The customer service is amazing and the product does the job, however the connectors are such a tight squeeze into my medela tubing that I need my husband to do it most of the time. An option to buy single shields would be handy. Also as someone with large breast I really struggle to compress my breast tissue enough to get my nipple into the tunnel so a flatter shield would be amazing! Overall though I would definitely recommend pumpables!
Have got 3 of the universal pump sets interchangebly for my pumping sessions, loving my pumping journey each day due to Pumpables. It gets my milk out so efficiently and am so glad I found Pumpables. And loving the fact that it can be used with either narrow or wide neck bottles!
Awesome to be able to find universal shields that fit my spectra and fit me perfectly! Great value and fast shipping too!
Spectra didn’t have small shields so it was great to find some small enough. The measuring service was also amazing to make sure I had chosen the correct size.
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.
