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 pain on one side while nursing and the shield made it more comfortable to nurse. It was a little cumbersome though. It wouldn't always stay where I needed it, despite warming it up and adding a little lanolin to "seal" it. I'm glad the need for it was temporary, especially for middle-of-the-night feedings.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    The nipple shield saved me from quitting breastfeeding all together. I was at the point where I thought of only exclusively pumping. My baby girl did great with latching in the beginning. A week later she would suddenly scream whenever she tried to latch on. Needless to say BF quickly went downhill. I researched things to help & found this. Saved us!!!! I suggest getting this size especially for a newborn since their mouths are so tiny. It worked better than the 24 mm for right now. Only negative thing is it can move and if there's milk it will leak out. All in all not bad at all for saving me from giving up!!!

          At the hospital my little one was having issues latching on, so they gave me one of these nipple shields. It works great, but I accidentally left it at my parents when we went to visit, so I had to buy another. Now I always keep an extra in the diaper bag just to be safe!

            A life saver! Great product that saves hours of frustration with latching. Even helps when you have sore nipples and allows them to heal. Love love love this product and would recommend it to anyone. Here's a little tip buy more than one because it's clear and difficult to find when you need it.

                Baby has latching difficulties due to inverted nipples. Product was first given to me in the hospital by a lactation consultant and since I have purchased 2 more. Makes breast feeding much easier for baby!

                      I have flat nipples & this nipple shield totally helped my baby to latch. It's a pain not to be able to just feed my baby right away, but at least with this shield, there's hope. In addition, I believe it protects from chapped / bleeding nipples.
