Why do some products say “Where to Buy” instead of “Add to Cart”? 
Some products aren’t sold in our online shop but are sold by other stores. To make sure you have access to the products you need, the products that we don’t sell in our shop have a “where to Buy” button that shows you where the product is available.

This is our Store Locator, which provides quick options for buying Medela products locally. Medela partners with thousands of specialty shops, distributors, and lactation consultants you can find on our Store Locator. 

Can I leave a review about my product?
