Moms who have sore nipples can benefit from wearing breastshells. Breastshells are worn under the bra to prevent the nipple from rubbing against clothing and becoming chafed and further irritated. 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:

I bought these think they would help my sore nipples, but honestly all it did was make things worse. It says to wear them between feeding so when I go to take them off to feed my nipples and areole have been sucked inside for so long that you loose blood flow to your nipples. When you take them out they hurt more than they did before...not happy with this product.

          I had trush and extremely sore nipples. These were a life saver. Discreet under clothes except for the huge jump in size lol easy to use and wash. I do think they caused some blocked ducks because of the pressure but I did not wear them at night and that seemed to help. Every breastfeeding mom should have these on hand. The relief they gave helped me to continue breastfeeding.

          Helps with soreness but they leak

          Comments about Medela SoftShells:

          Came home from the hospital and was very sore as baby was learning to latch properly. I was very excited when I saw these guards. I bought them to let things air out and heal. While they are good for airing out, I did leak into the cups (the foam inserts don't to much to absorb anything). As I move about the house doing things, I find the milk spills out of these cups when bending over. (Happened the first time when I was at the supermarket and that was not good)! Since I am only 2 weeks out from having my second baby, my supply has come in pretty strongly. When I put these guards on they put enough pressure on my breasts that they make the milk come out more. I think these work best if you are sitting down relaxing.

            Saved my sore, cracked nipples!

            Suddenly at 4 months my nipple became really sore, cracked, and bleeding - it would stick to my nursing pad or sleep nursing bra. I was beginning to lose hope that it would ever heal, I did research and found these soft shells. It saved my nipple! It is vented to let air in so the nipple can heal and would allow my APNO to soak in and heal the nipple. Life saver!!

              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!!
