What You’ll Need for a Successful Pump


If you’re looking to breastfeed but find yourself short on time or equipment, an electric pump may be the solution for you. Here’s a quick guide to using an Elvie electric breast pump:

  1. Decide if you need a Medela pump or an Elvie pump. Medela pumps are more commonly found in hospitals, while Elvies are most commonly found online or in health-food stores.
  2. Locate the pump and battery pack. The pump comes with a battery pack that must be attached before use.
  3. Plug the power cord into an outlet and plug into your computer’s USB port to begin pumping.
  4. Put on protective eyewear and clothes as the motor will create a loud noise! Pumping should last around 20 minutes, but like with breastfeeding, it will take some time to get used to the feel and rhythm of the pumping motion.

Fitting the Elvie


If you’re just starting out with breast pumping, then you’ll need to fit the Elvie pump. Here’s how:

  1. Locate the Elvie pump on the product page and click on the “add to cart” button.
  2. On the checkout page, enter your details including your shipping address.
  3. Click on the “view cart” button to see your items in more detail.
  4. Check that you have selected the correct size pump (A or B), and then click on “add to bag.”
  5. Review your items and make any changes before clicking on “submit.”
  6. Print out your order confirmation and carry it with you to the fitting appointment!

Cleaning and Storage Tips


  1. Before you begin, discharge the battery and clean everything thoroughly.
  2. Store the pump in a cool, dark place.
  3. If your pump starts making strange noises, it may need to be serviced.

Aftercare for New Moms


After giving birth, many new mothers find themselves wondering what to do with their leftover breast milk. While there are many touted benefits of breastfeeding, some women simply don’t have enough time or resources to commit to it. If you’re one of these breastfeeding dilemmas, consider using an elvie electric breast pump.


Here’s a quick guide on how to use an electric breast pump:

-Choose the correct size breast pump for you. Elvie has pumps for both large and small breasts, so finding the right one is important.

-Attach the gear cup to your body. This will hold the tubing and motor in place while you are pumping.

-Put on a pair of gloves if you choose, then connect the tubing to the gear cup. Make sure that the vacuum tube is pointing down towards your chest so that suction can be created. You may also want to secure the tubing with a rubber band or clip.

– Pump away! Once you have a good rhythm, release the buttons on the pump and watch your breasts fill up with milk. If you need help releasing the buttons, someone else can do it for you by holding one end of the tubing
