For me, the SuperGenie is a winner. The programming feature is user-friendly. Liquid shields are super comfy - though takes some effort to clean and assemble. Special shout out to the Pumpables team - they’ve been super responsive and helpful with my various questions! The tubing could be improved though. It’s not easy to connect and makes switching between single to double pumping a pain! Haven’t single pumped with my SuperGenie for this reason.. Also wish the SuperGenie app could be improved - eg. so that you can interchange between app and manual control, track pump sessions (timing, output) etc.
Trying nipple stimulation with my new pumpables almost 40 weeks with second baby. Very comfortable and easy to use compared to my old pump that I hated so much! I also had postpartum anxiety with my first and my milk supply suffered. Hoping this time around is better, I’m more prepared, have the proper support and treatment team to be more successful with pumping this time
I ordered the pump a little over a week ago. It did only take about week for the pump to get here. I was so excited when it arrived.. but they somehow forgot ALL of the pump parts and accessories I ordered. I don’t see how you could put a pump in the box and absolutely NO ACCESSORIES.. I asked Pumpables they told me they’d send it out with “the fastest shipping” yet it’s gonna take the same amount of time it did for my pump to get here for it to get here. So that’s a bit ridiculous.. overall I can’t rate the pump itself as I can’t use it yet but customer service has lied to me about it would be sent with the fastest shipping which it definitely is not being sent at. I don’t think I will order from them again due to this awful stressful experience....
Using the correct sized breastshield is really important to have the most comfortable pumping experience. We are all different shapes and sizes, and it can be really hard to know which breastshield size you will be when you start pumping.
A baby's mouth compresses a nipple evenly all over the nipple and areola, whereas a breastshield flange is rigid. As a result, if your flange is too large, the areola will 'bunch' up into the flange, which can cause pain and nipple trauma. You want the flange to be just wide enough to fit the base of your nipple, preventing the areola from being able to get pulled into the flange.
Using our nipple ruler is a good place to start.
If you've used the ruler and you're still not sure, we're happy to help with another opinion. If you'd like us to give you feedback, please take a photo of your nipple through each size so we can compare how each fits. You can send your pics through the 'chat' function at bottom right of the page.
For extra help, send a video of your nipple in the flange while you're pumping through our Fitting Room.
