Mommy Matters is happy to be the authorized reseller for Pumpin' Pal Accessories in the Philippines. Now, pumping moms based in the Philippines can experience the comfort and productivity that these accessories has been giving moms in North America.
Pumpin' Pal International (PPI) is dedicated to improving the breast pumping experience by making it as comfortable and productive as possible with Pumpin' Pal accessories for pumping moms. The reality for today's mom is that pumping plays a major role in nursing. Our theory is that if our products can make the process of breast pumping more enjoyable, mothers will breast feed much longer, benefiting both mother and baby.
With the combination of the Pumpin' Pal angled breast shields, "Super Shields", and the Pumpin' Pal "Original Handsfree Strap", breast pumping has never been more comfortable. Mothers can avoid having to 'lean forward' and can now sit back in a comfortable position, relaxing their arms rather than holding bottles.
Breast milk is the best gift a mother can give to her baby. Breast pumping can be confusing and awkward in the beginning - PPI and Mommy Matters are here to help.
Pumpin' Pal Super Shields are a revolution in breast pumping comfort. Most mothers need to lean forward in order for the milk to flow freely into the bottle using standard flanges. Our angled flange allows most moms to sit back comfortably. Super Shields are Bisphenol A (BPA) free and now available in three sizes : medium, large, and x-large.
Other healthful benefits:
* Eliminates constriction of milk ducts caused by traditional flanges
* Mimicks baby's suckling, hence promoting better milk flow
* Reduces irritation to the nipple area
* Considerably more comfortable than traditional flanges
* Especially effective for new mums and C-section mums
* Aids in the prevention of mastitis and other breast infections caused by
* Use with the Original Handsfree strap for ultimate breastpumping comfort
* Now available in three sizes!

"Hi Candice! Pumping is definitely more comfy with d supershlds :-) Im back 2 using d electric pump. Tnx! :-)"

"...I was almost on the verge of giving up breastfeeding as even after pumping for 45 minutes to an hour, the amount of milk I had gotten was not even enough for my baby's one feed. I was basically racing against time every single day to match up with his demand! It was really tiring! However, when I called you to enquire about the Super Shields and subsequently met up with you, you were very helpful and encouraging. After trying out the Super Shields, I can now get the same amount of milk that I would have gotten previously, in a shorter time! Thank you so much for the wonderful product and kind advice! "

"Wonderful Super Shields! I can see fountains of milk even though it's only 2 hours ago that I last pumped, and my nipples don't feel sore! Money worth! My boy is taking well with NurturePure teats too. Thanks! =) "

"I love the Original Handsfree Strap and Super Shields. my son refused to latch on ever since I introduced him to the bottle when he was 1 week old, so I need to express 5-6 times daily. With your products, I can now express in half the time and same or if not higher volume too!"

"... Without your Super Shields, Original Handsfree Strap & both your patience in showing me how to use the strap, I don't think I'll still be breastfeeding my baby now! Great products & great service! "

"I feel very fortunate to have been given the thoughtful gift of the Pumpin' Pal Super Shields Plus Angled Flanges after having my third baby. I am a busy pediatrician who is extremely committed to breastfeeding and offering breast milk when I am away from home. I am a veteran of pumping from my older children and I was always conscious of the fact that I had to be in an uncomfortable forward-sitting position in order for the milk to flow into the collection bottle using the standard flange. Now, I can actually pump in comfort and my back does not hurt! Hooray for this much needed, innovative product!"

"I was originally just looking for a hands-free apparatus, but when I saw your Super Shields, realized those would help too because I had recently gone back to work (part-time) and pumping wasn’t draining me like nursing does and I was getting clogged ducts. The Super Shields have solved that problem wonderfully! I highly recommend the Super Shields for increased comfort and improved flow. I have actually already recommended these to a few of my other "pumping friends!"
"Often, I will work with a mom who repeatedly develops a cut right around the base of the nipple. When this occurs, I feel that the pressure from a straight flange tends to be causing the problem. When you provide an angled shield, the pressure on the base of the nipple is resolved. Offering a larger standard shield may appear to alleviate the problem, but it can result in reduced milk supply due to lack of stimulation. An angled shield provides less pressure to the base of the nipple, and due to the fact that the nipple is brought in on a slant, the specific size of the shield is not as much of an issue as it is with standard shields."
"Also, women who repeatedly develop plugged ducts may benefit from an angled shield. Again, when a nipple is brought in on an angle there is less direct stress at the base of the nipple. To use a metaphor: for some women a straight shield could have the same effect at the base of the nipple that an underwire would create on the breast. Angled shields do not depress directly on the base of the nipple."
"It seems that anyone between 22 to 30 mm can manage this angled shield, and they can lean back while using them. This can also be particularly helpful in cases where a mom is recuperating from c-section, and needs to pump. I work with hundreds of working moms each year, and there have been several situations where these shields provided the relief that the mother truly needed."
