How do I (dis)assemble my Philips Avent manual breast pump?
Your Philips Avent breast pump is designed to easily (dis)assemble and clean. Follow these simple steps to assemble your breast pump for the next extraction.
Is everything clean?
Make sure you have cleaned and sterilised all parts of the breast pump. Wash your hands thoroughly before you handle the cleaned parts. Always use the pump with the massage cushion.
Insert the valve
Insert the white valve into the pump body from below. Push in the valve as far as possible.
Attach the bottle or storage cup
Screw the pump body clockwise onto the bottle or storage cup until it is securely fixed. If you use a storage cup, you have to screw the adapter onto the storage cup first.
Place the silicone diaphragm with stem into the pump body from above. Make sure it fits securely around the rim by pressing down with your fingers to ensure a perfect seal.
Snap on the handle
Attach the handle onto the diaphragm with stem by hooking the hole in the handle over the end of the stem. Push down the handle onto the pump body until it clicks into place.
Attach the massage cushion
Place the massage cushion into the funnel-shaped section of the pump body. Push in the inner part of the massage cushion as far as possible and make sure that it is perfectly sealed all around the rim of the pump body. Press in between the petals to remove any trapped air.
