we are on day 3 of not using the nipple shield! such an accomplishment & I am so very proud of my little girl doing so well without it. we faced a few struggles at the beginning of our breastfeeding journey, some that have made me want to quit. we found out early on that she had a tongue + lip tie, which made it difficult for her to latch. we eventually got the tongue tie fixed to make nursing easier. we’ve been using a nipple shield since we started nursing, three whole months ago. having to always make sure that I had one on hand, especially when we went out to places was so frustrating. on days when I would forget to pack one during our outings, we’d have to cancel the rest of the plans for the day to rush home so she would be able to nurse. many failed attempts of weaning her from the shield that just caused her to freak out and scream. I’m just so glad that now we don’t have to worry about that dumb piece of silicon anymore.
farewell, nipple shield 👋🏻 thank you for helping us continue our breastfeeding journey. you won’t be missed, but you will never be forgotten! ✨
