Weaning from the shield!

So proud of myself and my little nursling.

We started using a nipple shield about a week ago due to cracked and bleeding nipples. Well, my right nipple is pretty much entirely healed and so today i decided to try nursing her on the right side without the shield. She gets a little confused at first, trying to latch on to something that used to be much bigger. But after a few seconds she gets it and latches on great! perfect latch, and her suck is not as powerful as it used to be (which is good, because that was our main problem before). No more pain!

Now hopefully we can achieve the same thing on the left side in a day or two after it's entirely healed. :-)
