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.

I dont leave the house without it
from Grand Rapids, MI
This helped to ease any pain I was feeling from breastfeeding. The way it is made allows for babys lip to still feel skin. This is easy to clean and sterilize as well. I do not go anywhere without it. I just wish I had one for every room in my house that I feed the baby in!

It was good did everything it's supposed to. My LO prefers the bigger mm one.
By New Mom
Very helpful for moms with flatter nipples. I had absolutely no issues getting my baby to latch on with this.
from Cleveland, OH
Unfortunately we bought the smaller size but it works.
Definitely helped me in my beginning stages of breastfeeding. I was having trouble with my baby latching on coming from the hospital and using this helped so much. Just a few weeks later, baby and I have both gotten the hang of it and are now nursing without a hitch.
This item is a true life saver
from Ovid, NY
This nipple shield is a total life saver for moms who want to breatfeed their babies but are unable to because of latching issues! My son was unable to latch to me while in the hospital when we first tried nursing. My nurse gave me the shield to try and it worked like a charm! Unfortunately is accidentally lost the one my nurse gave me, so I had to order a new one through Babies "R" Us, which thankfully you had! My son is still unable to latch to me but will take to the shield still while we're at home! I've recommended this item to several friends who are having the same issue with their babies and they all love it too! Thank you Medela for creating such a great item giving mothers like me the ability to nurse our children! You rock!

I use this product for breasfeeding. With my first child, I didn't know this product was an option. Breastfeeding was not an enjoyable experience. Now that I have the nipped sheild, breastfeeding my second child is much more enjoyable.
