Help – there is no or very little suction. What can I do?
It’s most likely that there’s some air getting in somewhere, which means the pump won’t work properly.
- Check that the air tubes are connected securely at both ends and there are no kinks in them.
- Make sure that the horn forms a comfortable seal around your breast. Adjust your position if you need to.
- Check the duck-bill valve is clean and opens easily. Give it a gentle squeeze if it’s stuck.
- Check the diaphragm and diaphragm cap are secure and there are no signs of damage.
