In each reusable box: 1 x sealed cushion, 1 x food-grade reusable storage case, instruction card.
Milkdrop comes in two shapes: thick and thin. We recommend starting with the thin cushion. If you are still having pain or discomfort contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a thick cushion to try as part of our 30-day trial. Pumping can be fiddly to get right, so we offer free and friendly returns to give you time to try the cushion to see if it works well for you.
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.

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.

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.
