The special design of Medela Nipple Shield, which is worn over the nipple and areola, permits the flow of breastmilk while providing a larger surface for the baby to latch on to. Since they may diminish the stimulation needed to sustain lactation, Nipple Shields should be used only under professional care and weekly weight checks are recommended during use.
- The Medela Nipple Shield is used for cases of latch-on difficulties or inverted nipples.
- Made of this silicone.
- For use under professional care only while breastfeeding the baby.
- Not to be worn between feedings.
- The unique cut-out base of the shield allows more skin to skin contact between mother and baby.
- DEHP & BPA free.
