The Contact nipples from medela with practical storage box protect sensitive and sore nipples of breastfeeding mothers. They are also the right choice for flat nipples, inverted nipples and latch-on difficulties.
The soft nipple shields can temporarily make breastfeeding easier for mothers with damaged nipples. Flat or inverted nipples are often difficult for babies to grasp. In these cases, the use of the nipple shields can make it easier to encourage the baby to suckle. The tasteless nipple shields have a recess that allows the important skin contact with the mother. The nipple shields are hygienically stored in the box for when you are on the move ob. To ensure that the caps always fit mum and baby perfectly, they are available in three sizes: S (diameter 16 mm), M (diameter 20 mm) and L (diameter 24 mm).
This is how the nursing caps are used: Grasp the hat by the wings and turn it upside down so that the wings face the tip of the hat - like a Mexican hat. Then close the holes with your middle finger and place the hat on your chest. Then fold the wings towards the chest so that they lie flat. The notch should be where the baby's nose is when breastfeeding.
Estimate your nipple size and choose the size of the nursing cap accordingly. The cup should fit comfortably without pinching. The nipple should fill the width of the cavity. Your baby should also be taken into account when choosing: It is important that your baby grips the breast shield completely so that his lips rest on the breast. A smaller size may be necessary for premature babies.
