i'm a new mom of 3 weeks and i'm breast feeding my son. i have flat/inverted nipples and was given a nipple shield at the hospital to help him latch on. well, now he's so used to it that i've tried nursing him without it on but he's unable to find my nipple. my question is do i have to eventually ween him off of it and, if so, why?
