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.

Definitely helps with sore, cracked nipples
Definitely works for helping heal cracked sore nipples by giving the nipple a break.
Great help for breastfed babies
from Pittsfield, IL
I didn't use the nipple shield until my milk came in and baby had a problem latching since my nipples changed shape. I use them most of the time now, and sometimes we use it without and he doesn't have a problem latching when we try it without the shield. They are durable, I use special soap to get milk residue off and sanitize with steaming bags.
It's a great product
It's sooo easy n simple.
I would buy this product agian.

A few days after my son was born we were put in the NICU because he would not eat/latch. Turned out I was basically drowning him with my overproduction. SO since then we have used bottles with breast milk. But I missed the bonding experience with breast feeding and he would not take my nipple because it was not firm like the bottle. So I resorted to this product, and he latched right away! Best feeling in the world!
Perfect for babies who will transition to bottle feedings
See all my reviews
I like using these while breastfeeding because it's easier for baby to latch on. It also helps prepare them for bottle feedings if you need to pump and bottle feed. It makes the transition a lot easier.

Not that great! Has a hard time dealing to your breast which causes the baby to take in a lot of air.

These work very well. They have helped me ease into breastfeeding while still allowing enough contact between my baby and I to trigger letdown and milk production. My baby doesn't seem to mind using it either.
Easy to clean but

I absolutely love this it helped take most on the pain away with the "blebs" I was getting on one side from my daughter. They are super easy to clean and keep up with. But, depending on the bra you can kinda see them through it. Also, I wish they stuck better. I used it while I was home to feed her and it was so much more comfortable and it was in my size, 21mm. It was super easy for her to latch with right off the at.
