The cups are simply used to collect expressed breast milk. They will replace your native pumping kit that usually is a flange with a baby bottle attached at the bottom.
I can say that I found them to be very comfortable! I was able to wear them with a normal sports bra, which is a huge plus for me because I really dislike pumping bras!
While wearing the Spectra Pumping Cups, I could easily move about AND hold my baby while I pumped. They were not intrusive at all.
Yes! As I expressed earlier, my favorite portable pump to use with the Spectra Handsfree Cups is my BabyBuddha! I have a discount code for you inside!
Assemble the backflow protectors by placing the membrane onto the valve connector so it sits smoothly against it (not convex).
This dome-shaped lid is called the Backflow Prevention Cap and it needs to be placed snuggly over the membrane, closing up the whole system.
To complete the assembly on the internal components, place the silicone valve onto the open end of the valve connector.
Now that all of the internal parts are prepared, all you have to do is place the flange and connect the tubing to that little stem piece we talked about in step 2.
