Medela Hands-Free Breast Shields x2 are a vital component of the Medela Freestyle™ Hands-Free system, making them an indispensable tool in the breastfeeding journey.

About

Medela Hands-Free Breast Shields x2 is an essential accessory for mothers using the Medela Freestyle™ Hands-Free system. These breast shields serve as additional components for the Medela hands-free collection cups. With maximum comfort and efficiency during pumping in mind, these breast shields are a crucial element in the breastfeeding journey. In particular, their design emphasizes ease of use and practicality, fitting seamlessly with the collection cups.

One of the key features of this product is its 105° opening angle. This specific design intentionally aims to reduce pressure on the breast, consequently contributing to a more comfortable pumping experience. This design feature not only enhances comfort but also supports effective milk expression. As a matter of fact, the broader lower half of the shield supports milk-making tissues effectively. This thoughtful design consideration helps in facilitating a smoother milk flow and can contribute to a more fulfilling pumping experience.

Safety for both mothers and babies is paramount. That said, these breast shields are made from food-grade plastic, without BPA, natural rubber latex, or phthalates, aligning with the highest safety standards. Also important, to align with best practices and maintain the highest standards of hygiene and performance, Medela suggests replacing the breast shields every 3 to 6 months, depending on the frequency of pumping. 

Characteristics
  • Good for: breast milk extraction, maximizing comfort during pumping;
  • Presentation: two hands-free breast shields;
  • Compatible with: Medela breast pumps featuring the hands-free collection cups (European models only).
How to use

Assemble Medela Hands-Free Breast Shields x2. Start by attaching the valve of the yellow membrane to the front of the breast shield. Position the yellow membrane's disc on the specified circular slot. Use the alignment tab at the top as a guide to ensure it is correctly placed. Firmly press along the edges to guarantee complete assembly. Next, fit the pouring spout into the opening on the shield. Finally, firmly press the outer shell and breast shield together, ensuring a tight seal around the entire edge. You should hear a snap indicating that it is fully assembled and secured.
