Great to see that you’ve purchased a Tommee Tippee Made for Me Electric Breast Pump. To help you get started and to keep it working effectively, we’ve added all the guidance you should need, plus some handy hint, tips and troubleshooting advice.
Get to know your breast pump You may be wondering how your breast pump handset fits together. Don’t worry, it will soon become second nature.
You can wash these parts:
A. Cup - rounded, soft silicone part that fits into the horn to sit comfortably against your breast. Gently massaging to stimulate your milk flow.
B. Horn - trumpet shaped part that supports the cup while you use the pump.
C. Body – duck-shaped part that you hold and connects the horn and cup to your bottle.
D. Duck-bill valve (purple) – small one-way valve that lets breast milk into your bottle, but doesn’t let it back through as you move around.
E. Diaphragm – small, transparent cup-shaped part that keeps the “wet” side and the “dry” side of the breast pump separate. This makes it a closed pump system.
F. Diaphragm cap – seals to the diaphragm.
G. Lid (purple) – allows you to connect the air tube to the pump, and close the pump handset.
DO NOT wash these parts:
Air tube – plastic tube with purple connectors at each end that attach your breast pump to the power unit.
Power unit – small, portable motor that powers the massage and suction features of your breast pump.
A. Power/mode button – use to turn pump on and off and switch between massage and expression / pump modes.
B. Increase suction power.
C. Decrease suction power.
D. LED display – shows mode, time and charge level.
E. Air tube connector – connect your air tube to the power unit here.
F. USB socket – connect this to a USB power source (rated 2A or lower) to recharge. G. Carry loop – makes it easy to move around while using the pump.
Do’s and Don’ts
X DO NOT wash or sterilise the air tube. This can cause bacteria to build up in the tube and will damage the power unit.
X DO NOT wash, sterilise or heat the power unit. This is dangerous and will damage your power unit.
✔DO wash your hands with soap and water and dry thoroughly before handling your breast pump.
✔DO thoroughly clean and sterilise all the parts of your breast pump that come into contact with milk, following the instructions below. Do this before you use it for the first time and after every use.
Each time you use your breast pump, check all parts of the pump and power unit for any damage. Wash your hands with soap and water and dry thoroughly before handling your breast pump.
Make sure that all parts of the pump have been washed, cleaned and sterilised, and are completely dry.
The power unit for your breast pump uses a battery similar to the one in your mobile phone. Charge it up so that you can power your breast pump anywhere and even move around while you’re using it.
The power unit will come with some charge in it, but you should fully charge it before first use.
You can attach your breast pump to the power unit and use it while the battery is charging. It just means you need to stay close to the USB power source.
The best time to use your breast pump is after the first feed of the day (unless your breastfeeding advisor has told you something different.)
Get yourself in a comfortable position, sitting, standing or half-lying. The important thing is to keep the pump handset vertical while you hold it against your breast. You’ll also need a flat surface nearby to put the pump and bottle on when you’re done.
Hands washed and dried before touching your breast pump or body? ✔

Your Tommee Tippee Made for Me Electric Breast Pump is designed to give you the freedom to express/pump breast milk at home, at work or anywhere that’s comfortable for you. With the portable, rechargeable power pack you don’t need to be connected to a power socket to use it, so you can even move around as you’re expressing/pumping.
Important things to remember:
If it's painful consumers should seek advice from their Breast Feeding co-ordinator, health care professional etc. If it doesn't feel comfortable the consumer should follow steps for repositioning etc as detailed in the manual.
When pumping your nipple should sit comfortably in the centre of the silicone cup and will be extended down the tube of by gentle suction. The pump creates a seal around your areola and nipple. You do not need to cover the whole of your areola or breast covered by the horn. Do not force your breast or nipple into the horn.
Don’t tilt the bottle while expressing. Keep it upright to keep your milk flowing into the bottle.
You don’t need strong suction to express milk from just behind your nipple. Use the mode and power setting that feels most comfortable for you. This may be different at different times of day or at different stages of your breastfeeding experience.
If air is getting in around the silicone cup, your pump may not suck milk effectively. Adjust your position and replace the cup on your breast so that it feels comfortable and the pump is expressing milk.
Charging time may vary depending on voltage and equipment used, from 3-6 hours. When the power unit is fully charged all three of the LED lights will remain on.
We’ve put a lot of power into a small portable power unit, so if you use the highest levels you may notice that the LED lights dim or flash. This is nothing to worry about. It’s just more power going to the pump motor.
The Tommee Tippee Made for Me™ electric breast pump is designed to be a perfect fit for Tommee Tippee bottles and pouches (excludes Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature glass bottles). You may get leaks and spills if you use other brands of bottles and containers that don’t fit correctly.
No. If you have fitted the diaphragm and cap properly, the air tube and pump are separated from your milk and can’t come into contact with the power unit. It’s what’s known as a closed pump.
It’s most likely that there’s some air getting in somewhere, which means the pump won’t work properly.
