Know your Freestyle Pump Parts and replacements

There are many parts to the breast pump and I always got mummies having difficulties to describe or name their the parts they need or how to replace them.

This post is for Freestyle Breast Pump which is one of the known Medela electric double side breast pump. It is light and portable and rechargeable which is a plus point for mummies who are always on the move.

Here's a picture that tells you all the parts names of Freestyle Breast Pump.

So how often do you need to replacement the parts?

Part Name

Replacement Frequency

Note

Tubing

Every 3 to 6 months, or

When the connection to the parts or motor is loose (this means loss of suction),

or

Replace pump tubing immediately if there are any signs of mould.

All the pump parts must be dried when assembling them for pumping.

Using wet parts introduce mould to the tubing over time.

Mould particles can transfer through the air and make a baby sick if they drink milk that is pumped with mouldy tubing.

If they are not placed, yellow membrane may start to stretch out and reduce the amount of suction on your pump.
