Don’t see (feel?) much difference
Pumping (and nursing) is and always has been painful for me. I used the 24mm with my first son, but got the “large” (27mm) of the personal fit or whatever they’re called after my second son was born. I decided to try the Softfit just to see and I see no difference in feeling. Possibly they’re too small for me. Also, I’ve only tried them once so far. I wish they made them in larger sizes. I do like that it’s got a shorter funnel tube part thingy. That’s pretty cool. Otherwise…eh. Oh, and not being able to microwave sterilize them kind of sucks. But they function.
Better than the shields that come with the pump
I started pumping using the shields that came with the pump. It was frustrating because they constantly dug in and left red rings on my body by the end of a pumping session. While shopping, I noticed these and decided they might be the solution I needed. They were. They aren’t perfect, but they definitely are better than the original hard plastic things.
soft cups worked well
I liked the soft cups better than the solid ones because it just worked better for me. they are a little harder to clean as the soft plastic part gets gooey after awhile.
At first I only used the hard plastic breastshields with my Medela Freestyle breastpump, but I quickly realized why these softfit shields are far superior. They provide a nice vacuum when using the hands free bra which makes it a lot easier to pump without spillage.
I own just about EVERYTHING Medela makes. I thought I would buy these because I pump so much and maybe they would feel better on my breast. Boy, did they. I love these so much better than the hard ones. Worth the extra buy!
