my son was 2 weeks early and very tired from traumatic birth and jaundice. I also have quite flat nipples and he found it very difficult to latch on. After 5 days of persisting with 3 hourly feeds and a child who couldnt quite get it, so would just nore at my boobs, they were very soar andi was ready to give up. Someone sugested nipple guards they have worked very well and we have both been a lot happier since.
It is much easier but i feel that i am cheating and have read that there not good to use and hard to ween off.
Has anyone used them and have any advice???
