If you do think you need breast shields, you should probably talk to a LC or LLLeader first b/c they can cause problems if they aren't the right size or used correctly.
Gentle Reminder: Breast/Nipple shields should be used ONLY under the guidance of a LLL Leader or lactation consultant. They need to be properly fitted and you need to be instructed on proper use. There are MANY things to try before resorting to the nipple shield.
"Mothers are designed to be available to their babies--to help them make the transition into this big, wide world. To teach them to trust, and love, and feel good about being alive."
