    How do I select the right size Philips Avent Nipple Shield?

    The Philips Avent Nipple Shield comes in two sizes so you can find the optimal fit for you. Ensure you select the correct fit by following the below instructions:
     

    Nipple Shield available sizes

    The Nipple Shield is available in two different sizes. The standard size has a diameter of 21.6 mm and the small size has a diameter of 14.9 mm. The diameter is measured on the base of the shields, see the picture below.
    Note: The size depends on the size of the mammilla (nipple) and not the size of the areola. If the nipple has 2 mm of leeway, this is your correct fit.

    Note: if in doubt, we recommend that you seek advice from a Health Care professional to find the best size for you.

     

    How to check if you have the correct fit

    1. Apply the shield over your nipple
    2. If centered correctly, there should be 2 mm of space between the nipple and the side and top of the silicone nipple shape (see the image below)
    Note: The correct fit depends on the size of the mammilla (nipple) and not the size of the areola.
