I would offer only breast too, but I would suggest doing it under the care of a LC. Was your baby premature (you mentioned NICU)? Premature babies sometimes have a harder time transferring milk and can transfer more with a nipple shield. You wouldn't have to see one for long I suspect. Just to do a few before and after feed weight check to see the milk transfer and to ensure the baby is gaining weight properly.
