What is the best way to determine if the Lansinoh® Contact Nipple Shield is fitting properly?
It is best to have a consultation with a lactation professional prior to using a nipple shield. The consultant will be able to assess needs of mom and baby and make a recommendation for the proper size. Additionally, the lactation professional will be able to help address the underlying issue that requires the use of the nipple shield and advise on how to wean from using the shield.
Why is the Lansinoh® Contact Nipple Shield not completely round?
The cutout area on the top of the shield allows for maximum skin to skin contact with baby. Skin to skin contact is important for providing the sensory triggers mom’s body needs to let-down, and to maintain a good milk supply. Additionally, the skin to skin contact provides many benefits for baby such as regulating heart rhythms and body temperature. This is why it is recommended to only use the nipple shield until the underlying latching issue is addressed, and then weaning from the shield to feed directly at the breast.
