If you have a freestyle pump... — The Bump
Breastfeeding

If you have a freestyle pump...

How often do you change the membranes? I pump about 5 times a day and have been using it like that for about 3 months now.

Thanks!

  • I have it and haven't thought about doing any maintenance. I'll be interested to see what people say.

  • I have three sets so I will change them once I notice a difference.

  • I have not changed mine either, but this post has prompted me to do so. I've been using my pump for about 3 months now also.

  • What are membranes? The white things that go on the pump part of the bottle? Also, what other maintenance do you do? Clean the tubing? Anything to the motor part? I hardly ever pump but might start doing it a bit more...help!

  • On a freestyle they are the yellow circle parts that go into the flange holder. Then you put the plastic back on.
