The right Breastshel

Express gently and efficiently

The size of breast shell is correct if the nipple moves freely in the funnel and it can follow the rhythmic movement of the pump.

The other thing, which indicates that it is correct, is that no, or very little of the areola is in the funnel. Besides, the milk should be flowed and the breast should uniformly soft after expression, which is another indication to judge this. If, on the inner side of the funnel, your nipple rubs uncomfortably, you should use a larger breast shell/ breast shell insert. If the areola is also sucked into the funnel, you can use a smaller breast shell. A soft shield such as the Ardo Optiflow, is recommended for sensitive nipples and for the stimulation of the milk ejection reflex. It makes expressing more comfortable plus it stimulates milk flow.
