how to put on the nuk breastfeeding shield correctly
to find the right size for you, you should ask yourself a few questions in advance,
does the breast attachment feel comfortable to wear?
does the nipple fill the hollow space of the shield?
do the baby's lips completely surround the attachment?

if you can answer these questions with "yes", you have found the right size for your nipple shield and can start using it

follow these steps so that your baby can enjoy their drink

before using the nipple shield, you should wash your hands thoroughly and clean the breast with a damp cloth

the grip of the nuk nipple shields can be increased by slightly moistening them with water or breast milk

for an optimal position on the nipple, pull the contact surfaces of the cone towards the tip to be able to place it easily in the middle; then you can put the contact surfaces back and align them according to the desired breastfeeding position

after each application, you should clean the breast with water to remove milk residues and thus avoid germs

how to clean and store the nipple shield
handling your baby requires a high level of hygiene at all times
after using the nipple shield it is best to clean it immediately with warm water and a gentle rinse aid, afterwards, it can dry in a hygienic environment
you should disinfect or boil the breast shield daily
cover the shield completely with water to avoid damage and boil it quickly

if looked after hygienically, the breast attachment can last

the supplied storage box is suitable for subsequent storage

it is recommended to place the nipple shield in the lid of the box and subsequently close the box, this prevents the nipple shield from being clamped
