Made from a soft flexible silicone rubber and provides a wide contact surface. The cut-out section on the top of this shield enables baby to be in direct contact with mother's skin and the holes on the nipple are designed to be exactly the same as the mother's nipple.
An aid for successful breastfeeding, used for flat, inverted, sore and cracked nipples. Provides pain relief when baby latches on.

I've now been using the Pigeon Nipple Shields for every feed for 5 weeks now and my baby is exclusively breast fed, which I couldn't achieve without it. He doesn't need any supplemental feeds as he gets full access to my milk via the very thin silicone.... also, my nipple nicely fills the entire teat as they are small and make for great contact for baby to stimulate multiple let downs. I love this product, I'm buying more of them.
