Nûby™ is making breastfeeding easier and more comfortable. The Nûby™ Nipple Protectors are designed to help protect sore or cracked nipples and minimize pain during breast feeding. They are made of soft silicone which provides a safe barrier that protects the nipple, but is thin enough to maintain a natural feel for both mom and baby.
Why you may need a Nipple Protector: Overactive Let-Down: Babies sometimes choke and pull off the breast due to overactive let-down. The Nipple Protector reduces milk flow for babies, allowing the baby to learn the proper sucking and swallowing techniques.
Latch-on Problems: In early weeks, some babies have trouble latching on. The Nipple Protector can act as an in-between stage until the child learns the proper way to nurse.
Inverted/Flat Nipple: Babies can have latch-on problems with flat or inverted nipples. The Nipple Protector gives the child more to latch on to until the nipple is drawn out, and normal feeding can occur.
