Introducing our Liquid Shield Kit system, a complete shield kit compatible with lots of other brands that uses liquid silicone to deliver more comfortable pumping. Each kit contains one set of the Liquid Shield System - please add two kits to your cart if you're wanting to double pump.
The Liquid Shield system by Pumpables is different from traditional hard flange systems because it contains a soft interior insert, the Liquid insert. This is made out of lovely soft liquid silicone, and it works very differently from a traditional flange.
The Liquid insert moulds to the breast tissue, and provides a soft environment for the nipple to be drawn down. Because the Liquid insert is full-length, and extends all the way from the breast right past the nipple, there are no edges or friction, just a nice comfortable material of liquid silicone.
As the Liquid insert is flexible, when your breast pump applies suction the Liquid insert will actually collapse down around your nipple, which helps compress and massage the nipple. This mimics the way your baby's palate compresses the nipple when she is breastfeeding.
This listing is for one single pack of the full Liquid Kit. This means it includes:
- Liquid insert in your chosen size
- Breastshield assembly
- Breastshield cover
- Seal diaphragm
- Seal cap
- Bottle lid
- Bottle stand
- Neck adaptor (wide to narrow)
If you're wanting to double pump, please make sure you add 2 kits to your cart. It's fine to add different sizes.
This shield fits with wide neck bottles. If you're using narrow neck bottles, you can still use Liquid Kit with a wide to narrow bottle neck adaptor (or just buy some cheap wide neck bottles).
The Liquid Kit is a closed system, so you can use it with any pump (i.e. Spectra). You must use the entire Liquid Kit when pumping (you cannot use just the Liquid insert with breastshields from another range).
The Liquid Kit comes with a standard sized silicone tubing, but some pumps i.e. Medela need a connector attached to the end of the tubing in order to connect it to the pump. If you're using a pump that has a tubing connector between tubing and pump, you may not be able to use Liquid Kit.
Please measure your nipple diameter (no areola) using the measuring tool.
The best shield size will fit snugly around your nipple, with no areola. If your size is not available, please go up to the nearest available size. Liquid Kit is quite flexible and forgiving of a greater size range e.g. if you're usually a 15mm, then the 17mm Liquid should feel great, or if you're usually a 19mm, the 21mm will be fine and so on.
All Pumpables parts in contact with your milk are free from BPA, phthalates and other nasties.

Much more comfortable pumping!
I absolutely love using this kit with my Spectra S1. It gives me so much comfort, no more sore nipples and I get a more output than the regular flanges. So worth it.
Overall, this is a great concept and I'm glad I at least tried it. Unfortunately, the flange is too big and the next size down is way too small so these did not work well at all for me. The description says that if you are a19mm that the 21mm liquid shield would work, this is not the case. I tried multiple times and never was able to empty my breastd. Always had to switch to my original system to finish pumping. When breastfeeding is all about supply and demand, you need equipment (if you are pumping) that works in your favor. Bottom line, if you size is not listed, I would skip this product
