    Another reason why I love my medela freestyle is because it's easy to clean thoroughly. The pieces come apart so you can actually clean it, unlike the swing where there are "hidden" parts.

    Hi everyone. We just moved from US to HK with our 7 month old daughter. I brought my Medela pump in style with me, but I think the power cord is not compatible with the outlets here. Can I get a HK power cord somewhere?
    By the way, I just discovered this forum and it's been a great source of information for a new mom who is also new to HK.

    Do you mean just the shape of the plug or the voltage? If it's the voltage, you can get a transformer. Some hardware stores have them. You can also try to look up and call Celki (search medela hong kong) and ask if they have a cord with right voltage

    Thanks. It's the voltage that's different. I am hesitant to use a transformer as it broke our coffee maker not too long ago. But will for sure look into the other option. Thanks!

    That's interesting. I bought my medela from the States and dont have issue using it here. In fact the manual says it caters for international usage. Suggest you give USA medela hotline a call. They are very helpful.

    Just checked with a friend who also brought her pump in style from the States and does not need any transformer or adaptor for use here.
