warning to any mamas giving birth soon
Not a poll
But wanting to reach as many people as possible, lactation in the postpartum unit only had 24 mm nipple shields and that was WAY to big for my preemie. They told me he needs to learn a deep latch but his mouth barely fit around it… I ordered the 20mm ones from amazon, they’re the same length for the nipple part but not as wide and we’ve been using them ever since and he is 10 weeks now. We’re working on latching without it, but it fits way better and is the same mm as the lansinoh bottle nipples so when I have to go places and take a bottle, there’s no confusion. But my flange size is 16 so if you have tiny nipples, get the 20mm and take it to the hospital with you!!!
