Lansinoh Latch Assist™

Lansinoh Latch AssistIn the early days after birth, mothers may experience engorgement or swollen breasts, a temporary condition that can make breastfeeding difficult and uncomfortable.  A mother can also find that her skin has stretched so much that her nipples, which would normally be protruding, may be flat.

Flat nipples may make it difficult for your baby to breastfeed easily.  If your baby is unable to get a flat nipple positioned correctly in his mouth he may not receive as much breastmilk, despite his best efforts.

In these circumstances it is important for you to be able to gently draw out your nipple so that your baby can properly grasp the nipple and areola in order to establish a good latch.  For women who experience flat nipples, Lansinoh has developed the Latch Assist, a simple tool to temporarily draw out the nipple to enable a good latch – the first step to successful breastfeeding.

Lansinoh Latch Assist Product Features:

  • Simple, self controlled and effective
  • Easy to use – can be used quickly and easily with one hand
  • Includes small case for hygiene and portability

Instructions for use:

  • Before use, wash Latch Assist™ in hot soapy water, rinse and air dry
  • With your baby in position for breastfeeding, gently squeeze bulb and place the shield over and around your nipple
  • Lightly press the shield down against the skin to ensure an airtight seal
  • Slowly release the bulb for the desired pressure
  • Repeat gently until your nipple is extended and your baby can easily latch on to the breast
  • Discard any milk that may collect in the bulb
  • After use wash again, rinse and air dry


Please note that for hygiene reasons the LatchAssist™ is a single user product
Caution: this product contains natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic reactions

Testimonials And Reviews

"Very clear, easy to use & gave the women confidence.  I would highly recommend the Latch Assist as it could stop a lot of women giving up breastfeeding due to flat/inverted nipples when there is a solution in the Latch Assist!"
Judi Fox – Midwife, Essex

"Found this very useful especially when my breasts were engorged as my nipple was inverted making it impossible to feed. However the Latch Assist eased it out and could breastfeed comfortably. A very reasonable price for a good product, a ‘must have’ for breastfeeding mothers."
Sarah Hales – baby Tamsin – 10 weeks old

"It worked very well at drawing out the nipple and made it easier to latch the baby on."
Jo – Midwife, Swindon

"An excellent tool which could save hours of backache for midwives when dealing with flat nipples"
Helen, Flying Start Carmarthenshire
