  • These SAVED me while I healing after getting LO's tongue tie corrected! Unfortunately the largest size I could find was 24mm which was too small for me, but I was still able to nurse LO well. Nov 16, 2020

  • I used this with my daughter for the first 6 months and it was a lifesaver! I am now using it again with my nicu baby and it has helped so much!! Nov 14, 2020

  • I only used this for a couple weeks, but it was a huge lifesaver. Once you baby gets used to nursing, make sure to try nursing without the shield. My pediatrician recommended this. Oct 10, 2020

  • My son was born with a recessed chin and had a difficult time latching. This helped him latch and be able to continue breastfeeding. I am so thankful! Oct 02, 2020

  • Love son just had trouble latching Sep 25, 2020

  • These worked great for sore nipples. And sterilized well. Would recommend. Sep 01, 2020

  • Didn’t work for me. Suction to breast horrible. I was given this by lactation consultant. I ended up exclusively pumping after trying everything. Baby tried to latch months later and same problem Aug 24, 2020

  • Helped my 2yo latch when he got confusion at the start of our journey. But it can be messy and get milk everywhere Aug 23, 2020

  • I tried using this in the hospital when my son was born. Didn’t really work for me or him. Aug 20, 2020

  • This was a lifesaver when babes was first born. I doubt we would have succeeded in our breastfeeding journey without it. Aug 16, 2020

  • Used this with each of my tongue tied kids until they learned to nurse efficiently. Pretty easy and straightforward to use. Aug 04, 2020

  • Helpful those first few weeks when my son refused to latch and we were getting the hang of breastfeeding. These were a lifesaver Jul 23, 2020

  • Got the job done but I did not like that there isn’t a cut off section to allow baby to breath. I had to hold my breast and push the shield inward to prevent from blocking my LO’s nostrils. Jul 22, 2020

    Make sure you dry your skin and the product prior to latching these on. Otherwise, they might get loose and worst of all cause infection and rash. Jun 27, 2020

  • My baby did not like nursing with this style shield. We used the Medela shield with the nose cutout and she preferred that. Noticed the nipples are shaped slightly differently Jun 25, 2020

  • My daughter had a shallow latch since birth and the Medela nipple shield saved my nipples from the excruciating pain. To note they also made it a lot easier for my daughter to latch on. May 14, 2020

    Perfect to prevent chaffing- I used for awhile when my nipples got a little raw in the beginning stages and then again when baby started teething. They were amazing. May 03, 2020

  • Saved my first breasting journey Apr 30, 2020

  • I bought this product after having some trouble with one breast when nursing and getting a recommendation, but it did the opposite of help. I wish I could’ve returned them. Not a successful effort. Apr 23, 2020

  • I’m not sure how I would’ve breastfed without these. Baby wouldn’t latch without them for like 6 weeks. They also really helped with the discomfort of breastfeeding while your nipples toughen up. Apr 22, 2020

  • This is a life safer after you first start breastfeeding and the nips are sore and cracked. I was able to alternate feedings and allow things to heal. LO didn't mind at all and had no issues switching Apr 16, 2020

  • This help me when I first started breastfeeding. My son latch to it much easier then my nipple. A few weeks later he was able to latched to me by itself. Apr 15, 2020

  • Helped with latching issues and nipple pain! Couldn’t get through breastfeeding without it. Mar 31, 2020

  • Used these when baby was in the nicu and they were hard to keep on while nursing. It got very frustrating during an already hectic time. Mar 11, 2020

  • I have tried several nipple shield brands and I always end up going back to this brand. These are perfect for those first few weeks for nursing when it really hurts! Mar 09, 2020

  • My favorite nipple shield. Easy to apply on and great suction for the baby. I suggest the set of 2 that comes with a case. Mar 06, 2020

  • This nipple shield really saved me during my first week of breastfeeding. It was given to me in the hospital when breastfeeding was most painful, and really helped get us off to a good start! Mar 06, 2020

  • Used these when I first started breastfeeding and they caused more harm than good (cracked nipples, thrush, etc.). May be right for some moms but not me Feb 24, 2020

  • My baby was 5 weeks early, so this was a must for us! Allowed him to be able to effectively eat and only be in the nicu 5 days! Feb 23, 2020

  • The lactation specialist gave me this in the hospital to help by preemie baby latch. It made things so much easier! Feb 14, 2020

  • This was a lifesaver as a first time mom, I used it for several weeks and it helped with latching and comfort. Feb 13, 2020

  • I would highly recommend if you have flat or inverted nipples. My l.o. latched right away and it helped pull my nipples out after a month or so of use. Feb 12, 2020

  • I would not have been able to take on breastfeeding without this. Feb 11, 2020

    • Erin C.
    • Vernon, Connecticut

    Great for babies who are having a tough time and need help. Stay on great also. Feb 09, 2020

  • I liked these full circles better than the halves. Seemed easier to put on. Feb 08, 2020

  • The standard size to use for flat nipples. Baby was able to latch and it has made my breastfeeding journey a lot better. Just dont forget them at home in outings! Feb 07, 2020

  • Helped with feeding when I got really sore and chapped. Allowed me to still breast feed but give my nipples a break for a feeding or two. Stayed on and easy to clean. Jan 20, 2020

    These saved my breastfeeding journey. I have flat nipples, so this was essential in the beginning stages, when my tiny 6lb baby couldn't latch. Admittedly, hard to wean off though! Jan 14, 2020

    • Iris D.

    I have these and they help! I wish I would have bought these before giving birth and starting to breast feed. It helps with not getting a sore nipple or bleeding Jan 05, 2020

    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.
