Success!

I just had two successful feedings without the nipple shield... Hoping and praying we can keep going without it. Btw, the Thera shells help draw out your nipple which made for easier latching. Hoping this helps with baby girls weight gain.

    That's great! It gives me hope that my guy will come off the shield bc I have been nervous about trying.

    FWIW, I started with the shield then after a few mins I took it off and tried without. I had to kind of help hold it in with a C hold (my boobs are so big...) and the next time I didn't even use the shield at all. I'm going to keep on trying and hoping she doesn't need it anymore!

    Same thing for my DD last time around though it took 2 months.

    I also have to do th C hold every time. There's no getting around that.

    I used nipple shields with my first for a few weeks. Once I stopped it felt so freeing. Good job! Fingers crossed you can ditch them for good!
