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.

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

Due to baby's difficulty latching on for feedings, the hospital provided me with a medium shield. Thinking the continued difficulty was due to it being too large, I got a small one. Unfortunately there's been no change. It makes it easier for the baby to latch, but falls off easily so if the baby moves a little, the shield comes off and you have to try to put it back on. Price was not bad and it could be useful for some mothers.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

    After coming home from the hospital and breast feeding my newborn my nipples got really sore. They even began to bleed and scab over. My friend suggested I get the nipple shield. I did and it saved my nipples. It allowed me to breast feed while giving my nipples a chance to heal. Without this shield I believe I would've given up on breast feeding.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

    My lactation consultant says this shield is like "training wheels" for breastfeeding my son. He has a tight frenulum and combined with my flat nipples, he needed some help latching until his mouth gets stronger. The shield is great and helps him stay latched so that he gets plenty to eat. It's not the most ideal situation and makes feeding in public a little more difficult, but as long as it works!

    Not worth trying at all

          Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

          As a first time mom and breastfeeder, my technique is flawed and my nipples quickly became sore within the first few days. The hospital lactation consultant recommended that I try nipple covers. Since Medela is such a highly regarded brand, I tried these nipple covers. From the get go I realized that the cover does not stick to my nipple at all. Also, the nipple cup itself was very large (I am a DD cup with very large nipples, so this is saying something). I immediately realized after the first feed with the covers that my baby had more gas; this is because the awkward fit on my breast allowed lots of extra air in while he fed. Also, the nipple cover did little to minimize pain or wear and tear on my nipple skin. I have tried feeds with and without the cover and without fail every time I use this cover my baby suffers from really terrible gas attacks! i wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

            This shield allowed me to continue breast feeding. My nipples were so sore I couldn't have continued without it. Once I got the shield no more pain and nipples healed. If you want to breastfeed without shield in future don't use it all the time because my baby got used to it and didn't want to latch on my nipple anymore. Great product! My only suggestion is I wish it came with a carrying case so I could take with me in diaper bag without worrying about germs.

              I received these shields in this hospital and I wanted an extra. I love how easy it makes breastfeeding and how much they help with pain. The medium size fit me better but I tried both sizes.

                My little one was having problems latching and breast feeding was getting very stressful. After I bought this nipple shield, her problems with latching were solved. It's also great that her nose doesn't get covered by it. Better to use the shield than not breast feed at all!

                  The nipple shield works great! Had issues latching and almost left the hospital with my newborn not sure how I'd feed her. Then last min. given this nipple shield to try and have never looked back. Works great!

                      I found this product extremely helpful. I was first given the product while in the hospital as my daughter was a preemie and having issues nursing. Once I started to use this product she had a much easier time. Once home from the hospital, I went out and brought another one. It's the only way my daughter will nurse. Product is easy to use and to clean. Would recommend it to any new mom having issues nursing.
