I was given a nipple shield to help LO latch while at the hospital. I met with an LC last week and we discussed transitioning off the shield since he is gaining weight and eating well. When offering the breast without the shield, LO grows frustrated and doesn't latch. I only try for a few minutes at a time, but we revert back to the shield. I am going to a support group in Thursday, but would like to work on it between now and then. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting off the shield? Success stories? Thanks!
