How do I clean the breast pump kit?
1. Finish pumping.
- While the pump is still running, disconnect tubing from breast shields.
- Continue to let pump run for 2 minutes with tubing attached. This will eliminate condensation that naturally results from humidity.
2. Take apart kit and store breast milk.
- With tubing still connected to pump, separate all parts of your kit that come in contact with your breast or breast milk (breast shields, connectors, bottles, valves, membranes).
3. Wash kit.
- Rinse all separated parts in cool water to remove breast milk.
- Wash and rinse all separated parts in warm, soapy water.
- Rinse all separated parts with clear water.
- Wash all separated parts on top rack of dishwasher.
How do I sanitize the breast pump kit?
If sanitizing your kit, separate all parts that come in contact with your breast or breast milk and boil for 10 minutes. (Boiling may cause tubing to become foggy or cloudy. This does not affect the function of the tubing.)
All parts that come in contact with your breast or breast milk are dishwasher safe as long as they are secure on the top rack away from the heating element.
You can also follow the instructions on Medela's Quick Clean™ Micro-Steam™ bag.
Is there a quicker way to clean the breast pump kit?
You can use Medela's Quick Clean™ wipes between pumping sessions and then clean your kit once you get home. Follow instructions on Quick Clean package.
How do I dry & store the breast pump kit?
Allow all breast pump kit parts to air dry in a clean area and store dry parts when not in use. Do NOT store wet or damp parts.
How do I clean the tubing?
Inspect tubing after each pumping session. Clean tubing if there is any sign of condensation and/or milk.
How do I clean the Lactina carrying case?
Medela suggests a cleaner like our Cavicide, Quick Clean wipe or a wet, soapy cloth.

The arm on the Lactina is sticking. What do I need to do?
For effective operation of your Lactina pump, take care of your piston and cylinder after every few pumping sessions. Wash the cylinder, rubber seal, and vacuum regulator ring with warm soapy water. Rotate the piston in the cylinder.
Can I get replacement clips for the Lactina Carrying Case?
Medela generally sends these out at no charge. The clips that seal the carrying case can break and can be replaced easily. Slide out the old and slide in the replacement.
Does altitude affect the suction level?
The higher the altitude, the more chance the suction level will decrease.
My Lactina has no power -- how do I replace the fuse?
The Lactina pumps have a power fuse on the bottom of the pump. The black cap can be removed with a coin and the fuse can be replaced with a 1.25 amp fuse.
Why can't I adjust the speed with the Vehicle Lighter Adapter?
When operating the Lactina Select with the vehicle lighter adapter, the speed cannot be adjusted.
Do I need to clean the Piston/Cylinder assembly?
Can I travel internationally with the Lactina breast pump?
The Lactina Select can be used with a power converter for that country.
What materials are the kits and bottles made out of?
Medela breastmilk bottles and all our products that come in contact with breastmilk are and always have been 100 percent BPA-Free. Medela breastmilk bottles, storage containers, feeding products and breast pump kits are made with polypropylene. All existing research maintains that polypropylene is safe.
What do I do if milk gets in the tubing?
How much milk should I produce?
In the past it was thought that mothers needed to make more and more milk as their babies grew. Scientists now know that a healthy milk supply remains fairly constant over the six (6) months of exclusive breastfeeding. Your baby will take the amount he needs.
During the early weeks, babies eat very frequently and grow very quickly. By day 10-14, babies should regain any weight they lost after birth. For the next few months babies will gain about an ½ ounce to 1 ounce a day.
Around three (3) to four (4) months, a breastfed baby’s rate of grown begins to slow down. Your milk supply will continue to satisfy the baby until it is time to introduce solids at 6 months.
Be the end of the first week of life, women who are breastfeeding one baby normally make between 19 to 30 ounces of milk each day. Infants between one (1) and six (6) months of age normally drink an average of 19 to 30 ounces a day.
An average size “meal” for a baby is between three (3) to five (5) ounces of breastmilk. Formula is harder to digest and less well absorbed. Formula fed babies may need larger feeds. Consult your healthcare professional for advice.
How long can breast milk be kept in a cooler carrier?
- You can safely store your breast milk for up to 10 hours* with Pump In Style Advanced and Freestyle breast pump cooler bags.
- Direct exposure to the sun, like leaving the cooler in a car, severely reduces the cooling effectiveness.
- Breast milk is safe stored in a cooler at/or below 59 degrees for up to 24 hours.
- The liquid inside the cooling elements is water with food grade dye. The liquid is non-toxic.
Medela does not have recommendations for storing breast milk with dry ice. Consult a lactation consultant or healthcare provider for further information.
*When ice pack is frozen solid
How do I clean or sanitize my breast pump parts?
