One side of my pump isn’t working, what do I do?
If you’re only having trouble with one side of your pump, this can often be fixed by checking or replacing the parts in your pumping kit. Check first to confirm all the parts are connected properly and nothing is loose or visibly cracked. If all parts are properly assembled, try replacing your membranes and (and membrane cap if you are using a Medela). If your pump still is not working properly, reach out to the manufacturer.
My pump is running, so why am I not getting any milk?
There can be lactation issues which cause or contribute to milk supply issues, but, if you’ve ruled out a lactation problem, the most common cause for no milk flow during a pumping session is using the wrong flange size for your body. If the flange is too small, it will constrict the nipple which causes poor milk output and can cause pain as the nipple rubs against the flange sides. If the flange is too large, it can keep your body from signaling for milk letdown and can cause pain in the areola and surrounding breast tissue which gets pulled into the flange, but does not stretch easily like the nipple. As with any pump problems, also remember to check that your parts are properly assembled and there are no visible holes, cracks or tears in the parts.
How often do I need to replace the pumping kit?
It is recommended you replace the soft parts, such as the membranes (and tubing if you choose a pump with an open system), every 3 months or more frequently as needed. While many parts can last 3 months or longer with proper care, they can also wear out faster through normal wear and tear so consider keeping a spare pumping kit on hand for emergencies.
Why should I consider upgrading my pump choice?
We offer upgrade options so you can use your insurance benefit towards getting exactly what you want. Many of our upgrade options offer additional accessories or features that my help your pump fit into your lifestyle such as a carrying bag, cooler packs, rechargeable batteries, “smart” features or the ability to pump hands-free. You have enough things to worry about; don’t let your pump be one of them.
