These are amazing! My baby has refused to breast feed ever since he was born. He’s a month old today and we bought these to try and he has done amazing with them. They made it so much easier for him to latch. I am so thankful!

I bought this not that long ago and I had a hard time with my daughter latching on to my nipples it was very painful and when I bought this it helped me tremendously I went to pumping only because of how sensitive my nipples were and when I bought the nipple shield and put it on and went to latch her again but for the first time with the shield I could hardly tell she was on my nipple amazing thing to buy if u have sensitive nipples and that’s the only reason why u can’t breast feed the nipple shield is well worth it now I pump and latch my daughter

Great shield

I first used this shield as my baby had a tongue tie and had trouble latching. But even after it was clipped, I still continue using it because it makes it easier for my baby to latch and it protects my nipple from getting sore. I especially like that it is designed so my baby can breath freely through the side opening.

So I have flat nipples. Baby would barely latch and then would start crying in frustration. My husband brought this home and 5 minutes later my baby is firmly latched and eats for 30 minutes straight. Life saver!

For those who really want to breastfeed this is for you moms. My baby was laching perfectly fine but than the nurse gave him a bottle and oh boy it changed the game on me. I got this nipple shield and he laches on perfectly now we are working to go natural without it. Great way to support the breastfeeding mamas.

These literally saved me from giving up. Baby was having a hard time latching, wouldn’t stay latched once she did it right because of my fast let-down. I was at my wits end and did an online search for one last way to make it work because the doctor was starting to push me into formulas,I gave these a shot on a whim, and am now doing great, such peace of mind, I cried when she successfully latched with the first try and fed for about 13 minutes straight, it saved me from giving up.

My daughter is only a few days old and we have been struggling to breastfeed. Bought these last night and have not had an issue since. She latches right on now and I feel she gets more milk then just from the bare nipple alone. Very happy with my purchase!

I honestly could not have continued breastfeeding without it. Helps especially when you have inverted nipples. After a few days with it baby was able to latch on her own. Also helps give your nipples a break if they’re cracked or sore.

Get Sizing Right!

The sizes for these nipple things are the worst. I never know quite what size I fit. I had originally ordered the S but it bruised my nipple after nursing since it was too big. After I tried the XS, it fit perfect. It's enables my little tongue tied baby to nurse. Yay!
1 reply from Customer Service team - 5 years ago
We're happy you found the perfect size. The size of the Nipple Shield is determined by the size of the baby's mouth. We recommend consulting a Lactation Consultant for proper sizing. Thank you for sharing your feedback with other parents!

These saved my sanity!!

After suffering from a failed breastfeeding attempt with my daughter three years ago (in short, I was in agony, I'll spare all of you the gory details), I was skeptical about it working a second time with my newborn son. The hospital where he was born handed them out for moms hoping to breastfeed. I decided to give it a try on Day 1 to attack the problems I had before they start. I was extremely surprised I could breastfeed without any of the pain I had experienced before. My son also took to latching on to them without ANY problems. Sure we both squirmed and wiggled a bit to find the best latch-on position but doesn't every mom go through that? Now, I've got a pair at home and a pair in my purse for breastfeeding on the go. I'm so happy to be able to experience pain-free breastfeeding with my son. User tip: New moms and/or moms who've suffered, but want to give it a try with their other children: buy them and have them in your hospital bag to use the moment things get painful. Just be sure to buy the right size for you! I had bought small not knowing that there were other sizes and the hospital was able to provide me with a new pair in the right size. In short: this product saved my sanity and quite possibly helped me avoid severe postpartum depression. Thank you SO much!!!

GAME CHANGER

Happy mom - 5 years ago
This thing is MAGIC! My newborn had trouble latching since birth and would scream from frustration whenever I tried to put him on the breast. It broke my heart since I had high hopes to breastfeed, so after some research I came across this shield and went to the nearest target and crossed my fingers. He had been bottle fed for two weeks so I was a bit worried about nipple confusion, but as soon as I put it on BOOM he latched on and started feeding immediately! It is very thin and flexible which helps it stick on the breast without shifting, unless baby moves it but it’s not a big issue. I purchased the 20 mm since I wasn’t sure if the sizing was based on nipple size or nipple flow, but for reference I’m a 34 C and the flow seems to be slow which works perfect for my baby. Best $10 spent!

First Time Mom - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
I tried other shields but my baby did not latch. My baby used this shield (size small) for almost 4 months. I was worried that she would not wean off it because I didn’t try to wean her off it early on as recommended. I was just happy that she latched and I could feed her. I would try every so often and one day she fed without it. This shield will be in my hospital bag for my next baby.

Latch problems

5 out of 5 stars
Kasey - 5 years ago
originally posted on medelabreastfeedingus.com
My baby was having latch problems from birth, she wouldn’t open wide enough to get a deep latch. The hospital provided me with at 20mm and I used that for 3 weeks and it worked great but now I am going to try and ween her off the shield all together so I bought this 16mm and it works great too. I would say if you are having latch problems or have flat/inverted nipples you should buy one or two of these. They are 100% worth it. Do not give up on breastfeeding! It’s hard mentally and physically especially when baby has latch problems and is hurting your nipples but breastfeeding is so worth it! If you’re having problems buy a shield and have a Lactation consultant teach you how to use it :)

This product is my saving grace. We wouldn't have been able to breastfeed without it. I still use it every time and it's so great! It's easy to put on and my baby latches on really well and can easily adapt between this and the bottle nipple. If you're struggling to breastfeed, give this a try!

Started with a bottle so when I decided to try breastfeeding she rejected it. But with the segue with the shield I was actually able to get her to take the breast after about 3 weeks. Wonder cure!
