I also use the nipple shield...life saver for my preemie with a not so great latch. To stop the sides from popping up run it under hot water, or add the smallest amount of lanolin to the outside of your nipple....it stays when you do that. I also give bottles to supplement him, and he does fine, he prefers the breast, I think it is the feeling of being close. I'm going to a lactation support group next week to try to get him off the shield eventually, it is just a pain to keep washing and putting it on rather than just whipping it out.
