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.

Exactly what I needed!

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

When my son was born, he did not latch properly; this left my breasts cracked and bleeding. The nurse who cared for my son and I at the hospital suggested a nipple shield, and it was a welcomed relief. I would use mine when it hurt too much to breastfeed, or when he was too sleepy, but still hungry, at night. Our lactation consultant advised us not to use one very often, but what we were doing was alright.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    I used the contact nipple on one breast as my daughter did not want to latch onto that side. It worked nicely. However the product tends to slide and at times won't seal onto the breast correctly.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    When I had my baby, she was having issues latchIng on due to being in the nicu..and being fed through a tube up he nose. They recommended me using the nipple shield, I used it while I was there and even gave me one to take home. I love it, and so does my baby.. long story shor my dog got ahold of the one I got from the hospital and chewed it all up. I had to run to baby's r us and buy a new one.. I love this product it's amazing and it helps with no getting bloody or cracked nipples.
