How do I clean and store the nipple shield?
To clean a nipple shield, rinse it with cool water, wash it in warm, soapy water, and then rinse it with clean water. To clean the holes, mothers can use a clean toothbrush on the outside of the nipple shield and then flip the cone inside out to get access to the holes from the inside. Let it air-dry on a clean, dry surface. Nipple shields can also be washed on the top rack of a dishwasher. Nipple shields can be sanitized by being placed in boiling water for 2 minutes. Nipple shields are easy to lose; mothers may wish to store them in a brightly coloured container. Replace a nipple shield if it becomes discoloured or damaged.
