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.

Although it is a different size than I normally use it's easy for the baby to latch and nurse with.

About Me Daycare Provider/ Educator, First Time Parent, Working Parent
This is the only way my baby will nurse. So happy to have found this. Easy to wash. It's clear so it's hard to find if it's dark or if it drops.
Pack this in your hospital bag

I only used this off and on for a little less than two weeks but it was so worth it. It helped my son latch correctly and gave my nipples a break after they cracked.
Best product ever

It makes breast feedings easy
from Long Island NY
This product helped my baby nurse since I have short nipples. It seems easy to use but it's actually more complicated than it seems, especially when you're a sleep-deprived first-time mom. I recommend getting help from a lactation consultant or another mom with experience using a nipple shield.The silicone above the nipple became a little warped after a few uses and washes. Luckily it bent inwards so my baby could still make suction with it. I ended up needing a smaller size (16mm) made by Avent that works better for us.
