What should I do if I experience loss of suction?
It's common for there to be a low volume of milk when first starting to express. Expressing successfully does need a bit of practice, so relax, take your time and don't worry if things don't go to plan straight away. It's important to find a routine that suits you, and if you are unsure in any way, ask for help from your Healthcare Professional. If you're still concerned about the pump itself, here's some things to consider: Make sure all connections are secure. The silicone insert on the horn should be forming a complete seal around the breast. Ensure that the valve is clean and not damaged in any way as well as checking that the air tube is securely fitted to the upper pump body and to the motor unit. It's also worth looking at the air tube for any kinks! The list below will help you identify any specific causes for loss of suction, or milk going back up the tube. Make sure you've checked all the following common causes. 1. Inside the pump you will notice a hard valve and silicone membrane, please ensure that the membrane is pointing away from the breast whilst expressing. 2. The small hole on the upper pump body needs to be clear and uncovered. 3. The pump needs to be held straight and not at an angle. 4. The setting may be too fast for your milk flow; you may need to turn it down to a lower setting 5. Check that the membrane is not missing or has stuck to the hard valve.
