Why Solo™ Hands-free?
  • Ideal for multi-tasking

  • Intuitive controls – just 4 buttons 

  • Easy to use and clean – just 3 parts 

Solo™ Hands-free comes with the unique Medela wearable collection cup which offers:

  • Anatomic design: designed to fit your breast shape to support effective milk expression and maximum comfort. 
  • Ultra-lightweight: with only 76g, it is amongst the lightest available, designed to fit comfortably and discreetly in your bra.
  • 3 parts, easy to clean: easy to assemble and dishwasher safe, making pumping less time consuming.
  • Transparent design: Makes it easy to check that you are placing your nipple correctly into the tunnel, preventing rubbing and supporting effective milk expression. The see-through cup helps you notice when and how your milk is flowing, and measure your volume at the end of pumping.  
  • Connectivity: Enjoy automatic tracking by connecting with the Medela Family™ app – your personal assistant that provides automatic real-time tracking, personalised, science-based content as well as smart tools and pumping tips.
  • Intuitive Control:  with only 4 buttons, the Solo™ Hands-free pump is intuitive to use and easy to control.

Wear it together with your nursing bra
With its compact and lightweight design the Solo™ Hands-free pump with its wearable milk collection cup is designed for mums who need to have the freedom to move whilst pumping.  The Solo™  Hands-free’s cup fits comfortably inside most nursing bras, meaning you can stay hands-free for a completely relaxed or multi-tasking pumping experience, check out our Keep Cool Bra and 3 in 1 Nursing Bra.

Shaped to fit, shaped to work  
Unique* design based on the anatomy of lactating breasts offering great support for the breast and in particular for the underside of the breast which contains the sensitive milk-making tissue.1, 2
