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.

    Recommended by breast feeding class. Will protect tender nips. It's a breast feed mandate if you don't want the icky raw feeling of skin to clothing contact.

    Comments about Medela TheraShells:

    These are really nice when you are a pumping mom. They really help with that barrier between bra and nipple. They are comfortable and I forget I have them on and after a couple hours I bend over and the area is filled with milk and the. It's a gush right through my shirt lol. But seeing as though you really can't wear these in public it's not a big deal. You look very strange with these tucked in your bra and nothing hides them lol. I use them everyday and I'm very thankful to have them.

      I find these shields very useful when I have cracked/sore nipples. They give your nipples air to heal without the painful rubbing on fabrics. It was an added benefit that if I was leaky at all, they helped catch the milk :) make sure you don't wear them with anything too fitted or it is painful as they really push into your nipple.

        Comments about Medela TheraShells:

        Started using these for sore nipples. The shield helped to prevent rubbingt on my clothes. They made my breasts look like mushrooms and the baby had problems latching. Switched to the inverted nipple small hole backs and the problem went away. Even with the air vents, they leave my nipples moist which is why they only get 4 stars. Just wish they were more comfortable for sleeping. Luckily they hide pretty well in my bra so I can wear them out and about.

        This product is usefull in letting your nipples get air and not be touching clothing, but they are NOT discreet. They are very visible through clothing.

              Got these to help with flat/ inverted nipples. I was disappointed in them. How is one size and shape supposed to fit all? The inside layer did not even touch the area around the nipple, which defeats the purpose. Also the shape would look very unnatural under clothes if you needed to leave the house while wearing them. Have previous experience with the softshells which conform to your shape and put pressure around the aerola to draw out nipple. I think I will order those instead.
