Hospitals and Lactation Consultants across the country are using PPI's Pumpin' Pal products to improve the breast pumping experience for new mothers. The angled Super Shields are especially effective for C-section mothers having a difficult time leaning forward to pump. The tapered design is less abrasive on the area around the nipple, so the flanges themselves are much more comfortable than the standard flange design.
Often, I will work with a mom who repeatedly develops a cut right around the base of the nipple. When this occurs, I feel that the pressure from a straight flange tends to be causing the problem. When you provide an angled shield, the pressure on the base of the nipple is resolved."
