Medela Breast Pump Accessory Set – This set provides Medela breast pump users with a basic back up set of essential Medela breast pump accessories and is very useful to keep on hand, to save a hurried trip to the store. The set includes four baby bottles with lids, two valves and membranes as well as two extra breast shields and micro steam bags.

Medela Tender Care – Not all of the Medela breast pump accessories you might want to purchase relate to the mechanical operation of the breast pump itself. This is a relatively new Medela product offering – a special cream designed to provide relief for sore or tender nipples, a side effect of breast pumping that affects a great many women and is unpleasant and uncomfortable to say the least. The cream is a modified lanolin that also contains beta-glucan, a substance that has been shown to help wound healing and to soothe damaged skin. This formulation will not harm a mother’s milk supply though and it is also harmless for Baby.
Medela Quick Clean Micro-Steam Bags – Many moms love these easy to use cleaning bags so much that they continue to use them long after they have stopped using the breast pump. Designed to clean and sterilize all Medela breast pump accessories quickly and easily it is more efficient – and far quicker – than boiling them all and you can also use these handy bags to clean things like pacifiers and small teething toys so they are absolutely safe for Baby to put in their mouth!
