How do I place Elvie Pump on my breast and align my nipple correctly?

Along with choosing the right Breast Shield it's also really important to align the Breast Shield to the direction of your nipples when you are putting it on. No two nipples point in the same direction!

Getting Elvie Pump on correctly can take a little practice. Until you are comfortable aligning your nipple we recommend you put on just the Breast Shield, without the Hub. Bending forwards and holding your breast from underneath. Bring the Breast Shield to your breast, paying attention to the direction of your nipple. You can use the markings on the Breast Shield to help align your nipple.

We’re all different, no two nipples point in the same direction! Align the Breast Shield to the direction of your nipples when you are putting it on. Use a mirror to check your nipple is centered.

Once you are confident the Breast Shield is in the right place, hold it in position with one hand and push the Hub onto the Breast Shield.
