I know there were a couple peole here who used a sheild....I was just wondering how you weaned your LO of them? Do they kinda tell you there ready? Did yu "feel" ready? I think thats what Cambia might be trying to tell me. Sometimes she'll only use the sheild and other's she'll keep pulling off and crying and as soon as I take off the sheild she'll go back to nurseing like nothing happened.....Does she not like it? Do your LO's pull off and on while your nurseing them? This is her new thing and It's getting frustrateing....

I used a sheild and i weaned because i forgot it one day and Jack was hungry so i just tried it without and for the first time he actually latched and ate. Since then we've been sheild free. Honestly if she is pulling off and nursing fine without it, why continue using it? If she will nurse without it then good for you guys cause your life can be much easier now.
BTW he was about 3 months old at the time.

My suggestion is to quit using it unless she is having a difficult time without it. Why did you start using it in the first place, was is soreness, latch problems or inverted nipples? Chances are, the transition will be easy since she's been willing to nurse without it already. My DD only used it for a few days, and it took only a few nursing sessions to get rid of it. I would first try to latch her on without it, if she didn't accpet, I would put it on, wait until after the letdown, the unlatch her and take it off. After doing this a few times, she was successfully latching without it.
