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 used the small circles for flat sore nipples, and discovered the guards caused me to express constantly, soaking through even heavy cotton pads. Perhaps they work a bit too well...

Comments about Medela TheraShells:

I used these for sore nipples to allow air flow while still remaining clothed. I am breastfeeding my two week old and also have a five year old. I am a 36E and cannot wear these under clothes without it being noticeable. You also need to check them often because if they fill with milk and you bend over, the milk spills all over the place.

Comments about Medela TheraShells:

Bought these for sore nipples and engorgement. They work for a little while and then they make you leak. They do catch the milk but don't bend over because there are holes in them for ventilation but the milk comes out those holes and you will be soaking wet. Don't wear them to bed you will wake up soaked

    Comments about Medela TheraShells:

    I bought this product hoping it would help my baby go back to breastfeeding as she was having very much difficulty and did not want to latch. My nipples were so sore I couldn't stand it. I tried this product for the first time today and my baby breastfed more today than she has in a month.

          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 :)

              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.
