I’ve been struggling with the thin medela nipple shields- between my nipples and our babies lip tie and poor sucking reflex, breastfeeding has been frustrating and impossible.
Because of this bad boy, I might actually be able to stop exclusively pumping! He took the breast for a half hour for the first time ever and was actually getting milk.
It’s an absolute life saver.
When my little boy started cluster feeding I almost gave up breastfeeding because of my cracked nipples and the subsequent pain but this shield made it so I could keep going! 100% recommend!
We have been using the shield for 2 weeks now with my 4 week old as he struggles with my fast flow and it allows as to feed without being covered in milk and continuously relatching him and taking him hours to feed. He now can feed in 20 minutes. However the last few days the shield suction hurts and I constantly have to release it and it's casing redness on my nipples.
The suction doesn’t work well for me.
So bub is literally just been sucking air.
Would be good if there’s a video to show how it is done.
I have purchased many of shields this one is by far the best. It doesn't fall off, protects the nipple and I just the best
