A nurse at the hospital recommended this product. As a new mom I had never heard of this product before and did not anticipate how sore my nipples would be at first. Just place over nipples with air holes up and stick one tissue in the outer rim and another squished at the bottom. Remember to change tissues after every feeding because both sides express milk at the same time. The shield does 3 things. One is that it protects from rubbing and any additional contact to the sore area. Secondly it allows your nipples to heal faster by letting air get to them. Thirdly as you become engorged your breast becomes very rounded making it difficult for baby to latch on. This product makes your nipples/areola stick out more so that you don't have to express by hand first and baby latches on easily. This product is a must have for new breastfeeding moms.

I got these to use for both sore and flat nipples. I found them awkward to use, uncomfortable, and overall not that helpful. Others complained that they leaked, but they are not meant to absorb, so I didn't score that as an issue. Sore nipples were treated better with Lansinoh and cotton nursing pads. I ended up using a silicone nursing shield to help with the flat nipples, which ended up helping the sore nipples as well.

I have purchased it for my super sore nipples from breastfeeding, but these create a weird shape so I can't wear it outside. Inside - yes and provides some relief...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Parent of Two or More Children
I first used these in the hospital with my first due to some nursing problems. The doctor suggested using them again ahead of time to avoid the issue and I've already noticed a difference!! Feeling more prepared for the next baby!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good product, perfect for my necesities.
from Dothan, AL
Works fine. Keeps my breasts safe from licking milk and sore nipples.
Didn't work for me
from Allentown PA
I used these for a flat nipple but had no resolve. Couldn't return them because they were open, waste of money for me
from Miami, FL
Very convince and easy to use. Provide great solution for the sour nipples
Not what I thought they were
from North Weymouth, MA
I only used these one time and will probably never use them again. I thought they would work well but they leak my milk that was caught within the bottom every time I bend forward and they make a mess. They are more comfortable as far as against my shirts etc. vs pads, however, they are also very pointy and look odd.
Better than ads
from Brooklawn, NJ
I have used these with my middle child. They did not irritate and created a great barrier from my clothing and nipples. I am now 32 weeks pregnant and looking forward to using these again. I will never again use the nursing pads and tell all moms to be to use this product.

Good if you are staying home
from New York, New York
The product works well if you are staying home, although it traps the moisture inside of the shell since your bra covers the little holes which actually enables it to air yourself out. It's also bulky and not discreet, making it hard to wear out in public (it looks like u have insanely large nipples).
from Bakersfield ca
So useful when nipples are scabbed or blistered!
