With my first, I used a traditional pump. But with my second, my traditional pump was getting in the way of my life. It's heavy and cumbersome and I wanted to quit breastfeeding because of it. Willow go is helping me achieve my goal of one year of breastfeeding. I'm at 8.5 months so far. It does take getting used to. You have to make sure you assemble the parts correctly. But I can multitask and do chores. I can play with my toddler. I can carry my baby. I can do all these things without cords dangling from me or wearing a specific pumping bra. It's also so helpful that the pump can rest independently without fearing it will tip over or spill all the precious milk. I've already recommended it to a pregnant friend of mine.
