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.

    These were invaluable for the first few weeks in breastfeeding while nipples are the most sore. They kept my clothes from rubbing on my tender nipples and allowed air to flow through which helped them heal.

      I used these about 2 weeks before my due date to help draw my nipples out. They worked very well at doing that. When my daughter was born, she had no problems latching on and I believe it was due to using the shells.

            Comments about Medela TheraShells:

            I had high hopes for this product to help relive engorgment and it did just that! But because my breasts were so large it pressed too hard and ended up triggering a letdown and I soaked myself. Also, forget bending over with it. It would be good for women with smaller breasts and for inverted nipples.

              This is a must have product. It protects your nipples of irritation from your clothes or from your bra after breastfeeding or breast pumping. I used it both times with my two kids because my nipple gets sensitive and even sore after pumping.

                    These shells really helped my son latch better! It brought out my flat nipples after wearing them all day and for multiple days. Milk would definitely come out at times so make sure to use a nursing pad in front of them. I only wore them while I was home since it was a noticeable difference and they could be seen through my shirt.
