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.

    I got these from the lactation specialist at the hospital before heading home. I had a hard time getting started with breastfeeding because of soreness. These were a lifesaver! Purchased a set with both second and third pregnancies. Skip the ointment and use the shells!

      i was skeptical these would do anything for me./ but i was so engorged and desperate when my husband bought these, i thought "what the heck is this gonna do for me?" lol but they were amazing i would where them with the breast pads during my first month after giving birth. it made the milk come out into the pads and kept me from being so engorged and tender. it helped me so i could finally start getting the hang of breastfeeding and not always be in pain :)

        Comments about Medela TheraShells:

        It really helps with sore nipples and helps reduce irritation. However, I used this product to help relieve the pain due to being extremely engorged and it caused my nipples and areolas to become extremely swollen. Also, if my milk leaked it would just sit in the shells which was kind of gross to me.

          I used this product to protect from rubbing while I was sore. Good design, but does not get as much airflow as I was hoping when worn in bras.

          I read about these breast shells and decided to give it a try. I am a first time mom and am completely new to breastfeeding. I decided to try these to prepare my nipples for feedings, and so far they seem to work. I am 5 months along so i only wear them at night to help my nipples protrude a little more. They also help with sore nipples so they don't rub up against your bra. By the time i reach 36 weeks, i have no doubt that i will be ready for breastfeeding.

          Comments about Medela TheraShells:

          I got these because I was sore for the first few weeks when I started nursing. They kept my shirt from rubbing and let my nips air out, especially during the day. They did end up collecting milk, which then spills out when I take them off or shifted. I tried using a breastpad with it, but it didn't help.

            Recommended by breast feeding class. Will protect tender nips. It's a breast feed mandate if you don't want the icky raw feeling of skin to clothing contact.
