The flanges attach to the breast pump and allow a woman to sit back in a more comfortable, natural position while pumping. Pumpin’ Pal’s shields eliminate milk duct constriction thereby preventing mastitis. Three sizes of flanges are included in each set so as a woman’s body changes, she gets the right size that fits best. For women who plan on returning to work shortly after having a baby, you don’t have to stop nursing. Pumpin’ Pal’s pumping accessories were made for mommas on-the-go.
