Life saver when in pain

I used these shields on and off for the first weeks of breast feeding as we all go through cracked nipples and tenderness they were great but just a tad slippery once the milk flow gets going i found my daughter would latch and she would suck them right off

Getting the latch on can be frustrating (for mum and baby) as the nipple protector is very long initially with air in the end so it can be fiddly trying to get milk in the end instead of air so sometimes it's easier to use a sticking plaster if it's a bite cut on the base of the nipple.
Thin, provide good protection for cracked nipples
Moves out of position easily and lets in a lot of air if not held in place. Doesn't provide as good a drainage as skin on skin. Some babies can really resist the change in texture and insist on being fed without it.

i have used these several times over the years having had lots of mastits and thrush of the nipples, however they are quite expensive for something that does not last very well. They shrivel up and lose their shape when they are washed and sterilsed so from that perspective they are not great..but they do the job!
they are helpful when you have cracked nipples..thrush etc..they are made froma nice soft pproduct and bubs don't seem to notice that they are there
Costly and they do not last very long..only two sizes that i have ever seen which include really small and really large

I might try out other brands of nipple shields, but for now, this brand is making breastfeeding my little boy possible.
These were a life saver for me! My little boy had a lot of attachment problems and caused a lot of nipple damage. My midwife recommended these nipple shileds and i can finally breast feed my baby!
Hard to attach to the breast so that they stay on properly! The baby seems to be bothered by the shape, size and taste of the shiled at first, but quickly adjusts.
Being made of clear silicone, hard to see the shield if you drop it.
