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. With the use of the cones, it can be easier to encourage the child to suckle. The tasteless nipple shields are provided with a recess that enables important skin contact with the mother. The nipple shields are hygienically stored in the box when you are out and about. The hats are available in three sizes S (diameter 16 mm), M (diameter 20 mm) and L (diameter 24 mm) so that the hats always fit perfectly with mom and child.
This is how the nipple cones are used: Take hold of the cone by the wings and turn it inside out so that the wings point towards the tip of the cone - like a Mexican hat. Then close the holes with your middle finger and put the hat on your chest. Then fold the wings towards your chest so that they lie flat. The recess should be where the baby's nose is when breastfeeding.
Notes on size selection
Estimate your nipple size and choose the size of the nipple shield accordingly. The cone should sit comfortably without pressing. The nipple should fill the width of the cavity. Your baby must also be taken into account when making the selection: It is important that your child grips the nipple shield completely so that its lips lie on the breast. A smaller size may be necessary for premature babies.
