The milk doesn't go through the tubing. The tubing is there for air suction. Hope this helps.

The milk shouldn't back up into the tubing.

Milk does not flow through the tubing. The milk only flows through the the part attached to you; I think air flows through the tubing to suck the milk out but milk rarely gets in it.

Oh I'm so glad you asked this; I'm sure I would have had the same question!! I've mentioned it before but I can't even open my pump yet, just in case we have to return it if I don't make enough milk to pump or whatever. So I can't even familiarize myself with it, which is stressing me some. I guess I'll have to do that when she is here!
Thanks for all the answers ladies, as a ftm I am SO thankful at how willing you girls are to help us out!!
