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.

About Me First Time Parent, Working Parent
With a newborn and finding out I had inverted nipped, something I never knew about, my little one had problems latching on. This nipple shield was the perfect solution and a huge help. Definitely recommend.
I had to get one of these things a couple days after my daughter was born because my nipples were just shredded from her trying to latch. She has had no issues with this on when feeding, the only downside is she moves her hands a lot and basically knocks it off when I have it on so I have to keep putting it back on. Also not a fan of milk collecting in it so when she does knock it off me I get a nice spilling of milk down my side.
I highly recommend it!!

About Me Education Oriented, First Time Parent, NICU Nurse, Working Parent
Breastfeeding my newborn was a must and it started out okay. My little one decided that she didn't want to stay latched well and feeding her became a very painful, dreaded experience. I know from working in a NICU that nipple shields can really improve the infants latch and take away some of the pains of breastfeeding. Ever since I started using the nipple shield, breastfeeding is more enjoyable bonding experience from both me and my little one.
This product is a life saver!

My son had a strong lip/tongue tie when he was born and couldn't really latch well on his own. The lacticioner gave me one of these nipple shields in the hospital and it was life changing. I got my sons lip/tongue tie fixed but I still love using this product. I'm a little bit of a germaphobe so just washing it after ever use doesn't seem enough to me so I like to wash then boil it. I went back to the store and bought 5 more ! So I boil all 6 and this makes it so much more convenient through the nights so I don't have to get up and boil one after every feed. I would definitely recommend this product to any moms who have trouble latching their babies.
No one gave us any direction with these.. when to wean my daughter from the shield. But, if it weren't for the shield, I wouldn't have been able to breastfeed so I'm happy with it. I hard ordered several to keep in both cars, in the diaper bag, and throughout the house.

Since my baby was born I have been using this nipple shield. It is awesome and makes breastfeeding so much easier and comfortable. My baby gets lots of milk all the time and my nipples stulll looking pretty .I bought 4 of this already, I keep one in the diaper bag, one next to my bed, one is always clean in a container and the other one in my bag. It is super easy to clean and once they are washed and dried and put in a ziplock bag and is ready to use.
