I used them while I was in the hospital but haven't since I been home. I only pump now that RJ is sex weeks anyway. So what is about the shield do u think helps?

They really are a life saver! I have to use them since I have small nipples that don't protrude so latching is a nightmare most of the time. I really don't think I would have stuck with breastfeeding without them! I am trying to slowly wean her since they are sometimes such a pain!
