    Default Nipple shield questions...

    My daughter is 6 weeks old. She has been using the extra small nipple shield since the beginning. The lc suggested it but now says she should be using the larger one. I've tried using the larger one and she won't use it. I really want to get her off of it all together but she refuses. Is there anyone that used these that was never able to get their baby off of it?

    Thanks.

    We used them for about 2mos. Started with the extra small and moved to the regular one. He kept falling asleep when I had them on and so I tried taking them off and it worked like a charm. He'd stay awake for the whole feeding. The LC that worked with me just kept reminding me it's always one step forward two steps back....So don't worry you'll get there!
