Ameda pumps are unique by providing a viral and bacterial protection
barrier. The Airlock Protection feature of our HygieniKit Milk
Collection System helps protect breast milk and the baby from bacteria,
mold and viruses while pumping. This barrier keeps tubing dry by
preventing air flow between the expressed milk and pump tubing while
pumping. There’s no need to clean the narrow tubing and the milk stays
- Do I need to warm up my baby’s milk? If
you have a newborn baby who needs milk given in a bottle, warm the milk
up by placing in a cup of warm water. Test it to make sure it is not
too hot before giving it to your baby. If your baby is a few months old,
you can give chilled milk right out of the refrigerator. Some older
babies still prefer warm milk, so if your baby does, warm the milk up by
placing in a cup of warm water and then test it to make sure it is not
too hot before giving it to your baby.
- How do I thaw my frozen milk?
Place frozen milk in the refrigerator the night before you plan to use
it. Use this milk within 24 hours of thawing. You can heat breast milk
in a cup of warm water right before you plan to give it to your baby.
Never use hot or boiling water to warm up your milk. It can make the
milk too hot and burn your baby’s mouth and throat. Never microwave your
milk because microwaving can cause hot spots in the milk.
