Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump
Lansinoh’s Manual Breast Pump provides a portable and convenient option for breastfeeding women who want to express discreetly and in comfort while on the move, as it does not require batteries or an electrical source.
- Ergonomic Handle
- 2 Phase Technology
Designed for ease of use, a simple switch at the top of the handle enables you to switch between the ‘let down’ and ‘expression’ phases of breastfeeding. The ‘let down’ phase mimics your baby’s natural sucking style at the start of the feeding process. The ‘expression’ phase replicates the longer, slower draws your baby makes during breastfeeding.
The ergonomic handle means the Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump can be used with one hand without placing any strain on your wrist. It also features a unique ComfortSeal cushion that creates a secure seal which makes pumping not only more efficient, but also more comfortable
How it Works:
If possible, wait until your breastmilk supply and breastfeeding schedule are well established. This is
normally at least 3-4 weeks after birth, unless advised otherwise by your health professional.
1. Wash your hands thoroughly and make sure your breasts are clean.
2. Make sure you have sterilised and carefully assembled your pump exactly as described in the
sections “How to Clean and Sterilise Your Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump” and “How to Assemble
Your Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump.”
3. Centre the pump opening over your nipple and gently press it against your breast ensuring that
your nipple is centred in the tunnel of the breast cushion. Press the ComfortFit® breast cushion of
the pump firmly against your breast; making sure the seal is secure so that no air can escape. You
can create a good seal by using your other hand to support your breast from underneath. If your
nipple is unable to be centred within the tunnel of the breast cushion without rubbing, you may
need the larger size ComfortFit® breast cushion.
4. As you gently push down on the pump handle you will feel the suction on your breast. You do not
need to depress the handle fully to create a vacuum; only as much as is comfortable.
5. You can create gentle suction pressure in preparation for expressing by setting the handle in the
first (top) notch of the stem. Confirm that your nipple is moving and squeeze and release the
handle until you find your preferred pace.
6. To start with the Let Down Phase, set the stem in the top (first) notch of the handle and squeeze
the handle. Your breastmilk will soon start flowing even though you may not use all the suction the
pump can generate.
7. Once breastmilk is flowing (1 – 2 minutes) change to the Expression Phase. To switch to Expression
Phase, gently press the “PUSH” part at the tip of the handle to set the handle to the second
(bottom) notch of the stem. Continue to squeeze and release the handle to find the appropriate
If the suction pressure feels weak when expressing your breastmilk, squeeze the handle all the way.
The suction pressure changes based on how hard you squeeze the handle. Expressing in comfort is
more important than setting a strong suction pressure. Please express milk at a suction pressure that
feels appropriate for you.
