hi i was facing the same problem. i used nipple shield for one month and after that nipple came out liitle bit and tried to fed bany dorectly after that. the more you feed baby directly, nipple will come out automatically. dont worry...have patience....you will be able to feed baby !!


she is not sucking.. if she sucks.. milk is secreting.. by she is not sucking.. so milk supply is becoming low.. dunno what to do..


there are so many types of nipple shield available... can you please share some pictures ..
