FAQ Breast Milk Saver


How does the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver work?
It works by suctioning to your breast to catch the breastmilk that would normally be lost from a letdown or leaking breasts.

What material is the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver made from?
The Mumasil Breast Milk Saver is made from 100% FDA approved medical grade silicone. Medical grade silicone is the highest quality silicone available and used in products that come in contact with the skin. The Mumasil Breast Milk Saver has been independently tested and are BPA Free, PVC, cadmium and lead FREE. 
 
How do I clean or sanitize my Mumasil Breast Milk Saver?
Clean the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver after each use. Rinse in cool or warm water to remove any breast milk residue.
Washing Options: Wash up in warm soapy water or place in the dishwasher (top rack). Can be placed in a steam steriliser or boiling water.
Please do not use abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
 
How do I dry my Mumasil Breast Milk Saver?
Allow the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver to air dry in a clean area. Store dry in a clean area or clean, closed container when not in use. Do not store wet or damp.
 
Who is the Mumasil Breast Milk saver suited for?
Any breastfeeding mother who wants to catch precious breast milk that would usually be lost in a breast pad when feeding, or a mother who needs relief from engorgement. It is convenient to have by your bedside to relieve extra engorgement at night.
 
How can I encourage the let-down reflex?
Apply a warm compress (such as a face wash) to your breast before a feed to encourage let-down and milk flow. Massaging the breast before attaching the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver can also encourage the let-down reflex.
It is easier to encourage a let-down and express milk when you are relaxed. Feeling rushed and flustered will impair your let-down.
 
Do I need to squeeze the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver in rhythmic timing to mimic an electric pump?
This is not recommended as continuous pressure and suction on the breast could possibly damage breast tissue. It is strongly recommended that your follow the instructions on how to use the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver. It is also recommended that the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver is used for no longer than 10-15 minutes on the breast at one time to ensure there is not too much pressure or suction on the breast tissue.
 
What should I do if I experience a loss of suction when using the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver?
Repeat the initial instruction steps and gently squeeze the unit to re-establish suction.
 
What should I do if the suction is too much and causes pain?
The Mumasil Breast Milk Saver should not cause any pain. If you experience any pain remove it immediately by squeezing the base of the unit to release suction. You may need to adjust how much you are squeezing the unit several times until you find your desired level of suction.
 
Is the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver safe for your breast?
The Mumasil Breast Milk saver is safe to attach to your breast and you should only just feel the suction. The Mumasil Breast Milk Saver should not cause any pain. If you experience any pain remove it immediately by squeezing the base of the unit to release suction. We recommend you use the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver for no longer than 10-15 minutes on the breast at one time to ensure there is not too much pressure or suction on the breast tissue.
 
Would you recommend the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver for a mother who is wanting to exclusively pump? 
We don't recommend using the Mumasil as a pump. With the Mumasil there is no constant suction to mimic the baby feeding from the breast like how manual or electric breast pumps work. It suctions to the breast to create a seal so that milk from a letdown or a leaking breast can be collected without spillage. We recommend you use the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver for no longer than 10-15 minutes on the breast at one time to ensure there is not too much pressure or suction on the breast tissue.


When I am using the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver I am getting very little milk, why is this?
The best time to use your Mumasil Breast Milk Saver is during a feed when your baby is feeding from your opposite breast. It is recommended that you encourage a let-down before attaching the Mumasil Breast Milk Saver to your breast.
