A nipple shield is a thin, flexible piece of silicone that you place over your nipple before breastfeeding to protect it.  Usually occurring in the early days and weeks, you might need to use nipple shields, if you have sore, cracked nipples, or are suffering from nipple pain. If you have flat or inverted nipples. Or if your baby has problems latching on to the nipple and is not drinking milk well. Typically nipple shields are not needed long term, but can provide relief in the early period. 

Available in three sizes: Small/16 mm, Medium/20 mm or Large/24 mm.

Your lactation consultant or breastfeeding specialist will be able to advise you whether or not nipple shields are appropriate for you, and can also support you with your ongoing breastfeeding needs.  Often the hospital where you gave birth have lactation specialists and services to help you, or if you are at home try making an appointment with your Maternal and Childcare Nurse through your council, or of course there is the free counselling service from the Australian Breastfeeding Association https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/contact

The old wives tale of putting some breast milk on sore and crack nipples can work wonders, or invest in some eco-friendly award winning nipple cream from Frankly Eco, here.

Daily use: it depends. Typically these nipple shields are not a long term daily use, just whilst your nipples heal or baby improves their latch. 
Life cycle: women who have inverted nipples may need to use them long term, whilst women who are using for cracked and sore nipples and poor breast latch, can be a few days, weeks.
Functionality:

simply place over your nipple, using a little water (or lick!) to help them stay in place.  Then guide your baby to the breast as you normally would. The nipple shields come with a convenient carry case so you can keep them safe between uses.

Available in three sizes: Small/16 mm, Medium/20 mm or Large/24 mm.

Eco-aware: BPA free. Made from transparent, ultra-thin, soft silicone that’s comfortable on sensitive skin.
