Re: Wife has painful feedings
The PP gave good advice about trying a shield. However, I strongly suggest that a shield be used only with the guidance of a good LC. While it is true that the newer, more flexible silicone shields are less likely to cause reduced milk supply, the potential for it to happen is still there. I had that experience- and yes, I was using one of the new, flexible shields.
