Can the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump be used with other brand bottles?
It is recommended to use the Lansinoh® breastmilk feeding and storage bottles with the Smartpump double electric breast pump, as they are designed to work together. Moms may also pump directly into the Breastmilk Storage Bags with the Smartpump for convenience and to save time.
What other products can be used with the Smartpump?
The TheraPearl® 3-in-1 breast therapy packs can be used with the Smartpump as a complimentary pumping aid. Simply heat the pack according to the instructions, affix around the breast flange to encourage let-down and reduce time spent pumping.
The Simple Wishes® hands-free pumping bra may also be used with the Smartpump. Not only does the pumping bra-free up moms’ hands during pumping sessions, but it also helps create a better seal for the pump flanges, improving suction.
How often should the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump/components be replaced?
There is no specific timeline for replacement. It is recommended to inspect the pump and accessories for wear and tear daily. If any parts are cracked, misshaped, or no longer connect, it is recommended to discard and replace them.
Are the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump and accessories dishwasher safe?
The accessories of the Smartpump may be washed in the dishwasher, not the pump itself. The breast flange and bottle(s) may be cleaned on the top rack of the dishwasher or hand washed with dish soap and hot water. All other parts of the breastmilk expression set should be hand washed to prevent loss and extend their usefulness. To clean the breast pump base, wipe with a damp cloth, using only water or mild soap.
Can the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump accessories be sanitized in boiling water?
Yes, it is recommended to sanitize the pump prior to first use, and regularly as needed during usage. Disassemble all parts and boil for 5 minutes. DO NOT boil the tubing, tubing connector or the pump base. Please be sure that there is ample water in the pot so that no portion of the accessories touch the bottom or the sides of the pot as this could cause them to melt. Remove all parts from the water immediately after boiling. Completely air dry before assembly or next use.
Are Lansinoh® Bottles BPA-free?
Yes, the Lansinoh® bottles and NaturalWave® Nipples are BPA, BPS, and phthalate free.
Is the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump portable?
Yes, the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump is portable. It can be used with the A/C adapter, 6 AA batteries (not included), or the 9V car adapter (sold separately).
What choice of settings does the Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump offer?
The Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump was designed to mimic baby’s natural feeding pattern and includes two phases: ‘let-down’ and ‘expression’. The ‘let-down’ phase uses quick and short suction to initiate the milk flow, while the ‘expression’ phase maximizes milk flow through longer, deeper suction. In each of the two phases, moms can also adjust the suction strength. The pump offers three different pumping styles to match baby’s individual feeding patterns and a choice of 8 different suction levels within each pumping style.
What features does the App automatically track?
The Baby App automatically tracks the date, time, and duration of the pumping sessions. The amount of milk pumped may be manually added to the pumping session log.
How is the app downloaded?
The Baby App is available for download from the US iOS or Android® app store.
