LatchAssist® Nipple Everter

The Lansinoh® LatchAssist® Nipple Everter is an invaluable tool for moms with inverted nipples, as well as moms who are experiencing flat nipples due to engorgement, making it difficult for baby to latch on. Using LatchAssist®, mom can gently draw out flat or inverted nipples, making it easier for baby to latch and feed.

The Lansinoh Difference

  • Each LatchAssist® Nipple Everter comes with two flange sizes, ensuring a comfortable fit for every mom. Gently squeeze the bulb, creating minimal suction that will gently draw out the nipple just enough for baby to latch on.
  • Engorgement is caused by a supply of breastmilk that has not been released. While some may suggest using a pump to evert your nipple, don’t do this! It can cause your body to make more milk and worsen engorgement.

  • What does the “BPA and BPS Free” Icon on your packaging mean?

    The chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) is widely known to be a hormone disrupter. Acting like an estrogen imposter, BPA has been linked to cancer, type 2 diabetes, depression, heart disease and a number of other ailments. BPA can be especially dangerous in pregnancy, infancy and childhood – so much so that many governments around the world have banned BPA in the production of baby bottles (as well as other products).

    The chemical bisphenol-S (BPS) is used as a plasticizer by some manufacturers and, in many cases, has been used to replace BPA. BPS is also a hormone disrupter, but is currently allowed for the production of baby bottles and similar products.

    Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh, we have taken proactive measures to ensure our Lansinoh® mOmma® bottles with NaturalWave® Nipples are BPA and BPS free.

    Is Lansinoh® LatchAssist® Nipple Everter BPA and BPS Free?

    Yes! Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh, we have taken proactive measures to ensure Lansinoh® LatchAssist® Nipple Everter is both BPA and BPS Free.

    How do you use this product?

    1. Choose one of the two sizes (included) in the package depending on her nipple size.
    2. Gently squeeze bulb and place the shield over and around her nipple.
    3. Lightly press the shield down against her skin to ensure an airtight seal.
    4. Slowly release the bulb for the desired pressure. 
    5. Position the baby for breastfeeding so as soon as her nipple is extended, the baby can latch onto the breast.
    6. Repeat gently until her nipple is extended and her baby can easily latch on to her breast. 
    7. After use wash again, rinse and air dry. 
    8. Discard any milk that has collected in the bulb.

    Does the LatchAssist™ Nipple Everter come in multiple sizes?

    The LatchAssist™ Nipple Everter comes in two sizes—19mm and 24mm—to accommodate moms with different sized nipples. The nipple should comfortably fit inside the flange tunnel without rubbing. If it rubs or if the entire nipple cannot fit into the tunnel, mom should use the larger size that is included. 

    Why is this a good alternative to a syringe or a pump for flattened nipples?

    Current recommendations and practices include using a manual or electric breast pump to draw out inverted or flattened nipples. Some lactation consultants recommend using a cut-off syringe to evert the nipple. While those methods can sometimes help the situation, they can be cumbersome and time-consuming.

    The recommendation to use a breast pump in this situation may not be the best option for a mom who needs a solution for her temporarily flat nipples, but may not need or want to pump.  Pumping can signal to your body to make more milk and can cause even more swelling and engorgement. You want to evert (pull out) your nipple so the baby can latch on and feed directly from the breast. This will ease the swelling and engorgement and signal to your body how much milk to produce based on the baby’s needs.

    Why do moms get engorged?

    About the third day postpartum a mom’s breasts may swell (engorgement); the good news is that it’s a temporary condition. Nursing frequently during this period is the best way to alleviate engorgement, but it can be difficult because your baby might have trouble properly latching onto an engorged breast. LatchAssist™ can help pull out the nipple to help baby latch on the breast. 

    When would a mom use the LatchAssist™ Nipple Everter?

    LatchAssist™ is a device mom can use to help her baby latch on to breastfeed when her nipple is flattened due to swelling or engorgement. The skin can stretch so much that her nipples, which may normally be everted or protruding, flatten making it difficult for baby to latch.

    This item came in my breastfeeding starter kit, and it really helps. I have an inverted nipple and this helps before I nurse and pump. It really, really works.

    Comments about Lansinoh LatchAssist® Nipple Everter:

    I received this in a breastfeeding care kit. The kit had a few other items and as my first time mom self I thought this everter would be useless to me. "i don't have inverted nipples", I thought to myself, why would I need this. I put it in the nursery and nearly forgot about it...then my milk came in after I had my son. I was so engorged my son couldn't latch. He would get frustrated and cry. I used this everter to draw out the nipple and my son could actually latch! I took this thing everywhere with me! It is actually still in my diaper bag even though now 5 months in I am not using it! I will definitely be using it for my next baby when that day comes!

    Comments about Lansinoh LatchAssist® Nipple Everter:

    My newest child will be arriving here in a few weeks and this will be the first time for me to ever try breastfeeding or pumping. One of the reasons I never tried breastfeeding or pumping for my other children is the fact that my nipples are flat. While pregnant with this little one I happened across a video about this product. My husband and bought this right away and it really does work! I was amazed at how fast and easy this product works and I know I will have no problems now feeding my baby. Thank you so much to Lansinoh for creating this.

    Great product....... Was ready to give up nursing after two weeks due to my flat inverted nipples.
    This product changed it all and made my new born son eagerly look forward to latching on.

    Comments about Lansinoh LatchAssist® Nipple Everter:

    I found out about this product when I was pregnant with my third child, which was my second child to breastfeed. I got it because I got cracked nipples that bleed when I breastfeed for the first time. I started using this the first time I breastfeed my new baby, since my nipples would come out all the way. This saved me from a lot of pain and works like a wonder. I love this product, and think to myself, I wish I had invented this a long time ago!!!
