Is Elvie better than Willow?
The Willow had fewer parts to wash than the Elvie. With only two parts to wash after each pump, it made keeping them all together easier. The Willow allows you to pump directly into a bag. This is a major win because you don’t have an added step of transfer after (if you’re pumping for storage).
Should I buy willow or Elvie?
Both the Elvie and Willow work best when all the parts are dry, so the extra drying time afforded by the second set of parts was helpful. If the user isn’t storing the milk, but just pumping to feed their baby shortly afterward, then the bag innovations of the Willow don’t pay off, making the Elvie easier to deal with.
Can I use Elvie lying down?
