The only way my baby can nurse as he cannot latch on his own. This brand as the best as it is thin silicone and has a cut out for baby's nose so they can smell mom for bonding. I do recommend seeing a lactation consultant for help with this though as getting the size and technique right can be tricky.

Great product! The hospital recommended this exact nipple shield to me to prevent any future bruised and cracked nipples. I keep one of these nipple shields on each floor of my house. My baby latches on great with the use of this shield and has no issues with nipple confusion when being bottle fed too. Would highly recommend this product.

I used nipple shields to start nursing two of my three children and think they are incredible. Do not think that a child will not be able to latch without one eventually. My daughter was born very premature and I used it for four months with her and then nursed her without it for an additional year. My husband and I are so grateful that we were told about this product.

My daughter was born very premature there for her mouth was not large enough to latch on the breast without the support of the nipple shield. This brand of nipple shield offers a more flexible shield than its competitors. It has allowed me to breast-feed a baby that I did not think I would be able to breast-feed. I am very thankful for that! Through Well.ca I received this nipple shield in perfect condition and very quickly.

Saved our breastfeeding relationship! My nipples were extremely damaged the first few days after she was born and the shield helped heal. She's only 4 weeks now and we haven't fully weaned off the shield yet but I have excellent supply and she's gaining lots of weight so no rush yet since it's working. I try every feed to get her to latch without and she does for a bit so I just keep trying to increase the time
