So I m expressing to top my lazy boy up after he feeds and stimulate more milk. Trouble is I have rather large boobies (36k) and with them rather large nipples. One is slightly bigger than the other. I can just about fit the pump on my left side but its making nipple and base of nipple sore and i have no chance on other side.
I ve hand expressed but cant manage to hold boob, express and catch it.
In the US there is a company that makes universal graduated flanges, I love mine! It is called pumpin pal (web site is the same) I am not sure if they are international at all but u could contact them to find out. It doesn't have that ridge in it that most flanges do and is more curved, KWIM? I hope u find a solution!
Definitely worth contacting the above manufacturer suggested by the previous poster and also maybe contact TommeeTippee directly. Not sure about TT, but think Medela make a range of different-sized funnels. Hope you're able to source one.
I know won't help in the long run, but in the mean time until you find a larger flange have you tried using lansinoh as a bit of lubricant to stop the chaffing/hitting pain you are getting on the breast you can fit in there?
