Thank Medela for making this product. It made breast-feeding a breeze and the plastic is very thin almost like nothing at all (Jun 15, 2017)
Ok so having to use a shield is not ideal but it helped me nurse while LO was in the nicu for a couple nights and a couple weeks home from the hospital before weaning off of it. Helped a ton!

The only nipple shield that my baby would actually latch onto. Gave good transfer of milk, and had a great shape for baby. Perfect size and healed cracked nipples without any creams or meds.

I needed this with all 3 of my kids. These helped me number my children for over 5 years combined. Without this, I wouldn’t be able to have a successful nursing releationship with my children.

This nipple shield saved my breastfeeding relationship with my son. I had very flat nipples and a jaundiced baby who we could not rouse long enough to get a good latch until my LC gave me this shield.

I don't think I would have continued breastfeeding if I wasn't introduced to a shield. This Shield was the only break my nipples had in the early days when they were sensitive and bleeding.

My daughter would only nurse with these. It didn't affect my supply at all, in fact I was able to pump close to 20oz per day and feed her mornings & nights with the shield. Had one in every bag!

DD has a lip tie. Dr recommended/DH bought. I wasn't impressed. It constantly fell off or curled back over DD face & still couldn't latch properly. I ended up just toughing it out even with a blowout!

This was a lifesaver for me and my daughter while we were starting with breastfeeding! I wish they came with a case like they do now, I was always losing them, especially during those late nights!

Great product if you have extreme nipple sensitivity. It is also helpful if you have any lesions/scabs/bites from baby. The shield protects your nipple while you are still able to feed baby.

I have been using this since my baby was 1 week old. She is now 6 months and I don't think I would've continued breastfeeding her if it weren't for this shield. She was having trouble latching.

These nipple shields helped my little one latch on better when she was a newborn and made breastfeeding so much easier for me. If it weren’t for this product, I would have given up breastfeeding.

I love-hate this shield. It definitely helped my NICU baby latch in the beginning, but the screams when it popped off? Pretty sure I have PTSD. Wish I didn't need it, but it, glad it was an option.

My daughter was born with lip & tongue ties, so it was suggested that we try a nipple shield. This shield has been the savior of our breastfeeding journey. It has helped her nurse and saved my nipples
