The Ultimate Guide to Evenflo Breast Pumps

Evenflo Pump

New parents know just how challenging it can be to sort through the seemingly endless amount of brands, information, and resources vying for their attention. Even experienced parents can find that the products and advice that worked for one baby might not work for another, causing them to look for new items and alternatives.

Take breastfeeding, for example. Even just deciding whether or not to breastfeed can be challenging. And with so many different pumps, accessories, and brands, finding the right tools for you can feel overwhelming. At Aeroflow, we want to ease you through this process.

Evenflo Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump

Designed for multiple feeding sessions per day, the standard Evenflo Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump stands out from other brands for its durability. It can be used in single or double pumping modes. The hospital-strength, frequent-use pump has a closed system design to prevent milk backflow into the tubing and is lightweight and quiet, ideal for pumping while your baby sleeps. 

The Double Electric pump is highly customizable and has independent speed and suction controls to allow for multiple let-downs. It also has a total of 32 possible settings (eight suction levels with four speeds for each level) that can be adjusted directly on the pump motor. The pump helps to maximize your breast milk output and has 250 mmHg suction strength. It comes with multiple flange sizes for a comfortable pumping experience and is 30% lighter than Evenflo’s previous model. 


The integrated bottle holders on the back of the device make it easy to secure two bottles when not pumping and power your device through multiple power source options, including AA batteries, a standard AC adaptor, and a car adaptor (not included.) 


The kit includes 30.5mm flanges and 28.0mm soft flange inserts to help make milk expression gentle on breasts. The slouch-free design of the flanges allow you to pump at an upward angle without having to hunch over. You can also pump directly into your milk storage bags with the Advanced Breast Milk Storage Bag Adapters. You can even use the pump with a hands free bra!

Evenflo Advanced Manual Breast Pump

The Evenflo Advanced Manual Breast Pump is ideal for occasional use or as a backup to your primary breast pump. Another lightweight and travel-friendly product from Evenflo, the Advanced Manual pump does not require a power source, so you can truly pump anywhere. Additional features include an adjustable pivoting pump handle, multiple flange sizes, and a slouch-free design with angled flanges for less back pain.



How Do Breast Pumps Work?

Breast pumps are great because they mimic your baby’s natural suckling pattern. Just like an average baby, an electric breast pump will create a cycle of suction of about 50 to 90 times per minute, slowing down to one pull per second to initiate milk let down as breast milk begins to flow. 


As breast milk is expressed, it collects in a storage container. The containers are gravity-fed so that the milk that’s released drips downward into them. Breast pumps come with flanges, also known as breast shields, which are funnel-shaped plastic parts placed over the nipple and areola to create a seal. The nipple is gently pulled into the flange tunnel to release milk. Make sure you have the correct flange size for pumping success. 

What Are the Guidelines for Storing Breast Milk?

When you need to store breast milk, remember these guidelines:

  • Room temperature: four to six hours
  • Coolers: up to 24 hours
  • Refrigerators: up to 72 hours
  • Freezer: three to six months


Here is our comprehensive guide to storing and freezing breast milk.

How Do You Clean and Sanitize Your Advanced Double Breast Pump?

Evenflo recommends cleaning your breast pump with soap and water before the first use and after each use. The CDC recommends sanitizing breast pumps before their first use and once daily for babies under three months or for babies who are medically fragile. 


Whether cleaning or sanitizing your pump, always wash your hands before starting. If you’d like, you can place disassembled parts on the top rack of the dishwasher, with smaller parts in a top-shelf, dishwasher-safe basket. For hand washing and sanitizing instructions, see below.

Cleaning Your Pump:

  1. Separate the valve, membrane, and diaphragm from the flange.
  2. Rinse milk off by holding the pump pieces under cool, running water
  3. Fill a clean basin with warm water and mild dish soap. Add and submerge the flanges, bottles, valves, membranes, diaphragms, sealing disks, and cap rings.
  4. Clean with a soft brush and rinse with warm, clean water.

Sanitizing Your Pump:

  1. If using the stovetop, place flanges, bottles, valves, membranes, and diaphragms in a pot or pan of boiling water for five minutes, stirring frequently.
    1. Be careful not to let any pieces settle on the bottom of the pot or pan.
    2. Remove immediately with clean tongs.
  2. If using a microwave sanitizing bag, place the disassembled pieces into the Evenflo Feeding Silicone Steam Sanitizing Bag and use as instructed.

How to Maintain Your Advanced Double Breast Pump?

Just like a car, breast pumps require regular maintenance over time. Several factors contribute to replacement timelines, including how often you pump, the water temperature you use when cleaning your pump, the bottle brush you use (if any), how often the pieces are sanitized, and the type of sanitization method you use. You should also pay attention to wear and tear, replacing when suction feels different, less milk is pumped two to three pumping sessions in a row, or if it takes you longer than normal to pump the same amount. Keep spare parts on hand to immediately replace them when necessary.


If pumping exclusively or more than four times a day, replace your membranes every two to three weeks, diaphragms every six to eight weeks, and hard, non-moving pieces (valves, diaphragms caps, and flanges) every six months. If pumping fewer than three times a day, replace your membranes every two to three months, diaphragms every three to six months, and hard, non-moving pieces (valves, diaphragms caps, and flanges) every six months. 

Can I get an Evenflo Breast Pump Free with Insurance?

Medicaid and most major insurance companies will cover the cost of one pump per pregnancy. This includes pumps from leading brands like Medela, Spectra, and Evenflo. Depending on your insurance coverage, Evenflo breast pumps can often be obtained free of charge. Some plans will even fully or partially cover lactation education, pregnancy support, and postpartum recovery products in addition to breast pumps and pump parts. 


If you’re not sure what your plan will cover, we can help! Start by filling out our quick and easy insurance eligibility form. We’ll be able to verify your coverage and present you with your options. Please note that the deluxe version would incur an additional out-of-pocket cost because it includes additional accessories.
