Natural Connection/Open Ended Nipple Shield
This open ended nipple shield allows baby to access the nipple directly while creating a guard against friction from suckling and teeth. This helps to prevent agitation and damage to the nipple. It will bring relief to Mom as it helps cover sore, chaffed nipples by providing a temporary barrier for Mom until ready to resume natural breastfeeding.
I was absolutely stunned. I couldn’t believe how well and how quickly this worked for me. I was started on a nipple shield by an overnight nurse who couldn’t help me get my baby latched right and didn’t have the time to deal with a sleep deprived first time mom who was crying that she was failing her baby. After that moment he would scream without the nipple shield. No ties, no nipple issues. I think it just let him being lazy with his latch. When I tried to wean him at two months I saw this product and passed it by, thinking that all the methods I’d read online would work. By 5 months I was willing to try anything to not have to fight with a nipple shield at every feeding. I was definitely skeptical. One day was all it took. He didn’t even use the middle one. After I got him to latch with the biggest one we didn’t go back to a regular shield. We went back and forth from the smallest to largest for about a day and that was it. He was back on the breast for the first time since his first day of life. The next two days he fussed on and off, especially with longer feedings, but e didn’t need a nipple shield or even the back to mom anymore. By a week it was like the nipple shield had never existed. My only regret is passing this up the first time I saw it. Well worth the money.
I have heard horror storied of babies becoming dependent on traditional nipple shields and having my milk supply drop and did not want that for us. This shield is cool because it is just partial coverage so your baby is used to your nipple which makes it easy to remove it. My baby had a tongue tie which they didn't discover for a couple weeks and during that period my nipples like killed. I was ready to give up but found this shield. IT WAS AMAZING! I had instant relief. And after his tongue tie was clipped I was able to latch him right to my nipple and he had no problem taking it. Anyone who is considering a nipple shield should try this one first.
We used a 24mm medela nipple shield since the day after my daughters birth due to shallow latching. We went on with it for almost 4 months as she pretty much refused to nurse without it. I’d try feeding then take it off and latch her but she wouldn’t do it, she’d just get frustrated. So I gave in and bought this kit and it was worth it! Granted it did make my nipples sore because the way the baby pulls it through the shield but she didn’t need the shield after ONE DAY of use!! (Every baby is different though some will take longer). Customer service was wonderful - when I emailed them about the “rubbing” of my nipple against the shield and how it felt like it was blistering, they replied within 24 hours with a thorough email, not an automated one which I expected. Anyway, then I kept trying to use a shield on and off when my nipples just hurt from her nursing (she never nursed without a shield so it was like the beginning of breastfeeding for my nipples lol) and she would refuse to nurse! Not to mention I am 99% sure I’m having more letdowns without using a nipple shield now and she’s gaining weight better. Very very thankful for this product!!!
