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:

        Got these to help with flat/ inverted nipples. I was disappointed in them. How is one size and shape supposed to fit all? The inside layer did not even touch the area around the nipple, which defeats the purpose. Also the shape would look very unnatural under clothes if you needed to leave the house while wearing them. Have previous experience with the softshells which conform to your shape and put pressure around the aerola to draw out nipple. I think I will order those instead.

                Bought these to keep my bras from staining while useing gentian violet to treat thrush. Worked great but warning if you leak make sure you place nursing pads high enough to deff cover the vent holes otherwise if you bend over it will get messy

                  I received these from my midwife after giving birth. They were wonderful at home because during those first few days... HOLY ENGORGEMENT! They also were great for keeping my tender nipples free from being rubbed on my clothes. But I couldn't wear them in public. It was ridiculously obvious there was something in my shirt. Then once my milk came in, the pressure these produced on my breasts expressed SO much milk. The lips only held so much and I had that much and more... I would recommend these during the first weeks after giving birth and you aren't leaving the house anyway...but after that. No.

                    I was having a hard time with breastfeeding and suffered from cracked nipples, engorgement, sore nipples and blisters, all at various times, sometimes together. I kept trying new things searching for relief. I bought these a week or two ago and have used them both during the day and at night. They do a good job of keeping the nipple dry and exposed to air to help with healing. But they are a bit uncomfortable sine they push against your breast under your bra and they create an ood shaped bump, so I wouldn't wear them in public. Otherwise a good choice for helping with nipple issues

                        I like to wear these cups when my nipples are sore from either pumping or feeding and my breasts are full. The cups are nice because you can just dump out any milk they gather and rinse the cup and replace them in your bra. They cut down on disposable pads you are purchasing or washable pads you leak through and have to replace often. Some complaints I have would be there are to many holes on the front so if you have leaked a decent amount of milk you can't bend over even the slightest bit without spilling all the cups contents. Also take into consideration when buying a bra if you plan to wear these on a daily basis. If your bra fits right when your breasts are full then these may be painful to wear because of the added space they take up in your bra. Because of the problem of spilling the milk collected in the cup I kinky give this product 4 stars, otherwise I really like these cups.

                        I only used these for the sore nipple function. They stayed put, didn't slip. If they are uncomfortable I just readjusted, usually pulling my nipple to point down helped. Not good for collecting milk. And they look weird under my shirts.
                        Overall, they helped my nipples feel better.

                          I had terribly sore, cracked, and bleeding nipples as I started breastfeeding my first baby. I tried soothies gel pads, lanolin cream, rubbing milk on my nipples, and air-drying my nipples, all with only moderate relief. But whenever I wore any bra or clothing, even the light friction caused me significant pain on my poor nipples.

                          Finally I read somewhere that using breast shells can provide a pocket of air to help the nipple heal between feedings. I bought these and they worked GREAT!! Super comfy, and my nipples healed much faster! I also found that wearing them (using the "sore nipples" backing, not the "flat / inverted nipples backing", though I assume the other backing would do the same) helped my nipples to stick out more from my breast, making it easier for my baby to latch when it was time to feed again. HUGE relief and I wish I had known about these sooner!!!!!
