Specially designed to maximize the amount of skin-to-skin contact between a nursing mother and her baby, the Medela Contact Nipple Shields are made from BPA-free, thin silicone. Medela Contact Nipple Shields come in three different sizes to accommodate different nipple shapes—16 millimeters, 20 millimeters, and 24 millimeters. Users of the nipple shield should consult a lactation consultant or specialist to determine what size works best for their body. The soft silicone protects sore breasts and allows breastfeeding to continue with less pain on the part of the mother. Users on Amazon rave that these nipple shields were a lifesaver during the first few months of breastfeeding.

NUK Breast shield, silicone, incl. case | sagazeta.info
Wish I had known about this product beforehand since bfing was challenging with my first 3 but with my 4th child I found this product online and had good reviews. I ordered 2 to have available if I lose one. I really like this product a lot but wish there was a better cut out for baby's nose. Over all this is something I would most definitely recommend to other moms! This product is great.

Dear customer, unfortunately this article is subject to the restrictions of the brand manufacturer NUK and may not initially be available in your country. The NUK nipple shields protect irritated or sore nipples, because they do not only relieve the sensitive nipples but also enable you to continue breastfeeding your baby. They are also suitable for flat or inverted nipples as they help making breastfeeding pleasant and contribute to a natural drinking flow.
They were made from wood, iron, wax, and other raw materials. Today, most nipple shields are made of silicon, rubber, or latex. While nipple shields can help some mothers breastfeed their babies, there are some cons associated with the use of a nipple shield.
