Soft/Silicone Sheild/horn?

Are there pumps out there with soft (silicone maybe?) shields/horns? I have a double pump (a cheapie Medela double electric that WIC gave me six years ago). The pump I have is okay but I feel like a soft silicone shield (what Medela calls the horn part) would be so much more comfortable. Links to pumps that have this? Or better yet, if they sold them for the pump I had would be fabulous! TIA!

Medela used to make Softfit shield, I had one with my Swing. I think they sell them with the Freestyle now too. I've looked for them sold seperately but haven't been ableto find them recently. I know Ameda comes with a petal insert but I've heard mixed reviews.

Look for Pumpin' Pals. You can find them on Amazon. Haven't used them personally, but have heard good things.

Just got pumpin pals and love them! Thought people were nuts for saying flanges were "comfortable" but they actually are! And I could lean back while pumping! It could have been coincidence but I even got one more ounce than my all time high lol
