Protective nipple shields
Nipple shields are worn during feeding to protect the nipples and allow breast feeding to continue in a pain-free manner.
They are particularly recommended by maternity wards and doctors in cases where nipples are irritated, inflamed or cracked. They are also useful for helping mums with inverted or flat nipples that are difficult for baby to latch on to.
Our test panel of mums liked:
- the silicone is so flexible and fine you can even forget it’s there, meaning you’ll treasure those intimate moments with baby
- the shape and form which maximises skin-to-skin contact and doesn’t prevent baby from continuing to smell mum’s breast
- the fact that they adapt to all shapes of chest
Nipple shields are sold in packs of 2.
