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.

  • Protects sore or cracked nipples during breastfeeding
  • Keep nursing baby while you heal
  • Narrow design lets baby smell your skin
  • Made of odorless, flavorless silicone
  • Can be sterilized by boiling or steaming

Included in the Box

Two Philips AVENT nipple protectors.

Philips AVENT SCF156/01 Standard Nipple Protector, BPA Free

Features

Philips AVENT SCF156/01 Standard Nipple Protector, BPA Free

Protect Your Healing Skin While You Nurse

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.

Philips AVENT SCF156/01 Standard Nipple Protector, BPA Free

Made of Odorless, Flavorless Silicone

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.

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.

Go with Medela instead!

    Comments about Avent America inc Philips AVENT Nipple Protectors 2 Pack:

    I was given a Medela shield in the hospital to help my daughter latch and came home and tried my Avent shields. I was less than pleased with the Avent shields as they constantly fall off while my daughter nurses if she moves her head the slightest way. It's also very hard to get her to latch in the first place because while she is looking for my nipple (she is only 5 weeks yet) she moves to find it and knocks this shield off. I wouldn't waste money on these ones, just invest in the Medela brand shields!

    Comments about Avent America inc Philips AVENT Nipple Protectors 2 Pack:

    I bought the Avent nipple protectors to replace my Medela nipple shield (my dog at it). I thought it would be a better deal since the Avent comes in a 2 pack for a similar price but I was mistaken. Avent's silicone is very thick and I found that it does not stick to the breast as well as the Medela which is thinner and stays on better as long as you use Dawn dish soap after every use. Also the hole the milk passes through seems larger and flow seemed to bother the baby, although this did happen sometimes with the Medela as well.

      Great for times when my nipples were so sore that I wanted to stop nursing all together. Also good for latching problems. Wouldn't recommend using with every feed as to not cause nipple confusion with baby.

        OMG!! My sister in law purchased these for me and they were life savers!!! They helped me little one latch properly and decrease the initial pain of breastfeeding. It doesn't take it away completely, but it helps. I keep one in the diaper bag and one in my purse!

            Comments about Avent America inc Philips AVENT Nipple Protectors 2 Pack:

            I bought these nipple shields since they were cheaper than others and came in a storage case. Unfortunately, they do not work well for my son and me. The sides do not stay clung onto my breast, instead they attach themselves to my sons cheeks which disrupts his nursing. The nipple area is also a bit large for my sons mouth. As a result, I use these only as a last resort.

            Comments about Avent America inc Philips AVENT Nipple Protectors 2 Pack:

            I bought this item after it was recommended to me by another new mom. She said her lactation consultant gave her these in the hospital, and it was supposed to help the baby be able to go from the bottle and breast without any nipple confusion (and it's supposed to be less painful for a new mom whose nipples were sore).
            My three week old was able to latch on and eat no problem while I was using this item. It was also fairly painless for me. The reasons that I don't use these more often are that they are a little messy due to milk collecting in the tip, and they were inconvenient for me to use. 99% of our feedings are just me and my son, and I found it difficult to keep a hand on him so he didn't wiggle off of my lap and put one and hold it in place with the other one. If I had my husband at every feeding handing my son to me, I'd probably use this a lot more, but I don't. Overall, nice product if you are more coordinated at feeding time than I am.

              This shield really helped re-establish my and my son's breastfeeding relationship. He had latch problems after being coerced into formula feeding in the hospital until a test result came back... since then he essentially couldn't "find" my nipple without the shield. After using it for a few weeks he had no problem latching once the shield was taken away.
              The only downside to this product (or my mistake while using it) was it deformed slightly along the center edges. I may have washed it in too hot of water? Only 1 of the 2 shields did this, though.
