Medela Nipple Shields
For temporary use when breastfeeding with sore, cracked or flat nipples. They can also help with latch-on difficulties. Once you have breastfeeding established and it is pain-free, then you can stop using the nipple shields.
- Special contour and open section which allows maximum skin contact between mother and baby.
- Made from ultra thing, soft, non toxic silicone. This is odourless and tasteless.
- Each pair of nipple shields comes with a convenient box for hygienic storage.
These are available in three sizes, though the vast majority of mothers will be the size medium (20mm)
- Small = 16mm
- Medium = 20mm
- Large = 24mm

- Highly recommended
I used these when I had a cracked nipples and mastitide, they saved my life.Such a great product and service.
- Nipple saver!
Used these with my son and it was the only way I could breastfeed at times. This time around I have a new set ready to go for when my nipples need a wee break
Nipple shields are already making a difference, i was in so much pain when latching, let's hope I heal up real quick so can get my 1 week old back straight on the boob.
- Reccommend to all...
I was given one of these to try while in Maternity as I have flat nipples and was having lots of trouble with latching. Absolutely awesome. I bought 2 more myself. My baby is just over 4 months and I still use them for every feed. It was suggested to me that I use lanolin to 'stick' it onto the breast, but I found this a little messy and really unnessecary - lots easier to just hold it in place with two fingers and bring your baby to it. Took my baby a couple of times to get used to it and then he was away :)
- An amazing product!
Not necessarily for temporary use & I couldn't have breastfed otherwise due to small, flat nipples. I was given 1 from the maternity nurse in the hospital & have used it for over 5 months now with no visible signs of wear or tear =)
- Couldn't have done it without them
I have some of these shields in all 3 sizes and have used them for every feed (my son is 5.5 mths old) due to difficulty latching / flat nipples. They take a little while to get used to and you feel like you need 3 hands - but it gets much easier. I couldn't have breastfed without them. The large one seems too big for a small babies mouth to me, so i'd also suggest medium if you're unsure.
