Why people love Milkdrop
Let customers speak for us
Expressing used to be such a chore. It was uncomfortable, time-consuming, and demoralising as I had low supply. After discovering Milkdrop cushions, I felt much more relaxed on the couch, never spilled anything from the flanges, and more milk came out faster too. Definitely recommend.
Milkdrop cushions have significantly reduced the discomfort (and dread) of pumping for me. I use them with the medela symphony and the freestyle and no longer dread pumping sessions. I did end up getting two sets - S and XS since there are some days when my nipples are a bit swollen and I need the smalls (still working out latching issues with my NB!). On top of having an amazing product, the customer service is excellent - they’re so helpful, attentive and detailed in their responses. I can’t wait to see what else they create!
As a new mum with an 8-week-old baby who won’t latch, I’m currently pumping 8 times a day trying to build give her as much breastmilk as I can with a low supply. I’ve tried all different types of flanges and settings and different pumps trying to get comfy but nothing has made as much difference as the Milkdrop cushions. They are now an essential part of my set up, and I love how easy they are to clean. The tin they came in is also super cute and perfect for keeping them protected when I have to pump out and about.
My only minor criticism is that is that I found that while they fit on the Medela PersonalFit flanges, I found they would fill with milk because of the curve and I found them less comfortable then - but using a standard flat flange (currently using a Maymom one) works perfectly.
Love the milk drop pump cover! It’s so soft and comfy and definitely a HUGE improvement on the flange that comes with the pump. No negative impact on the flow or anything to worry about. You won’t regret adding one of these to your kit!
I absolutely love my Milkdrop.
No more pain and I get the same amount of milk each time I pump.
The cushions are so soft and the packaging is so stylish.
The supportive team at Milkdrop helped me so much and a big shout out to Alex who is an absolute legend. I had some issues with the original (thicker) cushions and Alex called me to help troubleshoot. After much discussion she organised my refund and return postage paid packaging without delay or guilt. She kept in touch when the thinner cushions were available and they have worked for me. This kind of genuine customer service is rare. Thank you Alex.
I love that this company is based in Australia.
Postage was super fast.
Keep up the good work Alex and to all the team at Milkdrop.
Since starting to use the thin milkdrop with my Spectra pump, the nipple pain I was experiencing during pumping resolved and I am getting great milk volumes during most pumping sessions. I would definitely recommend to all women who pump milk.
Thanks for making these beautiful cushions, I've been expressing eight times a day since day one for my baby, being such a novice the flanges I had were the wrong size and did so much damage. Ouchy! These cushions have been heaven sent and have turned pumping into a much nicer more comfortable experience. Saved my nips! And my breastfeeding journey. So thankful!
I bought this product for a friend of mine. It is so beautifully packaged it was the perfect gift. Also the team at milk drop went over and above to ensure she could use it correctly and make sure the model was correct for her breasts and her model of breast pump.
The Milkdrop cushion is a super soft, silicone attachment that you put over the pump funnel. You then place it on your breast and get going! Very easy. I used to get pain and discomfort when pumping, but with Milkdrop it is completely different, so much more comfortable. I got just as much milk pumping with it, if not more because I could keep pumping longer as it was no longer painful. I will never pump without it now. I highly recommend this to anyone pumping, even just occasionally.
I've only just received this item and used it once (I was so excited to try it). Wow. Just amazing. I've never had a really bad experience pumping, but knowing that I've got at least 18 months of pumping milk while at work ahead of me I decided anything offering to make it more comfortable was worth a try. So worth it. I'm using mine with a medela harmony small shield. It has completely removed the dragging of the nipple through the shield and I could not be happier with this purchase. Great travel case as well.
Excellent invention! I found that for me this clever cushion eliminated those uncomfortable twinges at the start of pumping.
Milkdrop made pumping so much more comfortable, so comfortable in fact that I thought I didn't have it on properly! But I did, it was just such an improvement I couldn't believe it at first. With Milkdrop I managed to pump for several months after returning to work, which I don't think I would have managed otherwise.
This is my first baby, so I didn’t know of any alternative but when I look at the material my pump has for suction around the nipple I am genuinely scared to try without my milkdrop! The pump has hard plastic around the nipple area, the milkdrop is such comfortable soft gel-like cushion, I shall imagine the amount of trauma and discomfort this spares me. I utterly love it! Thank you milkdrop!!
I bought the cushions before my daughter was born, and I was so glad I did! Initially, I was only pumping once a day and thought the cushions were great then - but now I am having to pump after every feed, I can’t imagine doing it without them. Being a first time mum and pumping 5+ times a day, it can be really draining physically and mentally, but I am so glad I don’t have the added mental distress of a negative experience with pumping that I’ve heard a lot of other women share, and I put that down to the cushions.
These days, the only thing I don’t like about pumping is the time requirement, otherwise, the Milkdrop cushions allow me to sit back and just be amazed at what my body does without any pain or discomfort.
I highly recommend investing in these cushions *before* baby comes, so when you are navigating the intense post-partum world, painful pumping is not something you ever have to deal with.
I just tried your pump attachment and it has been the first time in 6 months that it hasn’t been painful or uncomfortable for me to express. I feel so much more respected having that lovely silicone close to my breast instead of that cold hard funnel.

Maybe you're wondering
Which size am I?
Take the cushion quiz to find the right cushions for your nipple and your pump.
Most people fit a S (16-20mm), but if your nipple is smaller (less than 15mm across) or larger (more than 21mm across), reach out to us on email@example.com and we’ll help you get the right size.
Remember to measure your nipple, NOT your flange or your areola, to find the right size cushion for you.
Find out how to measure your nipple here.
Will Milkdrop fit my pump?
Milkdrop XS, S and M fit any pump flange sizes.
If you don't have elastic nipples, then use the cushion on the standard flange your pump came with (usually 24mm).
If you do have elastic nipples, then you need to use it with a sizing insert or a smaller flange size to bring down the width of the pump tunnel to match your nipple.
If your pump flange is XL (30mm+), you will need Milkdrop L cushion. Please contact us for extra help with this.
Haven’t mentioned your pump? Oh no! DM us on instagram @milkdrop_pumps or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How many are there per packet?
There's just one cushion per packet. We do this because you might need a different size for each breast. If you want to order two, make sure to use the code at checkout for your discount.
How do I clean it?
Wash Milkdrop as you would any other breast pump part - with warm soapy water, rinse then air dry. Or pop in the dishwasher. You can also steam sterilise, sanitise or boil without degrading the silicone. We recommend following the FDA breast pump cleaning guidelines.
How long will it last?
We designed Milkdrop to last for 4-6 months, depending on how often you pump. Why? We want to avoid environmental waste, and save you from repurchasing replacements every few weeks, which gets expensive in the long-run. Silicone is recyclable, just not in your average, local recycling centre. When you’re finished, please send back to us, and we’ll include it in our batch recycling scheme.
Is it safe for my skin and my baby?
Milkdrop is made from the highest grade silicone, which is medical-grade silicone (not just food-grade silicone). It’s gentle on your skin, and your baby. Make sure you wash it after you use it, using the guidelines above.
Do you do returns?
Yep! Every woman is different. We have a 30-day risk-free trial period on your first set. If you are having trouble with the cushion for any reason, please contact us at email@example.com. We would like to understand more and may have some tips that will help, but we will also arrange a return and refund, hassle-free, on your first order. Please return the cushion washed and the packaging intact.
