"Huge improvement to my pumping experience.

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." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


"Wish I’d bought these sooner!

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." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

These are the best!

Every new mom MUST get these! I bought them for my daughter’s breastfeeding journey. She dreaded the pain from pumping until she tried these. So incredibly comfortable & a total game changer! She now pumps painlessly. We will recommend to every new mom!
Thank you!

The cushion is really soft. I wish this product existed when I was pumping!

I absolutely love Milkdrops cushions. I struggled so much with pumping due to pain and swelling no matter what flange size I tried. I dreaded each session before trying these. These cushions prevent your areolas from being sucked into the flange and the soft silicone isnt irritating whatsoever compared to hard plastic. Shipping was fast and customer service is exceptional. I would recommend these as a must-have to any pumping mom.

My wife has found these a lifesaver! We initially had the wrong size, and they change them with no issues or fuss. A fantastic experience.

Amazing customer service

These cushions were so soft and have such great potential, while they didn’t work for me (my fault), customer service was amazing - like so lovely, prompt and helpful, I would still highly recommend this product to others to try for themselves.

Huge improvement to my pumping experience

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!

The cushions feel amazing and soft on your skin - such a good idea!!! This is a definite upgrade to the pumping experience!

These cushions are such a genius product. So comfortable! They are lovely and soft, making pumping much more pleasant.
I highly recommend Milkdrop!

OMG I wished I had discovered earlier!

This product is simply amazing!! I wish I had known about it 10 weeks ago when my bubba was born. I had so much nipple pain from attempted to feed and hence had to take a break from breastfeeding. Then started pumping but I had too much pain then also so had to give up on that despite changing breast shield sizes a few times etc. Do yourself a favour and just buy them (best for small nipples) because you won't regret it!

MUST HAVE!!! Love love love!

I wish I’ve gotten this earlier. Saved my nippys from that uncomfortable suction. First time it feels like I may have not attached it properly as I felt nothing was getting sucked until I saw the amount of milk getting drained. I am shocked at how comfortable this insert is. Every pumper needs this now!

Game changer

I'm breast feeding one twin and feeding then expressing for the other who cannot latch. At the three month mark I didn't know if I could make it another week, I was sore from expressing and struggling to get out what I needed. As a last ditch attempt I bought the Milkdrop and have been using it for a month now. It makes expressing so much more comfortable and I am expressing more and more efficiently as a result.

Great product for breastfeeding moms

I bought this for my wife and she love this! It's very soft and comfortable to use.

Game changer

Thank you for making this amazing product!

As someone who has found expressing almost impossible due to the discomfort, which meant I wouldn't get a let down, this cushion has been a total game changer.

I'm using it multiple times a day, expressing successfully, and can barely feel the pump even on full strength!

I can't thank you enough for creating this product.

Amazing product and customer service!

I purchased two Milkdrop cushions to try with my pump and immediately saw a huge difference in comfort and pumping time! When I came across an issue with sizing, Milkdrop was super supportive, sending me two different sizes to try with free returns regardless of the outcome. Milkdrop cushions are definitely a must for a pumping mama! You've got nothing to lose supporting this great Australian innovation.

Soooo much more comfortable

I don’t have a particularly strong letdown, so it took a little while for it to kick in, but this made using my Medela pump SO much more comfortable! I compared one day of milk collection to the next and got about 50ml more from using the Milkdrop cushions during a pumping session at the same time on both days.

Super soft cushions and exceptional customer service

I found the Milkdrops extremely soft and comfortable but after experiencing reduced output with them, Alex went above and beyond to help me with troubleshooting. I experienced significant improvement after troubleshooting, but this wasn't enough for Alex, she then allowed me to try their new Milkdrops and they are even softer and more comfortable and I experienced even better output! Especially for my inverted nipple! I highly recommend giving these a try!

Makes such a difference to exclusive pumping!

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.

Super comfy!

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!

Love it!!!

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.

I'm absolutely amazed of how comfortable was to pump, I am always dreading a bit pumping time cause I HAVE TO do it all the time after nipple trauma which it only adds to the discomfort when pumping specially with my pump that doesn't have many different levels of suction and instead goes 0-100 instantly so when I was using this I didn't think it was going to be such difference! It's really almost like you don't realize your pumping. I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone that has discomfort when expressing and constantly rely on the pump to feed your little one.
