How to Use a Medela Breast Pump May 21, 2015 16:34

Electric breast pumps save moms precious time and make their lives much easier when feeding their new babies. The Medela breast pump is simple to use as long as you understand where each piece goes and how to get started.

Each tube needs to be connected to the motor at one end and the top of the bottle on the other. The piece you place against your breast should be connected at the top of the bottle in front of where the tube is. As you begin pumping, the gentle pressure and suction is meant to stimulate the breast to get the milk flow going. Once milk is flowing into the bottle, you can adjust the power level of the Medela breast pump to make it pump faster and help you express more milk in a shorter period of time.
