Medela Contact Nipple Shields are breastfeeding accessories designed to help moms with various nipple issues. They are made of ultra-thin, soft, and flexible silicone, which feels natural against the skin and allows maximum skin-to-skin contact during breastfeeding. The nipple shields have a unique shape that ensures a snug fit and helps babies latch on easily. They are also available in different sizes to accommodate various nipple sizes and shapes. Using Medela Contact Nipple Shields can help alleviate nipple pain and soreness, reduce friction, and prevent further damage to the nipple tissue.

Frequently Bought Together

How to use Medela Close Contact Nipple Shield for Breastfeeding?

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with drinking-quality water and soap before touching the shield and the breast. Dry your hands with a fresh towel or a single-use paper towel.
  • Clean the breast and surrounding area with a damp cloth. Do not use soap or alcohol which can dry the skin and cause cracked nipples.
  • Moisten the shield with water as this will help it to stick to the skin (see figure 1).
  • Push the tip almost inside out and grip the wings of the shield (see figure 2).
  • Place the shield centrally over the nipple (see figure 3). The open section should point in the direction of the baby’s nose during feeding.
Choosing the correct nipple shield size: When choosing the correct nipple shield size you need to consider both mother and baby.
For the mother:
  • The shield should fit comfortably without pinching.
In the case of a premature infant:
  • When grasping the shield, the infant’s lips must be able to reach the flat base of the shield against the breast.
