although I have been pumping for about 4 months now at work, i just noticed this problem last week. After i pump and pull off the horns, my nipples look white. There is some pain, a feeling of soreness, when I pull of the horns.
I have tried the larger flanges but feel TOO much of breast is being pulled into the flange.
Will I cause tissue damage if I keep pumping and noticing the blanching? How do you know if a larger flange is for you? What are causes of blanching?
