  • Pumping with wide neck bottles? You'll need this neck adaptor.

Our universal breastshield pack comes with 2 sets of a breastshield, valve and membrane to allow double pumping. These breastshields are a narrow neck, so they'll fit directly to narrow neck bottles (i.e. Medela) - if you're using wide neck bottles (i.e. Spectra's) then add the neck adaptor to your cart :) 

The Pumpables universal breastshield is an all-in-one breastshield that is compatible with most major brands of breast pumps. For full compatibility info, check the compatibility tab.

The all-in-one design means that the breastshield is in one piece - there is no separate flange (the funnel bit) and the entire breastshield screws directly to your bottle. This has the advantage of less pieces for cleaning and assembly, but does mean it's more expensive to replace parts if you need to change sizes.

The set includes:

  • Breastshields in your chosen size x 2
  • Valve heads x 2
  • Membranes x 2
  • Adaptors to connect to backflow protectors x 2

This shield fits with narrow neck bottle sets. If you are using wide neck bottles, you will need to purchase a neck adaptor.

Please note that backflow protectors or filters are not included, compatible backflow protectors are available separately on our site. This set includes shield adaptors so you can use your short stem backflow protectors.

Using the Pumpables universal breastshield

The back part of the shield is shaped to allow a tubing connector or a shield adaptor to plug directly into the shield. 

If you are using a breast pump with a backflow protector, then you will use the included Pumpables adaptor piece. Plug the adaptor piece into the back of the breast shield, then connect the backflow protector to the adaptor piece. You will connect your pump tubing on the other side of the backflow protector as usual.

We always recommend you use a backflow protector when pumping for optimum hygiene.

How to pick the right flange size

If you experience any kind of pain when pumping, the wrong size shield is often the culprit. Women are not one size fits all, and it's no different with breastshields! If you have no idea at all what size you are, then you can try to gauge the size by measuring your nipple circumference. Note - it is irrelevant what bra cup size you are - it is the width of your nipple when you are pumping that determines your flange size. 

Measuring your nipple

To measure your nipple, you need to measure straight across the widest part of the nipple (not including any areola). It's helpful to measure after pumping for 10-20 seconds.

If you're still not sure, head to our Fitting Room and get personalised assistance from one of the team. We have fit tens of thousands of pumping mamas with the right size breastshield!

The universal shield has been designed to fit as many breast pumps as possible. It will attach to any standard size tubing - just remove the tubing connector. 

The universal shield on its own is an open system and you must add a backflow protector to make it a closed system. 

A shield adaptor has been included in the box so you can use either the Spectra backflow protector or the Pumpables universal backflow protector. 

This shield fits with narrow neck bottle sets. If you are using wide neck bottles like Pumpables or Spectra bottles, you can use our narrow to wide neck adaptors.

If you are using a normal ruler to measure, once you have measured your nipple size, then round up to the closest mm, and that would be the best shield size to try. So if your nipple size measures just under 19mm, choose the 19mm shield size 😉.

If you are using the nipple ruler, the size to try would be the size stated on the hole that fits snugly. Your nipple should fit in the circle on the nipple ruler snugly, but without the circle squashing the nipple. Minimal space should be visible between the nipple and the edge of the circle on the ruler. You do not want areola entering into the circle - just nipple. Send us some pictures if you're not sure. 

All Pumpables parts in contact with your milk are free from BPA, phthalates and other nasties.

Questions

We know you have questions!

Here's some from other mamas

Ask Question
Hello, if you have different sized nipples can you buy two different sizes of the narrow neck breastshield in the double pack?

Unfortunately no. That's a great idea though, and we will look into it for the future.
