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.

    Comments about Medela SoftShells:

    I'm a new mom, new to breastfeeding and had very sore nipples in the first few weeks especially. I tried hydrogels which helped temporarily but I didn't like the stickiness of them. The shells are great to keep clothing from pressing and causing discomfort, they also catch any leaking in the foam. You do have to clean them at least twice per day or they can start to smell but it is easy to do with quick clean steam bags.

    Product did not work. I wasted my time and money. My milk would leak out of the top holes of the soft shell. Please do not buy this product.

    Comments about Medela SoftShells:

    These soft shells do exactly what they are supposed to do. They've allowed my nipples to finally heal after being sore for 7 weeks nursing through a tongue tie and a case of thrush. They are pretty comfortable all things considered. The only drawback for me is that they still show a lot under a bra, nursing tank, and a shirt. I feel like they would show less if I had smaller breasts (I'm a 34DD) and when I wear them at night they sometimes migrate from where they are supposed to be. Also, neither good nor bad, I was a little shocked at the way my nipples looked all smashed in there...haha seems funny to say but it's the truth. I thought something was wrong at first but they go back to normal when you're not using them, and my husband and I got a good laugh out of it.
    Overall, if you're struggling with sore nipples for whatever reason, I would highly recommend these soft shells.

      sore nipple savior!!

      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!

      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.

      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!
