Breast Pump- milk in tubing

My daughter is 2 weeks old, and I am pumping after every feeding to increase my milk supply.

I have the Medela In Style pump, and just about every time I pump I get milk in the tubing. I know how to clean it- there are instructions in the manual- my question is- Why is this happening? From what I have read it's not common for milk to get in the tubing, so what am I doing wrong? Does anyone else have this problem? What should I do?

Thanks
Kerry
