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 only used these one time and will probably never use them again. I thought they would work well but they leak my milk that was caught within the bottom every time I bend forward and they make a mess. They are more comfortable as far as against my shirts etc. vs pads, however, they are also very pointy and look odd.

        I have used these with my middle child. They did not irritate and created a great barrier from my clothing and nipples. I am now 32 weeks pregnant and looking forward to using these again. I will never again use the nursing pads and tell all moms to be to use this product.

        Comments about Medela TheraShells:

        The product works well if you are staying home, although it traps the moisture inside of the shell since your bra covers the little holes which actually enables it to air yourself out. It's also bulky and not discreet, making it hard to wear out in public (it looks like u have insanely large nipples).

              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.
