Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump in action

Mums love using the Haakaa to:

1. Relieve engorgement, particularly when milk is first coming in and supply is being established

2. As a catcher/collector to save breastmilk that would otherwise be lost in a nursing pad

3. To create their first stash of expressed breastmilk with minimal fuss

4. As a breast pump while simultaneously breastfeeding 

5. Pumping mums to help support supply while also using an electric breast pump

The Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump is made from 100% food-grade silicone, making it a more eco-friendly and safe option that won't leak plastic microparticles into your breastmilk. It fits perfectly into any handbag or baby bag and is the perfect gift for a mum to be.

The Haakaa Silicone Pump is available in two sizes: 100ml and 150ml. Popular accessories such as the Haakaa CapFlower Stopper and Pump Strap are available separately. We stock the largest range of Haakaa Breast Pumps. Check out the full range here.

How does the Haakaa work?

The Haakaa works by creating gentle suction on your breast. Most of our pumping mums use the Haakaa as a milk catcher or collector while simultaneously breastfeeding their baby on the opposite breast. This assists with achieving a letdown and saves time! This breastmilk would otherwise have been lost in a breast pad.

The traditional constant pumping action required for manual/ non-electrical pumps isn't necessary with the Haakaa although our customers have found a squeeze every now and then can help to produce a letdown. If you have a hand free gently massage your breast or apply a warm compress to improve your milk flow.

How to Use Your Haakaa Breast Pump?

1. Sterilise your pump or wash it in warm soapy water (no bleaching agents)

2. Suction the Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump to your breast and let the pump do the work for you as it draws your milk using suction.

There are two ways to apply your Haakaa Breast Pump:

  • Simply align the Haakaa so that your nipple is in the centre. Press the pump into the breast so that there is suction and you are ready to go!
  • Fold back the silicone breast shield. Once your nipple is aligned in the centre, press the pump into the breast and fold back the pump shield so that it is in contact with your breast.

Yes, it really is that simple!

If any pain is felt, remove the pump until you feel comfortable.

3. Once milk begins to flow simply leave the pump alone to do its thing.

4. Once the pump becomes full empty it into a glass storage bottle and reposition it.

5. If the pump is full or you wish to stop pumping – simply suction the suction base to the table next to you while you finish your feed or re dress and the pump is 100% secure. Store as required.

    What Size Should I Choose?

    The Haakaa Silicone Pump is available in either 100ml or 150ml.

    The 150ml size is the most popular version as most mums choose to pump while feeding their baby in a traditional cradle (across the body) position. As the 150ml is slightly longer it is more forgiving when on an angle so that milk doesn't travel up into the neck of the pump (and result in a wet boob).

    Other mums prefer the smaller and slightly lighter 100ml version, so it really comes down to personal preference.

    Milkbar Tips

    • Use the Haakaa while breastfeeding your baby to help achieve a letdown
    • While constant squeezing (like traditional manual pumps) isn't required, a couple of squeezes at the start can help to trigger a letdown.
    • Heat and gently massaging your breast towards the nipple can help with let down and drainage of the breast.

    Other FAQs

    How long do you leave the Haakaa on?

    You can leave your Haakaa on for the duration of a feed or as long as it’s comfortable and still catching milk. Many mums find around 5-10 minutes ideal. In general, if you are looking to build your supply more frequent sessions are recommended rather than increasing expressing times.

    What is the difference between a Haakaa and a pump?

    A Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump works as both a manual breast pump and milk collector. Its primary difference from a manual breast pump is that it can be attached and then used hands-free without the manually pumping action of a manual breast pump. The Haakaa’s gentle suction will draw out milk to be used or stored.

    Does the Haakaa empty the breast?

    The Haakaa can be used to effectively drain the breast but the extent of emptying will depend on a number of factors including milk supply, time of use, the age of your baby and how often the Haakaa is being used. Like with any pump, it’s important to assess your breasts before, during and after a feed to ensure they’ve been properly emptied and are comfortable.

    Should I use the Haakaa for every feeding?

    It’s entirely up to you! Some women want or need to collect a larger amount of milk and will use the Haakaa numerous times across the day, while others may use it less regularly.

    What should I do with the milk collected in the Haakaa?

    The milk collected in your Haakaa can be used for a variety of purposes including feeding bub, adding to solids, storing for later use or even donating.

    Is the Haakaa hands-free?

    Yes! Once attached the Haakaa does not need to be held in place and stays attached using gentle suction. Some mums find it more comfortable to use a pumping bra or hold the pump in place.

    Do I need to sterilise the Haakaa after every use?

    You do not need to sterilise after every use. We recommend simply washing it in warm, soapy water and leaving it to air dry.

    Love it!!

    So much more comfortable than the expensive electric pump I bought, plus it’s more portable, expresses more than the pump does in the same amount of time and is easier to clean because it doesn’t have to be pulled into fifty different tiny parts!

    I’ll be ordering another one so I can express on both sides at once! Game changer!

    Outstanding product

    A friend mentioned she has one of these and I didn't believe her when she said she catches up to 40ml of milk during her let down. So I thought I would try it for myself and I too can capture up to 50ml whilst feeding my bub on the opposite breast. 😊
