Show/hide product description

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 color-changing quality of our Shield Maiden: they temporarily change color when exposed to heat. Shield Maidens are colorless 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 blue 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.

Wait ... we're going on and on about ourselves! Why not hear the rest from Katie Dunning, the renowned lactation expert who was the inspiration for this product? (She also provided us with tips & tricks for using it as effectively as possible that comes with the Shield Maiden!)

Hello hero moms!
The best part for any exhausted new mom is the color-changing quality of the Shield Maiden: It's temperature-sensitive to temporarily change color when exposed to heat. Shield Maidens are colorless 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 blue when at room temperature.
This transitional tool helps...
  • Preemies without the physiological development to effective nurse
  • Overly slow or fast let-down — helps regulate the amount of milk received by the infant
  • Allow damaged nipples to heal
  • Teach a baby how to nurse with flat or inverted nipples, especially if they’ve become accustomed to a bottle
  • Resolve nipple confusion from bottle-feeding
  • Address tongue-tie, lip-tie, or abnormal palate
Advantages of the Shield Maiden...
  • The color change makes it easy to find
  • The texture is more like skin
  • More malleable than standard silicone which helps avoid painful pinching
  • The softer tip is less foreign to the baby and causes less gagging

 Each Shield Maiden set includes:

    • Two nipple guards
    • A carrying case that allows you to keep your Shield Maidens safe and clean on your nightstand or easily clipped onto your diaper bag when you're on-the-go

Shield Maiden nipple guards are 24mm, the most universal, standard hospital distribution size. Our decision to make the shields 24mm was also based on testing by 100 moms with different breastfeeding situations and needs. Due to the material components and design of the shields, it was the most preferred size. Contact us for sizing information or with questions about Shield Maiden nipple guards.

Disappointed

I was super excited when I found this online bc the other brands are killing little man’s skin. I did see that some others were upset about the size but I ordered anyway. The size is huge and didn’t even fit into my little mans mouth. I would have loved this if we could actually use it. The feeling was so much better on my nipples. Please make more sizes so others can enjoy.

When my daughter was first born she had difficulty with latching and it so painful that i seriously thought i would need to quit breastfeeding. this shield helped her figure out her latch and also helped me heal so now i don't really need it except for when i'm having other soreness and it STILL helps tremendously. highly recommend. simple and easy to put on

This nipple shield is fantastic! In just one day our little one with a lip and tongue tie went from difficulty feeding to full feeds. My nipples are less sensitive and we have a happy full baby. The design is ingenious with the softer silicone and use of easy. I’ll be recommending this to every mom.

Game Changer!

I am so beyond grateful that Katie shared these with me just a few days postpartum. My son had a lip and tongue tie and was causing a lot of damage to my nipples. After using these just two days they were so much better, and after a week we are having no difficulty or pain whatsoever. I wish I’d had these with my first son! They are a brilliant invention.

So grateful!

I had been using another type of nipple shield and never realized there was something better out there. The Shield Maiden has helped my baby and I still be able to breastfeed through healing nipples and tongue ties. Im typically in tears and ready to give up by this point but this shield truly makes a difference and im so grateful for it. The color changing effect is really cool. It also fits so much better and more comfortably. The other one was a stiffer material and would hurt just putting on. The softer material of the Shield Maiden is much nicer for me and baby because it feels like a more natural nursing. She's not just chewing on a hard plastic shell. And because it's softer I feel like she eats more without getting tired as quickly. I wish I had discovered this product 3 babies ago!
