Can someone identify this breast pump part?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Came with several accessories I bought second hand, with a Medela pump. Can someone tell me what this is called and/or what it's used for? The underside of that hard plastic shell is a very thin rubbery membrane. It's maybe two inches across. photo-3.JPG

hmm...on a lot of Medela pumps, there's a similar membrane, but it's smaller than the size of a dime. In those case, the membrane is very important as it's one of the parts that creates the suction.

 

You may want to try looking around the Medela site and see if you can find it on their site and perhaps it will have information on what it goes with and how to use it. Good luck!

It looks like an attachment for one of the hospital grade medela pumps (sympony). That's the part that attaches to the pump itself- you open up the top and there's a spot for each of the large circular pieces.

It's the attachment for hospital grade pumps.  You should be able to pull all the yellow off and use the tubing on your pump.

Thanks, very helpful! I was trying to help my flagging supply this weekend, and ended up renting a hospital grade pump. It was very helpful to know that I already had the parts for the symphony!
