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.

      I wouldn't be able to breastfeed my babygirl without this nipple shield. It has been a lifesaver for me. The Comfort shield lets her get some nose to nipple contact, which is great.

            FTM here and while I love the bonding of nursing I did not love the painful sore nipples! My nipples hurt so bad and I tried everything from lanolin creams to breastmilk and seeing a lactation nurse to see if my baby's latch was wrong . Well I saw these nipple shields and tried them and my nipples healed and they no longer hurt ! My baby did not notice the difference and we both are very happy when we nurse .

              Very helpful in protecting sore nipples that are cracked and bleeding with mastitis and thrush. Its very thin and flexible so my daughter didn't mind breastfeeding with it on. It also helped reduce the pain I was experiencing from pumping. Just make sure to wash it well with hot soap and water after each use. The only thing I wish this product had would be an "actual size" circle on the back of the packaging to attempt to compare your nipple diameter since you can't make sure it fits without opening the package and at $11 you don't want to buy the wrong size.

              With new baby not latching, the lactation consultant suggested using a nipple shield. It is the best thing. Baby is able to latch easily and we don't have to supplement as much formula.

                could work for others but didn't work for me. My son didn't like the nipple and I got it because I was very sore and I couldn't use it. But, this product has worked for friends of mine.

                  Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

                  Breast feeding was almost an impossibility. My baby was not able to latch at all to one side and the other was raw and bleeding from feeding. My lactation consultant recommended a nipple shield and my husband went out and found one ( which was not easy). I started using it right away and now my nipple has healed up and my baby is able to feed from each side. This nipple shield saved my ability to breast feed. I would recommend it to any new moms having pain, latching problems or just ones that have to supplement with formula. My little one was born at 37w5d and needs to be supplemented with formula to get her weight up. I think having the nipple shield keeps all the "nipples" feeling alike to prevent confusion or laziness in sucking. The only things I would suggest is making a 2 pack and making a case for holding it for ease of transport.

                    Baby couldn't latch on, so my mom picked up a shield and she ate immediately. I have been using it for 3 months with no issues. She has gained weight and grown more than expected. Without a shield I would have either been forced to exclusively pump or formula feed.

                      My granddaughter was born with a tied toungue, which makes it difficult for her to latch on for breastfeeding. She is now getting a good latch on & eating well. This product is amazing!! Also good when mothers are having difficulty breastfeeding due to serval other reasons. Wish I knew about it when I had my babies. THANK YOU! :)
