What is the Momcozy pump?
The Momcozy breast pump is a wearable pump where the entire pump goes in your bra (the motor/battery hub goes on top of it).
On top of the pump is the hub that contains the battery and motor. There are buttons to adjust the mode and suction strength on the top of the hub (so you’ll be able see it when looking down at your chest).
Below that is the collection cup that your milk flows into as you pump. Attached to the hub and the collection cup are the pump parts that fit to your breast and provide the suction – the backflow protector, connector, duckbill, and breast shield.

Momcozy breast pump review
I asked my followers on Instagram what they thought of this pump, and here is some of their feedback.
- Mobility is obviously the biggest pro – you can move around while you pump, and you don’t have pump parts and bottles hanging off of your chest.
- It comes with silicone breast shields, which some people find more comfortable.
- According to users, the suction on this is better than some other wearable breast pumps.
- The price of the Momcozy is good for a wearable breast pump and much lower than other options.
- It’s not super discreet – with the motor/battery, others can obviously see that you’re wearing it, and it is a bit loud.
- The battery life doesn’t last long, so you may need to charge it frequently.
- It can be difficult to position the nipple (because you can’t see it over the motor), and you can’t see the amount you’ve pumped until you’re done pumping.
- Some people said that it sometimes leaks.

Can you use the Momcozy as your only breast pump?
It depends on why and how often you plan to pump.
Because many users (but not all) noted that they get less milk with the Momcozy than with a double electric pump, in most cases I would use it when you need a mobile pumping option. (But not all the time, in order to protect your milk supply.)
(Because milk supply is based on supply and demand, it’s important to consistently remove the same amount of milk to maintain your supply.)
If you’re an exclusive pumper, a Momcozy is great to have as a more mobile option, but I wouldn’t use it as your sole pump to start with.
I’d use the traditional pump the majority of the time, and the Momcozy whenever you need to be mobile.
Pumping at work
If you’ll be at work for eight hours a day or more, multiple times a week, in most cases I would recommend using a traditional pump as described above.
Exceptions to this might be if you have a job where it’s not feasible to take breaks (note that your employer may be required to provide you with breaks under federal or state law) and you need a wearable pump, or if you’ve tested out using both a traditional pump and this pump and found you can get the same amount of milk with both.
If you’re primarily nursing, this pump is fine for occasional pumping to build a freezer stash or for when you’re separated from your baby every now and then.
Wearable breast pump comparison
Wearable breast pumps have gotten more and more popular over the past couple of years.
The premium pumps are much more expensive than the discounted ones, but also come with some benefits. They are quieter, have better customer support (both for pump issues and replacing pump parts), and integrate with your phone using bluetooth.
The discounted pumps, like the Momcozy, are far more affordable but do not have these advantages.
