    I can see that, but they actually saved me from quitting, and I know there are alot of other moms out there that were going through the same thing I was, so I feel like I need to spread the word. I am pumping as I write this and I know I wouldn't be had I not found them. I just hope any of you that are experiencing nipple pain realize you don't need to.

    See, and they are NOT the cure-all.

    I have them. I worked them pretty hard, suffering from severe nipple pain. And they did NOT help. Not at all. And milk spilled everywhere, I had to lean forward even more, and I was even more sore. I ended up calling and getting my money back.

    Great if they work for you, but not a wonder product.

    I do find it odd that you joined over a year ago and just now started posting, and all your posts are about this product

    No, they don't work for everybody, just like the old style of flange. Everybody is shaped a little different, but from what I have read on my regular site forum where they are better known and more widely used, it seems they work for about 90% of moms. If you need to do compressions while you pump, they won't work as well as the shields that just suck on the nipple. The fact that they will even take them back if they don't work should tell you that they do work for most that try them. And let's face it, we pumping moms are a tough group to please.
