As a fairly seasoned pumping mom (mom of 4 here!), I love being able to try new breast pumps. Recently, I received a new Motif Luna breast pump to try!
There are several things that I look for in a pump and the Motif Luna seems to check all those boxes:
- Closed System
- Light Weight
- Digital Controls
- Strong pump motor
So I was very excited to test it out! Find out how it performed, what I loved, and if I think this is a good choice for a pumping mom!

Unboxing the Motif Luna
While unboxing the Motif Luna, the thing that stood out to me the most is how sleek the Luna design is. It looks very modern.
I also love, love the grey and mint color scheme! The mint really adds a nice pop of color. It’s very visually appealing. I would have no problem leaving this out on the coffee table when company was over visiting. It does not scream, “medical device,” to me.
The next thing I noticed when taking the Luna out of its box was how lightweight it is.
Motif Medical lists its weight at 2 lbs. I have to say that I thought it was going to weigh more as it looks so sturdy but it really is very light. I can see carrying it in my pump bag with no issues at all!
Pump Parts Pre-Assembled
This might seem like a small thing to appreciate but I was very pleased to see that the collection kits were pre-assembled and packaged separately.
Even if you are not new to pumping, trying to piece together some of these collection kits can still be confusing. Motif really does a good job of keeping this simple for moms.
Of course, you need to sanitize all pump parts before using the pump for the first time but it helps to see the setup and will make it easier to reassemble.
Motif Luna does not have a ton of parts compared to similar pumps, which is a HUGE plus in my book. Less to wash!
Includes 2 Bottle Nipples
I always love when pumps include bottle nipples and necks with their collection kits. It is so convenient to be able to pump and feed from the same bottle!
Using the Motif Luna
What I Loved
I have been in the middle of ramping up my freezer stash for my infant daughter. This means a lot of pumping and there are things about that Motif Luna that has made that so much easier!
Massage and Expression Modes
I love that the Luna includes a Mode button. This allows the pump to switch from Massage Mode to Expression Mode and back again without having to manually change the cycle and level settings.
This can help you make the most of your letdown (and time)!
Memory Start Mode
The Luna automatically remembers your preferred pump setting from the previous session. So basically it will pick up where you left off.
I typically switch mine back into Massage Mode before turning it off since I don’t want to be in Expression Mode at the start of a new pump session. It makes it nice to not have to reset the cycle and level settings each time I start pumping.
Quiet Pump Motor
The Motif Luna features an extremely quiet pump motor. It’s like a quiet hum. Definitely a huge plus for working moms or moms who need to pump in public settings.
I really love the nightlight built into the Luna. The Mint color at the top of the pump glows very softly and features 3 settings. It’s a really nice feature and one I can see using often.
Since I tend to pump hands-free, I am often distracted while pumping. The digital screen on the Luna features a timer that displays how long you have been pumping.
It will automatically shut off at the 30-minute mark which is very helpful for those middle of the night pumping sessions (I have been known to fall asleep…).
More Milk, Less Time
I found the Motif Luna to be a very efficient pump. While some pumps might take a full 15-20 minutes to pump a full 4 ounces, I was able to pump that in less than 15 minutes with the Luna.
It is a strong pump but I think the ability to control the cycle and level settings helps to maximize each letdown.
Is the Motif Luna a Good Option for Moms Who Pump a lot?
The question I get asked the most when it comes to breast pump reviews is if a specific pump is a good option for moms who pump a lot.
The Motif Luna is definitely a great option for moms who pump frequently or even exclusively pump.
It has the strength to help maintain a good milk supply. The digital controls also make pumping faster and easier helping to maximize each letdown and pump more milk.
In the below video a certified lactation consultant discusses the features of the Motif Luna. It’s a quick watch and very informative!
Overall, I have been very impressed with my Motif Luna.
If I had to point out any shortcomings, I would probably say my least favorite part of the Luna is the fact that it does
not have a battery option. I wish it had a builtin rechargeable battery. While for most moms that isn’t a deal-breaker, it is nice to have!
Despite not being portable, I still feel the Luna is great for pumping moms!
If you want a strong, quiet, and easy to use pump then the Motif Luna is an excellent choice!
It is very gentle and would be perfect for any mom who is sensitive to pumping or who is struggling with low milk supply.
I highly recommend giving the Motif Luna a try!
