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:

    After my son was in the NICU for 5 days I was worried about breastfeeding. I was given the medela nipple shield to help him latch on , and two weeks later at home I am still using it at every feeding. It's easy for him to automatically latch on, get his milk, and come off. They're easy to clean & easy to store. The material is also comfortable on my skin .the only bad thing I have to say about these, is when they're wet or full of milk they can slide off. I highly recommend to anyone needing some breastfeeding assistance !

              This shield stays better than the others that I've tried and the flow is not too fast for my newborn. It was extremely easy to clean. It really made the breast feeding process much more smooth!

              I would buy this again and again! In fact I have 3! Due to flat nipples my little one has a hard time latching to breastfeed. This saves our lives! Without it I wouldn't be able to breastfeed. She is able to latch and had been gaining weight like a champ! I love the cut-out to give us better skin-to-skin while she eats. I have been using this for 6 months and plan to save it to use with my 2nd child.

              Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

              My son was born two weeks early and very small, and I'm a first time mom trying to learn how to breastfeed. He wouldn't latch well so a nurse at the hopsital gave me a nipple shield and it has been awesome! It protects the nipple from soreness and if the baby is a sleepy eater like mine, it's super helpful because the milk collects in the nipple shield and isn't lost if the baby pauses. I can tell he's getting enough to eat because I can see the milk drawn into the sheild and I can hear him swallowing. It can be difficult to get it to stay on while you're first trying to set up a latch (sometimes he knocks it off with his fist or pushes it off with his mouth if the angle isn't right) but it's pretty easy overall. It's very easy to clean, just warm soapy water. The worst thing about it is its easy to lose because its clear. He is only a week old and i've tried breastfeeding without the nipple shield and he still can't get a latch. I was determined to breastfeed so this product has been a lifesaver!!!

              Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

              After multiple tries to breastfeed my son during our hospital stay, and no luck getting him to latch, the nurse gave me a Medela Nipple Shield, and my son latched on immediately. Those first attempts to breastfeed without the shield were overwhelming for me, and frustrating for my son, so I was grateful for the shield. I purchased an additional shield once I left the hospital so I could have back up. My only negative remark, is that it is difficult to get it to stay in place. Once my son latches there's no problem, but getting him on initially can be difficult sometimes if the shield shifts or falls off. I've tried wetting the shield before putting it on, which helps some. But there have been times where my son will get so frustrated waiting on me to get the shield just right, that feeding becomes a battle. The shifting of the shield can also be messy, as milk that collects in the shield will spill out. Without the shield my son wouldn't be able to breastfeed at all, so minus the one negative, it's been a lifesaver.

                If I didn't find this product I would not have been able to continue to nurse my daughter! I had severely cracked and chapped nipples that brought me to tears any time my daughter would nurse. The cracks started in the hospital and opened up to sore shortly after being home. This product was the only thing that allowed me to continue to nurse. With this product, the nipple cream prescribed by my doctor I was able to nurse my daughter until she was 14 months old. I plan to use this with my second child right from the start hopefully to prevent the anguish I suffered with my initial attempt to breastfeed.

                  I never new this product existed until I wound up having a preemie. I live the fact that its like a bottle nipple that rests on the nipple to try and stimulate natural nursing. I only wish it stays on better. My baby sometimes fights against nursing and I'm struggling to keep this product on while trying to calm by baby into nursing. Over all it's a good product.
