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 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 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 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 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 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.
