    As pp said I used to get bub into position on a pillow in my lap then hold the shield in place until she had got some good suction going.
    The thing that got us off the shields was an amazing private LC who uses baby led attachment. I don't know how to explain but you basically just put bub on your chest & let them root around & carry on until they latch on themselves - none of the shoving them at your boob like some midwives in hospital did to me too! Couple of days of doing this (bit of a PITA cos you have to be patient), now she latches on anywhere anytime. I would highly recommend if you can find a good LC in your area & can afford it.

    Perhaps try putting a bit of lansinoh cream on the inside rim of the shield to help it stick better to the nipple?

    Have you checked with a lc or midwife or child health nurse that the shield is the right size for your nipple?

    An lc fitted me for the shields. Ive tried lanisoh & vaseline to get it to stick, but nothing is really going to work when ds hits it with his face or rubs his face hard into it & basically pushes it off

    I didn't think my boy would ever feed without the shield either. It took til he was 13 weeks, then I just tried one day without it and that was it! Can be so frustrating I know...and it always made me feel so awkward to feed in public cos I was so unco at it! Doesn't feel like it at the moment, but you will find a way that works for you and bubs, just trial and error. Then you will just have it all sorted and bub will be happy to feed without it! :-) xx

    I saw a Lac at Terry White chemist. Only $80 and worth every cent.

    Sorry my advice wasn't much help if you have tried it before.

    I can HIGHLY recommend Loretta!

    I know LC's are expensive but very much worth it in my opinion.

    What I didn't add is that I didn't see a LC. We achieved that goal all on out own with a little perseverance and you can too. Don't fret, you will get there.

    I saw an lc at our local parents and babies unit for free. Worth looking to see if there's one local to you?

    Hey @heartstringz I've posted in other threads about dd and I still using a ns at almost 17months now. Just wanted to add there is heaps of YouTube clips we watched about baby led breast feeding and tips on ns and getting off them. They didn't work for us unfortunately but may help you. You will find your groove, I saw lc, breast clinics and still it didn't feel right, I watched countless clips, read so many tips, but in the end as long as dd was draining my breast and it didn't hurt we just did it our way. Good luck.
