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.

Not best for newborns with small mouths

By New mom

from Glasgow ky

Verified Buyer

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

Had issues of nipples being sore to feed. Placing this one worked. Baby latched fine but got angry because the sizes available didn't fit. No size did. The nipple couldn't be pulled by the baby's mouth through the made spot to get milk. Baby got angry and wouldn't stayed latched because no milk was coming fast enough

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

I have very sensitive skin, my nipples were breaking and the skin was ripping off! The shield is the best. My baby can latch properly and the best part is that I do not feel pain!
It protects my nipple I really love this product I am so happy to use and I am glad we found this product!

If it wasn't for these I wouldn't be able to nurse my tongue tied son! Would recommend to anyone who has tongue tied babies or anyone who has sore nipples from nursing.

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

I purchased this per the recommendation of the lactation consultant at our pediatrician's office to use with our daughter who is 5 weeks premature. It has helped her to nurse without spending too many calories, which has allowed her to gain weight. I didn't use this with my older son, but would have probably has a much easier time nursing him if I had. Great product.

My little one had a difficult time latching on due to my flat nipples. The nipple shields have made it possible for me to nurse her despite that problem.

A must have!

By Inverted nipples

from Woodbridge, VA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

With my son, I was unaware that I had inverted nipples and would have difficulty breastfeeding. I researched online and found this product. Within days of using it my son was able to latch on and nurse normally. It also helped to prevent cracking and sore nipples. I'm four weeks away from having our daughter and I have bought this product so I'm prepared in hospital to nurse. I'd highly recommend this product to any woman with small or inverted nipples who still wants to breastfeed and to those who have sore or cracked nipples and need relief. Happy nursing!

This Product is a Life Saver!

By newmom

from Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

My son had issues latching from the moment he was born. I tried everything I could, even had the nurses trying to help me, but he just didn't seem to be getting it (we found out it's because my nipples are too flat). One day, my sister-in-law suggested nipple shields. I sent my husband to the store to get them since we were still in the hospital, and I was skeptical at first, but let me tell you, these are a life saver!!!

I still use one to feed my son, who is now three months old. I have tried to see if he'll latch without it, but we're still working on it. At this point, I don't care if he has to use one the entire time I'm breastfeeding because we found something that worked.

If your little one is having an issue with breastfeeding, I highly recommend these nipple shields!
