Weaning from Nipple Shields
When nursing mothers use nipple shields for assistance establishing breastfeeding, there is often a great deal of stress over how to wean from the nipple shields. Using a nipple shield is NOT a "life sentence." Here are my thoughts, advice and tips on weaning from nipple shields.

P.S. -- I recently joined a pretty cool website that gives cash back (through paypal) on your own purchases when shopping online. It doesn't cost anything, but works by sharing the referral income they get when you shop through their links, which they make it pretty easy to do. They don't ask for any credit card numbers or require you to shop with a particular card.
There are hundreds of stores, including some big ones I shop at like Ebay and half.com, Toys R Us and Babies R Us, Gap and Old Navy, Borders and Barnes & Noble, iTunes, One Step Ahead, Disneyshopping, GoDaddy, Home Depot, Macy's, and Travelocity (and MANY more).
It's a pretty clever concept! I thought I'd pass it on since you may shop at several of these stores as well, so why not get some cash back?
