When a baby cannot achieve a good latch, trying to breastfeed can be frustrating and upsetting for both mums and babies. In the early days after birth, mothers may experience engorgement or swollen breasts – a temporary condition that can make breastfeeding difficult or uncomfortable. As a mother, your skin may also stretch so that your nipples become flattened where they used to protrude. If your baby is unable to get a flat nipple into the correct position to breastfeed, getting enough milk is not easy. Using Lansinoh LatchAssist™, mothers can gently draw the nipple out just long enough for baby to grasp the nipple and areola and establish a good latch, which is the first step in successful breastfeeding. Simple, effective and easy to operate with one hand, this is the ideal solution to what can be a troubling issue for new mums. LatchAssist™ even comes with a small case for hygiene and portability.

Directions for use
Before use, wash Latch Assist™ in hot, soapy water. Rinse and air dry. Select the Latch Assist™ size that is most comfortable for you. In order to decide which one is best, check how your nipple fits into the shield. If your nipple rubs along the sides of the shield, it is too small. If there is too much space between your nipple and the sides, it is too large. With your baby in position to breastfeed, gently squeeze bulb and place the shield over and around your nipple. Lightly press the shield down against the skin to ensure an airtight seal. Slowly release the bulb for the desired pressure. Repeat gently until your nipple is extended and your baby can easily latch on to the breast. After use, wash again, rinse and air dry. Discard any milk that may collect in bulb.
Caution: this product contains natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic reactions Please note that for hygiene reasons the Latch Assist™ is a single user product.
