    Use Instructions

    WARNING: Never leave infants or children alone with nipple shields or packaging to prevent choking/suffocation. Boil for 5 minutes before first use.


    Be patient.
    This process can take time. Babies have good days and bad days.
    If you experience pain or pinching with SHIELD 1, skip straight to SHIELD 2. If pain persists with SHIELD 2, stop use and consult a lactation specialist for underlying issues.
    Don’t push it too much. A calm baby will be more likely to accept something new. You don’t want baby to associate your nipple with being upset so it’s okay to just use the shield baby is used to and try again after baby is calm.
    Express/pump to help induce a quick letdown and express a few drips onto your nipple and the Back to Mom shield to help entice baby to latch.
    Use the bait and switch. If baby refuses your breast or the new shield from the Back to Mom kit, start feeding baby with the shield they are used to and after they’ve fed for a few minutes quickly swap out the Back to Mom shield.
    Try to get as much skin-to-skin contact in as you can before and during the weaning process.

    If you are successful at latching baby to the bare breast and you have a lot of pain or blistering, consult a lactation specialist as latching issues may be persisting.


    Boil for 5 minutes
    before first use and once a week thereafter.
    Wash the nipple shield in hot soapy water before each use.
    Beginning with SHIELD 1, hold the nipple shield by the rim and flip the nipple shield inside out half way. Center the nipple shield over the breast and nipple and place the cutout where baby’s nose will be).
    If baby accepts the new shield and successfully eats with it you can move onto SHIELD 2 and then SHIELD 3. You can try to latch to bare breast at any point as well.
    The Back to Mom shields with their open ends can reduce the sucking satisfaction for baby. If baby latches and immediately unlatches it’s a sign they are unhappy with how it feels because it’s not holding it’s nipple shape. This can be good. It leads to baby more quickly realizing that your bare breast is the most satisfying and best way to get your milk. Continue to try to use SHIELD 1 at the beginning of each feeding and introduce your bare breast when baby refuses to accept the shield. This is why it’s key to pump/express before you begin so as soon as baby latches and sucks a little on the bare breast they are instantly rewarded.

    Quality product

    I love this product and so does my baby! I was getting blisters with the normal nipple shields but thanks to this kit that’s no longer a problem for me. The seller is also very kind and helpful, so glad I bought this product!


    I am so grateful that this kit was created. It requires patience, persistence, and staying calm. It might take switching around between regular shields and the 3 step open shields, but it really does help to train the baby to nurse directly on you and not the shields. The kit is a bit large for me, so I had to stop and start a few times and combine the steps with a smaller open shield.
    After 2 1/2 weeks I have finally had an almost shield-free day with my 3 1/2 month baby. This is such a helpful product, and I’m sure with time more sizes will be created!

    Didn't get product at all.
    We paid shipping only 50 USD, and still after one month product is not here.

    Increased milk transfer, saved BF journey!

    We haven't yet successfully weaned off nipple shields, but this product immediately increased the amount of milk my baby could transfer compared to the shield we were using before. It's a thinner, more flexible silicone, and the open tip improves milk flow. It took awhile to get my baby to latch consistently to it, but we worked hard together and now we are using it for all feeds. He was only getting about 1 oz in a 40 minute feed, and now he can get 4 oz in 20 minutes! This seriously saved our breastfeeding journey, as triple feeding was not sustainable for us. My milk supply is doing better, baby is gaining weight better, and we can work on weaning off the shield over time without too much stress. Lifesaving product- I bought an extra set as a backup because I couldn't feed my baby without it.

    Finally some success!!

    I had been trying for 3 months to get my son off the nipple shields. I tried everything! I even paid for a private lactation consultant who in the end said he’ll probably always need them because he just wouldn’t budge. I came across these and thought I’d give them a try. At first they hurt sooo much, I emailed the team and they told me to take a break then try going to shield 2 as shield 1 can sometimes cause pain if your little ones have strong suction. Luckily he took to the shields with lots of persistence!! I used shield 2 for a few days, then shield 1 for a few days, still using regular shields at night. One evening my shield fell on the floor so I thought I’d give him a try and he latched!! It has now been 3 weeks and he is still latching only on the breast. I heard these stories where babies miraculously latch on and never go back to the shield but I never thought it would happen for me. No more mastitis and baby seems much more content and full. I am so grateful to the lovely lady who encouraged me to keep going and gave me great tips. Honestly, just try and don’t give up even if you need to take a few days reset and try again!!
