Our soft silicone Fitmie inserts are used to reduce the size of our funnels’ diameters. Fitmie Silicone Inserts come in 12 different diameters ranging from 15mm to 26mm. Fitmie Inserts are designed to be slipped into Freemie Cups’ Funnels to help you find the optimal fit. Every woman is different, and the diameter, shape and feel of your breast pump’s funnels can be as important as finding the right pair of shoes to successful pumping. You may even find that different sizes for each breast work best for you.
While we unfortunately don’t have enough options and sizes to find the perfect fit for every woman, we do have inserts that span the most popular range of sizes in one millimeter increments. And we’re working on more, so if we don’t have the size you need, please tell us. While we may not be able to make new sizes in time for you, your feedback will help us help more women in the future.
1) Inserts are not necessary for the proper functioning of the breast pump. These inserts are used only to reduce the diameter of the funnels’ tunnel, and provide a softer feel around the areola.
2) Most women’s breasts are not perfectly symmetrical. You may prefer different size funnels or inserts for each breast.
3) Fitmie inserts must be used in conjunction with, and are not used in place of the Freemie Cups’ funnels.
4) Different women will have different results with silicone inserts. Some women will find the Freemie Cups’ rigid plastic funnels to be more comfortable. A variety of factors, from the elasticity and shape of your breast tissue and areola, to the dryness of your skin, to the suction levels you set your pump to will affect which style and size breast funnel will work best for you. Unfortunately, trial and error is required to find the optimal fit and comfort for all breast pumps.
