The revolutionary Haakaa Silicone Breast pump is a must have for breastfeeding mothers everywhere and really is the simplest way to express anytime, anywhere. It suctions onto the breast and then the pump does the work for you, drawing your milk naturally. So you can use it solely to catch additional milk or while travelling, or it can completely replace your electric pump.
Key Features :
- 100% food grade silicone.
- Saves every drop of breastmilk produced instead of losing it in nursing pads.
- Easy to use, easy to clean.
- Dishwasher safe.
- No cords, batteries or assembly required.
- Suction base ensuring your pump will not fall over.
- 150ml / 5.4oz milk collection capacity.
- BPA, PVC and Phthalate free
How to use:
- Clean and sterilise before first use.
- Suction your breast pump over your nipple. Your nipple should be positioned inside the neck of the pump and feel comfortable. If you need to release some suction simply allow more air into the pump.
- Once the pump is attached gently squeeze the bottom of the pump to encourage let down.
- Once milk begins to flow do not touch your pump and allow the container to fill with milk.
- Remove once your pump is full or you have stopped feeding.
- Place your lid over your pump to stop contamination. Store milk in a glass or silicone container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Any extra milk can be frozen in the freezer. Make sure to label your milk with a date and only fill container ¾ full – allowing room for milk to expand.
- If you are struggling to get your pump going place a warm flannel across the top of your breast and gently massage while your pump is attached. This will encourage let down. Also catch your milk that would otherwise be lost in a breast pad by attaching your pump while feeding your baby on the other side.

Q: Is the Haakaa Silicone Pump Manual or Electric?
A: Neither! It's totally unique. The Haakaa works by using powerful suction to help draw the milk out of your breast as a hands-free, non-electric method.
Q: How long should I leave the Haakaa Silicone Pump on for?
A: Attach your pump and leave leave it to work its magic for 5-10 minutes. There's no need to continue pumping like a hand or manual pump
Q: How do I clean the Haakaa silicone pump?
A: Clean after each use. It is recommended that you clean and sterilise your Haakaa Breast Pump with any steam sterilising system or by boiling in water for 3-5 minutes.
Q: I'm experiencing pain when expressing with my Haakaa pump. Why might this be?
A: Pain may be caused by using too much suction when expressing. When you attach the pump, squeeze the bottom of the pump, place it onto the nipple and then release. The harder you squeeze, the stronger the suction is.
Q: My pump loses suction. Why is this?
A: As your body changes post-birth, he suction strength you may need needed changes too. The most effective way to attach is to fold the flange back, squeeze the bottom of the pump, centre it onto your nipple, unfold the flange and release. Be aware that the more you squeeze the bottom of the pump, the stronger the suction. Your nipple should be in the centre of the Flange and not touching the Silicone Walls. Ensure you check your Pump for any small holes that could cause air to escape to prevent poor suction. You should also assist your breast by holding or cupping it in one hand while attaching the pump in the other to get a centre onto your breast and allow the pump to grasp a bigger area. If you still find that the pump won't suction on properly, it may be that the silicone material has worn and lost its suction. Sometimes this can happen depending how often it is used and sterilised, as well as the method of how it's washed and sterilised – the more you sterilise your pump, the faster it will lose its suction. Some mums find they need to replace their pumps after a few months while others have theirs for years depending on these factors.
- "Brilliant product. First time I used it I managed 2 1/2oz (measured in storage bags) whereas I have never even managed 1oz with other devices- plus there is no hard work involved. I used it without baby feeding on the other side so will be interested to see if it works even better like that. Would really recommend!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Pat
