The Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield! A world 1st design made of 100% soft silicone. An extended teat puts space between your nipple & 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.

The Orthodontic Breastfeeding Nipple Shields have an opening that's 28mm in diameter and the Bottle Breastfeeding Nipple Shields have an opening that's 23mm in diameter for your nipple.
Includes one shield and a protective case for storage. 

This product is designed for mothers who are physically unable to breastfeed due to sore, cracked nipples and should only be used in the interim before returning to natural breastfeeding once your nipple has healed. If you are able to breastfeed successfully and experience slight discomfort, we suggest using the Haakaa traditional nipple shields as a protective alternative if your nipples become raw and sore.

Features

  • 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.

Cleaning and Care

Wash before and after each use. Although dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing in warm soapy water and rinsing and drying thoroughly. Do not use any bleach-based cleaners or tablets to sterilise or clean your Haakaa products. To sterilise, use a steam steriliser or boil in water for 2-3 minutes.

Caution: Check product condition regularly. Replace if this product shows any signs of damage. Do not store near any sharp objects. Only soft bristle brushes or soft sponges should be used to clean this product as hard scourers may scratch the surface. Children can choke on small objects if left unattended. This product is not a toy. Do not use this product for anything other than its intended purpose. Store product in a cool dry place and avoid direct sunlight. Excessive stretching may cause tearing.

Made breast feeding so much easier at the beginning

My baby wouldn’t breast feed as a newborn and only took bottles! This nipple shield made it easier for me to breast feed when I wanted to as my girl would take to it without any issues! It is super easy to use, easy to clean and made breast feeding so much easier for me and am glad I made the purchase!

Best nipple shield yet!

First time mum. I had a caesarean and my baby got used to bottle feeding. I also have have flat nipples. She never truly latched when using other nipple shields. After using the Haakaa Round Nipple Shield she latched straight away and will stay on with ease as long as she feels like it. Best of all, no more nipple pain on my end. I love how the Haakaa actually stays on, unlike other brands that slip off numerous times!

Saved my breastfeeding journey!!

First time mum here who had difficulty breastfeeding from day one with a shallow latch and strong suck - the worst nipple damage/pain, both sides cracked and bleeding which led to infections. I had 2 IBCLCs visit me at home to assist though when they left I just couldn't get bub to latch properly. I was mentally afraid to put bub back onto the breast. I did 5 weeks of exclusively pumping and bottle feeding (exhausting and always worried about overfeeding). This shield was my last resort and thank God it worked! No more pain, baby is so much more content with unlimited access to the boob - this product SAVED my breastfeeding journey and I'm so grateful I can continue to feed my baby breastmilk. Cannot recommend this product enough for mamas going through a similar experience.

Didn’t work for me

My baby wasn’t able to latch onto the nipple shield no matter what I did. I understand it works for some people but I guess it’s not for every baby
