It is one of the features that encourages milk let-down and encourages your milk to begin to flow . You can create gentle suction pressure by setting the handle in the first (top) notch in the stem and using quick pulses with the handle .

3. HOW TO CLEAN AND STERILISE YOUR LANSINOH® MANUAL BREAST PUMP

Prior to using your pump for the first time, disassemble it (remove silicone diaphragm and stem, ComfortFit® breast cushion, white valve and separate bottle, cap and sealing disk) .

Cleaning: The breast cushion, bottles, handle and bottle stand may be cleaned in the upper compartment of your dishwasher or hand washed with dish soap and hot water . Do not use solvents or abrasives . Rinse with hot, clean water . The white valve, silicone diaphragm and stem, and the ComfortFit® breast cushion can be washed in the dishwasher; however, we recommend washing them by hand to prevent loss and to extend their life . Completely air-dry all parts on a clean towel or drying rack .

Note: Use caution when cleaning the small white valve . It is important for proper suction . Do not use excessive force and do not clean with a baby bottle brush or a teat brush . Gently wash by hand in hot, soapy water and rinse under hot running water .

Sterilise: To sterilise by boiling: Place all parts in a pan of boiling water, ensuring no air is trapped in any parts, cover the pan with a lid and boil for at least 10 minutes . Keep the pan covered until the equipment is needed . Note: It is essential that you use enough water to keep the parts freely floating while boiling .
To sterilise with chemicals: Make up the solution using tablets or liquid . Submerge all parts in the solution, ensuring no air is trapped in any parts . Leave in the solution for at least 30 minutes . Make up a fresh solution every 24 hours .

To use steam or microwave sterilisers: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions . Ensure all openings are face down in the steriliser . Ensure you wash your hands before removing equipment from the steriliser .

5. TIPS ABOUT PUMPING

  • Familiarise yourself with the pump and parts prior to use .
  • The most important part of successful pumping is the let-down reflex . This is when your breastmilk begins to flow freely . The following can help this natural reflex occur: A warmed Lansinoh® TheraPearl 3-in-1 Breast Therapy Pad applied to the breast and light, circular movements of the fingertips working from the outside of the breast towards the nipple prior to and/or during a pumping session .
  • Try to choose a time to pump when you are not rushed and will not be interrupted . Trying to relax while you are thinking of your baby or looking at a photo of your baby can also be helpful when pumping your breastmilk .
  • Overall a pumping session can last about 20-30 minutes but it depends on your body . Remember, successful pumping is a learned art . Early practice sessions may be shorter or longer than stated here and may result in a small amount of breastmilk collected but that does not mean that your body is not making enough milk or that you are doing anything wrong . Milk is produced on a supply and demand basis and pumping your breasts regularly in addition to nursing your baby stimulates and maintains your breastmilk supply .
  • If breastfeeding problems occur, consult with your health professional . You may pump one breast while nursing the baby on the other . This allows you to maximise pumping effectiveness using the let-down reflex stimulated by your baby’s suckling .
  • Make sure the tunnel of the breast cushion is tilted slightly downward to allow your breastmilk to flow naturally toward the bottle .

Precautions when feeding expressed breastmilk:

  1. DO NOT MICROWAVE BREASTMILK! Microwaving alters the composition of the milk and may also create “hot spots” in the milk that could burn the infant .
  2. Always test the temperature of any liquid before feeding your baby .
  3. Do not let a child take a bottle to bed or self-feed for long periods .
  4. To prevent possible choking hazard, test strength of the teat by pulling on the bulb portion . Discontinue use if any tear or crack appears .

6. HOW TO USE YOUR LANSINOH® MANUAL BREAST PUMP

If possible, wait until your breastmilk supply and breastfeeding schedule are well established . This is normally at least 3-4 weeks after birth, unless advised otherwise by your health professional .

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly and make sure your breasts are clean .
  2. Make sure you have sterilised and carefully assembled your pump exactly as described in the sections “How to Clean and Sterilise Your Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump” and “How to Assemble Your Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump .”
  3. Centre the pump opening over your nipple and gently press it against your breast ensuring that your nipple is centred in the tunnel of the breast cushion . Press the ComfortFit® breast cushion of the pump firmly against your breast; making sure the seal is secure so that no air can escape . You can create a good seal by using your other hand to support your breast from underneath . If your nipple is unable to be centred within the tunnel of the breast cushion without rubbing, you may need the larger size ComfortFit® breast cushion .
  4. As you gently push down on the pump handle you will feel the suction on your breast . You do not need to depress the handle fully to create a vacuum; only as much as is comfortable .
  5. You can create gentle suction pressure in preparation for expressing by setting the handle in the first (top) notch of the stem . Confirm that your nipple is moving and squeeze and release the handle until you find your preferred pace .
  6. To start with the Let Down Phase, set the stem in the top (first) notch of the handle and squeeze the handle . Your breastmilk will soon start flowing even though you may not use all the suction the pump can generate .
  7. Once breastmilk is flowing (1 ­ 2 minutes) change to the Expression Phase . To switch to Expression Phase, gently press the “PUSH” part at the tip of the handle to set the handle to the second (bottom) notch of the stem . Continue to squeeze and release the handle to find the appropriate suction pressure .

If the suction pressure feels weak when expressing your breastmilk, squeeze the handle all the way . The suction pressure changes based on how hard you squeeze the handle . Expressing in comfort is more important than setting a strong suction pressure . Please express milk at a suction pressure that feels appropriate for you .
To return to the Let Down Phase from the Expression Phase, (1) Pull the tip of the stem towards you, (2) gently squeeze the handle, and set it in the first (top) notch.
Warning: Do not continue pumping for more than five minutes at a time if no result is achieved . Try expressing at another time during the day . Please remember: Should pumping become very painful or uncomfortable, you should stop using the pump and consult with your health professional .
Warning: Do not turn the pump upside down after pumping .

7. HOW TO STORE YOUR EXPRESSED BREASTMILK

Breastmilk Storage and Thawing Guidelines for Healthy Term Babies Check with your healthcare professional or an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant for specific storage instructions . When freezing breastmilk, store in the back of the freezer . Do not store breastmilk in the freezer door as the temperature can fluctuate when the door is opened and closed .
Before storing, date all breastmilk and use the oldest breastmilk first .

Source: La Leche League International 2017

These breastmilk storage guidelines are a recommendation . Contact your health professional or consult your country’s national guidelines for further information .

Thawing Breastmilk
Thaw frozen milk in the refrigerator or place the containers under cool running water, gradually warming the water until the milk is thawed . Thawed milk can be kept in a refrigerator for up to 24 hours .

DO NOT refreeze milk once it is thawed.
Gently swirl thawed milk before feeding to mix the layers that have separated . Breastmilk is not homogenized and the “cream” will rise to the top . Breastmilk can vary in colour and consistency depending upon the time of the day that the milk was expressed, what you have eaten, and the age of the baby at the time of pumping . For further advice, please contact your health care professional .

DO NOT microwave breastmilk! Microwaving alters the composition of the milk . Microwaving also may create “hot spots” in the milk that could burn the infant .

DO NOT thaw breastmilk in hot or boiling water.
