I started using a nipple shield with my daughter after about a week of bfing because my nipples hurt and were cracked. No one had really told me how to use it. It was just given to me at the hospital and a nurse suggested I use it since I was afraid to nurse because I felt like baby was going to seriously damage me. After a couple weeks they were better and I tried to get her to not use it and she wouldn't. At one point I thought I broke her of it, but then after a couple days she got so upset that she wouldn't eat without it so I used it again and she hasn't wanted to consistently nurse without it since. She will for a minute or two once in a while, then she will quit. What are some things I can do to get her to not use it? I have just continued using it because I figured it was better to use it than to not nurse her, but she is almost 4 months old and having to make sure I have that thing and hold it there is getting old.
