Any pumpers out there have/use a soft or silicone flange on their breast pump?
I don't really have any problem with mine (I use the standard "hard" flanges with the Medela Freestyle), but I have heard that some of the softer flanges can help stimulate for increased flow. Just curious if anyone uses them?
I talked to my lactation consultant about these. She said they can really help, but they only come in one size. For me it was too small, so I didn't buy them. If I still had a low supply after everything else, I was going to try it. Since my supply has gone up with other things, I didn't buy them. I'd love to hear if they worked for other people. My lactation consultant spoke wonders but also said she didn't know if it would work as well if the size was slightly too small so I didn't try it.
I used soft flanges with my first and remember them being better than the hard ones. I was looking Into getting them again this time but couldn't find them when I tried so I forgot all about it. Thanks for reminding me. I may end up looking for them again Karin!
