Hi! I'm Heather and Tenli will be 3 weeks old on Thursday. I have been breastfeeding, but with the use of a nipple shield because she would not latch on. I have talked to a couple of lactaction consultants, but I was wondering if anybody here has used a nipple shield before and if so, how you weaned your baby off it?
I only used one for a couple of days on one nipple, but I got rid of it by using it for the first minute or so and then removing it and putting him back to the breast. It took him a minute to latch back on, but he got the hang of it.
