Our Shield Maiden nipple guards are designed to assist moms like you and your babies facing a variety of breastfeeding challenges. Reasons a breastfeeding mama may need to use a nipple shield include latching difficulties, tongue ties, soreness, or having flat or inverted nipples.
Ceres Chill's patent-pending shields can help your little one properly latch and suckle more effectively. Our unique design allows for maximized skin-to-skin contact between you and your baby. They’re comfortable, breathable, and flexible to help build your breastfeeding success.
But the most AMAZING part for any exhausted new mom is the colour-changing quality of our Shield Maiden: they temporarily change colour when exposed to heat. Shield Maidens are colourless when at body temperature so they don't interfere with a more natural breastfeeding experience. To help you easily find them when they're not in use, the Shield Maidens become a highly-visible colour when at room temperature. How cool is that?!
Each Shield Maiden is made of laboratory-tested, food-grade silicone that is velvety skin-textured on the side used by your nursing baby and smooth on the mama side so it adheres well.
All matched Shield Maiden sets include two nipple guards and a booklet by renowned lactation consultant Katie Dunning. The guide helps you to ensure this is the last set of nipple shields you will need.
If you’re not sure of your size (because really, who is?!) check out our amazing Magic Sizing Kit which comes with one 17mm shield, one 24mm and one 27mm shield. Nipples are cousins, not twins, so you might even use two sizes at once!
