  • SO helpful when my baby was learning to latch Jun 26, 2024

    • Karla G.
    • Sacramento, California

    Used this with my first. Great option if its needed. Mar 11, 2024

  • Maybe I wasn't using them correctly but I didn't find them to be helpful Mar 09, 2024

    • Tara T.
    • Mehoopany, Pennsylvania

    Good in theory but almost impossible to get to stay in breast especially with a squirmy baby Feb 26, 2024

  • Lifesaver for my tongue tied baby. Wish packs came with more. Feb 23, 2024

  • I never was able to get this to work well with my body. Feb 22, 2024

  • Love this! Used it to start my breastfeeding journey so my baby could latch and it worked great! Still use it when I have a cracked nipple or feeling extra tender and it’s great to have Feb 13, 2024

    got this as a registry gift. unfortunately didn't work for me. I guess it depends on your nipple size. Feb 05, 2024

    • Emily J.
    • Highland City, Florida

    Before my newborn had his tongue tie released this was the only way he would latch! I recommend to any mom trying everything she can Feb 05, 2024

    • Amber G.
    • Apple Valley, California

    These work great to help with any pain Feb 05, 2024

  • I recommend these! My baby wouldn’t latch, at least not well, but with this shield he latched right on and has been able to ever since! It really helped me to be able to breast feed and is comfortable Feb 03, 2024

  • This was a life saver for me with my first baby who was a preemie and had latch issues the first few days. They gave me one in the hospital and it helped us get off to a great start with breastfeeding Jan 21, 2024

  • Prior to having my first I never even knew these were a thing and now, pregnant with my fourth, they are on my must have list. I use them in the beginning helping baby to latch and then anytime I need Jan 02, 2024

  • Worked well in the early days when latch was poor Jan 02, 2024

  • Was helpful for the first few weeks of breastfeeding when my baby struggled to latch properly. This allowed me to heal and still breastfeed. Be sure to measure your nipples to buy the right size Dec 22, 2023

  • I used this in the hospital when we struggled with a latch. Me and the nurses could not get it to stay on and my baby couldn’t latch onto it either. Dec 05, 2023

  • Easy to lose Nov 06, 2023

  • Are you ready to give up breastfeeding like I was? Try this first and give it a shot. I was able to cont. breastfeeding and after two months, was able to remove the shield and still going w/ no pain! Oct 26, 2023

  • These helped my baby latch for the first month or two. Not ideal, but it helped her to keep going. These were essential in the early days while we established breastfeeding. Oct 25, 2023

  • Difficult to use personally Also make sure you size your nipples before purchasing to get correct size for comfort and good milk transfer Sep 23, 2023

    I was not a fan. It may have been human error, but these were not comfortable and did not necessarily help with painful matching. They easily slid off also. Sep 01, 2023

  • This nipple shield enabled me to get my baby to latch. She has a lip tie, tongue tie, and a high palate, so latching without this was very challenging. Aug 27, 2023

  • These definitely saved my breastfeeding journey. I had to use these for about 2 weeks before my nipple was conditioned perfectly to nurse without them. Aug 20, 2023

  • My baby had latching issues and we tried this shield. It was hit or miss but I think because my daughter was stubborn and later found had a small tongue tie. Aug 15, 2023

    • Erin E.
    • Sioux Falls, South Dakota

    My baby could never latch without a shield, these did the trick. Aug 13, 2023

  • I loved these with my first! Much needed. It helped during the beginning months when cracked and sore nipples are most common. Aug 04, 2023

  • I started using nipple shields when my little one was in the NICU. The shield really helped him feed more easily in his beginning few weeks of life. Aug 03, 2023

  • Really saved my breastfeeding journey! Was recommended by my lactation consultant when I was dealing with a shallow latch. I now recommend them to other moms who are dealing with the same thing. Jul 28, 2023

  • Never knew these existed until my Lact. Cons. showed them to me. A life saver when I felt like mine were going to fall off as a FTM w/a newborn. Jul 27, 2023

  • My first baby this was a life saver, she couldn't match and this allowed us to get her BF and I was able to ween her off after a couple months. Jul 07, 2023

  • I didn’t mind these shields. My biggest complaint is they slip around easy. I don’t know if that’s user error on my part, I’d try my best to get them ‘suctioned’ on but they did help with the pain. Jul 07, 2023

    Why weeLove Milkflow Lactation Cookies:

    In case you need a valid excuse to eat cookies, here’s a really good one: boosting milk supply. Nursing moms need to fuel their bodies to keep up with the demands of milk production and new parenthood. (If you’ve been wearing the same pants for three days—we get it, girl!) While lactation teas, capsules and powders aren’t for everybody, cookies most certainly are.

    Milkflow™ from UpSpring created the first ever lactation cookies made with the dream team of ingredients: Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle. These two essentials work together to help naturally promote breast milk supply in those early days, during your baby’s growth spurts (when you’re glued to the glider for feedings!), and pumping sessions.

    Available in Oatmeal Raisin and Double Chocolate Chip, cookies are non-GMO and made in the USA with all natural ingredients. These tasty treats come in packs of two—perfect for tossing in your diaper bag for a healthy snack on the go. Each box comes with 10 packs (20 cookies total), so you’ll be able to keep your milk production going strong while keeping “Hangry Mom Running Errands” at bay. It’s a win-win.
