Regretful purchase. Would love a refund. I think people need to know before purchasing that this is only for women with extremely long nipples.
I suffered from inverted nipples and badly grazed nipples making breastfeeding a very painful experience but when I tried the haakaa shield my baby attached straight away and I had no pan what so ever! I would Highly recommended!
Omg this shield is the greatest thing that ever happened to me I just ordered two more in case I lose it. You still get the ‘feeling’ of breastfeeding (let down/bonding but zero pain). I have a newborn and was experiencing the same issues I had breastfeeding my now three year old.. ineffective latch (strong and bitey). Tried other shields, lactation consultants, chirporactors. Finally I have a solution. I’m so so happy.
It’s a great idea for people transitioning to the bottle or with super sore nipples if you can get it to flow, for me baby tried and tried but couldn’t get a steady flow and ended up just taking it off and bearing the pain. Like I said it is probably a life saver for some, just not for us!
Completely solved my feeding issues. Breastfeeding was just too painful for me and these shields helped me be able to breastfeed without the pain! Would 100% recommend to other mums having difficulties
