The Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield is a world-first design made of 100% soft silicone, with an extended teat that puts space between your nipple and your baby’s mouth.
Includes one shield and a protective case for storage.
NOTE: This is a very unique looking nipple shield.
Please watch the video; there is an additional recommendation for mothers to express breastmilk into the nipple of the shield so it can be ready as soon as baby is brought to latch.
We recommended when using a nipple shield that it is under the recommendation of a lactation specialist (IBCLC or Lactation Educator) so that you can also continue to work toward latching baby without the use of a shield.
We do not recommend nipple shield for any mothers without feeding difficulties. This product is a solution for those who need assistance with latching perhaps due to baby's specific latch awaiting correction, or for those with flat, inverted or cracked nipples.
Cleaning and Care
Wash before and after each use. Although dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing in warm soapy water and rinsing and drying thoroughly. Do not use any bleach-based cleaners or tablets to sterilise or clean your Haakaa products. To sterilise, use a steam steriliser or boil in water for 2-3 minutes.
