Every woman is unique – one breastshield size does not fit all. For this reason, Medela offers five PersonalFit breast shields with different tunnel sizes to match your personal needs. Help to optimise your milk flow by choosing a correctly-fitting breast shield.
For effective pumping, combine PersonalFit breast shields with Medela breast pumps: Freestyle, Swing maxi, Swing, Harmony and Mini Electric.
The breastshield is the part of the pump collection kit that fits directly over your nipple and forms a seal around the areola. It’s very important that you have a correctly fitting breast shield, in terms of both comfort and how much milk you can express. The breastshield should tightly close around your nipple, while still leaving enough room for it to move back and forth.
There are a range of sizes because one size does not fit all and it is important to have the correct fit.
A correctly fitted breastshield avoids compression of any milk ducts during pumping to ensure optimal breast emptying and maximum milk output. This will help a mother to maintain her milk production and support her lactation.
