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 was recommended this product by my pediatrician, to help me breastfeed my daughter. They definitely work, and make sure my nipples are not inverted. I wear them during the day, but not at night - I did try at night, but they just made me leak.

        The product does exactly what it says it takes care of engorgement with sore nipples but fashionably speaking it's not as discreet when engorged it shows through a bra and shirt but a great product for the purpose that its intended

          Comments about Medela TheraShells:

          I have only used the small shell, specifically for my flat nipple, not the larger for engorgement. An added bonus is that it catches excess milk. It isn't very big, so it only holds about 15ml. There are so many air holes in the top that if you bend over too far you definitely will leak. Because of how small they are they are very noticeable in your bra.

          Comments about Medela TheraShells:

          I was skeptical of these when I got them at my shower. I found a mommy blog that said they were a life saver. The blog was extremely correct! In the hospital and for the first few weeks of breast feeding my nipples were so sore and the slightest touch hurt. These were amazing. I purchased a cupped nursing bra and it helped to hold them in place. I'm on my fourth month of breastfeeding and if I get a sore nipple I pull these out. They are dishwasher/boiling water safe.

          Comments about Medela TheraShells:

          Ok, these cups/shells are meant for sore nipples and inverted nipples. I bought these cups for a different reason. I never had issues with inverted o r sore nipples ao I can't really speak to how well it works for that purpose, although it seems like it would work great for those 2 problems. I bought these cups to catch breast milk fro mm the opposite side I was feeding from. I use the inverted nipple attatchment and place it on the opposite breast that I'm feeding ftom and it catches the milk let down on that side. The reason why I'm npt giving it a five star review is, it is kinda small and I always spill the collected milk due to the 9 vent holes on the front of the shell. I recently saw that my friend had a much bigger shell, teice the size of the medela shell and it only had one vent hole and it worked much better for the purpose of collecting milk. Also the medela shells are obvious, and make your breasts shaped weird, so I wouldnt wear them out of the house.
