Medela Nipple Shields

WHY YOU NEED IT

Medela nipple shields are great if you’re breastfeeding and experiencing sore nipples or having problems getting your baby to latch on. Typically nipple shields are not needed long term, but can provide relief in the early period of breastfeeding.

What is a nipple shield?

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 when you begin breastfeeding, 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 they can also help. Or if your baby has problems latching on to the nipple and is not drinking milk well, give the Medela nipple shields a go. 

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

Breastfeeding Support 

If you’re looking for other products to help you with breastfeeding, like breast pumps, pads or soothing ointments, you can discover more here. Additionally, we have a helpful blog article from a midwife on how to increase your milk supply.

EDITORS' NOTES

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
