Today I am sharing my Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump Review. Read through to read the pros & cons of this hands-free breast pump, and to find out if it is right for you. I purchased this breast pump myself, this post is not sponsored.
I became a first-time mum in May 2023 and let me tell you – trying to figure out what I needed, what would be a luxury, and what would be a waste was challenging! There is so much information out there and it can be pretty overwhelming as a first-time parent to figure out what you actually need. With that being said, there are just two quick things I want to share before we hop into the review:
- I’m not a lactation consultant. I’m just a new mom who is sharing her own personal experience and review. If you are experiencing issues when it comes to breastfeeding or pumping, reach out to your doctor or a health care professional.
- However you choose to feed your baby is your choice and I am not implying any shame or glorification over breastfeeding, pumping, or formula feeding. This is simply a review of a breast pump I have been using and if you’re looking for a breast pump then I hope that this review helps you.
Okay, let’s get back to the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump Review.
When I first had my son, one thing I wasn’t sure I would need was a breast pump, but I quickly realized that it would be a part of our new-parent journey. Just like researching the rest of the new parent/new baby items, figuring out which breast pump was best for us was confusing and challenging.
The first breast pump I purchased was the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump. While I liked the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump, I found that staying in one place for 15-20 minutes at a time to pump was not a great use of my now very limited time. So, I began to look into hands-free breast pump options.
There are quite a few hands-free breast pump options on the market, but because the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump was the most affordable and seemed to offer the same features as most others out there, I decided to order it.

Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump Features
The Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump comes in two options – a double pump or a single pump, and both you can get in either a clean white colour or gradient pink and white colour. It has 3 modes (expression, stimulation, and mixed) and 9 levels of suction so that you can find the best pumping routine for you.
The Benefits of Hands-Free Breast Pumping
This breast pump is a hands-free breast pump which makes it a really great choice for moms who want to be able to get up and move around while pumping. I personally found it really convenient to pump hands-free because it meant I was able to collect milk and sit at my desk and work, do dishes, clean the house, or play with my son, or whatever else I needed to do during that time.
Prior to purchasing the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump, I had purchased the Lansinoh pump and while I liked it, I found it difficult to get much of anything done while I pumped. The Lansinoh does come with a battery option that is supposed to make hands-free pumping somewhat possible but I never found it worked as well as I had hoped because it was quite large and clunky. I share more about the Lansinoh Breast Pump in my Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump Review.
The Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump is wireless which means that all the components of this pump sit in your bra and there aren’t any wires hanging out or getting tangled which is very convenient for wearing and moving around.
Assembling, Application & Use
Putting together the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump is very simple. There aren’t many parts to this pump and it only takes a few seconds to put together for each use.
Putting on the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump is also fairly easy, but it does take a bit of practice.
I am quite small-chested so this pump does require a bit of adjusting to get it to properly adhere to my chest but the more I have used it, the easier it has become. I bring up that I am small-chested just because I feel that does make it more difficult and that if you have a fuller bust you may find it much easier to put on. Since I have had some issues with putting on the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump, there have been times that it has leaked which is very frustrating.
When worn correctly though, the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump is really comfortable and easy to use. You simply just put it on, tap a few buttons, and go about your usual tasks while it collects milk.
You will also want to make sure you invest in a few bras that work with the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump as these will help with the placement of the pump as well as reducing the chances of leakage. Momcozy does have their own nursing bras you can invest in and I did buy a few, however, I found I liked these hands-free pumping bras much more and that they worked much better.
Choosing the Right Flange Size
One thing that can affect your experience with the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump (or any breast pump) is the flange size. This is the part of the pump that creates a vacuum seal around the areola and ensures the pump is able to properly draw out the milk, so if it doesn’t fit properly it can be uncomfortable and also affect how much milk you’re able to pump.
Most pumps come with a standard 24mm size flange, and that is the size that comes with the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump. Momcozy has a guide on how to find your right flange size which is quite helpful, and the pump also comes with a measuring guide to help you.
If you find that the standard size flange won’t work for you then there are options online from Momcozy that you can purchase to give your Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump a better fit.
Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump Charging Time
The charging time on the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump is quite fast as it only takes 1.5 hours to fully charge, and that gives you about 140 minutes of pumping time which is about 5 or 6 pumping sessions. After each use, I typically just plug my pump back in just so it is always at full battery, but that isn’t necessary.
Cleaning the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump
The Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump only has five washable parts: the valve, linker, diaphragm, flange, and milk collector. So, it is very fast. and easy to clean. See full Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump Cleaning Instructions here.
Let’s Talk About the Cost
If you’re looking at hands-free breast pumps then you likely know that they can be pricy! I was honestly sticker-shocked when I began shopping around for a hands-free breast pump until I found the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump.
The Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump is $189.99 CAD, which is a pretty good price in comparison to many on the market. While it’s still an investment, it felt like the best option for me because it had all of the features I was looking for and at a more reasonable price than others I had looked at.
Replacement Items For The Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump
Replacement parts for the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump are fairly affordable as well and easy to order online. While you can order them on Amazon, you can also conveniently order them from Momcozy directly. The silicone accessories should be replaced every 1-3 months, and other parts are to be replaced as needed.
To summarize, I am really happy with the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump. It is easy to clean, convenient to use, allows me to work on other tasks while I pump, and is reasonably priced. I love that I am able to put on the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump and go about my other tasks & chores around the house. It’s made pumping & working from my computer possible again and I really appreciate that.
The one negative about this pump is that I have experienced leaking while using it. Losing and wasting milk is very frustrating and there have been times when I have had difficulty getting a good seal from this pump and have lost quite a bit of the pumped milk.
While I have found putting it on to have a slight learning curve and there have been times it has leaked, I still find it to be a really great and practical pump and I am extremely happy I made the investment into it.
