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.

This product allowed my daughter to breastfeed her preemie
from Monroeville pa
Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:
My daughter had her son 5 weeks early. If it was not for these should would not have been able to breastfeed. She would not have that bonding time with her son. Because of this product she was able to. They still use them currently and he has gained 2 lbs. Seriously we cannot thank you enough.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great to help jumpstart nursing for new moms whose littles having trouble latching
from Ypsilanti, MI
This product saved my life! New mom not knowing what I'm doing and it hurt to let my child nurse. I almost gave up on the idea of nursing completely until my sister told me about these. It was comfortable and helped me bond more with my baby. Now my son is 10weeks old and still nursing. Sometimes he doesn't want to nurse unless we use the nipple shield but it also helps with my heavy let down so he no longer chokes when nursing.

This shield really helps with a baby who has trouble latching properly. You do need to make sure your baby is in the proper position to avoid infection

With latch difficulties, this product made it easier for my lo to latch
from Middlesex, Nj
This product was so helpful to me! The lactation specialist at the hospital had given me one to help feed my newborn and I had my husband get more for me when we got home because it was the only way my little guy could latch on! Because of this product I am able to breastfeed my baby! And my sister in law used one as well and she said that it definitely hurt a little less by using the shield! Highly recommend!
