The best time to use your breast pump is after the first feed of the day (unless your breastfeeding advisor has told you something different). Hygiene Hands washed and dried before touching your breast pump or body? 1. Hold the pump handset around the narrow neck of the body. Hold it in whichever hand feels most comfortable. As you use it, you may find it’s more comfortable to cup your hand around the bottle. Do not hold it by the air tube. 2. Place the soft silicone cup attached to the horn over your breast so that it creates a seal all the way around with your nipple at the centre of the hole, you don’t need to cover the whole of your areola or breast with the horn, so don’t force it. It should sit comfortably. If it doesn’t feel right, relax and reposition. 3. Once you’re ready, press and hold the power button on the power unit. The pump will start with a gentle massage rhythm that mimics the way your baby latches to your nipple to help you begin to produce milk. It will give you 10 short pulses and one longer pump. 4. After about a minute, the pump will automatically move to more powerful massage settings. If you want to move on onto a more powerful setting, press the “+” button. If you want to move to a less powerful and shorter massage settings, press the “-” button. A more powerful setting doesn’t necessarily make your milk come any faster. Remember, it’s not a race; it’s about what’s comfortable for you. 5. Once you feel or see your milk, you can switch to Express/Pump mode. This gives you a more regular and prolonged pumping action to help you express milk. Press the power/mode selection button once to switch to Express/Pump mode. 6. To move to a more powerful and longer pump setting, press the “+” button. To move to a less powerful and shorter pump setting, press the “-” button. The power will automatically shut off after 30 minutes of express/ pump mode. About you - Get yourself in a comfortable position, sitting, standing or half-lying. The important thing is to keep the pump handset vertical while you hold it against your breast. You’ll also need a flat surface nearby to put the pump and bottle on when you’re done. When your milk is no longer freely flowing, press and hold the power button on your power unit to turn off the pump. Disconnect the air tube from the body lid and gently unscrew your bottle from the pump. • You can store your breast milk in this bottle, by adding a clean sterilised lid or teat and hood (see Page 8 for storage advice). Or decant it into another clean, sterilised bottle or pouch to feed it to your baby. • When you’ve finished using the pump, disassemble all the parts and clean and sterilise as outlined in the cleaning section on Page 3. Don’t clean or sterilise the air tube. • Plug your power unit into a USB charging point (rated 2A or lower) to recharge it ready for next time. • If you want to pause during pumping to change position, or move down to a lower setting that’s absolutely fine. It’s okay to remove the pump from your breast at any time. You can always come back to it later. • You can use the built-in timer to monitor how long you’re expressing for. The power unit will automatically shut off after 30 minutes of expressing. The illuminated LEDs and quiet pump unit allow you to use the pump at night without disturbing others when you want to keep the lights low. Attach the purple carry loop to a belt loop or clip to help you carry the portable power pack around and free up one hand while expressing or moving around.
