Frequently Asked Questions

Breast Pumps: The Lowdown on the Letdown

How do I clean and sterilise my nursing pump parts?

Cleanliness is key! It’s very important to keep breast pump parts sterile and hygienic, especially for babies 12 months and younger. We recommend giving your bottles and breast pump parts a nice, gentle wash in soapy warm water and then sterilising them with steaming/boiling techniques or with a UV steriliser.

How often will I need to replace my breast pump parts?

It depends on how often you use the breast pump, and for how long. If you exclusively use breastfeeding pumps, then we recommend replacing your pump inserts every 4-6 months and your diaphragms/valves/membranes every 6-8 months.

Can I use other brands of bottles with Milkbar’s breast pumps?

Yes, some brands will fit our models. Avent bottles, narrow-necked Tomee Tippee and Medela bottles will also fit. We have larger versions of our bottles with come with the double pump available herehttps://milkbarnewzealand.com/products/milkbar-180ml-bottle-and-lid

What are the Milkbar breastfeeding pumps made out of?

We use 100% BPA free plastics in our breast pumps combined with food and medical grade silicone for your peace of mind.

What is a breast pump bra for?

Hands-free pumping! We know, it’s genius. Wear it during pumping sessions and fit your breast pump into the designated cutouts, secure, and start the pump! That means your hands are completely free to do something else instead of hold the nursing pump in place. It’s a game-changer.Find them here.

What Does Hospital Grade Mean?

Hospital-grade means that the motors used in our Advanced Flow Double & Single pumps have been tested to withstand a high level of use in a hospital type setting where multiple users are using it over a long period of time.
