How to Use a Hands-Free Breast Pump

Using a hands-free breast pump is as simple as one, two, three. But, like every new task, it can be intimidating at first. Here’s a step-by-step guide to using your pump:

One: Wash Your Hands

Regardless of what pump you use, you should always start your pumping session with clean hands. 

Two: Place Your Pump In Position

Accommodate your breast pump inside your nursing bra. Make sure the flange is right on the breast before assembling the rest of your pumping accessories. 

Three: Start Pumping

Turn your pump on, along with any accessories that can help you keep track of your session. Upon starting, make sure that you have a good seal, with no milk dripping out as the pump suctions. 

And it’s as easy as that! With your hands-free breast pump secured in your bra, you have the utmost freedom to use your hands as you please.
