Lansinoh Latch Assist

Has anyone used this? I never had any trouble with my first two babies latching but with my last one I was having a lot of difficulty getting her to latch. My nipples aren't flat, but in the hosp they were. I wasn't engorged, it was before my milk came in. This might sound silly, but I swear it was the was soooo hot in there and I was so hot that my nipples just wouldn't perk . I was putting ice cubes on my nipples to get them to stand up a little, and it was actually helping her latch. The nurse there at the time was being a real _____ and telling me that the baby should be able to draw my nipple out. Well, maybe that's true...but she wasn't, so I had to resort to ice.

Anyway, I found the Lansinoh Last Assist for if I have the same problem. Does it work well? I think its supposed to do the same thing a pump would do, and more or less vacuum the nipple out. Anyone use one and had success? I'd really rather pack this than my pump.
