BabyWombWorld, the brand behind an award-winning double electric breast pump, has recently published an article discussing the importance of breast pump flanges.
Miami, FL, Jul 05, 2019 /prREACH/ -- Surveys show that a large percentage of today's mothers are turning to breastfeeding because of an increasing awareness about its benefits. Many of them use electric breast pumps to ensure that they can breastfeed their newborn over a long period of time. Experienced manufacturer of an award-winning double electric breast pump, BabyWombWorld, has recently revealed in an insightful article that an ill-fitting breast pump flange can make breastfeeding extremely difficult for mothers. In its publication, the company has shared the importance of using breast pumps with different flange sizes.
According to BabyWombWorld, breast pump flange--or a breast shield--is a component of breast pumps electric that fits directly over the nipple to form a seal around the areola. The function of this flange is to draw the nipple into the funnel for easy milk extraction. The company states that most mothers do not take this important aspect of breastfeeding into consideration when choosing their breast pumps.
"Making sure you have the correct flange size can make a huge difference in your breastfeeding journey. So make sure you choose a pump that can support you as a mom with various flange sizes, "says Christine Klynhans, a lactation consultant and spokesperson for BabyWombWorld.
BabyWombWorld's article advises mothers to check if a particular product has different flange sizes available, as the nipple size tends to change over time. In general, it recommends choosing a flange size slightly larger (about 0.08″ to 0.15″) than the nipple diameter. The article thoroughly explains the techniques to measure nipple size.
In its overview, the company outlines several signs of using an ill-fitting flange. Breastfeeding moms in need of help may refer to BabyWombWorld's information brochure, which explains in detail how to choose the correct flange size.
