A nurse at the hospital recommended this product. As a new mom I had never heard of this product before and did not anticipate how sore my nipples would be at first. Just place over nipples with air holes up and stick one tissue in the outer rim and another squished at the bottom. Remember to change tissues after every feeding because both sides express milk at the same time. The shield does 3 things. One is that it protects from rubbing and any additional contact to the sore area. Secondly it allows your nipples to heal faster by letting air get to them. Thirdly as you become engorged your breast becomes very rounded making it difficult for baby to latch on. This product makes your nipples/areola stick out more so that you don't have to express by hand first and baby latches on easily. This product is a must have for new breastfeeding moms.

I got these to use for both sore and flat nipples. I found them awkward to use, uncomfortable, and overall not that helpful. Others complained that they leaked, but they are not meant to absorb, so I didn't score that as an issue. Sore nipples were treated better with Lansinoh and cotton nursing pads. I ended up using a silicone nursing shield to help with the flat nipples, which ended up helping the sore nipples as well.

Comments about Medela TheraShells:

These shells work wonderfully for protecting sore nipples and allow air to flow around the nipple which helps the healing process. My one complaint would be that they give a domed look to the nipple which looks anything but natural.

        Comments about Medela TheraShells:

        I got these to help alleviate contact with cracked and bleeding nipples. This did the trick, although they look hideously funny poking out of the shirt. So don't plan on wearing them outside the privacy of your home. But they do the job of making sure nothing touches the sensitive area, allowing sores to heal faster. I did have to roll up a thin disposable nursing pad to catch leaking milk.

        I used the small circles for flat sore nipples, and discovered the guards caused me to express constantly, soaking through even heavy cotton pads. Perhaps they work a bit too well...

        I used these for sore nipples to allow air flow while still remaining clothed. I am breastfeeding my two week old and also have a five year old. I am a 36E and cannot wear these under clothes without it being noticeable. You also need to check them often because if they fill with milk and you bend over, the milk spills all over the place.

        Bought these for sore nipples and engorgement. They work for a little while and then they make you leak. They do catch the milk but don't bend over because there are holes in them for ventilation but the milk comes out those holes and you will be soaking wet. Don't wear them to bed you will wake up soaked

          I bought this product hoping it would help my baby go back to breastfeeding as she was having very much difficulty and did not want to latch. My nipples were so sore I couldn't stand it. I tried this product for the first time today and my baby breastfed more today than she has in a month.
