How to Use the New Medela Quick Clean Breastmilk Removal Soap

Medela has come out with a fabulous new product to make life easier for breastfeeding moms!  Their Quick Clean Breastmilk Removal Soap quickly dissolves breastmilk from all of your pump parts, bottles, nipples, and even your nursing bras & tanks!  No scrubbing needed - even on stubborn residue up to 3 days old!

For use on breast pump parts, bottles, and nipples:
- Separate all your parts (take the breastshield off the connector, and separate the valve & membrane).  Rinse the parts briefly before using the soap.
- Fill your sink or a large bowl with lukewarm water, making sure the water will cover everything you are cleaning.  As the sink is filling, add 3 pumps of Quick Clean Soap for every gallon of water.
- Submerge all your parts in the soapy water and let soak for 5 minutes.
- After soaking, rinse your parts thoroughly with clean water, and then air or towel dry them.

For use on nursing bras and tank tops:
Quick Clean Breastmilk Removal Soap is approved to be used as a detergent to remove breastmilk stains from nursing apparel.  No presoaking is required - you just put 3 pumps into the washing machine and then follow the regular washing instructions on the garment.  Medela has tested the soap on many nursing bras and it is proven to be safe and effective. 

The Quick Clean Soap is clinically tested under physician supervision not to cause skin irritation.  It doesn't have any added fragrance or taste that might discourage your baby from breastfeeding.  It is safe and hypoallergenic.

How do I clean my Medela pump tubing?

We get a lot of moms coming in asking about cleaning their Medela breastpump tubing, whether for the Symphony hospital-grade rental pump, the Medela Freestyle pump or for the personal-grade Pump In Style Advanced breastpump.

One thing to note, milk shouldn't normally be going into your Medela tubing when you pump.  If you see milk coming back into the tubing, make sure of two things:

1. Your pumping bottles are upright while you're pumping and
2. Your valves and membranes are attached fully, and that they don't have any holes or cuts.  Only air is supposed to go through the tubes.

Every time after you pump, disconnect (and clean) all of your pump parts, but leave the tubing connected. Let your pump keep running for another 5-10 minutes with just the tubing connected - this will usually get rid of any little bit of milk or condensation.

If you do see some milk in your tubing after letting the pump run, you can clean your tubes by:

1. Holding the tubing upright in your sink…

More Milk Plus & More Milk Special Blend

Many breastfeeding moms worry about whether or not they are making enough milk for their new baby.  One thing that you can do to help with improving your milk supply is to take the More Milk supplements from Motherlove.  But which of the different supplements to take?

First Decision - Capsules vs. Liquid Drops
- Moms tend to agree that the liquid drops taste horrible!  So most people do buy the capsules, for ease and convenience.
- But the liquid drops are slightly more effective because the herbs are able to get into your system faster and more directly, so if you can handle the taste, you might want to buy the liquid.

Second Decision - More Milk Plus vs. Special Blend
- Both the More Milk Plus and the More Milk Special Blend contain fenugreek seed, blessed thistle, nettle, and fennel seed - all of which are galactagogue (or milk-increasing) herbs.  The More Milk Plus works for most women whose milk supply has decreased due to growth spurts, separation, illness, or stress.
