The Medela Freestyle Flex is a double electric, compact, portable breast pump, designed to perfectly fit into your life. Featuring wireless connectivity via the accompanying MyMedela app on your smartphone, to track pumping progress, and a built-in rechargeable battery, which lasts for up to eight double-pumping sessions, giving you the flexibility to express wherever and whenever you like, with no need to search for an outlet, and there’s even a USB port, for powering up on the go.
Weighing less than 300 g (10 oz), the Freestyle Flex is small enough to fit into the palm of your hand and is light enough to carry around with you anywhere. Pairing with the app on your smartphone, which runs alongside the pump, allows you to time pumping sessions, and records how much breast milk you’ve expressed. For your convenience, the app also notifies you when the battery is running low.
The intuitive illuminated digital control panel allows you to start or pause pumping, switch expression mode, and adjust vacuum levels. You can also activate a Delay start function via the panel, which gives you ten seconds before it starts pumping, particularly useful if double pumping!
One of the best features is the double pump facility itself, which means more milk in less time. The double pump halves the time spent expressing, by collecting 18% more milk on average, compared to pumping from each breast.
As with all of the pumps in the Medela range, the Freestyle Flex features the 2-Phase Expression® technology, which mimics your baby’s sucking rhythm; fast to stimulate milk flow, then slower to feed, for a natural feel, and the overflow protection ensures that milk doesn’t enter the tubing or motor during pumping.
As an added bonus, the PersonalFit Flex™ breast shields included with the Freestyle Flex, which offer added comfort and an improved milk flow, improving your overall experience.
Medela have made sure you have it all covered, by including everything you need to collect and store your breast milk, including a carry bag and a cooler bag to help keep the milk fresh if pumping away from home.
Overall, the Freestyle Flex is a great investment in baby’s feeding, providing an efficient, time saving pumping solution, with the flexibility to express wherever and whenever you like, with no compromise on pumping performance.
