Medela Contact Nipple Shield enables continued breastfeeding without interruption until these problems are resolved. Use under the guidance of a healthcare professional.

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!

This was the only way I was able to breastfeed...my baby didn't have any issues and I didn't have any nipple issues or pain. I believe it's a must have!

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

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.

These helped protect sore nipples, they just didn't help with latching, and my fussy baby knocks them right off before I can even get them into her mouth.

We appreciate your feedback and will pass it along to the appropriate team.

If you’re having a hard time with the latch or having pain definitely try this shield. There might be some negative opinions out there about using shields but don’t listen. Do what is best for you and your baby. And if using a shield is getting your baby fed that is all that matters. Using a shield will not affect your milk supply at all!! I freeze and store 25 oz a day extra. Basically enough for twins and I only have one. And I use the shield with every single feeding and have since he was 2 weeks old. He is now 4 months. Highly recommend.

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!
