If you’re new to breast pumping, your first step is to read the Spectra manual. It’s a small booklet that comes with your pump, and it explains how to use it correctly.

To get started, put on a clean pair of gloves. Open the manual and find the section on hand-washing and equipment care. Get water boiling (or fill a bowl with cold water) and pour it over the parts of your pump that come in contact with milk. Rinse everything off really well, then let it air dry.

Next, gather all the parts of your pump that go into milk storage (the cylinder, tubing, valves, etc). Make sure they’re clean and free of debris. Check the manufacturer’s instructions for how to assemble these pieces.

Plug in your pump and turn it on. Put one end of the tubing into one of the milk storage containers and the other end into the corresponding valve on your pump. Put on the other glove and squeeze the handles together to start pumping milk.

To stop pumping, release the handles together slowly. If you have trouble figuring out how to operate your pump, ask someone else to help you or read through the manual again
