How do I determine my nipple size for the correct breast shield size?

How do I determine my nipple size for the correct breast shield size?

It is important to choose the right size breast shield when purchasing a Youha breast pump. An incorrect size can cause less comfort, less breast milk and a reduced let-down reflex. Correct size is essential. You can determine the correct size by measuring your nipple.

To measure your nipple size, follow these steps:

  1. Preparation : Make sure your hands and nipples are clean and dry before you start.

  2. Measuring instrument : There are special Youha nipple gauges . But you can also use a measuring tape to measure your nipple size.

  3. Diameter : Gently place the measuring tape against your nipple (not the areola).

  4. Measurement : Read the measuring tape to measure the diameter of the nipple. Record this measurement in millimeters.

  5. Repeat for the other nipple : Because nipple sizes can sometimes differ, repeat the same steps to measure the diameter of your other nipple.

  6. Record the measurements : Record the measured diameters of both.

  7. The calculation: Now add 2 to 3 mm to the measured millimeters. That's your size Youha breast shield. As an example: you measure 18 mm + 2/3 mm = 21 mm. In this example the correct size is 21 mm.

  8. Choose breast shields : Look at the size indications of breast shields for the Youha breast pump you use or plan to use. Choose the breast shield or reducer size for your Youha product.

It is important to try to find breast shields that are comfortable and well-fitting for your nipple size, as this can contribute to an effective and comfortable pumping experience.

If you have any questions or concerns about measuring your nipple size, please do not hesitate to contact a lactation consultant or healthcare provider who specializes in breastfeeding, see our partners . They can guide you and give you advice about the right size breast shields for you.

    Bedankt Youha, het heeft mij geholpen. Het blijft uiteraard passen en meten, maar het voelt voor mij zeer prettig om te kolven met de juiste maat borstschild.
