Six Things You Need To Know Before Using a Nipple Shield

Nipple shields…. the term sounds. Kind of like some medieval torture device. Back in the day they actually were made of metal and looked pretty scary.

Many mothers, myself included, have found themselves relying on this nifty little device to help them reach their breastfeeding goals. Unfortunately, though, these tools aren’t always used correctly and can sabotage a mother’s attempts to reach her goals.
