Did you know that the wrong pump flange size or nipple shield size can lesson or even decrease the amount of milk you pump or transfer?
It is so important to get the correct fit so that you are comfortable and you maximise each pumping or feeding session.
Most pumps come with a 24mm and 22mm size flange.. which often is simply to large.
As a IBCLC I find the majority of my clients are using the wrong size!
Did you know that a nipple can be a different size?- Yes sometimes you do need diiferent size for each breast.
Did you know you measure your nipple size after a pumping session?
Did you know pressing the flange to hard into your breasts can block a milk duct?
If the flange is to big your areola will be drawn up inside and pain…. OUCH!
