Flat nipples due to breast engorgement or swelling are common for nursing moms in the early days of breastfeeding. Flat nipples may make it difficult for your baby to establish a good latch and therefore may make breastfeeding more difficult. In order to nurse effectively, your baby must be able to grasp the nipple and part of the areola for a good latch. Flat nipples make it harder for your baby to correctly position your nipple in her mouth and this can make breastfeeding painful or unsuccessful.
The LatchAssist is a simple tool to help your nipples temporarily stand out so that it is easier for your baby to establish a good latch, the first step to a successful breastfeeding experience. With gentle, self-controlled suction, the LatchAssist will temporarily draw out your nipple so your baby can more easily latch on and breastfeed.
LatchAssist can be used quickly and easily with one hand while your baby is in position to breastfeed.
Small enough to fit in your diaper bag, the LatchAssist can help make breastfeeding easier wherever you go.
