    Default PumpinPals

    If you are thinking of trying them, there's a Super Bowl sale on for the complete set right now, 10% off at the website. I found it via Google. Sounds like the sale might be just today.

    Looks like angled breastshield flanges so you can lean back and pump?

    Yeah, supposedly they make sitting comfortably and pumping more comfortable. I got a set to try...anything to make the implosion of my life a little easier, kwim.

    I have a set of these and my opinion is that they are more comfortable, but not as comfortable as investing in a handsfree bustier. I spent 30ish bucks on the kit for the flanges and the strap but I had a hard time getting it work properly. Their customer service is great and they tried to help me out and it worked a little bit but if I moved the wrong way or I bumped it I would have spillage. I bought the Simple Wishes bustier and it's really comfortable and I enjoy it. Good Luck!

    I'm planning to try them with the SW hands free bra because I really need to maximize output that I can get hands free. I'm usually feeding the baby at the same time I pump (I hate that....feeding time should be cuddle time), and I really don't let down well to a pump and end up using compressions to get it all out. Maybe these will help. I dunno
