What are some tips for breastfeeding after a Caesarean?

Nipple Shields

If the medications you are taking are making your nipples so soft that your baby has difficulty latching on, try asking your lactation consultant for a neat little device called a Nipple Shield. It's a plastic cone shaped device that looks like a nipple and fits snugly over yours. This will mimic a hardened nipple and make it easier for your baby to latch on and breastfeed.
