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:

    I have one inverted nipple, which makes nursing a little bit trickier. The shell for inverted nipple really helps draw the nipple out. Perfect for that. What I really like about the shells is that I wear them in between feedings and they catch anyboeaked milk. No milk goes to waste! Finally, I like that they allow air to reach the nipple which allows for a little healing between feeding. Great buy. I feel like I've been able to use them for multiple purposes.

            Therashells are a saving grace for sore nipples. They allow for the protection of your nipples in the beginning of breast-feeding. They may look funny underneath your bra but at this point postpartum who cares! This is the second set that I have bought, one for each child as they are nine years apart. I was able to breast-feed with little to no discomfort approximately 2 to 3 weeks postpartum.

                I was told to wear these to help with flat nipples. I bought them prior to our daughters birth. I did have "chapped" nipples the first couple of weeks but I used breast pads. My bra never stuck to my nipples. I'm not sure when you would use these. Also, they aren't very stealthy. You can tell when someone has them in their bra.

                I bought these on a whim..... they should be on every new mommy list! the early days when my nipples were sore and i was constantly leaking these were a life saver. on one hand it saved alot of precious milk in those early weeks and on the other hand gave my nipples a break and let the cream really soak in.

                        I have a flat nipple and bought these because they were advertised to help flat or inverted nipples and engorgement. They are a hard plastic. It reminded me of what a kids plastic Easter Egg would look like under your clothes. I was disappointed in the material and called Medela since you can't return to the store. They sent my the soft shells specifically for flat nipples for free the next day! I didn't like this specific product but love Medela customer service and I use all of their other products.
