How do I choose the correct flange size/ breastshield size for your pump?
The breast shield or flange is that plastic funnel that you place over your breast to express your milk with a breast pump. Everybody is different, and we have all different size breasts and nipples.
Most of the time, incorrectly sized flange can lead to soreness, blocked milk ducts, and impact milk production. When mothers experience an issue with breast pump suction, in many cases, it’s actually due to having the incorrect flange size.
