I was so excited to get my hands on a Willow Go Wearable Breast Pump! The Willow Go recently came out as the more affordable and often insurance-covered Willow pump option. I tried it out and here are my thoughts.
This pump has great ease of use. I was able to easily put it together. It comes with a written instructional booklet and there are also great instructions on the app. I liked how you can start pumping with or without the app since there are times when I may not be able to use my phone when I need to pump. If you do pump without using the app though, you will have to choose your settings off of feeling as there is no digital screen. I was able to get great output from using this pump and the milk easily poured out the pour hole in the top.
The only downside I would say about this pump is that you cannot easily do the fridge hack (where you put your parts in the fridge between pumps instead of washing them every time). The motor is in the center of the pump, so you would have to disassemble it if you’d like to put your parts in the fridge between pumps, and if you’re going to have to do that, you might as well just wash them.
Willow Go vs. Willow 3.0:
I like the Willow Go better than the Willow 3.0. The Willow Go is much easier to use. It is easy to assemble, and I just don’t run into technical difficulties as I do with the Willow 3.0. The only thing the Willow 3.0 has over the Willow Go is that you cannot bend all the way over in the Willow Go. In the Willow 3.0, you can literally be doing yoga in it. With the Willow Go, you need to keep your chest somewhat upright in order to not spill any milk.
