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:

    These are an absolute must if you suffer from sore nipples for any reason and nothing seems to be helping. I had thrush and vasospasms and using these to protect my nipples from rubbing on my clothing really helped to relieve the pain of havingy nipples touch anything and I believe expedited the healing process. I highly recommend!!

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      These shells provide instant relief since they isolate your nipples from your cloths. However they are quite bulky and not terribly comfy. The entire nipple plus areola fits through the opening and might get a little sore after a while. Also I wouldn't be able to wear them in public. They are way too obvious. Maybe someone with larger breast could. I have found soft silicon pads more useful and wearable to help with nipple sensitivit

      Disappointed

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      I was very excited about this purchase. As a first time breastfeeding Mom, I thought this product would provide relief for my extremely sore nipples. The product is difficult to fit into a bra. It is quite bulky, and the added force of the bra pushing on the product causes the nipple to be pushed further into the product. This causes the nipple and areola to become engorged, which is not comfortable. The product does prevent the nipple from rubbing against the bra though. Overall, I only used the soft shells once, and was disappointed.

        These helped with the first few weeks of breastfeeding so much! I do have the same complaint, they will fill up with milk and leak over if you are not careful. But, other than that they are a total lifesaver and definitely worth the money!

                This is a must have for sore nipples! I had to discover these in my own and they are wonderful! I have item 4 stars only because they are WAY too expensive. Shop around.....there are cheaper ones out there. It's just because they are medela and all their stuff is pricey.

                  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.
