Main Features Explained
Breast pumps are breastfeeding equipment that are in direct contact with the mother’s breast, whose function is to suck the milk from the nipple area and deposit it in a collector. In this way, the milk can be consumed by the infant.
As can be seen, it is a simple process, but for which it is necessary to maintain an adequate level of hygiene. In this sense, we will be avoiding the transfer of bacteria to the baby, which will henceforth affect her digestive system, as well as irritations on the mother’s skin when the adapter is placed.
For all these reasons, Medela Harmony offers a simple and intuitive cleaning method, thanks to the fact that the structure is very easy to assemble and disassemble. In this way, you can unscrew the adapter cap attached to the bottle and then release the suction membrane. Thus, you will not have inconveniences to wash each piece separately.
To carry out this process you can use a special brush for this type of equipment, which allows you to get rid of any type of embedded residue inside the collector and other areas. Likewise, it is valid to use a soft sponge with detergent. Finally, it is recommended to sterilize the product, completely eliminating any type of bacteria.
