Help! I've just sat down to do my daily pumping session and the milk is not dropping into the bottle but instead shooting up the transparent tube that leads from the top of the pump to the electric unit. I've turned it off and the milk has now fallen from the tube into the bottle but I think it will shortly make its way up to the electric parts so I can't pump with it like that. Is it totally beyond repair now? This is my last baby and she's nearly 3 months old so I don't think I can justify the expense of a new one .
Let it dry out a bit and clean the tubes. Open and close the bit where it falls down into the bottle (sorry don't know technical term!) and it rights itself. Think it is just when that bit fails to open and the milk has nowhere else to go but back upwards and into the tube. Worst case you can buy new parts from boots etc rather getting a whole new pump. Good luck!
