DESCRIPTION:

The SuckleThrough Nipple Shield is designed to help moms with elastic nipples to nurse or wean from traditional nipple shields. The open top allows the mother's nipple to extend into the baby's mouth and come into direct contact with baby's saliva. It also helps protect from a bad latch and create a more comfortable experience.

Size S is good for nipple size 15-20mm. Contains 2 nipple shields.

What size is the Suckle Through Nipple Shield?

Currently we only have S size available, which is good for nipple size 15mm-20mm.



Would the Suckle Through Nipple Shield hurt?

No. The SuckleThrough Nipple Shield is made of soft silicone that is very comfortable to use even when your nipple extends outside the opening of the shield.



Is my nipple supposed to extend through the Suckle Through Nipple Shield?

Yes. That's the purpose of the Suckle Through Nipple Shield, which facilitates the transition to direct breastfeeding while still providing protection on the base of mother's nipple. Free milk flow is important for saliva-breastmilk communication and weaning off traditional nipple shields. However, if you have inverted nipples then maybe your nipple doesn't extend through the hole on it. But you should still be able to use it to help with direct breastfeeding as the nipple portion of the shield still mimics a mother's nipple.



Can I use the Suckle Through Nipple Shield if I have inverted nipples?

We don't recommend it for moms with inverted nipples because it doesn't have enough structure to mimic mother's nipple to stimulate baby's nursing. It is designed for moms with elastic nipples.

I’ve been using LacTecks nipple shield for just over 24 hours & for 8-9 feedings & let me just say— WE LOVE IT. I’ve noticed even in 24 hours a boost in my supply (via pumping with LacTeck BabyMotion Flanges & pump schedule hasn’t changed one bit) & I greatly attribute this to the fact that my nipple is exposed to baby’s saliva & actual suck! I have very elastic nipples & this shield has been AMAZING. My baby gets the best feed I feel he’s ever gotten. I will say, due to my elastic nipples my nipple does stretch out through the nipple shield, but seems to be a total win for us! I’ve tried every well known shield on the market (Medela, lansinoh, nuby, haakaa) & this has been the most comfortable, easy & productive shield for us even in just about 32 hours of use! I LOVE the concept & design.

I've been using the shield and it does pull my nipple out. At first my son struggled since it something new, definitely took him a minute to breastfeed. After that it was like I had nothing on, felt so natural. Other nipple shield are uncomfortable to me and this is super comfortable. My son only struggled that one time and after that was like I had no shield on.

It does take a little bit for my son to latch but once he is latched, the shields really do help! They are far less painful than nursing without them. It does stay on as soon as he is latched! When I first put it on, not all of the edges stay put but I just hold it on before he latches on and that works!

My daughter, just shy of 6 months (preemie) didn’t gag one time! She was finally able to get a good latch and fully nurse (both sides) before falling fast asleep. You guys knocked this one out of the park! My nipples did extend out slightly but I’ve never used shields before this testing so I wasn’t sure if that was normal or not but she did great so I really have no complaints! I had no trouble keeping it on and my daughter was finally able to fully empty both sides so this was great! I would definitely recommend.

We have tried it and my son he did really well with it. I like the softness of it, and he seemed to latch really well, with my nipple out some!!

I used the shield for my newborn who had issues with latching. The shield is open on the front area so the baby is receiving more of the nipple. The rest of the shield is designed similar to other shields. The shield fit perfectly to my small nipples (size 17 mm for reference). I love that the material of the shield is “sticky” so I’m not having to struggle with keeping it on. With the traditional shields I always struggled with keeping the shield on or the baby pulling it during or before feeds. This shield has helped us feed and get us to the point where we are no longer using shield. I would love for other moms to know that this is the perfect alternative to the traditional shield and hopefully will make their journey a lot smoother.

Very helpful!

I combined these shields with a 3-step method for weaning off shields. The others were large for me, and fortunately these shields fit perfectly. With patience, persistence, and staying calm after just over 2 weeks my baby is latching without shields. These were a great stepping stone to weaning her off regular shields!

Hi Missy, great to hear that it's helpful for weaning off regular nipple shields!

Weaning from nipple shield

I've been nursing my baby with a traditional nipple shield since she was born because of a tongue and lip tie. After it was corrected, she still would not latch on my breast because she had gotten so used to the shield. I found this sucklethrough shield and gave it a shot because at the very least I'd get the benefits of my baby's saliva, even if we were using the shield long term. Well, after only 5 days my baby is not even needing these anymore and is totally fine taking my breast! The sucklethrough shield material is thinner than my traditional shield, so it wasn't too difficult to to go from this shield to skin. Purchasing this shield has saved my breastfeeding journey by providing the perfect stepping stone between my traditional nipple shield and bare breast. Sooo happy I took a chance on it!

Hi Castagna, thank you for leaving your feedback! Great that you find it helpful in weaning your baby off traditional nipple shields! Breastfeeding directly would be so much easier :)
