The Freemie Freedom Electric Deluxe Kit comes with Freedom Pump, Freemie Concealable Collection Cups, funnels of 25mm and 28mm, single and double pumping connections and spare parts. The kit contains almost everything you need except the milk storage containers.If you’re in love with the Concealable Cups and other spare parts, but not the entire pump then you can disassemble them and use it with other electric pump, great isn’t it?
The main feature of the Freemie Freedom Deluxe Kit is the concealable cups that can easily hide inside the shirt. As the tagline says these concealable cups fits easily to the nursing bra, enabling you to pump at any time of the day. Of course they’ll slip right under your clothes, but many moms already have large breasts and they surely don’t want their breasts to look bigger. Some may feel that the cups look odd even under the clothes and gives the body odd shape. The cups are breast shape and many may like it or dislike it. So, if you too have large breast, then sports bra can might do the trick for you.
Another important part of a breast pump is the cups available with the pump kit. The Freemie Collection Cups are of 8 ounce capacity each. Some mother that lactates may think that the Freemie Cups are too small to hold all the milk while expressing milk. But for those who want bigger cups, they can use other brands as most of the parts of the Freemie Freedom Kit is compatible with almost all brands of the electric breast pump. Just make sure to read the manufacturer’s list providing the names of other brands that are compatible with it.
Many mothers love the concept of Concealable Cups of the Freemire Freedom Kit. They love having Concealable Cups that can help them to pump milk while driving, at work, while shopping, etc. Some of you might complain that they’re leaky and spills the milk out or have to sit upright while expressing milk. But the key to avoid all these problems as even mentioned in the Freemie’s User Guide, is to first get a perfect fit bra. Using lose or inappropriate bras can cause the funnel tubes to fall down. Make sure the nipple is centered in the hole of the cup. If it’s not positioned correctly, it can cause the milk to spill and the nipple may swell. When expressing milk, you need not sit in an upright position, but you have to set the funnels to the 12 o’clock positions. Otherwise, it will cause the leaks. This is may be the reason why few of moms have the leak problem. The funnels come with the two standard sizes of 25mm and 28 mm. You can even order for 32mm funnel separately. If you’re in love with the Concealable Cups and other spare parts, but not the entire pump then you can disassemble them and use it with other electric pump, great isn’t it?
When it comes to suction level, the Freemie Freedom Kit is adjustable and works smoothly. The Freemie Freedom pump can pull up to 250mm Hg peak vacuum level. For those who have all work to be finished within few minutes may not recommend this pump. The key to breast pump is not to get the milk within a few minutes, but to enhance milk flow and milk production with the mom’s maximum comfortable vacuum level as stated in by the UNICEF about the effect of the vacuum levels during expressing milk.
Next, the pump being electrical you can use it anywhere but somewhere with electricity outlet. The kit does not come with a car adapter, so you would be required to buy the new one or use your old one. I think pump not supporting batteries to run is a disadvantage as you would not be able to use it somewhere you don’t have an electric outlet nearby. But that seldom happens.
When talking about breast pump, we often opt for double pumping as it saves time. Double pumps are surely the first choice of the working moms. Most of the electric double pumps tend to make more noise compared to the single ones due to the electric motor. But Freemie Freedom Electric Double Pump is much quite compared to other pumps. Of course, it would not be like a “as quiet as a church mouse”, but it will surely not wake up your baby. And less noisy the pump is, less you’ll feel stressed and more you’ll express milk. You would not need to raise your voice while talking to your friends when you’re pumping the milk when using the Freedom Freemie pump. You can easily pamper your child while the Freemie breast pump expresses milk. The Freemie kit is a hands free pump, allowing you to do multitasking. You don’t need to keep your hands busy every time you pump. This is surely a plus point for the Freemie Freedom Kit.
The weight of the pump is 4.4 pounds, which is much less compared to other breast pumps like Medela, which weighs 5.4 pounds and Phillips Avent weighs 4.25 pounds. Hence, The Freemie Freedom is not only hands free, but also weighs less. Being lightweight, it will truly help you enjoy expressing breast milk without using your hands as you would not want to take more weight on yourself when expressing.
As the Freedom Freemie recommends, clean all the parts after using and make sure they’re dry before using. But don’t steam the parts like tubes or valves, otherwise you may complain after a few days that the parts got damaged.
Overall, Freemie Freedom Deluxe Kit is a doube electric breast pumps that is designed with creativity. Concealable Freemie Freedom Cups to hide in your clothes, less weight to enhance your hands free experience and electric double pumping, for all moms who are multitasking. As many moms agree “The Freemie Freedom Electric Deluxe Kit with Concealable Cups” makes them feel like “human instead of the cow” and easy to use pump when outside home. However, It is not for the mothers looking for super quick breast pumping. Few flaws like low suction speed, no car adapter and cups not to be used as milk storage, are issues for the mothers should think of before ordering. Breast Pump Ratings
