    Question Breast Shields

    Advertisements
    Could the wrong size be the reason I'm not getting any milk while pumping? I've sat there for a loooooooooong time and didn't get a damn drop. How do you know what size to get?

    you need just the shield part that comes with the pump not any separate shields.

    Yeah but what I'm saying is there are different sizes....does the wrong size make that much of a difference as to where I'm not getting any milk at over 30 minutes of pumping?

    You must not be lached on. I do not believe there are different sizes. You need to make sure that it feels like the baby is sucking and then try squeezing your boobie! I did not have a lot of luck with cheaer pumps so I had to buy a Medela, no regrets though!

    There are different size shields for the Medala.

    OP, I was wondering if I should get different shields myself. I want the soft massage one
