I started using a nipple shield last month, when I had a horrible case of thrush. I've since recovered, but I am still using the shield. I have heard that supply can lower due to lack of sensation; luckily, I feel mine has been intact. I think lo is really used to the shield though and I find myself nervous about trying to work without it.
However, if we do not need it, it would be easier to go without it. I would greatly appreciate any advice on how do do so and make sure her latch is okay still. If you have experience with this, how did you handle it? How can I limit any confusion for her?
Thanks so much!
