Hi! I am new, and so excited to get to discuss things with other women! I have a 5 month-old, and have breastfed him since day one. The only way I've been able to get him to latch on and eat is with a nipple shield. (Due to my flat nipples.) This isn't how I'd want it, but I really believe that it's important for him to be breastfeeding, and if that's what I have to do to accomplish it, I will. I am wondering, however, if anyone has been able to successfully wean a baby off of the nipple shield. I have tried to get him to latch without it, and he just won't. Any suggestions? I would love to get rid of it altogether, but I'm not sure how to and still get my little one enough to eat! Any advice would be fabulous! Thanks!
