The shells have vented fronts that allow air to circulate around the nipple to also help healing. Soft, flexible silicone backs for maximum comfort. Contoured fronts for discreet appearance. Highly absorbent, washable foam inserts.

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:

    Used for nipple soreness while embarking on the epic journey of breast feeding. Easy to figure out how to use, clean, etc. helpful to draw out your nipple as well for difficulties with latch. Worth the money. Can look slightly awkward under tight fitting tops but a more padded nursing bra does help to conceal it.

        Comments about Medela SoftShells:

        I got these to help with breastfeeding and the pain I was experiencing. I heard great things about this product from friends and decided to try them. I, unfortunately, did not like how inside of the shell would become "steamy" any time my body temperature went up. It caused my breasts to be sweaty and the issues I was originally having became worse. The little vent holes at the top didn't work... As far as I'm concerned. I used them 5 or 6 times but tossed them out after I had the same experience each time.

              Picked this up as a recommendation from a lactation specialist. I have a short nipple and soreness due to poor latching. This saved me. In addition to it helping to elongate the nipple, it also helped with the soreness by relieving the pressure from clothing and nursing bra, it allowed air flow, and it helped with the nipple sensitivities experienced when not covered. It also helps collect leakage. Can cause slight irritation around areola due to suctioning effect or may be due to extreme hot weather.

                I was in the middle of relactating, which calls for pumping every 2 hours, so you can imagine how painful my nipples were. This product is SO easy to use and did a great jobs to keeping my nipples from rubbing on my bra. I would definitely recommend.

                          I deal with Raynaud's and also had thrush. These are fantastic during the 'super sore no one touch me' healing phase. I was a little disappointed to learn they are almost double the price at Babierus than they are at other locations.
