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.

Available with a round or triangle base, the Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield allows all mums to experience the beauty of breastfeeding without the worry of discomfort and pain! The round base is larger and suctions on more easily, making it more suited for those who are new to using nipple shields. The triangle base is smaller, but allows for more skin-to-skin contact, making it more suited for those who are more experienced with using nipple shields.

We offer two teat shapes: the orthodontic teat and the nipple teat. The orthodontic teat is thumb-shaped to replicate the shape of a mother's nipple during breastfeeding, making it more readily accepted by your baby. The nipple teat replicates the silicone teat of a baby bottle and is better suited to help your baby transition from breast to bottle.

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.

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.

Includes one shield and a protective case for storage.

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.

Quite good

Very good at relieving pain, quite easy to use but difficult to position baby so far out from your chest. The orthodontic shield has a large space to protect your nipple, mich like a bottle teat.

Big help

I have trouble getting my baby to latch properly so he was losing weight. This has been a big help to help him mostly breastfeed and help come off the bottle more

Haven’t used but love nipple shields

Haven’t used yet as the hospital fitted me with another brand. Would recommend holding off till after baby born to buy a nipple shield and get properly measured/advised by midwife. Nipple shields have saved my breastfeeding journey- love!

Hi Nicole
The Haakaa is a one size fits all approach to their Nipple Shields and Pumps so the size of your breasts and Nipples don't need to be measured. This makes the whole process of choosing the correct Nipple Shield a lot easier :)
