The Pigeon Natural Fit Silicone Nipple Shield is a tool that is specially designed to provide relief to mothers who face issues that may hinder effective breastfeeding. Breast milk is the complete diet for a newborn baby, hence breastfeeding is of utmost importance. However, sometimes, some mothers are met with issues such as inverted, sore or cracked nipples, teething babies, improper latching, etc. that can restrict breastfeeding.
