More Information

  • How to Use
    - Always wash the nipple shield in hot soapy water and rinse in hot water before and after use.
    - Place the nipple shield in hot water prior to nursing. This makes the shield more pliable and adhere to the breast better. A small amount of lanolin cream under the rim, but not in the nipple portion, may also help it adhere to the breast.
    - Handle the nipple shield by the rim. Turn the nipple shield inside-out halfway. Place the nipple shield over the breast with the nipple centered inside the nipple portion of the shield. Then flip the shield right side out, enclosing as much of the nipple as possible. If using the Contact nipple shield, position the open section where the baby's nose will contact the breast.
    - Support the breast with a hold. Place thumb on top of the breast and nipple shield and with fingers below, away from the areola (the dark pigmented skin surrounding the nipple).
    - Tickle baby's lower lip with nipple until he opens WIDE, then quickly pull baby onto the nipple shield, so baby takes as much of the nipple as possible into his mouth.
    - If the nipple shield is being used for a baby having difficulty latching onto the breast, remove the nipple shield after a minute or two of breastfeeding. Try to attach the baby to the breast without the nipple shield. Continue to do this with each feeding until the baby is able to latch-on without the shield. Some babies need only one or two sessions with the nipple shields, while others may need more.
  • Cleaning & Care
    - Follow these instructions unless otherwise instructed by your healthcare provider.
     1) Sanitize nipple shields by thoroughly boiling in water for 20 minutes. (Some healthcare providers recommend washing nipple shields in hot soapy water. Check with your healthcare provider for instructions on cleaning).
    2) Store with the nipple facing upwards and keep in a clean and dry covered container.
  • Warning:
    - It is important to use a nipple shield under the direction of a healthcare professional or lactation consultant.
