Spectra duck valve
Your Spectra breast pump will more than likely have shipped with white silicone duck valves. This style of Spectra breast pump valve is becoming more popular as mamas are finding the one-piece duck valve is easier to clean and lasts a bit longer. You can expect your duck valves to last up to 2-3 months. These are becoming more standard in the industry as other breast pump companies are starting to do as Spectra does by including silicone duck valves.
Spectra valve and membrane set
Some mums prefer the Spectra breast pump valve and membrane sets. We continue to sell this older valve style because some mamas find these easier to clean. If you're used to the Medela style breastshield sets, you might prefer the Spectra breast pump valve and membrane set as it is nearly identical. The Spectra Dew 350 still ships with the blue valve and membrane set. If you're pumping frequently you might find this style more sustainable as the blue valve head is made of recyclable plastic, and you can replace just the Spectra silicone valve membrane. You can expect your Spectra breast pump valve and membrane set to last up to 8 weeks of regular use.
