When breastfeeding has left your nipples sore and cracked, Philips AVENT nipple protectors let you keep nursing comfortably. The silicone shields cover your nipples so your skin can heal, and baby's latch-on creates a seal, letting your little one suckle milk through the shield's three holes. The shields are narrow so your bundle of joy can still smell and taste your skin while feeding.
Two Philips AVENT nipple protectors.
Philips AVENT nipple protectors let you keep nursing baby comfortably when your skin has become sore or cracked from breastfeeding. These silicone shields sit on top of the nipple so baby can latch on like normal. Three holes at the shield's peak let milk flow through to your hungry little one.
The odor- and taste-free silicone shields are just 1 inch across, so baby can still feel and smell your skin while nursing. Since baby can still feed, your milk supply will stay stimulated and your baby will easily go back to your nipple once your skin has healed. Silicone is durable and can be sterilized by boiling for five minutes or in any Philips AVENT sterilizer.
The AVENT nipple protector is worn during breastfeeding to help protect sore or cracked nipples and minimize pain. The shape allows skin contact with baby and is made of odorless, tasteless, ultra-fine silicone.

We left the hospital feeling optimistic that we got a good latch. When we came home we got so frustrated because I have inverted nipples. I was almost about to switch to formula feeding. But these little miracles saved us! They are so thin that I still feel like I am breastfeeding without the pain and frustration. As my mom said, whoever invented these, should definitely get recognized for an outstanding product idea. My husband got me 5 packs of these, so I keep one in our diaper bag, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom, etc. So I highly recommend buying more than one pack, so you don't have to clean them right after each use. Just use mild soap to wash them, rinse and boil them for a few minutes in the evening and you are set for another hassle free breastfeeding day!One con- it's sometimes hard to stick them on. I usually put a drop of water on each side to solve this problem.

When my baby was born she had latching problem, bcoz of my flat nipples. One of the Lactation consultant gave me this to try. It worked like wonders, the baby could latch on easily. Almost used it for 4 months. Tried to wean her from nipple shield but was very difficult.Finally when I went back to work, she mostly took bottle during the hours I was out. When I came back home, baby got very frustrated with the nipple shield. Luckily I was successfuly able to use this opportunity to wean her from shield.WARNNING: - use this as temporary solution only. Otherwise, its very hard to wean the baby from using nipple shield.

I liked that there were two shields with a case, so I could keep one in the diaper bag. Their shape, however, makes them difficult to keep on and position for easy use by baby.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I tried the Mandela nipple shields with my last pregnancy and I wasn't successful with getting the baby to latch. This time I decided to. It the Avent brand because it looks slightly smaller. I've successfully been breastfeeding for almost four months now. Only downside is because they are clear I'm constantly loosening them!
Have & would purchase again
Allowed my baby to learn to nurse without subjecting myself to pain & discouragement.
I would buy this again.

About Me First Time Parent, Working Parent
My son had nipple confusion because he was used to the bottle but I still wanted to breastfeed. So I bought these so that he can still latch on thinking he's eating from a bottle. It worked!He had no trouble breastfeeding once I used the nipple protector.
2nd time buying for my 2nd daughter!

I was introduced to the nipple shield when my baby was born while at the hospital. baby was not latching correctly and the shield help my baby feed without a problem. I really felt relieved when he was able to finally feed
from Wilmington DE
Absoluetly awful. My daughter has a high palate so i need a shield. Tried this for about four days, then went to a follow up with the lactation consultant and forgot it. She has nothing but medela products so i tried a medela shield and HOLY COW! It works wonders. It stays in place and doesnt move all around like avent does.
