are your flanges correctly sized?


What is worse than clothing being too small or too big?! Ill fitting breast pump flange/shields!!!! Amiright, honey?! ⠀

At some point, whether you’re exclusively pumping or it’s just time to share the feeding duties, parents will have to pump. And the correct flange or shield size is key to effective milk removal from the breast.⠀


A breast pump flange or breast shield, is the plastic piece that fits over your nipple to form a seal around the areola. This creates a powerful suction which pulls milk from the nipple into the funnel for milk extraction.⠀


If you do not have the right flange size it can cause, sore or damaged nipples, decrease in your milk supply, plugged ducts, engorgement or worse mastitis.⠀
