Cleaning and Hygiene
• Use drinking water quality to clean the breast pump.
• Clean parts immediately after use to avoid dry up of milk residues and to prevent from growth of bacteria.
• Disassemble all parts prior to cleaning. Especially be sure to remove the yellow valve head from the breast-shield and separate the white valve membrane from the valve head.
Important Prior to first use and once daily
• Dismantle, wash and rinse all parts of your pump kit that come in contact with the breast and milk, except motor unit.
• Place parts in a saucepan of sufficient capacity.
• Fill with cold water until the parts are well covered. Optionally, a tea spoon of citric acid may be added to avoid a build-up of limescale.
• Heat it up and allow to boil for 5 minutes.
• Remove from stove and drain water off.
• Dry parts with a clean towel.
Alternatively, the disassembled parts can be sanitized in top rack of dishwasher or steam-sterilized. Note: Food colorings may discolor components which will not affect performance.
• Disassemble and handwash all parts of your pump kit that come in contact with the breast and milk in warm, soapy water (except motor unit).
• Rinse in clear water.
• Dry parts with a clean towel.
• Use a damp (not wet) cloth to wipe the motor unit after each use.
After cleaning, when parts are not in use, put in a clean zip lock bag or store in a container with lid. Alternatively, the parts can be wrapped in a clean paper or cloth towel.
Instructions before using Breast pump:-
Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching the breast and pump parts.
Avoid touching the inside of bottles and lids.
Clean the breast and surrounding area with a damp cloth.
Do not use soap or alcohol which can dry the skin and cause cracked nipples.
Storing and thawing breastmilk
4–6 hours at 19 to 26 °C ( 66 to 78 °F)
3–8 days at 4°C (39 °F) or lower
6–12 months at 8 to 20 °C (0 to 4 °F)
In refrigerator for 10 hour max. Do not refreeze!
Do not store breastmilk in the door of the refrigerator. Instead choose the coldest part of the refrigerator (this is at the back of the glass shelf above the vegetable compartment).
You can freeze expressed breastmilk in milk bottles or “Pump & Save”* bags.
Do not fill the bottles or bags more than 3/4 full to allow space for possible expansion.
Label the bottles or “Pump & Save” bags with the date of expression.
Do not thaw frozen breastmilk or do not warm breastmilk in a microwave or a pan of boiling water to avoid loss of vitamins, minerals and other important components and to prevent burns.
ln order to preserve the components of the breastmilk, thaw the milk in the refrigerator overnight. Alternatively, you can hold the bottle or “Pump & Save” bag under warm water (max. 37 °C).
Gently swirl the bottle or “Pump & Save” bag to mix any fat that has separated.
Avoid shaking or stirring the milk.
Do not use breast pump if the answer is NO to below question:
-->Is your nipple moving freely in the tunnel?
-->Is minimal or no areolar tissue being pulled into the tunnel of the breastshield?
-->Do you see a gentle, rhythmical motion in the breast with each cycle of the pump?
-->Do you feel the breast emptying all over?
-->Is your nipple pain-free?
--If you experience problems or pain during expression, consult your breastfeeding and lactation consultant or midwife.
