Rated 4 out of 5 Great, but handsfree is better
You have to buy a handsfree bra in order to use this, which is ~$40, so I recommend, just buy the handsfree pump for the beginning. Being handsfree while pumping is absolutely necessary!

Rated 4 out of 5 by pizzalover A must have for a working nursing mom!
I used my Medela Pump in Style with both of my kids with great success. I was able to breast feed excessively through their first birthday while working full time, which was my goal. I will say that with my second child it seemed like toward the end the pump wasn't as strong. Maybe it was wearing out after being used multiple times a day through two kids? Not sure. Maybe it was just me too. But overall, it was easy to use, needed replacement parts were easy to get, and it worked well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RyansMom8 Must Have for Working Moms
While it is not always ideal to have to be nursing and back at work, this pump makes the process so much easier. The cooler located in the bag is perfect, and the tote's bigger size allows you to stuff in extra parts. Three recommendations...if you need the battery pack, keep lots of extras on hand. It requires 8 but I found it drains them pretty quickly. I would also recommend buying extra Medela bottles to pump into. Even though I was using the Playtex system, I found it easier at work to use the bottles and then dump them into my own freezer system when I got home. The Medela wipes were also a must for me...as it made it easier not to run back and forth to the sink with all the parts (for work) while the steam bags were great for home. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chellins Great for the working mom
This is great and made it possible to breast feed past the one year mark. Excellent pump, I will be using it again when my next baby arrives in a couple months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rehanna My Medela saved me !
Out of everything we bought for the birth of our little baby I consider the breast pump the best thing we ever purchased. My baby had a very hard time latching on (in fact she never latched on!) that our lactation consultant suggested this breast pump and OMG it was such a life saver! I pumped at least 3~5 times a day for 3 months and my baby got her breast milk! I HIGHLY recommend this pump for new mother. Please it will save your life !

Rated 5 out of 5 by moonrose2715 Love this pump
Although I have the backpack version (not the tote version) I love this pump. It was relatively quiet and super easy to use. I definitely recommend getting a hands-free bra to use with it, since I typically needed to do a little massage to get my best production, or needed to entertain my baby. I had severe supply issues and ended up pumping a great deal more than planned or expected. I also had a hospital grade pump for a couple of months. I found that the Pump-In-Style worked just as well as the hospital grade pump did. Also, it is very easy to take on the go. I could easily load up everything I needed in my bag, including pesonal items, and carry it as my "purse". It is worth every penny to invest in a good pump.
