What is a silicone nipple?

A silicone nipple is a thin, flexible piece of silicone that is placed over your nipple to protect you before breastfeeding. It has holes in the end, so your milk can pass through them to your baby. Some mothers are concerned that a barrier between them and their babies can interfere with the intimacy of breastfeeding, which is why Medela's Contact ™ silicone nipples have an open section, to ensure you still enjoy it a lot that special skin contact.

 

When to use silicone nipples

The three main circumstances for using silicone nipples are:

If you have sore or cracked nipples, or have nipple pain.
If you have flat or inverted nipples.
If your baby has problems with the nipple grip and is not drinking milk well.
Your breastfeeding consultant or breastfeeding specialist can advise you on whether or not silicone nipples are suitable for you and can also help you with your ongoing breastfeeding needs.

 

How to use silicone nipples

After washing your hands with drinking water and drying them well, grab the wings of the Contact ™ silicone nipple to put it in place. Moistening the silicone nipple with drinking water will help it stick. See the Contact ™ silicone nipple instructions for complete details on how to place them. The silicone nipple should fit snugly against the nipple. Medela's silicone nipples come in three sizes, so you can find the best fit for your type of nipple. Our practical size guide has more details. Remember that you need to clean them after each use and disinfect them once a day. It is often easier to use a microwave sterilization bag. See instructions for cleaning and disinfection details. Contact ™ silicone nipples come in a convenient carrying case, so you can keep them safe between uses.

 

Silicone nipples for sore nipples

Sore or cracked nipples can have numerous causes, so it is important to know the underlying cause before deciding what to do about it. For example, if you have sore nipples you may want to try hydrogel pads or nipple protectors first, as well as seek more support for breastfeeding. If that doesn't improve the situation, Contact ™ silicone nipples can protect your nipples while still allowing breastfeeding. Made of ultra-thin and soft silicone, they are gentle even for sore, dry or cracked skin.

 

Silicone nipples for flat or inverted nipples

If your baby has flat or inverted nipples, your baby may find it difficult to hold the breast, especially when it is small, but that does not mean that breastfeeding is not possible! An inverted or flat nipple may not touch the roof of your baby's mouth during a breastfeeding session, which may mean that your sucking reflex is not activated. Contact ™ silicone nipples can help by increasing the reach of your nipple. And since they have no flavor, your baby is not likely to taste anything different when using them.

 

Helping your baby to take the breast

As summarized above, using a silicone nipple can provide a larger and firmer target for a baby who is struggling to hold the breast. Your breastfeeding consultant or breastfeeding specialist can ensure that your baby is holding the breast well when using the silicone nipple. You also need to monitor your baby's weight gain to ensure that your milk production meets your baby's needs. In general, silicone nipples are a short-term solution. Over time, as your baby's sucking gets stronger and you get used to breastfeeding, you may start to discard the silicone nipples.
