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:

After multiple tries to breastfeed my son during our hospital stay, and no luck getting him to latch, the nurse gave me a Medela Nipple Shield, and my son latched on immediately. Those first attempts to breastfeed without the shield were overwhelming for me, and frustrating for my son, so I was grateful for the shield. I purchased an additional shield once I left the hospital so I could have back up. My only negative remark, is that it is difficult to get it to stay in place. Once my son latches there's no problem, but getting him on initially can be difficult sometimes if the shield shifts or falls off. I've tried wetting the shield before putting it on, which helps some. But there have been times where my son will get so frustrated waiting on me to get the shield just right, that feeding becomes a battle. The shifting of the shield can also be messy, as milk that collects in the shield will spill out. Without the shield my son wouldn't be able to breastfeed at all, so minus the one negative, it's been a lifesaver.

    Comments about Medela Contact Nipple Shield - 20MM:

    If I didn't find this product I would not have been able to continue to nurse my daughter! I had severely cracked and chapped nipples that brought me to tears any time my daughter would nurse. The cracks started in the hospital and opened up to sore shortly after being home. This product was the only thing that allowed me to continue to nurse. With this product, the nipple cream prescribed by my doctor I was able to nurse my daughter until she was 14 months old. I plan to use this with my second child right from the start hopefully to prevent the anguish I suffered with my initial attempt to breastfeed.

      I never new this product existed until I wound up having a preemie. I live the fact that its like a bottle nipple that rests on the nipple to try and stimulate natural nursing. I only wish it stays on better. My baby sometimes fights against nursing and I'm struggling to keep this product on while trying to calm by baby into nursing. Over all it's a good product.

        My baby was having latching problems. I got this nipple shield from the lactation consultant at the hospital and it was incredibly useful. Once I got home I ordered two other nipple shields from another brand and they were not nearly as good so went back to this one (totally worth the extra bucks)!

          A lactation consultant at the hospital gave me one of these nipple shields to help breastfeed my preemie. I loved it so much, I made my husband go buy a second one in case I lost the first. It has made breastfeeding a breeze and has been a great preventative measure in lessening nipple soreness.

            If there weren't any nipple shields breast feeding wouldn't have been possible.Thanks to the medela contact nipple shield not only am I giving my baby mommy's milk I'm also bonding with him. I love the fact it came in different sizes I was able to get the perfect one for me. I am also saving a ton of money by not having to pay for formula.

              My baby girl would not latch on and this shield worked perfectly. It's as if she was using the bottle. I love it and recommend it to any mom who has problem with their baby latching on.

                  Due to baby's difficulty latching on for feedings, the hospital provided me with a medium shield. Thinking the continued difficulty was due to it being too large, I got a small one. Unfortunately there's been no change. It makes it easier for the baby to latch, but falls off easily so if the baby moves a little, the shield comes off and you have to try to put it back on. Price was not bad and it could be useful for some mothers.
