These are really an amazing product, and they absolutely saved me. I developed a fissure on one side, and breastfeeding was excruciating on that side. I finally bought these, thinking even if they helped a little, they'd be worth it. But I completely underestimated them! The first time I wore them, I noticed improvement. In less than three days wearing them (during the daytime only, in between feedings), the fissure healed completely, and feedings became painless again!

They are quite large and noticeable under clothing, and once healed, my nipples became too soft when I continued to wear them for the majority of the day. Now I wear them for an hour or two every day, just to give my nipples a rest, and they work perfectly for that, as well. I have noticed that if I start to leak and am wearing them, when I lean over, the excess milk will sometimes spill out the holes in the top - so keep an eye out for that, but, again, I wouldn't wear them in public, anyway.

Despite the minimal cons, I gave these five stars because the difference they made for me in such a short period of time was absolutely unbelievable. I would highly recommend these to any woman with even slightly sore nipples - they're incredible!

I was instructed to use these by my lactation consultation to help draw out my inverted nipples. They are uncomfortable to wear and look un-natural under your clothing. They pull out so much milk, I was having to change out the cotton in them every few hours, otherwise it would overflow and get onto my clothing. Not really worth it. Use a nipple shield instead.

sore nipple savior!!

By teweller

Comments about Medela SoftShells:

I wear these during the day. It keeps clothing from touching and makes them feel better when it comes to nursing. Captures leakage. Allows air to move around the nipple. It does look a little odd under clothing but I don't mind. If you leak more than the sponge will absorb than don't bend over it will leak out the air holes.
These are very comfortable and I am great full for this product.

great product. BUT!

By breast feeding mommy

from bronx,ny

Verified Buyer

Comments about Medela SoftShells:

I was recommended this product by my doctor because I had developed a breast infection while I was breast feeding. The soft shells worked great with keeping my nipple out (since I have flat nipples) and worked great as a milk storage. It would collect any milk that was coming out. The one thing I didn't like was that you have to be very attentive of how full the cup gets because if it gets too full the milk will come out through the wholes and wet your clothes.

awesome product

Comments about Medela SoftShells:

Makes my nipples feel much better! No rubbing on or sticking to my shirts anymore. Vent holes are nice. The only problem is they dump leaked milk out of holes when I bend over to pick up baby. Benefits greatly outweigh this problem!

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Leaks

Best Uses

  • Everyday Use

Comments about Medela SoftShells:

This product has some advantages such as keeping bras/breast pads from rubbing against sore nipples. However, I found that they applied just enough pressure to cause my breasts to leak which creates moisture in the shell and prevents your breasts from actually being dry! I also would not recommend wearing them in public because if you have leaked and lean over you run the risk of the milk running out of the air holes at the top and making an embarrassing mess! Overall I found them to be more hassle than they were worth and sincerely wish I had saved the 20 bucks!

    Comments about Medela SoftShells:

    I was to the point of almost throwing in the towel from nursing due to the discomfort. This product changed everything by giving my nipples a break and time to heal from nursing and pads rubbing inbetween feeds. The shells are comfortable to wear and surprisingly not noticeable under clothes...I highly recommend this product.

            Relieves and helps heal nipple soreness and cracking by keeping the pressure of your bra/shirt off the nipple and allowing it air dry.
            Beware of bending over, the pressure of the shell makes you leak more and if yu bend over you'll get an unexpected shower through the vent holes.
