Directions on use of Mothers Nurser nursing shield are as follows


Before Feeding:
  • After taking the nursing shield out of its package wash with hot soapy water before using the first time.
  • Use warm, moist heat and massage on breast (a hot shower is ideal) before placing the shield on your nipples. This may increase milk flow.
  • Lean forward to allow your breast to fall into its natural/cone shape before placing the nursing shield on the breast aligning your nipple with the inside of the shields nipple.
  • Massage your breast and hand express a few good drops of breast-milk into the shield nipple tip. This may help your baby to get started


Breast-feeding Time:
  • Gently stroke the lower lip of your baby with the nipple of the shield and wait for your baby to open his or her mouth as wide as possible like a wide “yawn.” It may take a few attempts before the baby latches on and begins nursing.
  • Securing a good latch is essential when the mother is using a nursing shield.
  • Let the baby nurse as long as he/she wishes. Then repeat this process on the other breast.
  • Make sure you see your baby’s mouth moving; you should also be able to hear sucking and swallowing noises.


Keeping the nursing shield clean
  • Before and after each use, wash Mothers Nurser Nursing Shield in warm soapy water and rinse, but it is also dishwasher safe.
  • At the end of each day, we suggest you boil or dish wash for good hygiene (having an additional shield on hand may come in handy).
  • Allow nursing shield to air dry in a clean area and store dry with nipple facing up in a clean storage container with a lid.
