Hands - free expressing!The easy expression bustier from Medela is comfortable, relaxing and easy to use.It is the ideal solution for hands-free double or single pumping and can be used with all Medela's 2-phase electric breastpumps.Breastshields.Are you using the right size?A correctly fitted breastshield avoids compression of any milk ducts during pumping to ensure optimal breast emptying and maximum milk output.1. Centre the nipple in the breastshield tunnel.2. Turn on the pump and check the following points:Is your nipple moving freely in the tunnel?Is minimal or no areolar tissue being pulled into the tunnel of the breastshield?Do you see a gentle, rhythmical motion in the breast with each cycle of the pump?Do you feel the breast emptying all over?Is your nipple pain-free?If your answer to any of the above questions is "no", try a larger (or smaller) breastshield.You need a different size if:The shield is too small.The shield is too large.The shield is too large.Medela's range of PersoanlFit breastshields allows mothers to choose the breastshield that is the right size for them, to ensure maximum comfort and efficiency while pumping.Breastfeeding and working?Yes, you can! The benefits for you and your baby are many.It is amazing what (wonderful and varied) solutions mothers find if they really want to work and still enjoy the pleasure of breastfeeding.Expressing:Expressing for every missed feed helps you maintain your breast milk supply.You will need to pump enough milk to leave with your baby's caregiver for a day's feeds and a little spare in the freezer for emergencies. If your milk supply ever drops, remember the golden rule: the more you pump the more you make.Not only this but you also need to pump for longer to stimulate more, so you pump for 5 minutes on each side, after the milk stops flowing. Medela 2-phase electric breastpumps are the best to use for this extra stimulating, as they are gentle and very effective. Switch between the two phases to stimulate increased milk production. For greatest comfort, before you start to express with any pump, wet the breastshield (funnel) and the areoia surrounding the nipple with a little hand expressed milk or cool sterile water. See our Medela chart "choose the breastpump that suits you best."Hands-free expressing!Comfortable, relaxing and easy to use:The Medela easy expression bustier is the ideal solution for hands-free double or single pumping. It can be used with all Medela's 2-phase electric breast-pumps.Storage:Normally, the milk you express today, you give to your baby tomorrow. Date your milk, so you can use the oldest first. Medela make disposable freezer bags and breast milk storage bottles especially for storing breast milk. As with all Medela breast pumps and accessories, they are BPA free and always have been. Medela freezer bags are double lined to prevent freezer burn and to maintain the optimum nutritive value of your precious breast milk.Washing your hands at work:Always wash your hands before expressing. Take your own paper towel to dry your hands (don't use communal towels). You will need your own plastic bowl etc, if you need to wash your pump at work, as well as the necessary sterilizing utensils. You can sterilize at home and use your pump at work. Try Medela's quick clean microwave sterilizing bags.Transporting expressed breast milk:Best to transport in a bag with a separate cooler compartment with large frozen freezer bricks, suitable for SA's warm climate. Medela have a versatile, elegant, CityStyle breast-pump bag with a separate insulated cooler compartment containing 4 milk bottles with lids and a specially shaped freezer brick which will keep your breast milk really cool. It will accommodate the following Medela breastpumps: swing, mini electric, swing maxi, harmony, lactaset and manual.Mothers cope in so many ways:Before you return to work, ask if you can have a private place to express. If you have your own office, you can close the door and pump whilst still working, holding the pump in one hand, or using the Medela easy expression bustier, with double pumping being the fastest. Mothers who work in an open plan office pump discreetly in a corner. Some look forward to this break at lunchtime, put their feet up, read a book, eat their lunch and pump, all at the same time.Working mothers have more milk on Mondays and less milk on Fridays. Over the weekend you can breastfeed often again and that frequent feeding builds up the supply again by Monday.Do remember that these are only guidelines and mothers cope in many different ways. For further information on working and breastfeeding, refer to the article in expectant mother's guide 2016, page 166. www.babytalk.co.za.Available in 7g and 37g tubes.See back of card for instructions.For sore or cracked nipples.Soothes and protects.Safe for baby.No need to remove before breastfeeding.Keeps nipples soft and supple.100% ultra pure lanolin.No additives no preservatives.Copyright © Jane Pitt 2009.PureLan™ 100 for breastfeeding mothers:PureLan™ 100 provides fast soothing relief for sore or cracked nipples.

Warnings:
1. Intended use/population - contraindication.The intended use and indications of breast pumps:I Breast pumps are intended to be used by lactating women in the hospital or home environment for expressing breast milk. Breast pumps are indicated to alleviate the symptoms of engorgement by expressing milk. In case of mastitis, breast pumps support the healing process by removing breast milk from the affected breast. Breast pumps are indicated to relieve sore and cracked nipples and to bring out flat or inverted nipples. Also breast pumps enable mothers to provide breast milk for babies who cannot feed directly at the breast for a variety of reasons such as latch-on problems, cleft palate or premature babies.Intended patient population/user:Adolescent paediatric or adult lactating women. Many women find it convenient, or even necessary, to use a breast pump to express and store their breast milk once they have returned to work, are travelling or are otherwise separated from their baby. Women are often delighted to learn that a breast pump can be used as a supplement to breastfeeding and that some pumps are designed to mimic the sucking of a nursing baby.Contraindications:There are no known contraindications for the harmony breast pump.3.
