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:

    This was recommended to us by our lactation consultant, 4 days after our daughter was born. My daughter was having a hard time finding my nipple and therefore wouldn't latch. The nipple shield helped "extend" my nipple so that it hit the roof of her mouth and triggered a latch. This turned our breastfeeding experience around completely!

          Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

          I was given one of these shields at the hospital when my daughter was having trouble latching. It was a lifesaver the first few weeks. It helped her to hold on and get the proper suction and it protected me from pain and discomfort. Additionally, my daughter was able to transition back and forth from the breast to the bottle since the textures are similar.
          I wash it with mild detergent and I do sterilize it but it gets cloudy after a while. That didn't seem to affect the performance.
          I think the shield should be standard equipment for any woman who is just starting to breastfeed and I honestly don't know if I'd be able to nurse without it.

                        My baby wouldn't lach on after birth because of the shape of my nipples . I was given a nipple shield at the hospital and I bought more after I was discharged . Thanks to it my baby has been able to breastfeed without any problems.
                        Added plus- after the first few days of nipple soreness from the new experience of having a baby in your breast almost 24/7, these little plastic things protect you from getting cracked bloody nipples.
                        Con- need to be stored properly and washed before and after every feeding and are easy to misplace because you are likely sleep deprived.
                        Overall u would recommend it to anyone!

                                The nipple shield is great because I'm able to breast-feed with less pain. I will not leave home without my nipple shield and if I do I will be going to the nearest babies R us or Toys "R" Us to retrieve one. This is a great product that I would use over and over and has given me the opportunity to breast-feed with my second child. My first child I did not have that opportunity of the nipple shield so I did not breast-feed.
