It’s the pump you’ve been waiting for. The pump that’s not only smart enough to work with your smartphone, it works for you as a momma – allowing you to pump at work, at home and everywhere in-between.

When you’re expecting, you’re not just expecting a little one, you’re expecting your whole world to change. If there’s anything that can make your life easier, you go for it, right? I know I do! As a first-time mom, I know that I want my breastfeeding journey to go as smoothly as possible so that once my daughter arrives I can focus on learning about her and caring for her. I want to give her the best start and a major way that I want to do that is with my breastmilk. I don’t want to waste any time I have with her messing around with multiple products to feed, track and travel. So I need my breast pump to work for me, not against me in my crazy, hectic life. The Medela Sonata is the solution and the pump that I don’t have to give up anything for. Here are five reasons why I am choosing the Medela Sonata for my breast pump.

  1. It’s Smart
  2. I want a breast pump that can help me track pumping sessions on my smartphone without fuss, because I know myself, and I know I will lose any piece of well-meant paper meant for the job. The Sonata connects to the MyMedela App, perfect for all the tracking your mommy-heart can handle, all done via BlueTooth.

  3. It’s Light
  4. I want something lightweight to carry to the office and anywhere else I go. I am a tiny lady! The Sonata comes in at just over two pounds without lacking any kind of strength. That means I can load up my purse, my diaper bag and my pump bag without being weighed down. It’s also cute and yellow, because style still matters even as a mom.

  5. It’s Strong
  6. I want Medela Symphony hospital-grade strength, with the perks of a personal-use pump. Check. This pump features Medela's classic 2-Phase Expression Technology. The first rhythm that mimics the Medela Symphony hospital grade pump rhythm while the second rhythm can extend the battery life of the pump and can be quieter.

  7. It’s Portable
  8. Did you just read battery life? Yes, momma, you did. The Medela Sonata has a rechargeable battery that allows for those pumping sessions away from an outlet. Perfect for being on-the-go, (hello work life), this is the portable pump.

  9. It’s Quiet
  10. Meant for your comfort, discretion and late-night pumping, the Sonata is Medela’s quietest breast pump yet. I don’t have to worry about waking up the hubby, baby or puppy with the Sonata. It will allow me to pump at my discretion and comfort, no matter the situation.
