Re: No more nipple shield!
The big issue with shields is that they can slow or reduce milk transfer. For a baby with a marginal latch, that can be a problem. Once you're able to ditch the shield, it's normal for feedings to speed up a lot. The change in flow speed can sometimes make baby a bit fussy. But as long as diaper output remains normal, call it a big success and pat yourself on the back!
