                If you really need a nipple shield to help establish nursing, this is the one you'll likely get. It has enough space to hold onto to put it in place but has a nice cutout so that the baby gets that extra contact with you. It's silicon and easy to wash. Not much you can say about it except that with the help of a good lactation consultant, this tiny thing could save your nursing relationship! As a result, as much as I didn't want to use it, I had to give it 5 stars!

                  tried this for my yeast breast infection for relief of pain of nursing, but it didnt really work for us. My son looked at me like i was crazy (8 months) and my nipple is too small to really get into the large space allowed for ladies with bigger nips than me!

                    As a mom who has used nipple shields to help my preemies latch, I was disappointed in the new shape of Medela's nipple shield.  I first used the old design with my son who was tongue tied, and it worked really well.  I used them again for our 27 week preemie daughter with great success.  The LC in the NICU showed me this new design and recommended the old design but gave me both to try.  The old design worked well, but this design didn't.  It rubbed me raw on the notched side.  I tried...

                      I only used this because I had a severe open sore that took several weeks to heal and when I started to breastfeed again I had to use this.  It helped me get the baby back on the breast without continuing to open the wound.  Up to that point I was hand expressing only (YIKES).  Needs to come with a case or something cause you can easily lose this sucker, haha.

                        These are way overdiagnosed.  They are a beast to wean from if your baby ever can wean from them.  My first son was severely tongue tied and couldn't latch at all.  We had to wait until we were allowed to leave the hospital plus an extra day to get in to an Ear Nose and Throat doctor to clip his frenulum.  He was super nipple confused by then.  I saw an IBCLC and she gave me the older version of these that the silicone goes in a full circle.  I lost one and wanted to have one in my dia...
