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 bought the product to help draw my nipples out when my son was having trouble latching due to flat my having flat nipples. I was hoping to be able to ditch the nipple shield and breastfeed without it using the therashells to draw my nipples out. It said to put them in 30 minutes before a feeding but this was hard to remember and wearing them all day caused me to leak excessively. I did not try the shells for crack nipples which are supposed to save them from rubbing on your bra. I would not recommended them for the fact that they caused leaking and it was annoying to me.

        Comments about Medela TheraShells:

        These actually didn't arrive in the mail until my baby was a couple days old, since she came a few days early, and let me tell you I was screaming for them by then. They did exactly what I needed. My only gripe is that after awhile they leave rings around where they have contact with your skin, which can also get uncomfortable, but overal the benefit far outweighs that concern.

          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.

              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.
