Imagine the discomfort of walking around with ill-fitting shoes, the sores and hurting ache. Imagine pushing yourself into a rush-hour crowd, emerging bruised and beaten. Imagine your pain as you push your nipples into wrong-sized breast pump flanges!

An incorrect fit will cause sore nipples, blocked milk ducts and, worse, drop in milk production. Use this infographic to guide calculations for your exact flange size.
