  • Why isn’t the Lansinoh Contact Nipple Shield completely round?

    This cut out area on the top of the shield allows for maximum skin to skin contact with baby. Skin to skin contact is important for providing the sensory triggers mom’s body needs to let-down and for efficient milk flow. It also provides the needed signals to establish and maintain a good milk supply.  In addition, skin to skin contact provides many benefits for baby such as regulating heart rhythms and body temperature. This is why we recommend only using the nipple shield until the underlying latching issue is addressed and then weaning from the shield to feeding directly at the breast.

    How can I determine if my nipple shield is fitting my properly?

    It is best to have a consultation with a lactation professional prior to using a nipple shield. They will be able to assess the needs of you and your baby and make a recommendation for the proper size.  Also, they will be able to help address the underlying issue that requires the use of the nipple shield and advise you on weaning from using the shield.

    Can the Lansinoh® Contact Nipple Shield be used to address soreness?

    Yes, a mom can use the nipple shield to address soreness issues.  However, this would not be our first recommendation to help ease soreness. It is advisable for moms to first try addressing soreness with either Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin or Lansinoh® Soothies® Gel Pads. If a mom is using a nipple shield to address soreness we would strongly recommend that she consults with a lactation professional to address the underlying issue that is causing the soreness.

    Highly Recommend for Breastfeeding Assistance

    Comments about Lansinoh Contact Nipple Shields:

    I found this product after having several weeks of difficult latching from my little one while breastfeeding. The pediatrician found a lip-tie that was the issue she was having with breastfeeding so I went searching for a product to help both of us out! This was one of the best purchases I have made. It immediately helped her to latch on completely and get a full feeding for the first time! I highly recommend buying this product if your little one is having trouble with latching or has a lip-tie.

    When my oldest was born, he had issues latching. These breast shields are the only reason I was successful in nursing him. I made it to 8 months EBF and was very happy that I was able to do so!

    I have flat nipples and difficulty with the baby latching on. I was so discouraged thinking I had to give up breastfeeding but these shields helped tremendously. This was the start of future purchases. Thank you.

    I have had to use these with both babies. The first was extremely tounge tied and wouldn't latch. Second one, she had a hard time latching because my nipples wouldn't come out. These have worked both times for me wonderfully.

    Comments about Lansinoh Contact Nipple Shields:

    When my daughter was born, she wouldn't latch at all, and it broke my heart. We later found out she had a tongue tie, and this was preventing her from properly latching and getting any milk, and also causing a lot of pain for me. When the hospital gave us this nipple shield, she was able to correctly latch and get the amount of milk she needed.

    Comments about Lansinoh Contact Nipple Shields:

    I had latching difficulties with both of my children. Thanks to the lactation consultant and her recommendation of this nipple shield I was able to continue nursing my first child. When my second child was born and we experienced latching difficulty again, I knew exactly where to turn. I know I wouldn't have been successful in my breastfeeding journey without Lansinoh Contact Nipple Shields.

    Perfect for latching issues and sore nipples

    By

    Comments about Lansinoh Contact Nipple Shields:

    I used this product with my first pregnancy and am prepared to use it again. With my first, I was so eager to breastfeed but had latching on problems. I was ready to give up completely until I tried this product. The shield helped protect my very sore nipples.it also helped to gently draw out a slightly flattened nipple to ease latching on and make breast feeding a pleasant experience for both myself and my child.
