Review by keldenz on Nov. 01, 2011
Loved this pump!! I am a stay at home mom but I still pumped 1-2 times a day depending on how the day went. It is very compact. It isn't too loud. I love that it can run off batteries if you need it too. Super easy to clean and very easy to find replacement parts.
It isn't as strong as a double but this is the top of the line single pump. I wouldn't recommend using just batteries becasue you will burn though them quickly. Like another review said every once in a while it would just randomly turn off--but did come right back on.

Great pump! Very easy to use and clean. Has an ac adapter or battery option which makes it super portable and convenient. I actually pumped twice in the car while on a 7 hour drive when my daughter was only 6.5 weeks old. Love that the suction setting can be changed.

This pump is top of the line for a single pump.
Since it is a single it is still slower than a double for full time pumpers I recommend a double like the pump in style but for occasional this pump is great.

Great pump for occational pumping. Quite, compact for traveling. Love that it can run on batteries.
I don't like that you can only pump one breast at a time. I didn't like the softfit breast shield it came with.
Medela pump in style

Great suction, battery operation if you want to use it on the go. I used this as my second pump as I exclusively pumped. My at home pump was the in style
Single pump so its slower
Double pump - Pump in style

I love this pump. I am a stay at home mom so I only have to pump occasionally and this pump has been perfect for me. It's very small so easy to take along anywhere. I love the battery option which makes it very easy to use in the car.

Love this pump! Super easy to use, even while baby is nursing on the other side. Suction levels can be changed to speed the process up.
The fact that it is portable is a huge bonus - plus the option to plug in or use batteries is great for times when you have to pump on the go.
This pump can be a bit loud in the middle of the night.

Review by wasil21 on Oct. 04, 2011
small enough to fit in the diaper bag when travelling and loved that its ac or battery powered
can be time consuming since you can only pump one breast at a time. Have had the membrane stick closed cause milk to enter the tube but other wise no issues and easy to clean.

Review by SarahSue on Nov. 15, 2010
great pump! I had a cheap EvenFlo pump and wow, what a difference! Definitely worth the money. I ebf but pump on occasion for when Daddy has the baby for an errand or whatever and this definitely gets the job done.

I haven't tried any other pumps so this might be biased but I LOVE this pump. I never had any problems with it, easy to use, easy to clean- battery option is awesome.
Its not a double- but I'm not willing to pay the price for one of those. If you are going to be pumping often I'd suggest investing in a double, less time and you'll pump more since you'll miss the first let down on the other side.

Review by MandyB on Jan. 17, 2011
I loved the portability of the Swing. It was nice and small to tuck in my diaper bag to take with me places and had great sucking capabilities. I love the letdown mode and how it worked incredibly well for me.

Review by kammyboom on May. 31, 2011
Is a good pump, it gets the job done.
I had to opened it a clean it several times because the milk started to get into the motor. not the best thing when you just wanna pump and take care of your new born.

Review by Free2bdee on Apr. 04, 2011
Loved this pump for a first time "pumper" It was a great intro to breast milk pumping and my hubby found and bought it for me on his own!
It felt like it took forever to pump both sides!!

Review by julianasmommy1026 on May. 01, 2011
Easy to clean and set-up. I liked having control over the speed. Love the price for such a great pump.
I lost my power adapter and had to use batteries. It drains the battery very quickly.

Review by mf0820 on May. 25, 2011
So easy to use and clean. The shield is comfortable and I feel like I got a lot of milk pumped in a short amount of time. I exclusively BF but pump for use in cereal and homemade baby food. I will soon start giving a sippy cup full of breasy milk and am confident that this pump will make that quick and easy for me!
You can only pump one breast at a time...but, the price is reflective of that.

Review by cdnmommy on Sep. 21, 2011
For a single pump this one is great! Tried using a manual pump and couldn't handle the cramping in my hands and didn't get enough milk from that method. Loved that it could plug in OR run from batteries!

Review by JuliaS on Nov. 14, 2010
This pump was great! Very easy to use and very portable! Would probably recommend a double if you need to pump very often though!

Review by dittyangela on Nov. 16, 2010
Very quiet and small. Easy to use and clean. I could nurse my son and pump all at once. Love the ac adapter or battery option. Batteries last a long time in this pump as well.

Compact, easy to use
Not effective enough, preferred my rental medela symphony (of course though, hospital grade is going to be better)
Double electric

Lasts a long time. I'm using it for baby number 2 now!
Single pump, so a bit slow. Sometimes it turns off for no reason.
