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 used these at the beginning of breastfeeding with both of my children. They are a huge lifesaver when you are so sore that you can't hardly wear a shirt. They also helped with my first child b/c my left nipple was flat and was having a hard time latching. The shells helped healing and help get my one side to not be flat.

        Comments about Medela TheraShells:

        While pregnant I discovered I have flat nipples which could be a problem for breast feeding. I started wearing the shells for a little bit each evening and they seem to be improving. I'll know more once our little one is here and trying to breast feed.

          These are definitely a big help when Breasf feeding the first few days
          . They give your nipples breathing room which is desperately needed after starting to feed a new born.

          Great product for sore and inverted or flat nipples. I have the other soft shells as well and change them as this leaves less pressure on my breast. Does the job well allowing for aeration and helps to elongate nipple. Cons: leaks when you leak and size is odd and noticeable under the bra.

            Thera shields are great! Perfect for nipple soreness and engorgement, wear them all day until bedtime and prevent my nipples from bleeding, chaffing. The shields even are vented and allow for air drying while collecting leaking breast milk before it enters your nursing pads/ bra. Worth the money!!!

                Overall a good experience. I was able to keep anything from touching my nipples and for them to air dry. Down sides I found was they are noticeable if you wear them during the day and it is difficult to save the milk it collects from linkage.

                They're great to help heal damaged nipples. They are a little uncomfortable and make your breasts look weird through your shirt though. Also, they catch milk and if you bend over, milk will spill everywhere. If you're desperate for relief, buy them.
