I have a preemie and in the hospital they immediately gave me a nipple shield to nurse him. He would not latch on and we ended up pumping and bottling. He is now finally using the shield as he WILL NOT latch on to my breast. Just wondering if anyone else has used a shield and also if you were able to get rid of it. I'm hoping that he will latch on to the breast but not sure where to start with getting rid of the shield.
