This article will focus on the impressive Haakaa breast pump range including how to use the product and importantly, how to sterilise and care for your Haakaa Breast Pump.
The Haakaa Breast Pump range has always been popular with new mums. Haakaa Breast Pumps are made with 100% food grade silicone. It is compact and perfect for mums who are on the go, travelling, are needing to pump in public or somewhere outside the home. The Haakaa Breast Pump creates a discrete environment for the mother to remain relaxed and express in peace with ease. The physical design of the Haakaa is well thought out. It is especially soft and comfortable and fits perfectly into any handbag or baby bag making it a very convenient option. Importantly, it is BPA, PVC and Phthalate free with no cords or confusing assembly required.
How to use your Haakaa Breast Pump:
The Haakaa Breast Pump is extremely simple to use. By placing the top of the pump over your nipple, you need to apply suction. Don’t worry, it is totally normal that it may take some time or adjusting to get the pump into the ideal position. Once the pump is secure and sitting comfortably you can squeeze the base of the pump to help create some flow and movement. Once the milk begins to flow, stay relaxed and leave the pump alone. If required you can gently massage the breast to help with flow. Then finally, once the pump is full, simply empty it into a glass storage bottle and reposition.
How do you sterilise your Haakaa Breast Pump:
The importance of keeping your breast pump safety and sufficiently sterilised is essential. So here are three easy to follow tips to ensure your Haakaa Breast Pump is perfect for use every time.
- Separate the pieces completely
This may sound like a no brainer for some, but you’d be surprised at how many people miss this step. To ensure your Haakaa Breast Pump is sterilised correctly, you need to ensure all components are separated. This isn't just to connecter and the bottle, but also includes any use of breast shields, valves, membranes, any connectors and of course, the bottle itself. The best way to judge whether or not it needs to be sterilised is to ask yourself - did this come into contact with my body or my baby? If yes - it needs to be sterilised. Always better to be safe than sorry.
- Sterilise in the most natural way possible
So many new parents have come across interesting ways to sterilise your breast pumps. Whether it is a microwave method, using a talent solution or hand washing, the key here is to do it in the most natural way possible. This is not only better for the baby but also ensures your breast pump won’t have a heavy build up of chemicals and cause the pump to wear out over time.
- Always have a backup
If there is one thing we’ve learnt through the sterilisation process is that sometimes, you don’t always have access to the cleanest spaces to correctly sterilise in. This is why we always recommend for new parents to have multiple pumps and bottles on hand. It makes it easier especially when travelling and also takes away the stress of being ‘caught out’ without access to an adequately and safely sterilised breast pump.
