I bought one of these nipple shields before my baby was born, thanks to a friend's suggestion. It turned out to be a lifesaver! My son is now three months old and I don't think I would still be breastfeeding today without it. My son did not have trouble latching on, as many posters babies did, but the shields kept my nipples from getting too sore to nurse. I used them religiously for the first 6 weeks. Plus, when I started feeding my son a bottle, he took to it right away, thanks to the nipple shield. I would suggest this product to any breastfeeding mom. My only complaint is that they are easy to lose. I went through about 6 shields, because they are clear and hard to see when you drop them.

Our pediatrician recommended this product after bad nursing advice at the hospital for new moms was "wrecking" their ability to nurse. It was an absolutely wonderful help the first few weeks in protecting the nipple from my little barracuda baby, and in helping him to latch better. The down side was that the nipple itself was a touch too big because sometimes it caused latching problems because it was a bit big for his mouth. In the beginning, it also caused a rash on his face because his saliva would get trapped between the silicone and his skin (easily remedied). The only down side to this product is that it gets "gross" (looks dirty) very quickly despite washing it correctly. And, whatever you do, only use warm soapy water to clean it; if you sterilize it with boiling water or in the microwave then it breaks down quickly.

As a note for new moms, if your baby starts to get a rash around his/her mouth from pacifiers/bottles/medella contact nipple because of "saliva suction", try a little Aquaphor (regular or Baby). Aquaphor works great for everything from facial issues, dryness, infant acne & diaper rash.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    I decided to pick this up because I was having latch problems with my son. I was using the ameda brand that the hospital gave me but he hated it. I also have a forceful let down and this helped slow things down so my son didn't have to keep pulling away! And I also have very sore and cracked nipples and I found that it makes it a little less painful while nursing.

      I was having a painful latch and decided to try the shield. After a few attempts LO successfully latched and nursing was not painful. I used these shields with my last baby as well and they lasted for the few months that I used them before weaning from using the shield.

        I was given one of these at the hospital to help my daughter latch because she was tongue-tied when she was born. I came home and tried the Avent brand that I had received at my baby shower and was less then please. I ran to Babies R Us when I was healed enough to buy more of these Medela shields! I would not be able to breast feed my daughter if it weren't for these! They stay on nicely and so far in her 5 weeks of life have not ripped or cracked.

          My newborn had trouble latching, so I purchased these nipple shields, as I had heard that they may help. Unfortunately, they did not work for me. My newborn did not latch any better with the shield on. Therefore, I am giving a bad review - however, I assume that it just depends on the baby, because I have friends who have said the shields did work.

              There were some setbacks initially when it came to breast-feeding my new worn, which was extremely frustrating. I purchased this item on a whim and it has been life-changing! I'm now able to nurse my newborn and have been able to wean him off the nipple shield and onto full contact with a little opposition to our new family member. my only complaint is that the integrity of the plastic seems to decrease with every wash/views but I've had it for two weeks and I'm still able to use it daily.
