Medela Freestyle Breastpump Giveaway!

What happens when you're done breastfeeding and no longer have a use for your pump? 

Choose the correct answer: 

A. Post it on Craigslist?
B. Sell it at a garage sale?
C. Donate it to Goodwill?

D. None of the above

Actually, it's not legal to sell a used breastpump. So, what do you do?

Throwing away your often-expensive breastpump seems wrong on so many levels. But how do you keep it out of the landfill?


Fortunately, Medela has the answer! The Medela Recycles program focuses on helping moms who have completed their breastfeeding journey help other moms start theirs. By donating your pump to the Medela Recycles program, you support the donation of new hospital-grade, multi-use breastpumps and supplies to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Since parents of preemies and other infants in the NICU can't be at the hospital 24/7, the same high-quality equipment used at the hospital is available for use during their stay at a Ronald McDonald House. It's just one less thing for parents to worry about during this demanding time.

Did you know that nearly 40% of the families served by
RMHC are caring for babies in the NICU?  By recycling your pump through Medela Recycles, you can feel good about the fact that your pump is being recycled properly and is helping another mom (and baby) who really needs it. Your recycling directly translates to caring for families in crisis in a tangible, meaningful way. And you don't even have to pay for postage! Click here to learn more.

In exchange for my helping to spread the awareness of the Medela Recycles program, the kind folks at Medela are giving away one of their popular Freestyle breastpumps to one lucky winner in the Green Grandma community. How awesome is that?! 



Valued at $399, this compact, lightweight double electric breastpump features a rechargeable battery for mobile pumping. Its 2-Phase Expression technology is based on the two distinct phases of how babies breastfeed and is proven to produce more milk in less time!

When babies latch on, they initially suck faster to start the milk flow. This is called the stimulation phase and is followed by the expression phase where babies slow down with a deeper suck after the "let-down" starts. The Freestyle's 2-Phase Expression technology works the same way. Plus, with the Easy Expression bustier, moms are able to pump hands-free!

Enter to win the Freestyle pump in the Rafflecopter below. Contest is open to US residents only, ages 18+. Entries will be verified and winner will have 48 hours to respond before an alternate winner is chosen.

Good luck!

  2. I love Medela pumps! As a full time working mom I pumped for over a year w/ my last baby, and know a lot of my success was due to having such a great quality pump! I've used (and loved) the Swing, Symphony, Harmony, and PISA!

  5. I really need a new pump. I used my insurance to get my last pump when my daughter was born two years ago. Now i'm expecting baby #4 and my pump isn't working and my insurance wont cover another one. with 4 kids affording another pump is gonna be hard. I have my manual pump that still works but I want the best start in breastfeeding. I was hoping I could take my pump to the hospital when baby is born so I can pump even if he's too sleepy and even if my after labor pains get so bad it's hard to hold him. Labor pains get worse with each birth and after #3 were pretty bad. I always have such a hard time breastfeeding but I learn new tricks with every baby.

    Would love to win this for our daughter. She is constantly pumping to feed our granddaughter breast milk because the baby has no suck reflex. She had purchased a used pump while pregnant, but because of how often she is pumping, the pump seems to be wearing out. Our granddaughter is only 9 weeks old. They could really use a new pump!

    1. Yikes! It's actually illegal to sell a used breast pump! I'd agree with you... she needs a new one! Good luck, Trisha.

  8. My son has a terminal illness making him completely fed by a feeding tube. I have been exclusively pumping for him for over a year. Breast milk will always be good for him due to his disease and digestions issues, so I will be pumping as long as I can. I would love to be able to do things while I pump and not be attached to a wall. It will also help at doctor appointments that I don't have to plug my pump in. My pump is 4 years old, it is the one I used for my first. So I would love a new one as mine is starting to go out because of how much I have used it.

    Thanks,

  10. So glad to learn that Medela is recycling pumps. A new pump that gets more milk faster sounds like the dream, as I return to work in a couple of weeks and have a very limited amount of time to pump.

  11. I would love to win a Medela breast pump! I'm having my first little one in a few months and I am 100% set on breastfeeding. However I will have to return to work soon after he's here and I know the Medela pump will help me continue to exclusively breastfeed once I do. Thanks so much for the chance at the giveaway!

  12. I would love to win a Medela pump because it would benefit my child! There are so many benefits and I want to do what's best for my child. My insurance does not cover electric pumps, and a manual will not be enough when I return to work. This would be just what we need and great to win!
