Hello fellow Moms. I'm Eva... my lil' man's name is Leo and he's nearly 10 mths old.
Here's my question.... Has anyone been successful at taking away a nippleshield while continuing to breastfeed? I've used a nippleshield since he was 5 days old because my nipple was very flat and engorged so he couldn't get on. But now, my milk has regulated itself and my nipple sticks out enough that I think he should be able to grab on. But he won't... I guess he's used to the silicone barrier since it's all he remembers!
Any suggestions? I'd love to get rid of the darn thing and hopefully have another year or two of breastfeeding with a bare nipple.
