now the membrane doesn’t fit at all because it is somehow stretched out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Beccawong from Inconsistent Like previous reviewers, I find the suction has been inconsistent. It is very stressful not to be able to express milk properly as I am headed back to work from my leave and just suffered from mastitis. I initially had issues with the parts that came with my pump and found that sometimes taking it apart and putting it back together sometimes would help. Others, I still did not feel empty and needed to hand express after a pump session. I purchased 2 new sets of parts and noticed an immediate difference in output. Again, the parts have been mixed up and I can’t tell which parts are the new ones or old ones and when I will not be able to maximize output. I’m very disappointed at the inconsistency and the hassle of having to waste time taking the parts apart and putting them back together during the limited time I have to pump.

Rated 2 out of 5 by aspens from Frustration with replacement parts- FreeStyle After a couple weeks of getting inconsistent amounts from pumping I thought maybe I the parts had gone bad. I ordered a replacement set and they were working great for a week. I use this pump at work and today the suction was horrible. I had to single pump each breast and even then it was not as efficient as it had been or should be. Not sure what else to do to get this pump working correctly. I tried washing and thouroughly drying each piece with no difference. Very frustrated customer.

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 2 out of 5 by Megs from Wrong fit I ordered new parts after two months of use and these parts also do not fit together right. This compromises the suction ability of the pump.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SaraG from Same problems as others with suction Thank goodness I didn’t have to pay full price for this pump and my insirance covered part. What a disappointment with the suction. Did a lot of reading and research online and here. Also have to take parts apart while oumping to try to get suction ti eork better. Bought spare parts thinking it would help. It hasn’t. Not to mention each time I have to buy the entire piece and can’t just buy the membrane. Also found out parts can be different the main plastic part the flanges fit into can have two or three holes in the bottom which affects siction - mine only has two and apparently causes less suction. Medela seems to not care, as the reviews date back 6 months and in that time they have done nothing to correct the problems people are having with parts and suction(which are often the same). Hoping they actually do something. I went out and got a hygeia pump. Has its own issues but way better suction in shorter time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by firsttimemama from Inconsistent I thought I was the only one struggling! No exaggeration, I have 6 different sets and my baby isn’t even 6 months old. I’m constantly replacing and still having issues with inconsistent suction and performance. I love the mobility of the Freestyle, but this is crazy for the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Saskia from Disappointed I have bought several of these replacements and I was thinking it was just me having issues but apparently it’s not. It’s really difficult pumping without proper suction....

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jrr8114 from Terrible replacement I bought these part as a back up for the ones that I use on a daily basis. The suction That they provide is much less than my regular part. After personally investigating different reasons it’s because the connection at the back of the part housing does not connect to the tubes with up an appropriate sea that they provide is much less then my regular pump parts. After investigating it I realized it’s because the new parts do not connect with the tubing and create a poor seal. This affects my ability to properly Express my milk and leaves me feeling very uncomfortable and decreasing my milk supply. I had hoped that purchasing from a dealer directly would reduce this risk of a poor Purchase but no joy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Otter from inconsistent suction I have been using freestyle since my twins were born in october. As they were preemies and had to stay at the hospital for weeks after birth I was using hospital pump at the beginning and had great outcomes. I have purchased the freestyle as it was a smaller pump with great reviews. as you can imagine with twins my hands are always full. I have to say I had nothing than problems since the beginning, one time it works great the other I have to adjust the parts 3-4 times in order to get a proper suction. I do not even know how many spare parts I ve purchased so far...but it is a lot... I ve been buying new ones hoping that it will solve the suction issue but so far I had no luck. I thought that is just the way that all the pumps are period. But my friends assured me that it is not the case nad pump should work just as good as the hospital one and for sure the suction power should be consistent. My twins are 4 months old now and I still pump 8 times a day as they wont breastfeed and I am on the verge of giving up due to frustration with the device and all that extra time it takes to fix and reajust all the parts over and over again.

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 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.
