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:

      Overall a good experience. I was able to keep anything from touching my nipples and for them to air dry. Down sides I found was they are noticeable if you wear them during the day and it is difficult to save the milk it collects from linkage.

      Comments about Medela TheraShells:

      They're great to help heal damaged nipples. They are a little uncomfortable and make your breasts look weird through your shirt though. Also, they catch milk and if you bend over, milk will spill everywhere. If you're desperate for relief, buy them.

        Because the box was sealed I was unable to see the actual size of the product. Based on the details on the box I was not sure of the exact use of the product and didn't find any instructions or additional details on how or Why to use the product.

          No one ever tells you how painful breast feeding is in the beginning. It is truly hard and painful work. These really helped ease the pain in the beginning as we were both getting used to it.

            I really enjoyed using this product because it helps me not be irritated with the clothing I wore. The only thing I would change is that they were probably a little bit bigger to adjust me.

              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
