Nipple Pain From Pumping?

    Nipple Pain From Pumping?

    Do any of you ladies experience nipple pain from using the pump? I tried lanolin, coconut oils, switching to bigger, smaller, flanges... any suggestions on how you cope? Surely this cannot be the status quo for all women to experience this discomfort right?

    Yes. I have. Usually this happens due to the size of the nipple did not match the size of the breast shield .

    This website helps me a lot in choosing my breastpump. It also has other useful tips.

    Just go to Moms2be/Moms tab.

    Hope it helps you as much as it did me.

    Btw, i am using the S2 Spectra now.

    I had a great deal of nipple pain until I finally got the right size breast shield as Sofia suggested. Something to keep in mind though, your nipples (at least mine did) will get thicker the more you breastfeed, so I had to change to a new size every few months. I currently use a 36mm shield but wish they had one more size up from that. A 36mm-40mm would be perfect.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
