Boob Scoop

Boob Scoop: If you need to use a nipple shield, it's important to make sure it's a good fit for you and also for your baby, especially if he is preterm. A nipple shield that is too big for a baby can cause him to gag and in turn result in an aversion to the breast. When using a nipple shield, it is always recommended to work with a Board Certified Lactation Consultant to assure that your milk supply is adequate and that your baby is feeding well.
