Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield


The Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield is a world-first design made of 100% soft silicone, with an extended teat that puts space between your nipple and your baby’s mouth.

If your little one bites down, pulls away, or if you have inverted or cracked nipples, you will still be able to breastfeed with ease and comfort. Our Nipple Shields suction onto your breast, giving you a hands-free breastfeeding experience.

Available in a round or butterfly shape, the Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield allows all mums to experience the beauty of breastfeeding without the worry of discomfort and pain!

Includes one shield (butterfly or round) and a protective case for storage. 


  • Patented one-piece design with no joints, cracks or edges.
  • Nipple design allows babies to mimic a natural sucking rhythm, making it easier for babies that have difficulty latching.
  • Suctions on to all breast shapes, making it easier for new mums to use and enjoy a hands-free breastfeeding experience.
  • The anti-slip ridged outer edge make the nipple shield easier to hold while the baby is feeding.
  • Anti-colic and variable flow nipple allows baby to drink continuously without gasping for air or drinking bubbles and prevents them from choking if milk flows too fast.
  • Space between mum’s nipple and the nipple shield head prevents baby from biting the nipple.
  • BPA, PVC and phthalate-free.

Fantastic device!

Love this nipple shield and in particular the idea of it as working like the breast pump! My little one has yet to need it however we have given it a try and he took to the teat straight away. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the correct level of suction to keep the shield on can be hard to balance with feeling like it’s too much. Additionally, it can be hard for my son to extract the milk from the teat, meaning he used it more like a dummy when we tried, but that’s nothing against the design, just something we will work on over time. Fantastic investment.

Didn’t work for me

I tried this shield as I was experiencing pain whilst breastfeeding, but found it did not work at all. I couldn’t get the shield to stay on, and then I couldn’t get Bub to take to it. Have tried a few times, even tried filling the shield with milk to entice Bub, but no good, so unfortunately I have now given up. I really wanted it to work as I often get nipple pain from feeding and it seemed like a solution to my issues, but this product just wasn’t for me. Bub takes conventional nipple shields but doesn’t like the shape of this one.

Hi Lauren Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the butterfly nipple shield was not suitable for you and your baby. The butterfly shape is better suited when traditional shields have been successful for a period to time as it does allow for more skin to skin. Where as the round shape does have a stronger suction and can be easier to use in some instances. If you ever need help choosing which products would be suited to your needs please feel free to contact us at info@milkbarbreastpumps.com.au Thanks Sarah

This shield has been a life saver for my sore nipples!! Once the let down happens, this nipple shield is amazing and by far the best on the market. My little one no longer has any direct contact with my nipple which has allowed then to heal and no longer feel pain when brushed by clothing while allowing us to continue our breast feeding journey.

I wish I had had this shield for my first born.

Helpful for my premie baby

This has been great for my premie baby who has taken a while to work out breast feeding. I find normal nipple shields too painful due to poor latching, but have had no issues with this one. Plus I can actually see he is getting milk in, which is really reassuring for me.

Better for over abundant milk supple

Great product for if you have an over abundant milk supply. I was having a lot of pain Breastfeeding naturally so tried this shield, my babe latched on no problem but she just seemed to suck for dear life to only get a few drops of milk then got frustrated and stopped so we were unable to continue using it. I have enough milk to feed her but not an over abundance like some women. My breasts never leak and I never have to express after feeds to take the pressure off. I think this shield would be perfect for women with a large supply of milk but no so great for us mums who don't.

Sorry to hear that you are having issues feeding when using the breast shield. I recommend expressing some milk into the nipple shield and gentle massage toward the nipple to help with let down. Nipple shields can be a life saver for painful feeding. I hope this helps :) Thanks Sarah
