How to use the Pumpd Breast Pump By New Edition

We recently added this breast pump into our range and thought we would put together a brief blog post to explain exactly how to use it.

First - is the Pumpd Breast Pump right for you?

This breast pump falls more into the "breast collector" category than "breast pump" category because it does not have an actual pump to it. Instead it works with compression.

This means it's ideal for you if:

  • You want a back up for times you're engorged
  • You want to collect let down on one side while feeding on the other
  • You want a "just in case" pump

It isn't the best option if you are pumping for a baby in hospital (like a wee premmie), twins, or every day. In those cases we recommend an electric pump - and we have some great options for you on our website.

How do you attach the Pumpd Breast Pump?

These are the instructions as set out on the Pumpd Breast Pump website and in the instructions in the box.

Method One:

1. Wipe your breast to remove any moisture and to clean the skin.

2. Place your thumb on the milk droplet under the flange of the pump, while gripping the body of the pump with your other fingers.

3. Press down with your thumb on the milk droplet to meet your fingers squeezing the body of your pump.

4. Position your pump over your nipple, making sure your nipple is pointing down and sitting in the neck of the pump.

5. Once comfortable and your nipple is sitting in a position which feels secure, release your grip from the pump.

6. The flange of the pump will stay secured to the skin around your nipple creating a suction. If this suction is causing your skin to pull or feel uncomfortable, simply release some air from the pump or re position your pump in a more comfortable position on your breast.

7. Leave your pump in place and empty into a storage container once almost full, simply re attach to your breast afterwards if you wish to keep collecting milk.

3. With your thumb and fore finger holding the flange back, place the centre of the pump neck over your nipple.

4. Once comfortable and your nipple is sitting in the centre, gently release the flange and allow the pump flange to sit flat on the skin around your nipple.

5. The flange of the pump will stay secured to the skin around your nipple, creating a suction. If this suction is causing your skin to pull or feel uncomfortable, simply release some air from the pump or reposition your pump to a more comfortable position on your breast.
