Directions

Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching the breast and shield.

Clean the breast and surrounding area with a damp cloth.

Do not use soap or alcohol which can dry the skin and cause cracked nipples.

Moisten the shield with water as this will help it to stick to the skin.Push the tip almost inside out and grip the wings of the shield. Cover the holes with the middle finger and place the shield centrally over the nipple. Keeping the finger over the holes, gently pull the wings of the shield until it fits snugly over the nipple.
 

Note:
The open section should point in the direction of the baby’s nose during feeding.

Both mother and baby need to be considered when choosing the correct size nipple shield. Assess the size of the nipple, so the shield fits comfortably, without pinching and the nipple fills the cavity widthwise.

In the case of prematurely, a smaller size may be needed to ensure that the baby is able to grasp
the shield so the lips reach the flat base, against the breast.
