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:

Using this to help my baby latch for nursing. My baby has trouble latching on one of my breast for some reason. My friend gave me a bigger shield but it was not working. So I purchased this one and it has helped tremendously.

This shield helped my son latch on, and I highly recommend to anyone having issues with your baby latching on. He would be so frustrated and cry when trying to nurse, and this shield helped solve that problem.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield 20MM:

    I gave birth to premature twins. They were very small and didn't have very strong jaw muscles. They had difficulty latching directly to me due to their size but with the nipple shield, they had a little more success.

        My baby has an issue with latching, which has left my nipples cracked and raw. The shield was recommended and has really helped with allowing my nipples to heal while still breastfeeding.

          My baby and I were struggling with an improper latch and these helped my infant by giving a more consistent shape to practice with. We don't even have to use these full time, but keep them around just in case. Durable and hold up just fine in a sterilizer.

          They can also be a lifesaver if dealing with soreness or sensitivity when nursing.

          My newborn needed supplements in the hospital. After having a bottle he didn't want to go back to breastfeeding when my milk came in. This item helped him latch and get him breastfeeding again.
