    I brought the Medela Swing Breastpump (even though I have Closer To Nature bottles, but after looking at reviews, it wasn't very good) But I assumed the standard 24mm Breastshield was quite small (My bad maths!) But it's huge! I haven't tried it out (I've not leaked the entire pregnancy, don't want to start now!) but it looks like too much as the areola would go inside it. And I don't want to spend £12-ish on different sizes each. So how do I know what size I need!? I'm 37+3 and I need to get it sorted out soon!

    Do you mean breastshield like the funnel that you put on whilst pumping or nipple shields?

    If so the funnel is 24mm the size of the opening?

    FWIW the Areola needs to go in just as when baby feeds it needs to go in babies mouth - they don't just feed off the nipple tip.

    I'd ask admin to move this post to the breastfeeding area too - it gets more traffic :)
