Pumpin' Pal Super Shields

Has anyone used the Pumpin' Pal Super Shields with success? I'm wondering if my shields are too small but the Ameda Purely Yours only has one size shield.

I don't care for them - didn't seem to get nearly as much milk as the medela flanges.

Re: Pumpin' Pal Super Shields

I absolutely love them and could not pump without them. I had severe nipple pain and it was negatively affecting my output. From the first day I got them, the pain subsided, but I did have a little dip in output, but within 3 days I was back to normal, and now I have increased by about 3 oz from my highest total before the pumpin pals. I went through 3 different sizes of medela flanges without any relief.

I love my pumpin' pals! I don't notice any output difference though. Do you ladies switch between different sizes like what's recommended? I tend to stay with just one size.

I loved them too. I mostly just stayed with one size although I did move down to a smaller one late in my pumping "career"/

Re: Pumpin' Pal Super Shields

The ameda purely yours does have different flange sizes available. I know this because I own a purely yours and had to size up. I bought them from a breastfeeding store here. I did some hunting and found them on amazon.com also.

Let me know if you can't find them, I am on my mobile and can't link but could pull them up for you later.

I have the three size set due to be delivered today! I REALLY hope they help with pain/soreness. I'll update again after I have a chance to use them.

They were much more comfortable to me than the medela ones but I got less milk so I stopped using them.
