Freemies

Has anyone had any experience with Freemies? They look really convenient.

Re: Freemies

I have heard they work well for driving! But they're are noticeable, which isn't a big deal. They also have to be dumped once filled (of it understand correctly)

Re: Freemies

I'm curious about the Freemie cups too! The option for concealed pumping sounds amazing for the car or office. Instead of buying an expensive pumping bra, I could shell out just a little more for the Freemie cups and be both hands free and concealed I would be using them with the Spectra S1 pump I already have if I got them. Anyone have any experience with them?

Re: Freemies

I'm also curious about them. I wonder how they would work for those who are larger breasted and I feel the 3oz limit would be a disaster lol

Re: Freemies

I ended up getting some for work, since I have to spend a lot of time driving in the car. They're perfect for in the car and now that's all I use, because you also don't need a pump bra. Definitely look bulky and awkward under your shirt, but you are completely concealed!

They do have a little bit of a learning curve to figure them out, but after you do they're great! You can't see what's going on in there so it can be hard to make sure they're working properly, and if the valve isn't aligned properly it won't work. I use the cups with my Spectra pump, and they have adapters for many other pumps too - I haven't tried the actual Freemie pump. They say they hold up to 8 oz. each side, though I've never filled more than 3 oz. per side, so capacity shouldn't be an issue. They are a little messy to empty, so you just have to be careful.

There is definitely a learning curve and until I figured it out I had milk back up in the tubing of my medella pump. I find I don't get as much output with them but it allows two extra pumping sessions as I pump during my commute to and from work.
