After you see breast milk flowing, use the long side of the handle to extract your milk.

Perfect on-the-go and for occasional use
Lighter, quieter and easier to use than electric pumps, Harmony™ is one of the best manual pumps thanks to the 2-Phase Expressiontechnology and the PersonalFit Flex™ breast shield.

How are manual breast pumps used?
