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 hoping this would help with my sore nipples, but they didn't help much. Even more, the shape of them is not eye appealing through my shirt, even with pads over top of them. They're pointy

    Comments about Medela TheraShells:

    This product has been AMAZING. My nipples were so sore and red. After a week of using the shells I could see and feel a huge difference. Plus it helps my nipples stand. Also when your milk drops it catches the milk. Only downfall is if you don't empty them and bend over it leaks out the ventilator holes.

      They work good to protect sore nipples however you can tell you have something in your bra I personally would not walk out of the house with them on as for the back for flat or inverted nipples dont waste your money. I dont have either mine just dont stick out very far and i put them on for an hour and my nipples did not stick out any more than they dod before.

        This product works as it should. My breasts were very sensitive after feeding and this really helped from the chafing of a bra or shirt.

          Purchased to help with nipple pain associated with breastfeeding. Shells allows nipple to be open to air with nuthkmh touching or compressing nipple. Helped my nipped feel better in between frequent feelings.

                These would work better if they didn't move as much or if they had some way to remain in place. The ability for them to move defeats the purpose.

                  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.
