Rated 5 out of 5 by from Latch problems My baby was having latch problems from birth, she wouldn’t open wide enough to get a deep latch. The hospital provided me with at 20mm and I used that for 3 weeks and it worked great but now I am going to try and ween her off the shield all together so I bought this 16mm and it works great too. I would say if you are having latch problems or have flat/inverted nipples you should buy one or two of these. They are 100% worth it. Do not give up on breastfeeding! It’s hard mentally and physically especially when baby has latch problems and is hurting your nipples but breastfeeding is so worth it! If you’re having problems buy a shield and have a Lactation consultant teach you how to use it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weaned my baby ONTO breastfeeding. Started with a bottle so when I decided to try breastfeeding she rejected it. But with the segue with the shield I was actually able to get her to take the breast after about 3 weeks. Wonder cure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great transition method! Life saver for my Newborn I bought this product to help transition from the shield to the breast. I was using the 24 mm medium size. The typical size purchased at the stores. It was doing its job but the size was making it difficult for my NB to latch onto me naturally without the use of the shield. The 16mm extra small size got her to transition faster. The extra small is more realistic for women with flat or inverted nipples. Its much smaller allowing the baby a more successful transition from the shield to a non typical breast (flat or inverted nipples) The larger sizes are too much like a bottle nipple and NB babies develop a lazy latch. I am so glad I ordered the extra small!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get Sizing Right! The sizes for these nipple things are the worst. I never know quite what size I fit. I had originally ordered the S but it bruised my nipple after nursing since it was too big. After I tried the XS, it fit perfect. It's enables my little tongue tied baby to nurse. Yay!

Breast shield is not wanting to stay in place. Got a medium from the hospital. So while researching how size is picked I've read that for the pump it's based on nipple base and for the shield it's based on babies mouth . please help me understand .

Asked by: Rynn
Hi Rynn--- 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. Due to this, the size of the Contact Nipple Shield you'll need may vary greatly from the breast shield size you currently use. Placing some breast milk or Tender Care Lanolin on the outer edge of the nipple shield (not inside the opening) can often times help it to stay in place. Please consider also chatting with us on our website if you have any questions. We'd be happy to help!
