What is a Breast Pump Flange?

A breast pump flange is a crucial component that directly interfaces with your body during pumping sessions. Functioning as a funnel-like structure, it forms a secure seal around the breast and nipple, establishing the necessary vacuum for milk extraction. As the flange draws the nipple into the pump’s tunnel, milk is efficiently extracted.

Selecting the correct size of flange is paramount for both comfort and milk output. A properly fitted flange ensures optimal pumping efficiency while minimizing discomfort during and after pumping sessions. Therefore, accurately measuring your nipple size is essential to enhance both your pumping experience and milk yield.
