Is anyone having problems with the Medela soft fit shields? I feel like they pinch the area around my areola

  • are they nipple shields? if so you might want to investigate a different shape, they come in different shapes and sizes.
    i would also be wary of continual use of nipple shields, they can be habit forming.

  • No I don't use nipple shields, it's the breast shields
