I use nipple shield for feeding....does it have any negative effect

Nipple shields become favoured by the baby and they may refuse to feed without a shield. There is added work of sterilising and making sure hygiene is maintained. Also a shield needs to be replaced with a new one every month or so as there is wear and tear.
