Milkbar Maternity & Breastfeeding
Milkbar Advanced Flow Suction Kit
Sizing is important when it comes to comfort and effectiveness during pumping. While we try to provide the most 'common' sizes with the breast pumps, sometimes a different size is required.
Signs you might need a larger size:
- You are unable to centre your nipple i.e have it inside the tunnel without it touching the sides
- You feel your nipple is uncomfortable and rubbing against the side of the nipple tunnel during pumping
- Your nipple is unable to move freely with the pumping motion
- Your nipple is being strongly compressed by the 3 phase motion to a feeling of discomfort or pinching
Signs you might need a smaller size:
- An excessive amount of your areola is being drawn into the nipple tunnel
- You experience a painful tugging feeling
- Your nipple is reaching the end of the nipple tunnel while pumping
- You can hear air moving or 'sucking' inside the nipple tunnel
- You are not experiencing compression of the nipple with the 3 phase motion
15mm diameter base of nipple, add 4-6mm, nearest = 21mm
20mm diameter base of nipple, add 4-6mm, nearest = 25mm
23mm diameter base of nipple, add 4-6mm, nearest = 29mm
Our Milkbar Suction Kits are compatible with Milkbar Advanced Flow Breast Pumps. The kit is sold together and includes:
- 1 x Dust Cover
- 1 x Silicone Cushion
- 1 x Plastic Brace
- 1 x Diaphragm
- 1 x Breast Pump Body
- 1 x Cap and Plug
- 1 x Valve Body
- 1 x Valve Membrane (unless duckbill design)
Please note, the 21mm, 25mm and 29mm sizes are the all in one 'duckbill' design and do not require a valve/membrane so replacements are not required.
The 22mm is the original size that is included with the Single Breast Pump. The design varies slightly in design with a traditional valve and membrane.
Please see our sizing chart below. Generally our clothing is true to size and we recommend that you choose your usual size in our pieces. Specific fit notes will be in the description for each piece. If you have any questions at all regarding the sizing of a style, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
