small size nipple/breast shield is too large

I love my smaller set of girls.


All they are really made for is producing milk.

We're hanging in there for the longer haul.

Hope that we get to a year of feeding mommy milk.

The biggest downside is the small size nipple.

Even the smallest breast shield is too large and I'm so sore from pumping at work...

Sore nipples
by: Zelda Behr

Congratulation on getting your silver (.Y.) for 6 months breastfeeding.

Working and keeping up with breastfeeding is a great achievement.

A few tips:

* Use an ice pack or a cold cloth to soot the pain.

* You can take Ibuprofen, Motrin, and Tylenol for the pain they are safe to use while breastfeeding.

* Apply Lansinoh Lotion Before feeding or pumping to prevent sore nipples.

Here is a page with loads of tips for moms with flat or inverted nipples...

Inverted nipples

Hope this helps, good luck.
