How to Use With your Mumasil Breast Milk Saver or Breast Pump
The Mumasil Warm and Cool Breast Packs can be attached to the outside of your breast pump flanges or the flange on your Mumasil Breast Milk Saver. Simply place your breast pack inside the breast pack cover and heat as per heating guidelines. Wrap the Mumasil breast pack around the outside of the breast pump flanges and use the press stud to clip the Mumasil breast pack into place. The warmth from the breast pack encourages a letdown and milk flow when pumping.
