WHY DOES MY BREAST PUMP HAVE LOW OR NO SUCTION?
If you can feel suction from the air port at the side of the motor, then the problem may exist in the pump or accessories. If there is no suction at all, then the motor may be faulty and needs to be returned for servicing.
Breast pump is not assembled properly
Check whether the suction valve is installed, the membrane is sealed, and the valve is aligned toward you. If there is still no suction, the valve membrane is ageing and may need to be replaced
Why do I feel pain when I use the breast pump?
There are many reasons why you may experience pain while using the breast pump. Here are some common factors that may cause discomfort during expressing.
The suction on the pump may be too high so try rolling down the trackball for a lower suction strength.
Your nipples may be chapped due to breastfeeding. If this is the case, stop using the breast pump until you have started to make a slight recovery.
Breast Shield Sizes
The breast shield may be too big or too small. A breast shell that does not fit correctly can prevent efficient pumping and result in pain and sore nipples. It’s important to use the correct shell size.
The breast shell size is correct if:
– The nipple moves freely in the funnel and can follow the rhythmic movements of the pump
– No part or very little of the areola tissue is in the funnel
– The milk flows and the breast feels soft everywhere after pumping.
Eonian Care Breast Pumps all come with standard size 24mm breast shields. If you think the standard breast shield size does not fit you perfectly, you can find 2 larger sizes here and one smaller sizes here
Do I have to fully charge the battery before using the breast pump for the first time?
For the first three charge cycles, fully charge the battery overnight then allow it to fully drain before recharging. To achieve a true full charge, plug the breast pump into the mains and slowly charge the motor using the original cord. Do not use the device while charging the battery.
After three charging cycles, let the battery run down very low but do not allow it to fully discharge before recharging it again.
If you are planning to store your breast pump for longer than six months without use, charge it to 50% every six months.
What is the optimal environment for the breast pump battery?
The ideal comfort zone for your Eonian Breast Pump battery is a temperature range of 16°C to 22°C. It’s important to avoid exposing your breast pump to ambient temperatures that exceed 35°C as this can permanently damage the battery capacity. When used in very cold environments, a decrease in battery life is normal but temporary. Once the battery’s temperature returns to normal operating range, the battery’s performance will return to normal.
How long does the battery take to charge?
The battery may take up to three hours to fully charge. The battery indicator light will show when the breast pump is fully charged. It is important not to overcharge the breast pump after the first three charging cycle so once fully charged, unplug the beast pump from the mains.
How do I clean the breast pump kit?
Important: Clean all parts after each use. Ensure all parts are completely dry before re-assembling. Wash hands before touching breasts and components.
Before the First Use
Disassemble and wash all parts that come in contact with the breast or milk. Sanitise these components by boiling them or using a steriliser.
After Each Use
1. Disassemble and wash all parts that come in contact with the breast or milk in warm soapy water.
2. Rinse in warm water.
3. Air-dry on a clean towel or use the Eonian Care Steriliser and Dryer to sanitise and dry all the parts.
4. Cover all parts when not in use.
Important: To prolong the life of your Eonian Care Breast Pump parts and to eliminate the need to replace them often, it is best to avoid frequent sterilisation of the breast pump parts. All parts can be washed with warm soapy water and left to dry before re-assembling. There is no need to sterilise the silicone tubes and caps as they do not come in contact with the milk. Use a slightly damp cloth to wipe down the motor if necessary.
What do I do if the electric steriliser does not work anymore?
If your steriliser is not working, check the unit for damage. If there appears to be no damage check the electrical outlet to make sure it is live. If you are still experiencing issues, take it to your local stockist or contact the Eonian Care Customer Service Centre.
Please Note: The steriliser switches off automatically once the sterilising process is complete. The steriliser must cool down for approximately 10 minutes after the sterilising process before it can be switched on again.
HOW LONG DOES IS TAKE TO STERILISE, DRY, AND WARM BOTTLES?
The electric steriliser was designed with a 10-minute sterilising phase to ensure effective sterilisation. Drying time can take 30 to 50 minutes depending on equipment size and material. Bottle defrosting takes 10 to 20 minutes with an additional 10 minutes to warm up to 40℃.
Which bottles fit in the Eonian Care electric sterilisers?
All bottles, no matter what brand or type, will fit in the steam steriliser. You can even put breast milk pouches directly in the bottle warmer for defrosting/warming.
How should the bottles be positioned in my steriliser?
The aim is to ensure steam gets inside and around every bottle. Bottles may be stacked up but keep them upside down and ideally at an angle.
Should there be water left in the bottom of the steriliser after a cycle?
Yes. This is very common and can just be emptied out once the sterilising cycle is finished.
How much water should I use in my electric steriliser?
We recommend using exactly 130ml of filtered water in the steriliser, and 60-200ml of filtered water in the bottle warmer.
How can I clean the residue on the steriliser’s heating plate?
If you see white or brown spots on the heating element in the base, baskets or lid of your appliance or on your sterilised items this means scale has built up there. This is normal and can occur frequently in hard water areas. This residue can cause an unpleasant smell when the steriliser is heating up. To avoid this, clean all parts before sterilising.
To ensure your steriliser continues to work effectively it is recommended that you descale the steriliser.
How do I descale my steriliser?
1. Empty the steriliser and wipe the inside with a sponge or damp cloth.
2. Pour 80ml of white vinegar and 2oml of clean water into the heating base. Or you can purchase descale powder (citric acid) from your local shops.
3. Allow it in the unit until any lime scale has dissolved or follow the instructions on your descale product.
4. Drain and wipe dry. Leave the machine on a flat and dry surface for half an hour until all parts are completely dry.
We suggest descaling your steriliser every 1-2 weeks. If you live in a hard water area, you can do it more often if you notice limescale building up.
IS THE NAIL TRIMMER BATTERY POWERED?
Yes. One AA battery is required.
I can’t find the newborn file pad.
The newborn file pad is hidden under the battery cover at the back of the nail trimmer.
How do I install the file pad?
The file pad can be easily removed to switch to other files. To install, push the file pad into the spinning pin. The file pad doesn’t need to be inserted all the way in. As long as the cushioned pad sits securely in place it is ready to use.
How big is the cooler bag?
The cooler bag can hold up to six Eonian Care Magic Cups and the Eonian Care Breast Pump at the same time.
Why does the lining near the corner of the bag get stuck in the zip?
The inside lining of the bag is designed to be a bit longer to ensure maximum insulation. Often it can get stuck in the zip. To untangle the zip from the lining, follow the instructions below.
1. Gently pull out the lining that is stuck in the zip. Wiggle the zip to unzip the cooler bag.
2. Push back the lining to the other side.
3. Apply some lip balm or bar soap along the zip.
4. Pull out the zip while zipping/unzipping the bag.
With frequent use, the zip will start to move along smoothly.
