Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! Since I am a first time mom I didn't know what to expect about the breastfeeding journey. Medela made it very easy. The Pump in Style is just what I needed. I am a mom of twins and I have gotten the best out of this pump and I am now 15 months in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pump I have used this pump for 6 months now, as an exclusive pumper. It gets me the most milk in the least amount of time. I have tried other popular brands but always come back to my PISA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 9 Months strong! I bought this product through my insurance when my son was born in January. This brand and pump is beyond amazing! I am so glad that out of all pumps I chose the medela. I have tried a few other brands as I had no choice because my insurance sent it two weeks late. I hope to keep using this product but for some reason I am now having a hard time finding the correct connectors. I have the connectors which the tube goes in the little hole on the top. All in all I love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! My insurance covered this product and so far it’s great. I was using another brand until I was able to get this Medela and I personally can say that it works great and fast.Love the fact that it has it has two tubing ports which makes it stronger compared to the one I had only has one, in less then 10 minutes it takes out a lot of milk.I’m glad I was able to try this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for business travel This is my second PISA. I successfully pumped and breastfed for a year with my first child so the PISA was my choice again for my second child. I picked the pump out from an insurance approved medical supplier website. I travel weekly for work. I primarily pump in my car using the 9V power adapter. I also fly with this pump and use it at the airport. It's compact enough that it doesn't weigh me down. Do yourself a favor and buy: extra pump parts, the Medela cooler, the six pack of storage bottles, a good handsfree pump bra, and a nice bag to carry it all in. Great thing about the Medela PISA is that accessories are readily available at many retailers so you always have options if you forget to pack a part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!! I absolutely love my Medela Pump in Style. With my first child I exclusively pumped for 1.5 years (with a medela pump as well) and with the fear that my second child wouldn't latch I was going to need a pump that could with stand the busy pump schedule. Luckily little SJ was able to latch and I am pumping while at work! its seriously one of the best pumps out there. Gentle, quick and best of all not loud!

Since this pump has a battery pack, does that mean you can take it in the go and pump without an outlet? 

Asked by: Ashangel
Yes, the battery pack will allow it to be used with 8AA batteries instead of a wall outlet. If you have any further questions, feel free to live chat with us on our website. We're here to help!

Does this pump require an outlet to plug it in? 

Asked by: Lindsey P
Hi Lindsey P--- Our Pump in Style Advanced can be used with the wall outlet or with our 8-count Battery pack. The 8-count battery pack is separate from the breast pump unit and requires 8AA batteries. It's a great option for more portable pumping!

I have the advanced personal double pump and received a breastpump bag at my baby shower. It doesn’t fit in the bag with the pump still in the black/Velcro “bag” it came in. It is safe to place and use the pump without the black/Velcro “bag“ it came in?

Asked by: britt0528
We don't recommend removing the breast pump motor from the black case that it originally came in since that will expose the motor. If you have any further questions, please consider live chatting with us on our website. We'd be happy to help!

My wife is having a issue with the punp and not getting a good amount of milk while pumping., any suggestions??

Asked by: Skie
Hi Skie--- We're sorry to hear that. Below are a few scenarios to consider. 1. If she is finding that the breast pump produces a strong suction, but she is unable to express breast milk, we would suggest taking a closer look at the sizing of the breast shield. Our breast shield sizing guide can be found here: www.medelabreastshields.com. 2. If the suction strength of the breast pump is functioning well, she has properly fitted breast shields, and also notices low milk expression when breastfeeding, then we would suggest reaching out to a lactation consultant for further suggestions. 2. If she feels as though the suction strength is low and she is unable to express breast milk, then please reach out to our team so that we may further troubleshoot with you. When reaching out, please be sure to provide reference number 242435. We hope you find that information helpful. Have a great day!

What is the difference between this pump and the Pump in Style Advanced On-the-go Tote/backpack and Freestyle? 

