After bf difficulties, my 1 month old is now drinking solely pumped breastmilk. I want to get her back to the breast, but am very stressed by the amount of pain entailed, and am afraid LO won't eat well since my tension rubs off on her (and remembering how incredibly awful and horribly painful it was breastfeeding her before makes me pretty tense). I've heard that nipple shields make breastfeeding much less painful, but are inconvinient, don't increase milk supply, and are a hard habit to break the baby of... But they can't possibly be more inconvient than pumping, and I figure they're probably about the same milk-supply-and-stimulation-wise... What do you all think about nipple shields???
