If you breastfed & used a nipple shield how long did you use it?

Did you use it the entire time you breastfed or did your child learn to eat without it?

  • I used the sheild for about aweek and it stil hurt when they would heal. So I just sucked it up and stopped using them, and in after a few days my nipples became tough and I didn't need the sheild any more. What I did was air dry after each side and in no time was b/f painful.
