      TOP FAQs

      Milkdrop is at least 4x softer than other inserts, and 10x softer than your pump head. It's squishiness, and smaller nipple hole supports you where the most nipple swelling occurs, in the areola next to the nipple. The ridges on the back are designed to closer mimic a baby suckling, making pumping feel quite different to what you're used to. Milkdrop is made from medical-grade silicone (not just food-grade silicone), which is designed for placing against cracked or damaged nipples.

If you still find pumping painful or uncomfortable, you can try the thick cushion as part of our 30-day trial with free and friendly returns.

      Milkdrop comes in two styles: thick and thin. Milkdrop Thick works with Ameda, Avent, Spectra and Youha. Milkdrop Thin works with Ameda, Avent, Medela, Spectra, Youha as well as Ardo, Eonian, Minbie, Nuk, Pigeon and Tommee Tippee. They both fit any flange size except 30mm+.

      Milkdrop fits any flange size except for the extra large (typically 32mm+). It is particularly helpful if you suspect your current flange size is too large. 

      If you are double pumping, you will need two Milkdrop cushions. This is because you may need to increase the suction a few notches when they are on. We offer a 15% discount when you order two, automatically applied at checkout. If you order two, you will receive two complete units with full packaging; however we're working to reduce this (and waste) with a special double set, coming soon.

      Stretch the cushion onto your breast pump flange and hook the lip of the cushion over the edge. Make it nice and snug all the way around, and pump as you normally would. Don't worry about over-stretching it, Milkdrop is very flexi.

      Yes. The cushion is medical-grade, not just food-grade, and is designed to be gentle on your skin, even with cracked nipples. 

      Wash as you would any other breast pump part - with warm soapy water, rinse in drinking-quality water and air dry. It's also dishwasher, santiser and steriliser-safe.

      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.
