Mamas can breast pump without any hassle with safe and secure backflow protectors for their Handsfree Cups. These accessories maintain milk flow and preserve suction. Our distinct design boosts the pumping process with these backflow protectors made from BFA-free material.
These parts used intensively get worn out within months of use. Keep one handy inside your breastfeeding kit. That way, you’ll have a spare for replacement whenever required. Reduced suction when pumping is often a sign to check your accessories, maybe your backflow protectors need replacing.
Spectra Handsfree Backflow Protector is compatible only with the Spectra Handsfree Cups.
If you are double pumping, you will require two pieces.
In order to avoid any issues with your breast pump, which might void your warranty, Spectra strongly recommends using only original accessories along with your Spectra Breast Pump.
How often do I need to replace the backflow protector?
You need to replace your backflow protectors regularly. Over time, the elasticity of the silicone membrane wears down which impacts suction, and that can have a negative impact on your milk supply. When the elasticity is worn down, the pump motor has to work harder than it normally does to maintain the same level of suction, which reduces the overall life of the motor. The worn-out silicone membrane also loses its airtight and watertight seal. If you don’t replace the backflow protectors, you’re risking moisture or milk entering the tubing and the pump motor.
