I have flat nipples and been wearing a nipple shield to feed LO since birth. I would like to start weaning him off of the nipple shield if possible- it's just so messy and a real hassle. I tried a couple of days ago and he didn't really like the real nipple- hopefully I haven't spoiled him on the fake nipple. I'm wondering if I will have to wear the nipple shield forever since my nipples aren't really going to unflatten. Does anyone have any tips/tricks they used? How long did it take for yours to wean off?
