Medela pumps

For the mamas using a Medela pump, how often do you change the membrane!? ( the white small circle on the pump) I just bought
one and I was wondering about them, thanks in advance! :smile: 

Re: Medela pumps

  • I just changed them out when I pump wouldn't pump anymore which happened about once a month. Idk if that's the right way but that's what I did. If your pump ever stops working it's more than likely those little white things. I had no idea they were so important - I had called Mandela for a new pump bc I thought mine broke and it was just those.

    Really!? Wow who would of thought those things were so important! Thanks!!
  • I've only had to change them out once but I only pump once or twice a day.

  • I've changed them twice, good reminder to order more now! Mine has never stopped working due to that but I figure it doesn't hurt to "refresh" all the parts every so often. I pump 3x daily 5 days/week.

    Your supposed to change them? I haven't had any trouble with my pump and the white peice seem to be in good shape. 
  • I think I have replaced two throughout the 8 months I've been pumping due to a small tear. 
  • I never changed mine the whole 4 months I breastfed, I always washed them and never had an issue.

    I exclusively pump and have only had to replace the membranes when they have had a tear in them. It's only happened a handful of times.
