Liquid Shield Kit
Contains the set of parts for one Liquid Shield
FSA / HSA funds accepted.
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.
Which shield size to choose?
Which shield size to choose?
To figure out your size, measure your nipple using our measuring tool.
The best shield size will fit snugly around your nipple, with no areola.
We know it can be confusing figuring out shield sizing, so we really recommend you get in touch if you need fitting help.
Tip most pumpers are using too large a shield, so have us help if you're not sure 💁.
This listing is for one single pack of the full Liquid Kit. This means it includes:
Liquid insert in your chosen size
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.
The HOLY GRAIL
I’m a bit of a pump collector and I have to say the super genie with liquid shield kits is the best thing since sliced bread!!! It has made pumping at work so comfortable, I look forward to my next pump session! The liquid inserts are little silicone clouds for your nips!! If you are on the fence, DO IT!
Aww, this makes our day! Thanks Chesnee so happy to hear!
Good but not perfect
I like the shield kit a lot. Pros: easy to put together, has slightly fewer pieces than a comparable Spectra flange. I find that when I am moving about the house during pumping, it is more robust and less likely to be knocked askew when pumping than competitors, and when the collection cups are full, the weight of the milk won't pull the flange off my breast. Cons: Some minor gripes here - the liquid seal caps come with a circular piece with a "Pumpables" logo on it that isn't fully sealed and therefore traps liquid during washing. This circular piece must be pried out of the seal cap (not hard) or I can only imagine it will eventually grow mold. Additionally, this flange style is advertised as being gentler than a hard plastic flange, but I find them pretty much indistinguishable. I also wish you were able to buy just the flange + collection cup (without the bottle stand, nipples, neck adapter, tubing, and shield cover) as I don't need all that extra stuff when I'm just buying a few more flanges to have for convenience, and it feels pretty wasteful. (When you price out by this a la carte in their store, it comes out to more that just buying the shield kit). Finally, I wish their were more information about the types and safety of plastic used in the online store. In sum, I like this a lot, I use it all the time, but like everything in life, it isn't perfect. Full disclosure, I wrote this review in exchange for a $10 store credit as advertised to me in an email I received after purchase.
Partly my fault
I was bummed to realize when this showed up that they aren't sold as a pair. My fault for not reading the description better! But as it turns out the tunnel is too short on these for my (elastic) anatomy so didn't work for me unfortunately.
If you're on the fence, just do it!
Definitely take advantage of their fitting room for sizing! These have changed pumping for me entirely, no much more comfortable!
I love this pump!
I use this pump 5-6 times a day, it is my preferred pump! I use it with a momcozy pumping/nursing bra and everything feels secure and steady as I pump. I bought a second set of liquid kits to make sure I always have a clean set, and no longer use my Medela pump at all. I will highly recommend this pump to all my friends in the future!
Very comfy but not so easy to clean
Very good experience except for the cleaning part. I got some water in the part where the valve goes and I can’t get it out. I wish the plastic flanges were less big to fit better in a pumping bra too.
Good comfort, a few issues
The listing is for ONE liquid shield flange. The word “Kit” might imply that you get two but you don’t. I did not read the full description so that’s my mistake. Overall, it has been good. The only issues I have is when using it with a pumping bra. It’s difficult getting it in the slots because it is silicone and does not slide easily compared to my plastic flanges. Also, the silicone flanges do not stay on when putting them on and off with a pumping bra and have to be adjusted and repositioned. Not a huge deal but definitely more steps than when using my regular plastic flanges.
Love, love, love.
Sizing seems off
I ordered my exact measurement and the liquid flange is too big and too short for electric nipples.
Hands Down the Best Pump!
I had already selected my pump I got through insurance when I found out about pumpables, and then I found out that this works with the spectra motor and it was a game changer. I've since bought a set for home and a set for work. I get way more output with this kit and its so much more comfortable to use!
