Mamivac Nipple Shields - Protect Sore or Sensitive Nipples

Recommended by Irish lactation consultants as one of the largest and most effective nipple shields on the market.

Benefits for you and your baby:

  • Protects sore or sensitive nipples.
  • Also helps with flat and retracted nipples or with baby's nipple confusion.
  • Due to the unique shape, the baby directly feels the mother's warmth and perceives her smell.
  • Best body contact between mother and child.
  • The nipple shields stick well and are made of thin, skin-friendly and tasteless silicone.
  • Can be sterilised and boiled

Why use Mamivac nipple shields?

Some mothers use conventional round shaped nipple shields when they sensitive and sore nipples. These should be used for a short time only, because they have influence on the natural way of breastfeeding. The round shape covers mum’s skin, and it may happen that the baby refuses to suck when mum is trying to breastfeed again without a nipple shield. This is because the baby does not identify its mother due to the irritation by the nipple shield. The special shape of mamivac® nipple shields avoids this by not interrupting the contact between mother and baby who remembers the natural smell of its mother.

How to use them?

Clean your breast before using mamivac nipple shields. A short massage has the effect that nipples stand upright and make the use of mamivac nipple shields much easier. Turn the soft edges up and press the mamivac nipple shield as close as possible to your nipple. Then press the soft edges to your skin. Wetting the mamivac nipple shield supports the attachment to your skin. Make sure to place the mamivac nipple shield with the flat side up that your baby’s nose has direct contact to your skin while breastfeeding. Then the baby identifies your smell and feels safe. Do not use Vaseline or other creams. For further information regarding the use please ask your lactation consultant or midwife. Prior to using the nipple shields, check them for cracks and proper functionality.

How to clean them:

Mamivac nipple shields consist of thin, transparent and tasteless silicone. Prior to the first use and before any other use in the future, disinfect the nipple shields by boiling them in water for at least 5 minutes. Clean the nipple shields after each use with washing-up liquid and rinse them thoroughly with lukewarm water. With proper use and storage, the mamivac nipple shields have a service life of 2 years. Keep the operating instructions. This product is not a toy. Keep it away from children.

How do you find the correct size of a fitting nipple shield?

Download and print the size guide here. Place the different punched rings over your nipple and check which size you need. The size of the nipple shield depends on the mamilla and not on the areola. Take the measurement in a relaxed atmosphere. If the nipple has about 2 mm of leeway, you have found the nipple shield with the correct fit. If you are not sure, ask your midwife or lactation consultant for support.

Mamivac Nipple Shields: A Blessing for New Mothers

Breastfeeding a newborn can be one of the most rewarding experiences of motherhood, but it can also bring its own set of challenges. If you’re having trouble breastfeeding your little one, Mamivac Nipple Shields are here to save the day! This revolutionary product is designed to help mothers overcome some of the difficulties that can come with breastfeeding. Let's take a closer look at why Mamivac Nipple Shields have been such an invaluable asset to nursing mothers.

What Are They?

Mamivac Nipple Shields are flexible, soft silicone shields that are worn over the nipple during breastfeeding. These shields protect against soreness and pain while providing protection from possible infection. They also provide relief from cracked nipples and act as a buffer between the baby’s mouth and sensitive areas of skin on your breasts. The shield allows for better latching and encourages your baby to stay latched longer which helps reduce engorgement and other painful symptoms associated with breastfeeding.

The Benefits of Using Mamivac Nipple Shields

Mamivac Nipple Shields offer many benefits for new mothers. They provide relief from pain and discomfort associated with cracked nipples or soreness due to improper latching, making it easier for you to continue nursing your infant without worry or fear of pain. Additionally, they promote healthier feeding sessions by encouraging your baby to stay latched longer and reducing the chances of nipple confusion which can occur when transitioning between bottle-feeding and breast-feeding. Finally, they offer increased hygiene since they act as a barrier between you and your baby’s mouth, helping prevent potential infections caused by bacteria or other contaminants present in saliva or milk residue.

For any new mother struggling with her breastfeeding journey, Mamivac Nipple Shields are an invaluable resource that can make all the difference in helping her succeed while still enjoying the experience with her little one. Not only do they offer immediate relief from pain caused by incorrect latching or cracked nipples, but they also provide extra protection against potential infections as well as increase hygiene standards during feeding sessions. The use of these shields has allowed countless mothers around the world to feel empowered enough to continue their breastfeeding journey despite any initial difficulties they may have faced along the way! So if you’re a nursing mom looking for some extra support on your journey, consider giving Mamivac Nipple Shields a try! You won't regret it!

Excellent service on an excellent product. Received a personalised note when it was delivered next day. Would recommend shields as they significantly reduced the pain of breastfeeding but measure before you buy to get the right size.

Would buy from here again

These shields were recommended by our PHN and have been the best purchase I have made.
07 October 2021  | 

I purchased the nipple shields on Monday due to inverted nipples making it impossible to breastfeed . I was stressed and my baby was getting upset every time it came to feed

These shields were recommended by our PHN and have been the best purchase I have made. Baby is latching first time and there is a huge reduction in nipple pain. I could not be happier with them.

I would just like to pass on how impressed I am with both the product and how quickly we were able to pick them up. I was very shortly going to switch to formula but these have now changed that

Many thanks and Kudos on a fantastic product

Bought to help me to continue to breastfeed even with deep cracks on nipples. I was using a nipple shield from my local pharmacy and it was very painful. I bought this and there is a major reduction in pain. Its super thin. It fits my nipple. The products in most shops and big and chunky and are crap. Buy this instead your nipples will thank you as well as your baby and mental health! Also because they are so thin its less likely that baby will get dependent on them for breastfeeding. I'm not concerned about reduced supply from using them either as used them on my first baby with no issues. I can finally stop crying every breastfeed!

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you!
09 May 2020  | 

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you! Just got my nipple shields this morning. I am a first time mother of a now 7mth old and was adamant before he arrived that I wanted to breastfeed but the first few days did not go to plan!!
I was in agnony and my newborn was jaundiced so we had to bottle feed him. I was devastated, until I got a lactation consultant who confirmed I had inverted nipples and needed to use shields. She recommended the Mamivac Cherry ones and they completely changed my breastfeeding journey.

Now at 7 months, my son Rían is still exclusively breastfed and doing mighty!! I managed to get 6mths+ out of the original shields I bought but after a tear in one I thought it wise to invest in some more so we can hopefully go to 1 year feeding.

So a big thank you to you and all the team at Earthmother for providing these vital items.
I also got great use out of the breastfeeding vests....before lockdown, now i don't go out so don't care what state I am in while feeding

These ones were recommended by my lactation consultant. My little girl had tongue tie and these were a life saver for feeding her while we waited to get it fixed and then afterwards to allow my nipples to heal from the damage that she done before we got it fixed. My mum had used shields breastfeeding me and she told me to get them just in case, had I of listened I could of saved my poor nipples from a lot of pain.
