    I need to order a smaller flange. I am using the size that came with the machine and it is way too large.
    This is causing me to be sore after pumping. Need to order a smaller size.

      Hi Connie,
      What pump are you using? It is possible that you can get a smaller size. Most pumps come with a medium. Bigger brands, like Medela, have more sizes that you can purchase. There are also third-party sellers that make parts to fit various brands and they offer a lot of sizes as well. MayMom is the most well known. They sell on Amazon. Let me know what pump you are using and I will see if I can find you one!
