sorry if this has been discussed already, I haven't been on this forum in a few months but... Here goes:
so when I started pumping I had to get the XL size breast shields. The mediums that it came with were too small and incredibly painful. I have to pump every day for my LOs daycare bottle the next day. It can take over an hour to get 3 oz, when it used to take maybe 20-30 mins to get 5. I tried power pumping, I tried new membranes, etc. then I realized (it just hit me after a good couple of months) that my breast shields were pulling my areola in and making a gulping noise and that that should not be happening. So I switched today back to the medium size and they fit PERFECTLY. And I got 3 oz in about 30 mins! My question is if this happened to anyone else? Did my nipples shrink? Will I finally get my boobs back to how they were?! I'm still in the same bra size (I think? I don't have any bras that fit "right" so idk) but I'm just so confused about how I could go from an XL to a M in nipple size. Thanks to anyone who kept reading this lol.
