WHY CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHIELD SIZE IS IMPORTANT
Breast shields are sometimes also called flanges. While comfort is often the driving determinant in figuring out the right size, using the correct sized breast shield will also make your pumping more efficient.
Pumping can be hard enough on its own but having an unfitting shield may impact the amount of milk you are able to pump. It’s good to keep in mind that the right breast shield size may change over the course of your pumping and nursing journey, so it’s a good idea to check occasionally you are still using the right size. Or you might find that your breasts need different shield sizes – that’s normal too. Remember, pumping shouldn’t hurt.
Size + Fit
- 21mm: recommended if your nipple measures under 17mm in diameter
- 24mm: recommended if your nipple measures under 20mm in diameter
- 27mm: recommended if your nipple measures under 25mm in diameter
Since your breast shield size is also dependent on breast tissue + skin elasticity, it’s important to confirm you’ve chosen the correct size. Here’s how to check:
Using the 24mm breast shields included with your pump (sold separately) (or the size chosen after measuring your nipples), centre your nipple + gently hold the breast shield against your breast. (Note: pressing the shields too hard against your breasts when pumping can block your milk ducts.)
Adjust your breast pump’s vacuum through stimulation all the way up to a slightly uncomfortable vacuum, + then down one notch.
When your breast shield fits correctly, your nipple will be centred in the breast shield tunnel + will move freely during pumping.
