The Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump Backpack was designed with active mother’s in mind. It truly is all in the bag, the pump mechanism fits discretely into a back pack that is easy to carry everywhere an active woman might need to go. Even the pump system itself is designed for mom’s on the go. A more natural pumping system gives a mom a more natural experience while expressing.
The heart of this breast pump is the mechanism that creates the suction and it is compact enough to fit into a backpack. The motor is very durable for long life and has enough power to pump up to 5 times a day. The whole system fits discretely into a great looking back pack that any mom would not be embarrassed to carry on their back.

The expressed milk cooler contained inside the backpack is removal to make it easy to access the milk when you are ready to feed your baby. The milk cooling system includes 4 5oz. bottles (with lids and travel caps) for holding the expressed milk and cool pack that keeps the individual bottles surrounded by the coolness.
The power to run the pump system comes from a variety of sources; A/C, battery and car accessory plug. The standard power comes from the 9volt power adapter plugged into your homes outlets or anywhere you are at that has available outlets. There is also a 8 AA battery power pack (batteries not included). You can also purchase an optional car accessory adapter if you prefer.
Along with the pump system and expressed milk cooler you will find another important part of the Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump Backpack fits securely inside the the pack. The double expressing system Includes 2 – 24mm PersonalFit™/ SoftFit™ Breastshields. The 5oz. bottles screw into each of breast shields to collect the expressed milk.
According to many of the reviews posted online this is great milk expression system. A lot of the mom’s just love the convenience that this whole system gives them. The backpack look got quite a lot of raves reviews for its overall appearance. The expressing pump system got some really positive comments especially for the speed at which one woman said she was able to complete an expression session in less than 30 minutes (that included setup and clean up).
However, as you can imagine, not all of the comments have been positive for this system. One of the reviewers pointed out that bottles that hold expressed milk does not include nipples for using the bottles directly to feed their baby. Another commenter mentioned that the pack was a bit small and only had room for the parts of the system and did not have room for much else. One reviewer was not impressed with the battery power pack, it apparently did not even last a full session and the batteries need to be replaced. I recommend also visiting Amazon to read some more reviews as they have 323 reviews from many different people who have bought, used and reviewed the Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump Backpack as well.
