How do you use silicone flange inserts

Silicone flange inserts, also known as breast pump flange cushions or breast shield cushions, are soft and flexible accessories designed to be used with breast pumps to improve comfort and fit during pumping sessions. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use silicone flange inserts:


Choose the Right Size: Make sure you have the correct size of silicone flange inserts that fit the flanges of your breast pump. Flange inserts come in various sizes to accommodate different breast shapes and nipple sizes.


Clean and Sterilize: Before first use and between each pumping session, ensure that the silicone flange inserts are clean and sterilized. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and sterilizing the inserts.


Positioning: Place the silicone flange insert inside the breast pump flange or breast shield. The insert should be centered within the flange, where your nipple will be positioned during pumping.


Inserting the Flange: Position the flange with the insert against your breast, making sure your nipple is centered within the insert's opening. The insert should provide a soft and comfortable barrier between the hard plastic of the flange and your skin.


Adjusting Suction: Start the breast pump with the suction set to a gentle level and gradually increase it to a comfortable setting. The silicone flange inserts should not impede the pump's suction or milk flow.


Pumping: During pumping, make sure the silicone flange inserts remain in place and that your nipple is centered within the opening. The inserts should provide a more comfortable experience by reducing friction and cushioning your breast.


Cleaning After Use: After each pumping session, remove the silicone flange inserts from the breast pump flanges and clean them according to the manufacturer's instructions. Most silicone flange inserts can be washed with warm, soapy water and air-dried.


Replace as Needed: Silicone flange inserts can wear out over time, so if you notice any tears, cracks, or signs of deterioration, it's time to replace them with new ones for continued comfort and effectiveness.


Using silicone flange inserts can greatly enhance comfort during pumping, especially if you have sensitive or tender nipples. They create a soft barrier between your skin and the pump's hard plastic flanges, reducing the risk of discomfort or irritation. If you have any specific questions about using silicone flange inserts with your breast pump, consult the product's user manual or reach out to the manufacturer for guidance.
