Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute godsend These nipple shields have been an absolute godsend in helping my baby boy and I with our breastfeeding journey because he was lazy and wouldn’t latch on. First go with these and we cracked it! They’re easy to clean and come in a handy carry case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I’m so thankful for these nipple shields, without these I wouldn’t have been able to breastfeed which would have been extremely disappointing to me. Life saver!! I bought 6 of these as they are easy to misplace

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! These nipple shields are fantastic. I wad given some shields when in hospital but needed to replace them now my little boy has been home 2 months. I've tried lots of different shields and these are the best by far! They are just like the ones from the nhs, they stay in place and aren't too fat, which is perfect for my little boy as his mouth is quite small from being premature. The storage case is also very handy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Priceless!!! The Best product!!! Makes me emotional when i think abt it...As a first time mum the journey at the beginning after the baby arrived was painful firstly my son was born with a tongue tie and i had flat nipples...after the tongue tie correction my hopes of breastfeeding were crushed when the baby couldn't latch onto my flat nipples, i stayed at the hospital for 4 days just to give it my absolute best at breastfeeding as they refused to send me home until they saw me feed as i kept saying i want to breastfeed n not bottle. None of the nurses or midwives suggested nipple shields and a few even discouraged me to try them looking back now mayb they dint knw much abt them. So we gave up and got discharged once home while researching i came across these shields and as i had a medela b pump i bought the medela shields when i tried them i just couldnt get them to work very fiddly and the baby just got frustrated so i gave up, but when the health visitor came she suggested a breastfeeding consultant can comeover and help me and it was the best thing ever she encouraged me to use helped me keep it in place while d baby got used to sucking on it and in one visit and a good few tries baby knew exactly how to husband had to help me first week to just keep them in place when i put the baby in position, aftee both me n baby got a hang of it its been soo easy...its more how u feel as a new mum manoeuvring with a tiny delicate baby then the product being at fault so once u get the trick and comfort level its the best thing ever...easy to clean n store i have got 2 sets now...i have gone from 6-8 bottles a day to zero bottles n full breastfeeding in just a few weeks after the milk supply picked up i stopped expressing milk in a month as feeding with the shields is soo very easy and no much cleaning compared to ebm or formula. Please give them a chance and keep trying till you and baby are son is 5 months now and happy when he sees the shields he knows its his favourite time where he will be fed. Well done medela absolutely priceless feels almost like skin just sticks on to the boob with few drops of milk. Love it!!!

Questions & Answers

How do I know what size to buy? Do I measure just the sticky out bit of nipple or the base of the nipple too?

Asked by: cc
The most important part about getting the right fit for me was the size of your nipple because if you get the small size that fits you might not have a secure seal for around the nipple which is the important part regarding fitting as this is the part the baby sucks for there milk supply during feeding. I used a medium size & they were perfect my cup size was between a D/E cup. I am exclusively BF now with baby no4 but not had to use any again they were amazing with my last baby as she had a severe tongue tie good luck hope you find what you need & get on well with your product.

Can the nipple shield case be sterilised and then keep the shields sterile?

Asked by: Victoria
The instructions say just to wash with hot water so I don't think they are designed to be sterilised. The shields are very thin, I think they would disfigure under the heat of a steriliser.
