Are you left with sore, blistered or cracked nipples from breastfeeding your little one?  Do you need temporary nipple coverage while nursing until you heal?  Introducing the Back to Mom Natural Connection Shield and Breastfeeding Bite Guard. 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.  Our goal with this product is to allow for natural breastfeeding with the added protection of a thin, skin-like layer to protect Mom from pain. It also helps babies who have a weak suckle to move milk more efficiently than a regular nipple shield.  Great alternative to standard nipple shields!

Nice idea but didn't work for me

I was hoping to find a solution for my son continually biting me during nursing. I tried the standard nipple shields, and they just encouraged more biting. I was hoping these would work better with the nipple exposed, but unfortunately they did not curb the interest to explore the new texture (i.e. biting :-( ).

I wanted to like it

I bought several nipple shields because one of my twins bites and the other twin doesn’t know how to control flow. So far I haven’t been successful in finding a nipple shield that has helped both. This particular one is very very thin and didn’t provide any protection from biting with their gums.

Doesn’t work for biting

Seems like a good quality product for other issues, but didn’t help me at all. The reviews and product description weren’t totally clear about whether it might curtail the gumming/clamping nursing style my little one uses instead of sucking, so I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. I didn’t really expect it to work, so no big deal, but just to make it clear to anyone else - the cover does nothing to stop an infant from clamping down & bruising your nipple.

Saved my nipples

This saved my nipples from permanent damage! I was given a traditional nipple shield by the lactation nurse in the hospital because I was experiencing a lot of pain and blisters. In the following weeks I continued to use it while working with my son to fix a tongue tie and latch issues that caused pain. The problem was, my son sucked so hard that my nipple was sucked through the small holes at the end of the nipple shield and I was left with 4 bumps that would last longer and longer after each feed. I saw this open ended shield and knew it was exactly what I needed. My nipple was protected where is poor latch had bee causing pain but the end of my nipple was saved from having 4 permanent blister marks. Once we had to wean off shields it was so fast and easy to just step down to the low open ended shield and eventually no shield. I wish I would have used this nipple shield from the start!
