keep getting milk in tubing
I have a Medela Symphony at home and I keep getting milk in the tubing. On a daily basis. It never happens when I use the Symphony the NICU provides, but I'm also sitting in a different position usually there. At home I tend to move around a lot while pumping (turning to talk to DS, adjusting my legs, etc). How can I prevent this from happening?? Thanks!

Whenever I get milk in the tubing its usually because the white valve is getting stuck. Try replacing it.

Re: keep getting milk in tubing
Are you leaning forward when pumping instead of sitting up straight?

Re: keep getting milk in tubing
I've had the same problem lately too. I use the Medela PIS and realized I was sitting forward too much. Whoops!
