Details

  • Includes: 2 x Nipple Shields with Case
  • Made of thin silicone

Medela nipple shields can be an effective tool for a new breastfeeding mother with latch-on problems or an overactive let-down response. The nipple shields enable continued breastfeeding without interruption until these problems are resolved.

When to Use

  • Flat or inverted nipples: Some babies have difficulty latching onto the breast. Flat or inverted nipples can contribute to latch-on problems. A nipple shield gives the baby a larger area to latch onto, while breastfeeding helps draw the nipple out. This makes it easier for the baby to subsequently latch onto the breast without the nipple shield.
  • Latch-on difficulties: Other babies are slow to learn how to latch on in the first week. The use of a nipple shield can temporarily assist the baby in attachment to the breast, until the baby has learned the proper technique without the use of a shield. Silicone has been used by Medela in the manufacturing of their Nipple Shield because it has minimal odor and taste.
  • Overactive let-down: Occasionally a mother will have an overactive let-down response which can cause a baby to choke and pull off the breast. Using a nipple shield can slow down the flow of milk, thus enabling the baby to continue nursing. As the baby matures and becomes more coordinated with the sucking and swallowing, the nipple shield is no longer needed.

WARNING: It is important to use a nipple shield under the direction of a healthcare professional or lactation consultant.

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 “C” 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.

FAQ

How do I sanitize the nipple shield?

Cleaning

  1. Rinse in cool water to remove breast milk.
  2. Wash in warm, soapy water.
  3. Rinse with clear water.

Note: Nipple shields can also be washed on top rack of dishwasher.

Drying & Storing

Allow nipple shield to air dry in a clean area and store dry with the nipple facing upwards. Do NOT store wet or damp parts.

Sanitizing
In addition to washing, you may sanitize your nipple shield once per day by following the instructions on Medela’s Quick Clean™ Micro-Steam™ bag or boiling.

If boiling your nipple shield:

  1. Choose a pot that is large enough so the nipple shield DOES NOT rest on the sides or bottom while boiling.
  2. Fill the pot with water and bring to a boil.
  3. Carefully drop nipple shield into boiling water, and boil for 10 minutes.
  4. Gently remove from water with tongs and place on a clean surface with nipple facing upwards. (For easier removal, add cool water to pot to prevent splashing.)
  5. See Drying & Storing section above for further instructions.

 

What is the diameter of the nipple shield at the base?

Medela’s Nipple Shields are available in 3 sizes:  16 mm, 20 mm, and 24 mm (measured at the base).

 

How can I determine what size nipple shield I will need?

Choose the size closest to your nipple base diameter. We recommend that you seek advice from a lactation consultant or other healthcare professional to determine the correct size for you and your baby.

Product Questions

I’m confused on how to choose the right sizing. If I buy spectra breastshield 24mm (small), should I choose medela nipple shield 24mm as well (large)? It is just seem too different, small vs large... if the size doesnt fit, can I return? Thanks!

For the sizing please choose the size closest to your nipple base diameter. We recommend that you seek advice from a lactation consultant or other healthcare professional to determine the correct size for you and your baby. 

(*For spectra breast shield sizing guide, the inner diameter of the breastshield (B) should be 1-2 mm larger than the diameter of your nipple (N). AFTER a pumping session or 3-5 mm BEFORE a pumping session.  You should be able to see free movement of your nipple during pumping and there should be little or no suction of the areola into the tunnel of the breastshield.*)

Very useful for cracked nipples sustained after baby got her first teeth. Make sure to get the right size. Bought the wrong size and had to get another pair

Review by Michell on November 24, 2018

This was a lifesaver when I had inverted nipples at the beginning of my breastfeeding. Relieves the direct pain, and helped baby to latch on. Do Ensure you find your correct size.
