The Elvie Pump app is available on all phones that support Bluetooth Low Energy (excluding Huawei). iPhones must be iPhone 5s and later and have iOS10 or above. Android phones must have version 6 or later.
Will Elvie Pump work with all cup sizes?
Elvie Pump has been designed to fit within a standard nursing bra and the cup size makes no difference to how Elvie Pump works.
If you are using a particularly structured and inflexible bra, the Bra Adjuster may be used to create more room.
Getting the right sized Breast Shield is key for comfort and performance. This is based on the size of your nipple only (not even the areola!). Each Elvie Pump comes with Breast Shields in two sizes (24mm and 28mm) and a size guide on the Breast Shields themselves so that you can find your best fit. We also have an additional, smaller size (21mm) sold separately, if needed.
What Breast Shield sizes are available and how will I know if they’ll fit?
Elvie Pump comes with a 24mm and 28mm breast shield (often called a flange), a pack of two 21mm breast shield is also available to purchase.
Elvie's Breast Shields are sized based on the width of the base of your nipple. You can measure the width of the base of your nipple with a ruler. The Breast Shield sizes are as follows:
- Base of nipple width between approximately 16mm and 18mm = 21mm breast shield
- Base of nipple width between approximately 18mm and 21mm = 24mm breast shield
- Base of nipple width between approximately 21mm and 25mm = 28mm breast shield
The size of your nipple may change over the course of your breastfeeding journey, so please keep the other Breast Shields that are included in the box in case you need them at a later date.
How do I know which Breast Shield size to use?
To determine the correct size, put the Breast Shield on with the sizing symbol facing upwards and place your nipple in the centre of the fit lines. The fit lines should align with the outside of your nipple.
Try different Breast Shields to find the best fit for you - a 24mm and a 28mm are provided with Elvie Pump and if you need a smaller size you can purchase a 21mm.
To comfortably pump on both sides, repeat this process for both nipples to ensure you have the correct Breast Shield for each nipple.
No two nipples point in the same direction so it's also really important to align the Breast Shield to the direction of your nipples when you are putting the breast pump on.
Lanolin cream can be used for lubrication to reduce the likelihood of sore nipples.
Keep the unused Breast Shields in a safe place. Women’s bodies often change during the pumping life cycle, so you may find that another Breast Shield size becomes a better fit.
What positions can I use Elvie Pump in?
Generally Elvie recommend sitting or standing because the milk monitoring function in the app will work better if you're upright. However, depending on factors like the amount of milk in the bottle and where the pump sits on your breast, you might find you have more flexibility.
Elvie have had testers unload dishwashers, change their babies and much more - so long as Elvie Pump is functioning properly you can use it in any position you like.
Do I need a special bra to use Elvie Pump?
Elvie Pump is designed to be worn with your standard nursing bra. Elvie Pump needs to be firmly pressed against your breast, there should be no gaps between Elvie Pump and your breast.
Each and every bra has a different level of support, so make sure to get the compression right before each session. If you are using a particularly structured and inflexible bra, the Bra Adjuster may be used to create more room.
How quiet is Elvie Pump?
Elvie Pump is quieter than any other breast pump and 96% of women agree that it's noiseless. It would be very difficult for you (or anyone else) to hear it while it is inside your bra.
Does Elvie Pump have disposable bags?
Elvie Pump doesn't have disposable bags. Instead, you pump directly into the reusable bottle then just place it into the fridge or freezer for storage when you're done, or decant it into a container if you prefer.
Is expressing with Elvie Pump comfortable?

What is the capacity of the bottles?

Can I use Elvie Pump without the app?

You will also be notified via the app whenever there is a firmware upgrade. Firmware upgrades improve the function of your Pump.

How and when do I clean and sterilize Elvie Pump?
The Hub contains electronics which should be kept dry. A clean, damp cloth can be used to clean the Hub. The black semicircle on the base of the Hub monitors milk volume. Please keep this area dry and clear of residue. Any other cleaning method will be classed as misuse under the warranty.
Cleaning washable components that come into contact with milk prevents the build up of dry milk residue, which can cause the growth of bacteria that may be harmful to you and your baby.
