Pigeon Nipple Shield We know that mother's milk is the best source of nutrition for your baby, but you may not always be there to feed your child. With PIGEON Breast Pump, maintaining successful breastfeeding would be a breeze as the breast pump allows mothers to release and store breast milk. Nipple shield is used for Flat or inverted nipples; sore or cracked nipples; pain relief when baby latches on and protection against "teething toddlers". The PIGEON Nipple Shield is made from a soft flexible silicone rubber and provides a wide contact surface. The cut-out section on the top of this shield enables baby to be in direct contact with mother's skin and the holes on the nipple are designed to be exactly the same as the mother's nipple.
