We can understand if you have any confusion about how to use the new Silicone Breast Pump, its such a new concept in terms of breast pumps.  It works based on a gentle suction which draws milk out from your nipple.     Such a great way to catch any extra milk when your breastfeeding baby from the other side.    You can also manually pump if you hold and squeeze it.

Here are some tips on how to use the pump (the gentle method of catching extra letdown)

1. Once the pump is suctioned on, leave it alone. Don't fiddle with it!
2. Gently massage the top half of your breast.
3. Try applying a hot flannel to the top half of your breast - also a warm shower does wonders.
4. Gently hand express to stimulate let down.
5. Attach your pump and left it to do its thing for 5-10 minutes.
6. Most important is relax and just trust.
7. You can attach your pump to your other breast while feeding baby from the other, to catch all your precious milk that would otherwise go to waste.

Allow the pump to do its thing and a warm flannel while gently massaging is the best advise we can give.
