Introducing our Liquid Shield Kit system, a complete shield kit compatible with lots of other brands that uses liquid silicone to deliver more comfortable pumping. Each kit contains one set of the Liquid Shield System - please add two kits to your cart if you're wanting to double pump.
The Liquid Shield system by Pumpables is different from traditional hard flange systems because it contains a soft interior insert, the Liquid insert. This is made out of lovely soft liquid silicone, and it works very differently from a traditional flange.
The Liquid insert moulds to the breast tissue, and provides a soft environment for the nipple to be drawn down. Because the Liquid insert is full-length, and extends all the way from the breast right past the nipple, there are no edges or friction, just a nice comfortable material of liquid silicone.
As the Liquid insert is flexible, when your breast pump applies suction the Liquid insert will actually collapse down around your nipple, which helps compress and massage the nipple. This mimics the way your baby's palate compresses the nipple when she is breastfeeding.
This listing is for one single pack of the full Liquid Kit. This means it includes:
- Liquid insert in your chosen size
- Breastshield assembly
- Breastshield cover
- Seal diaphragm
- Seal cap
- Bottle lid
- Bottle stand
- Neck adaptor (wide to narrow)
If you're wanting to double pump, please make sure you add 2 kits to your cart. It's fine to add different sizes.
This shield fits with wide neck bottles. If you're using narrow neck bottles, you can still use Liquid Kit with a wide to narrow bottle neck adaptor (or just buy some cheap wide neck bottles).
The Liquid Kit is a closed system, so you can use it with any pump (i.e. Spectra). You must use the entire Liquid Kit when pumping (you cannot use just the Liquid insert with breastshields from another range).
The Liquid Kit comes with a standard sized silicone tubing, but some pumps i.e. Medela need a connector attached to the end of the tubing in order to connect it to the pump. If you're using a pump that has a tubing connector between tubing and pump, you may not be able to use Liquid Kit.
Please measure your nipple diameter (no areola) using the measuring tool.
The best shield size will fit snugly around your nipple, with no areola. If your size is not available, please go up to the nearest available size. Liquid Kit is quite flexible and forgiving of a greater size range e.g. if you're usually a 15mm, then the 17mm Liquid should feel great, or if you're usually a 19mm, the 21mm will be fine and so on.
All Pumpables parts in contact with your milk are free from BPA, phthalates and other nasties.
Comfortable pumping session
A girlfriend of mine introduce me Pumpables and I'm loving very pumping session. Its very comfortable especially with the liquid insert.
I was getting frustrated after buying multiple flange sizes and inserts that all caused discomfort - I’m so glad I found this because there’s no pain and feels much more like feeding my baby!
I’m loving these so far. I was recently resized and these were on the list from a lactation consultant of possible flanges to get. I liked the idea of the liquid inserts that make pumping more comfortable. I do personally need to put nipple balm on before each use otherwise there is still friction but they do help me with my milk output and overall are quality flanges.
I have elastic nipples and have been looking for an alternative to hard flanges. This is it!! I’ve tried all the inserts but this was the answer. As an exclusive pumper, I was looking to make my nipples more comfortable. I exclusively use the liquor flanges now, and purchased the genie advanced as well so I could move about while pumping. My pumping journey is much better since the switch!!
