Are you looking to take your pumping game to the next level? Introducing the new wearable Spectra CaraCups! This new easy-to-use wearable pumping technology has totally revolutionized traditional breast pumping, and here’s how.
Simple to Insert
The Spectra baby USA CaraCups are discreet and simple to slip inside your regular bra. Yep, you got it! No fancy pumping bra is needed. Instead, you can easily slide them into your bra, center your nipple and start pumping right away. Pumping moms need all the extra time they can get. The Spectra CaraCups allows you to save pumping time since you won’t need to put on a pumping bra and attach bottles.
Switch it up
The Spectra CaraCups hold up to 8oz in each cup and come with external flanges, which can also be used with the Spectra baby USA wide-necked bottles. The versatile new flat external flanges fit comfortably around the breast and can be used with or without the wearable cups.
Sit Back and Relax
No bottles are visible while pumping. No more torturing yourself watching bottles slowly fill up. This can be frustrating and even impact your milk supply! Have better letdowns and maximize your pumping sessions. You can even lie back on a chair or sofa when pumping and rest!
The Spectra CaraCups are compatible with the complete line of Spectra baby USA breast pumps. But truly the best part is the mobility! Combine it with our sleek portable 9Plus, and you’ll be unstoppable at multitasking. At home, you can easily pump while comforting a clingy toddler, whip up dinner or get active outdoors, all while expressing your liquid gold! At the office pump in meetings, with clients, or on breaks. It really doesn’t matter if you are pumping at home or in the office; the Spectra CaraCups will make all the difference in your pumping journey by allowing you to be more present with your baby, family, and coworkers.
The Spectra CaraCups are designed with Spectra Baby USA’s trusted closed system, always keeping milk clean and safe for your baby. Spectra CaraCups come in sizes 24/28mm and are compatible with most popular massagers and inserts on the market. Not sure what size to get? Find your perfect flange size here.
Parts should be thoroughly washed and air dried before assembly.
Duckbills should be at a slant; if not placed correctly, suction will be compromised. (Duckbills should be replaced every 6-8 weeks and are sold separately specific to CaraCups.)
Connect tubing first before inserting into bra, and tubing should come out from the top.
When done, turn off the pump. Remove tubing first, then carefully remove each cup.
Place cups on a flat surface to prevent milk from spilling.
Carefully disassemble and transfer your breast milk into Spectra baby USA collection containers or storage bags with the easy pour cup spout.
