Each Medela part plays a significant role in providing reliable suction. There is more than the motor that moms should look into if there is ever an issue with a pump; from breast shields to valves, moms should know what each part does and how it contributes to a successful pumping session.
Beyond the motor, the Medela breast pump parts include the breastshields, connectors, tubing, valves and membranes. The breast shield is where the nipple is introduced into the pump. The suction will be at its greatest here, attempting to pull as much milk from the breast as possible for each session.
There are different sizes that allow comfort for the mother. A lactation specialist should be consulted to see which would be the best fit, but a good rule of thumb is to measure the diameter of the nipple in millimeters. The connector attaches the breastshield, tubing, and valve. The tubing is what brings the power of the motor to the nipple.
With the Medela Pump in Style Advanced pump, you are able to pump with a double or single option. The tubing needs to be connected properly and with no damage to ensure suction will be stable.
