Medela Pump in Style and New Pump in Style Advanced Breast Pump Tubing - Pack of 2:Baby
Silicone tubing for all Medela original Pump in Style breastpump and for the Pump In Style Advanced breastpump sold after July 2006. PLEASE NOTE: Replacement tubes are shipped from Medela to authorized distributors in bulk packs of at least 5 pairs of tubes, not in individual retail packaging. They will be separated into a set of two by the distributor and sent to you as a pair. As with all replacement pump parts, even those sold in individual retail packaging, you will need to sterilize these tubes prior to their first use. After reading the reviews of this tubing, I thought I would add a few details that may be helpful. Before ordering tubing for your pump, you need to identify which type of pump you have. (Is it a Medela Pump In Style Original or a Pump In Style Advanced?) This particular tubing will fit all Original Pump In Style pumps (Original Pump In Style pumps cannot be removed from the carrying bag it comes in) and it will fit Pump In Style Advanced pumps that were manufactured AFTER July of 2006. If you have a Pump In Style Advanced pump manufactured BEFORE July of 2006, these are not the correct tubes. There is another page to order those from. (They are commonly called First Issue Pump In Style Advanced tubes) AT this time, none of Medela tubing comes in retail packaging. It is sent to the retailer in a giant ziploc bag and the seller divides them up and usually puts them in smaller bags of some sort to send to the customer. None of the tubing comes pre-sterlized so you might want to sterilize it yourself before using it. The silicone the tubes are made of tends to attract every piece of lint and anything else in it's general vicinity so even in the most careful re-packaging conditions you may find less than gleaming, shiny tubes but they should never have hair wrapped around them, as one reviewer complained! If you are unsure of which kind of pump you have or when it was manufactured, the customer service representatives at Medela are so friendly and should be able to help you identify it. The tubing works wonderfully if you get the type intended for the pump you have.
