Re: Anyone use small breast sheilds?

I am thinking that I need the small ones too. I haven't found a place to buy them locally, but have seen them online. {though today I was sent some links to bfing support locally and they may have them}. I am thinking of ordering them this weekend once we know for sure that we have the house. {I want to make sure they go to the new address so that I can get them ASAP}.

Let me know when/if you got/get them and what you think about how they fit, etc. I am using the Medela Symphony Pump I rented from the hospital. The LC wasn't even there when I got it and she didn't even check anything when I used it in the hospital so I had NO idea that there were different sizes.

I got a pair from my lc and I really like them. My nips don't feel as pulled after i pump. I was pumping at work for the last couple of weeks and by the end of the day they felt bruised and sore...We'll see how these work for all day tomorrow- I'll let you know. It's definitely a better fit...now I just gotta get a couple more!

Thanks for letting me know how they are working for you! I am having the exact same feeling of being brusied and sore. It has been 5 weeks and I am so sick of exclusively pumping because of the soreness and it seems to only be getting worse. I am also having issues with milk supply, so I am hoping it is because of the bad fit and once the new ones come then things will be better.

I have a pair that I used for my Medela pump - only used a few times - you can buy if they will work for you, interested?
