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:

I had trouble breastfeeding my first child and it was VERY PAINFUL!! This was given to me by my lactation nurse and it worked like a charm. It's hard to keep on, but loosen it up with some warm water and add a smidgen of the lanolin cream to help it stick on and you're good to go!

Great for flat nipples, can ween off later

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

I have flat nipples and this was the only thing that got my son to latch. Using it has drawn out my nipples and now (after less than a week) I need the shield about 70% of the time. I started out removing the shield about 5 minutes into nursing and he will usually latch on to just the breast after that. If he's in a really good mood I can get him to latch directly to the breast to start with.

I imagine nursing would have been a frustrating nightmare without this. Glad a friend recommended it.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    I love this product! These shields are easy to use, but the best part is my son had no issues switching to them when I needed them for my cracked nipple. He could go from one side (just my nipple) to the other side with the shield without any problems! Another great thing about this product is that it sped up my recovery time.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    My baby can't latch without a nipple shield and many places only carry once size, we have several of the size small shields and will probably end up buying more because they are a bit too easy to lose.
