a latex or plastic nipple that covers your own to continue breast feeding but to keep your own nipples when really sore from getting worse.

It's a dome-shaped "nipple" that sort of extends what you already have. It makes it easier for the baby to latch on, at least it did for us (when he did latch on, it was almost always with a nipple shield!). You can buy them at walmart, meijer, and possibly target, etc.
