And the Winner Is: Medela Sonata Smart Double Electric Breast Pump

No matter how you cut it, pumping is hard work. Support, lots of water and a really good breast pump are essential to reaching your breastfeeding goals. Medela aims to make your expression time as efficient as possible with their quietest pump yet. The double electric Sonata offers hospital-performance and portability thanks to a rechargeable battery. Its two-phase expression mimics baby, plus two different pumping rhythms allow you to find the cadence that works best for your body. Adjustable speeds and presets make it as easy as ever to achieve consistent results. The parts are simple to assemble and clean too. You can even connect with Smart Solution through the MyMedela app to track your pumping sessions and receive personalized tips from lactation specialists.

What We Love

  • It’s a hospital-strength pump with maximum suction for efficient expression, including an air leak warning that alerts you if tubing comes loose
  • This portable pump gives the user full control over speed, suction and sound, transitioning from a single to double pump with ease
  • Super-quiet and easy to transport (smaller than the Medela Pump In Style and weighs just over 2 lbs) with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery for pumping on the go
  • Two pumping rhythms plus presets for the most productive sessions
  • Easy-to-clean parts that likely won’t need to be replaced
