What is a Breastfeeding nipple shield?
A Breastfeeding Nipple Shield is a thin silicon device that are designed to be worn over your nipple when breastfeeding. The nipple shields are flexible and soft, and they also contain small holes at the tip which allow milk to flow into the infants’ mouth. The fact that they offer stimulation to the roof of the mouth of a child means that they help them properly latch and suckle more effectively.
