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

submitted by Shadowscookie - 2 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!

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 - 8 months 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

1 out of 5 stars
Not My First Rodeo - 9 months ago
originally posted on medelabreastfeedingus.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.
1 reply from Your Customer Solutions Team team - 9 months ago
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. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly at 800-435-8316. Have a great day!

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.

These were a lifesaver when I started breastfeeding, especially when nipples were super sore. They also helped little one learn to latch. The only thing that was an issue was it would sometimes be difficult to hold them on during a feeding session as they fall off easily and would sometimes cause milk that gathered in the tip to spill.
