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.

Nipple Saver, Looks Dirty Quickly

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.

It just works!

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

Nipple shields saved us in the hospital. I was too engorged for baby to eat. This regulated flow and made it bite size. As he grows it's made teething easier. Bites are a little better with protection. I like this one because the off centered opening fits a full or less than full breast. I keep 3 on hand so I don't have to clean as often. Also, putting it on baby's forehead turns him into a unicorn...

Worked great! But it was only temporary

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

Our newborn was having problems latching until this nifty product was suggested to us by a friend. It worked great till after a few weeks, the baby no longer needed it. It was a great aid and would definitely recommend it to anybody who's had latching problems. Probably won't work on everyone though.

Great Product

By Tyi

from Mount Vernon, NY

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

I was given the breast shield the first day in the hospital to start breast feeding. My son took to it immediately and then the next day I tried to use it he wouldn't latch on it. I pumped for the first two week because he refused to latch. By day 14 I was ready to give up on breast feeding untilI I remembered that I had bought it home with me and I tried it again. He latched on and is doing well with breast feeding. I can give my pump a break thanks to this product!

      Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

      This shield has been very helpful. My newborn had trouble nursing and latching and feeding. This shield has made a huge difference and has allowed him to latch and nurse so much better. I have been so thankful for the medela shields. The fit is good, I got both the 20mm and the 24mm and I have gone back and forth between them. The 20mm is more narrow and is a tighter fit with a more narrow nipple for the baby to nurse. The 24mm is much wider and fills the babies mouth more. They have both worked well for me. I think the size is more of a personal preference and comfort thing.

      Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

      I was so discouraged about breast feeding my son after the initial intense pain and scabbed nipples that I was experiencing but once I found these shields, everything changed. We have such an easy time with feedings now. He latches on perfectly and everything goes smooth.

      Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

      I first used this in the hospital after my daughter was born. It really helped her to latch. I lost the one they gave me so I purchased a new one. I would recommend it for anyone who has issues with baby latching due to inverted nipples.

      Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

      I have used this product before and it really worked for me and baby. But with this baby it didn't work to well. All it did was cause pain and bleeding. But I would still definitely try again and tell others about this product.
