Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield
The Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield is a world-first design made of 100% soft silicone, with an extended teat that puts space between your nipple and your baby’s mouth.
If your little one bites down, pulls away, or if you have sore or cracked nipples, you will still be able to breastfeed with ease and comfort. Our Nipple Shields suction onto your breast, giving you a hands-free breastfeeding experience.
Available with a round or triangle base, the Haakaa Breastfeeding Nipple Shield allows you to experience breastfeeding without the worry of discomfort and pain! The round base is larger and suctions on more easily, making it more suited for those who are new to using nipple shields. The triangle base is smaller, but allows for more skin-to-skin contact, making it more suitable for those who are experienced with using nipple shields.
We offer two teat shapes: the orthodontic teat and the nipple teat. The orthodontic teat is thumb-shaped to replicate the shape of a mother's nipple during breastfeeding, making it more readily accepted by breastfed babies. The nipple teat replicates the silicone teat of a baby bottle and is better suited to help your baby transition from breast to bottle.
Our Orthodontic Shield has an opening that's 28mm in diameter for your nipple.
Our Bottle Nipple Shield has an opening that's 23mm in diameter for your nipple.
This product is designed for mothers who are physically unable to breastfeed due to sore or cracked nipples and should only be used in the interim while you heal. If you are able to breastfeed successfully and experience slight discomfort, we suggest using our traditional nipple shields as a protective alternative. If you have flat or inverted nipples, have a look at our Silicone Inverted Nipple Aspirators.

Thank you for your review Shelley :)
Thank YOU Haakaa!!!
Thank you so much for creating this product! I wouldn’t be able to breastfeed without it. My baby gained a pound in two weeks using this where he was losing before. I wish they had told me about it at the hospital. Would have saved so much struggle. One question, why isn’t it recommended to use this long term?
Hi Toma, thank you for this review and feedback. We are so glad that you found our Nipple Shields and that they have helped you in your breastfeeding journey. In reply to your question, our Nipple Shields are designed to help mothers who have latching issues, or sore/cracked Nipples and should only be used in the interim whilst you heal. When you breastfeed without Nipple Shields, you also get more skin-to-skin with your baby which can promote more milk supply. However, it is up to you how long you want/need to use them. We always recommend getting advice from your midwife or lactation consultant if you are unsure.
Great product very helpful
Thank you for the review
Works Like the Pump
Definitely great for a letdown / over supply. Stopped pumping - Supply was low so didn’t quite fill my fussy babes otherwsie a great idea for people that also struggle to feed independently!!
This is great to hear. Thank you so much for this review and feedback, Alarnah, we really appreciate it!
I've tried other shields with my other children but this by far has been the best one. I have 3 of these shields so I don't have to keep washing the one in between feeds. Highly recommend especially for inverted nipples, it helps so much
Wow thank you for the support mama
