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.

Saved my breastfeeding...!
from New York, NY
Fits very well and helps greatly for baby to latch. Saved my breastfeeding, recommended!
This product is a lifesaver!
from St. Louis, MO
I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on December 20th, 2016. She was perfect in every way but had a bit of a problem latching on. Formula feeding is not an option so I knew I had to try something to help her latch on. A lactation consultant at Mercy Hospital brought me a nipple shield and she has been eating like a pro ever since!! I have purchased two more since leaving the hospital and couldn't be happier!
Love this nipple shield
from Dothan, AL
This nipple shield SAVED MY LIFE during those early weeks of breastfeeding! When my nipples were so sore and cracked, the nipple shield allowed me to continue nursing without the pain!! Would recommend to all breastfeeding moms!!
Great product would recommend it
from Oxnard, CA
This product is great it has helped me be able to nurse and bond with my newborn
Great for preemies
My lactation consultant at the hospital recommend me to try this product when my preemie baby was having trouble latching on. Its also good for sre nipples or small nipples. I would recommend buying two. One for home and one for the diaper bag. Just make sure to get the right size. Ask your nurse or consultant for one, my hospital had them on hand.
This is a lifesaver when it comes to breastfeeding.
Thank goodness for them!
from Washington state
If we didn't use them, we wouldn't have been able to breastfeed as often. Perfect for woman who's babies are having a hard time matching due to Dhillon niooles on mkm
Already bought a 2nd to have on hand
from Sterling Heights, MI
Had the hardest time trying to get my son to latch on. The hospital sent us with a medium size shield but it seemed too big when trying to use. The small has worked great and I can get him to nurse no problem. Just bought a 2nd to have just in case I lose the one.
Couldn't breastfeed without it
from Atlanta, GA
The lactation consultant in the hospital brought this to me when my son was born. I have purchased several since! I cannot breastfeed without it.
