Personal Review: When my son Zander was first born, he wasn’t latching properly, so the nurse at the hospital offered me the Medela Nipple Shield to help us to begin breastfeeding. It being my first time breastfeeding, the nipple shield was a life saver when learning how to latch. He took really well to it and that’s how our nursing journey began. In the first few weeks, I tried breastfeeding without the shields to see if he would latch and he did, but it was very painful for me. The nipple shields definitely helped with sore nipples. Eventually, I lost my nipple shields in the midst of all the crazy late night feedings and lack of sleep  and had no choice but to nurse without them. Luckily everything was fine and I didn’t have to use them again moving forward. As for the first few weeks that we did use them, they were a life saver and I give them full credit for being able breastfeed successfully.
