Breastfeeding is a massive time commitment. And, it doesn’t stop for work or travel. I love and use the Spectra as my main pump at home, but I was also really in need of a portable option that would allow me to pump while continuing to work. I did a LOT of research and decided on the Willow, due to its reviews and promises of the strongest suction. I’ve been using it for two months, and I feel like I can finally offer it my wholehearted recommendation. A warning: For the first week or so, these pumps will infuriate you. You MUST watch their how-to videos, because there are several little tricks to make them work that are not as intuitive as I’d like them to be! There were several times in the early days that I wanted to just give up, but then I watched more help videos (that are provided by the brand’s accompanying app) and got the hang of things. Now that I have, I really don’t know how I would have gotten through the holiday season without them. They’re a must-have, as are the storage containers you have to purchase separately to use in lieu of their bag system. I find that the containers are much easier and more efficient.
