    Default Pump ? for NFTMs

    My best friends is lending me her Medela as she rarely used it but I know I need to get replacement parts for it. Since I will be doing that I might as well get or at least measure to see what size to order along with the membranes, tubes, valves. So my question is - exactly what do I measure, the diameter of the areola?

    Also - is there anything else I should know to replace/order?

    I don't know about measuring, but this has a good description and pictures of proper fit.

    I got my bigger flanges from the hospital; it was a kind of trial-and-error thing for me after getting a friction sore from the 24mm flanges on my larger breast.

    FWIW, it seems to be nipple size, not aereola size. Bigger flanges have bigger nipple openings. (I have 24, 27 & 30mm flanges for my breasts & have used all 3 sizes at various points through the past 5 months EP-ing & then nursing my DD.)
