Using a Nipple Shield

Nipple shields are a small piece of silicon that fit over the top of the nipple to help protect a nipple from damage. They are a tool that can be used for as short or as long as needed. Some moms use them temporarily to help heal the nipple. Other moms use them while waiting to get their baby's tongue tie clipped. They can also be used to help pull out a flat or inverted nipple.
