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.

The Medela shield is a great product. It is the only brand I have used since having my son. The shield is able to withstand multiple washes and uses with no issues. One of the only downsides is that it is clear, so if you set it down somewhere and forget, it can be difficult to find.
I like the product and it was useful

the product helped with latch
See all my reviews
It worked great the first couple times I used it. But it got lost after 2 days because it's extremely clear and easy to lose.
Worked great to give my nipples a chance to heal while we figured out how to correct our latch! Super easy to use!
i would buy again
worked well with my baby
Saved my life!

This really helped me with breastfeeding both of my babies. It was a lifesaver!!
from Beaver Falls, PA
My daughter was a few weeks early. Lactation consultant at the hospital brought this in to help with her suction. She is now 2 months and I'm still using them. She won't nurse well without it and it protects me from sore, cracked nipples. I just wish they came colored and could buy cases for them. I'm always misplacing it.

I picked this item up for my daughter-in-law who just became a new mom. Baby was having trouble nursing on one side and the nipple shield the hospital provided was too large. This one was a better size for baby and everyone is happy.
I recommend the product
