I can't believe DD will be 7 mos soon and we are still using nipple shields. We had latching problems at the beginning and a LC told me to use them. She said it was because I had inverted nipples. She checked me later and said the nipple shields were not stopping the milk supply and keep using them.
I have tried to wean her but I can't get her to latch correctly. And I am always in fear of leaving the house without them. Well, today I did forget them and my nipples are soooo sore right now.
I am glad I am able to bf, but I thought I would be off these things by now. Anyone else still using them?
