Hey ladies!

I just had my second daughter on the 1st. I was really hoping to be able to nurse without a nipple shield with this one but after many attempts to latch Clara on, she was unable to so I resorted back to using a shield.

I'd really love to try to wean her off it now that we're home, in a routine, and she's gotten the hang of nursing. Has anyone successfully weaned their LO and have any good tips for me?

I think a lot of my supply issues with my first daughter were due to using a shield so I'd love to try without it.

I would try nursing her without it while she is sleepy, or unlatch her, take it off, then put her back on, again, when she is sleepy.

I don't have personal experience with this, but here is some information from KellyMom.com on weaning from nipple shields: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/wean-shield/
