Ins and Outs of Nipple Shields

You Know Your Baby Best

Most mothers want to do what is best for their little one. Many moms feel inadequate or inexperienced in knowing how to handle new situations, especially when it comes to breastfeeding. This can mean spending hours reading the research on what's best and when something can be harmful. 
In the case of nipple shields, the research that's out there is overwhelmingly contradictory. So relax in knowing that this is largely because each baby is different. What may work for one child may not work for another. When it's time to wean one child, it may not be time for another. But rest assured that you know your child best. Follow his or her cues, and together you can make breastfeeding effective and successful.
