Baby Wisdom Tip 464 – Nipple shields

__feedingSometimes the use of nipple shields are what keep you breastfeeding a little longer when the going gets tough. Don’t stress about using them, take a feed at a time and try slipping them off when your  little one is part way through their feed and not too hungry.  Alternatively you could try attaching baby without the shields when they are sleepy, making practice more gentle for both mum and baby.
