Push down before turning the posts. It's just like opening a bottle of medicine!
- Confirm that your posts are set correctly. When looking at the pump so that the screen is directly in front of you, ensure that the posts are both set to green if double pumping. If you're single pumping, make sure that only the post on the side that you're actively pumping into is green. The other side should be red. To turn the posts, push down first (like you'd do to open a medicine bottle).
- Ensure that the outer shield is well connected to the silicone inner part of the breast shield.
- Press down firmly on the bottle connector.
- Press down firmly on the breast shield connector.
We recommend using the ice pack. Our ice pack was built to hug our bottles to keep them as cold as possible, but if you want to try another ice pack, go for it.
Our custom bra pad has a built-in space to accommodate the breast shield. This provides a smooth line and the ultimate in discretion. Please see our Quickstart Guide or User Manual for more information on how to put them on.
The tubes connect to the breast shields and bottles via the breast shield connectors and bottle connectors. The tubes allow us to generate our proprietary vacuum-boost technology™ that creates effective suction that feels like a baby nursing at the breast. Milk flows into the breast shields, through the tubes, and into the bottles.
The tubes are disposable and need to be replaced every 24 hours for safety reasons. Any attempt to wash the tubes could also ruin The Pump and will void your warranty. We’re partnering with industry-leading TerraCycle™ to develop a recycling program for the tubes. More information will be forthcoming soon.
We offer an optional subscription program for our tubes to ensure you always have a set ready when you need them.
For safety purposes, each person will need their own pumping kits (breast shields, tubes and posts).
