Q: I can’t remember how the sizing goes is the 24mm smaller or the 20mm?

submitted by Shadowscookie - 3 years ago
  • A: The 20mm is smaller than the 24mm. It is best that you consult a lactation professional for assistance in finding the correct size. The Nipple Shield sizing will depend on the size of the infant's mouth as well as the anatomy of your breast. Have a great day!

They don't stay on if you have a larger bust

ARaye - 3 days ago
These don’t stay on. I have a larger bust (38 DDD postpartum), so maybe that’s why. But they don’t stay on AT ALL. Very disappointed. My baby lached right away after delivery, but he unfortunately had to go to NICU and he’s still there 1 month later, so he of course is on a bottle now while I pump. He now won’t breastfeed (I’m hoping that changes once he’s home, but I don’t know). I tried these with the lactation consultant and it seemed for a moment it would work, he seemed interested. But like I said, they wouldn’t stay on so he screamed and we went back to the bottle.

Hiba - 5 months ago
These are great! Both my babies have had issues with latching but instantly resolved the problem the minute I started using these. It’s of course annoying to always have to use to breastfeed but it’s better than not being able to breastfeed and pump all the time.

Life saver

AS - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
These were a life saver as I got used to breastfeeding. Used them every time I fed for probably the first 3-4 months. Helped tremendously and not sure I would still be breastfeeding if I hadn’t used these. Was given one in the hospital and was told to use it as a lady resort but I used it every feed. Do whatever makes you most comfortable! Your baby is going to do great wether you use formula or breast milk. Do what works for you and your baby but I found these to be so helpful with our breast feeding journey! I would place in boiling water after every use and let it air dry. There world be times it would have a film on it and it wouldn’t stick as well so I would clean really well with a bristle brush then put in boiling water to sanitize. Used these when both baby and I had thrush to put some barrier between passing it back and forth

MegR - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
These for sure saved my breastfeeding journey for the first two months of my girl’s life. We didn’t know it was her tongue tie that was causing her to reject my natural breasts, and we were given these in the hospital to help. She was able to breastfeed and gain weight thanks to these!! Since getting her tie clipped we have been able to get latched without them. Be sure to choose the correct size too, as she rejected the smaller ones and thrived with the 24 mm!!

Great product!! Baby preferred bottle over breasts and you could tell by the poor latching and semi disgusted look on his face wherever I breastfed him lol. He instantly took to the breasts after using these shields. This may have just saved our breastfeeding journey!!

I was ready to give up breastfeeding the first night at home. My mom bought these for me and they saved my breastfeeding journey. Unfortunately I lost both of them and my husband went to buy me new ones, but got the lansinoh ones. They were horrible! I mean, they got the job done, but the medela ones are 1000x better!!

This product saved my breastfeeding experience with my newborn. My newborn was having a hard time latching, and as soon as I put these on, my baby has no issues. She’s able to breast feed, and we’re able to bond. I bought 3 sets just in case because they need to be washed, of course, and they’re just handy to have around for feeding. Highly recommend!!

Would be nice if these things didn’t always fall off! Constantly falling off or being knocked ooff. You would think how pricey they are they would actually stay on. Super annoying! Plus I’m constantly loosing them. Would be nice if they weren’t clear so it’s easier to find.

Happy Mom - 2 years ago
My baby spent 5 days in the NICU and had to be bottle fed to get enough calories for strength. I was given this by the lactation consultant. This is so similar to a bottle that he latched on right away for the whole feed. If you find yourself needing this product and are able to order several, I would recommend it so you have a stash and can just wash all of them at a convenient time during the day. Also good to have a couple extras in case you can’t find one and some for the diaper bag. I am so grateful for this product!

Doesn’t offer same sizes as flanges

Not My First Rodeo - 2 years ago
originally posted on medela.com
Why are these are not offered in the same sizes as the flanges? I use 27 mm flanges and the 24 mm Nicole shield is very obviously too small for me. I don’t know how they can advertise this as “sizes for all women” when they don’t make them in the larger sizes. Very disappointed.

Hi Not My First Rodeo--- We appreciate your honest feedback and will forward your comment to our product team. It is best to consult a lactation professional for assistance in finding the correct size. The Nipple Shield sizing will depend on the size of the infant's mouth as well as the anatomy of your breast. Due to this, the size of the Contact Nipple Shield you'll need may vary greatly from the breast shield size you currently use.

I am I lucky fir this product. Without it, I would not have been able to breast-feed, since baby was unable to latch to me naturally. Easy to clean and the case helps me find it, since the actual shield is made of a clear material that is easy to lose.
