Breast pump question- anyone else have this problem

I've only used my Madela swing pump twice, but each time, I have found that black marks are appearing in the clear tubing after I wash it.  Anyone had this happen?  Any suggestions?

  • Is it possibly mildew?  I don't have the medela swing, I am renting the medela symphony, but I was told not to wash the tubing.  The manual says that if it gets moisture/water in it, to run the pump with nothing attached to dry it out.

  • If it's like my Medela PISA you don't have to wash the tubing...no milk comes into contact with it. I just run my pump a few minutes after I'm done to dry any condensation that may have built up while I was pumping. HTH, good luck!
