I posted the thread about how to get my 5 month on back on the breast about 3 weeks ago. Well about an hour ago I tried the nipple shield and she latched on!!! (for about 5 min) Yea!!!! I know there is much debate about using nipple shields but this is a start.
I have been exclusively pumping since she was 6 weeks because I introduced the bottle and she refused the breast. I would love to bf exclusively again!!!
Has anyone used nipple shields before? And am I doing the right thing by using them? What are the dissadvantages by using them?