Asked by: Clamm813
The pumping mechanism of the Pump in Style Advanced Starter and Pump in Style Advanced On-the-go Tote and Backpack will be the same. The main differences will be in the bag and accessories included with each. Our Freestyle breast pump is a different pumping mechanism and design. The Freestyle has a digital display, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, memory settings, and can be used while mobile. The breast pump can be clipped onto your jean or belt loop. When used with our Easy Expression Bustier, it allows for mobile and hands-free pumping. Please consider reaching out to our team via live chat on our website if you have additional questions.

How do you clean the pump itself? I have seen some post where there is mold under the faceplate... I have checked and there isn't any currently, but I would like to clean/disifect the membrane to prevent it.

Asked by: MNoel85
We recommend cleaning the diaphragm with a clean damp cloth, without soap. Allowing the diaphragm to completely dry before placing the faceplate back on should help prevent any mold from forming. You'll want to ensure that it remains free of moisture. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our team via live chat on our website. We'd be happy to help!

We would like to supply the batteries at our workplace for moms to use with thier own attachments. An employee raised concerns saying your particular model is not for sharing as breast milk can get back into the pump. can you confirm or deny this?

Asked by: Melanie Rocha
Hi Melanie--- Our Pump in Style Advanced is a personal-use breast pump that should not be shared among moms. Although it does have Overflow Protection at the pump to block breast milk from entering the motor, it is not designed as a multi-user breast pump. Our Symphony Hospital-grade Breast Pump would be an excellent option since multiple moms can use it as long as they have their own attachments. Please consider reaching out to us via live chat on our website if you have any other questions. Have a great day!

Is this pump supposed to suction to your breasts? I had no suction when I used it last and had to hold both sides during the whole session so they didn't fall off. If it is supposed to, any tips for getting better suction?

Asked by: dani87
The breast pump parts will need to be held at the breast for best results. The breast pump is not intended to create a suction strength that will keep them in place by themselves. If you feel that the suction strength is not at a normal level, please consider reaching out to our team directly via live chat on our website. We'd be happy to help!

In the cover of the black case it says that the motor must be upright when pumping. Does that mean that the on/off knob, letdown button, and the tubing should be facing upward or sideways (like in the picture)?

Asked by: Riki
Hi Riki--- The on/off knob, letdown button, and the tubing should be facing sideways like in the picture. If you are standing in front of the pump, the buttons/knobs should be facing in toward you and not up to the ceiling. Hope that helps! Please feel free to chat with us on our website if you have any other questions.

Is this system open or closed? 

Asked by: Ktravis
In the market, the term "closed" refers to a membrane that blocks milk from entering the tubing or motor. Medela calls this membrane Overflow Protection, and it is part of every Medela double breast pump, both personal-use and hospital-grade (multi-user) breast pumps. Medela breast pumps are therefore, by market definition, considered to be closed systems. Some Medela breast pumps have this barrier located at the kit, or breast shield connector, while others have this barrier at the pump motor. Our Pump in Style Advanced has this Overflow Protection at the pump. Please feel free to chat with us on our website if you have any additional questions. Our team is always happy to help!

- "Dual power options". Does this mean it can be used elsewhere(For example India?). One of my friend said that her adapter plug burst when she used a converter. Is there any option for us to use this pump both in India and US with plug instead of battery

Asked by: yyyy
Our Pump in Style Advanced is currently able to be used with the 8-count Battery Pack or 9V Portable Vehicle Adapter when travelling outside of the U.S. It is not a dual-voltage adapter that should be used outside of the U.S. or with a power converter since it could potentially damage the breast pump or power adapter.

Hello! My PISA was exposed to sub-zero weather for several winters.  I have tried it out and it still works fine, but I am particularly concerned about unseen internal cracks or failures introducing contaminants into the milk.  Is this possible?  Thanks!

Asked by: Megan1
Hi Megan1--- There is no contamination risk to expressed breast milk. The primary risk of storing your breast pump outside the storage guidelines is degradation of the diaphragm seal, cracked diaphragm or faceplate all of which will result in low vacuum.You can find your breast pumps storage temperatures in the Technical Specifications in the instructions for use.

Hi Dave--- Our Pump in Style Advanced may sometimes make a squeaking or grinding sound when the motor is changing directions, but this will typically not sound like a beep.
