The Nipple Shield for Breastfeeding is specially designed to protect the nipple of a nursing mother. It is a thin cover that a mother places over her nipple prior to breastfeeding to protect the nipple from baby teeth. It is made of high-quality liquid silicone which is the safest rubber material and is widely used in baby and mom care products and medical products. This shield is ultra-thin, flexible, super-soft, and BPA/BPS-free. It rests over the mom’s nipple when placed against her breast.
Its special design helps babies who have latch-on difficulties and mothers who have flat, sunken, short, or cracked nipples that make it difficult for babies to breastfeed properly. There are tiny holes at the tip that milk can flow through into the baby’s mouth. The shield is like a hat with a brim and a crown. It has cut-out sections around the brim that allows the baby’s nose and chin to be in contact with the mother’s skin rather than the nipple shield. This promotes good attachment.
