HOW TO USE
Frequently Asked Questions
How to use the bottle?
1. Place your baby in the right position and make sure his/her head is tilted with a pillow or your arm.
2. Connect the Pump2Baby to a Medela breast pump (all models are compatible) and start hands-free pumping with a pumping bra. This would help you attend to your baby while pumping.
3. Once you have some milk in the bottle, start feeding your baby with the nipple.
4. If you are concerned about baby sucking in the air inside the tubing and nipple, you can position the nipple below the bottle, tilt the nipple upwards, and gently squeeze the nipple so that the air can get out from the nipple.

Does my baby suck milk directly out of my breast using the bottle?
No. You still use a breast pump to pump milk out while the Pump2Baby Bottle collects the milk. Your baby doesn't need to suck as hard as nursing because milk naturally flows downward. However, there is a valve on the nipple to ensure your baby paces his/her own feeding.
What pumps are compatible?
The Pump2Baby Bottle is directly compatible with Medela, Evenflo, Ameda, and Ardo pumps. It can also be used with Spectra and Hygeia pumps with a Maymom Baby Bottle Thread Changer.
Would I know how much milk my baby had?
No. The Pump2Baby Bottle mimics nursing and like nursing, you don't know how much milk your baby had. However, having your baby around will stimulate milk letdown and make pumping more effective.
Would my baby suck air in using the bottle?
No. The Pump2Baby Bottle maintains atmospheric pressure during pumping therefore milk always go downwards and your baby would not suck air in. Here is a little video showing how to get rid of the air that was inside the tubing and nipple before feeding your baby.
Can I adjust tubing length?
Yes. You can cut the tubing to any desired length based on your most comfortable position.
What if my baby eats faster than I could pump?
We suggest you buy 2 Pump2Baby Bottles and a Y connector so that you can combine milk pumped from both sides and ensure there is always enough milk for your baby.
What if my bottle leaks?
Please check and ensure all the connection points are tight: Push the tubing tightly onto the post; tighten the nipple insert into the nipple ring; tighten the bottle cap onto the bottle. If you are still experience difficulties, please email us at email@example.com for support.
How to clean the bottle and tubing?
Please download the product instruction here. For cleaning the tubing, fill an infant medicine syringe (not included) with warm soapy water and push into the tubing. Rinse under running water and hang to dry.
Pump2Baby Bottle helps exclusively pumping moms to closely mimic the nursing experience and enhance bonding with baby during feeding.
Pump2Baby Bottle allows you to pump and feed at the same time. If you exclusively pump for 6 months, that's a total of 180 hours saved, some of which could totally be used for sleeping!
Pump2Baby Bottle is especially convenient for pumping moms on the go - you don't have to worry about pumping enough milk before the trip or stopping in the middle of your trip to feed your baby.
Provide Fresh Milk
Pump2Baby Bottle allows you to give your baby freshly pumped milk instead of frozen milk, in which precious nutrients are lost.
Supports Pace Feeding
For pace feeding to avoid overfeeding, simply take the nipple out of your baby's mouth after every 15-20 swallows.
Pump2Baby Bottle is designed to maintain ambient atmospheric pressure to prevent air from entering baby's mouth. Before feeding, please ensure you've pumped some milk into the bottle first and stop feeding once there is no milk left in the bottle.
