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.

      I pump exclusively for my child. After having a pump attached to you 6-8 times a day, even holding your child close can sometimes be painfull. After wearing these for just a day the soreness decresed dramatically.

        This is the second time I use these. I used them 8 1/2 years ago too due to the same problem; cracked nipples. It's so painful to nurse and the pain continues after and with these shells it's aliviated by not letting anything touch the nipples.

          Comments about Medela SoftShells:

          I bought this product to create distance between my nipples and clothing while I used an ointment for healing my cracked nipples. Before using the soft shells, the ointment wiped off easily on my bra, and I felt like I wasn't getting the full benefit from the ointment. The shells were easy to use and did the job perfectly. They were discreet under clothing, so it didn't look like I had plastic domes underneath my shirt - nice. I would recommend this product.

            Comments about Medela SoftShells:

            My baby had an extremely strong suction method - every single nurse that attended to us after my delivery noted it - and destroyed my nipples within the first day of nursing. I was cracked and bleeding, and although I had lanolin to use, any clothing touching me was extremely painful. I got a pair of these and finally found relief because nothing rubbed against my skin. My nipples were able to heal so I resume breastfeeding. These were a total game changer for me. Without them there's no way I could have continued nursing without these!!
            I see others commenting that they are noticeable under clothing, I totally disagree. I wear these with a nursing bra and there's no way you could tell. I also find them comfortable, in comparison to the extreme pain I was in without them.

            I wanted this to prevent my sore nipples from rubbing on my clothes, but instead my sore nipples were just smushed against the hard plastic shell. Also, the directions say not to use at night which is when I need something the most.

            I didn't know what to expect with these. I just needed help as soon as possible. My nipples were sticking to my bras and shirts and the skin around them was raw... It could never heal. If the baby wasn't nawing on then then my clothes were tearing them up. This product have me sigh time in between feedings to let my nipples hear or at least get a break so they weren't so painful. Thank you

            I should start by saying that I'm a size 36GG normally, due to me nursing I'm up to 38H. That being said, when I put these on, it is very obvious that I'm wearing them. However, I'm not wearing them for sore nipples, I only put one on the breast that's not breastfeeding while I'm feeding my son with the other one. I just use it for leakage while breastfeeding, to collect milk and save it. For THAT purpose, for me, it works. I could not wear these out, on top that the shells are hard. I'm just happy that this type of product exists.

            I had super sensitive and sore nipples. It hurt to have anything touching I bought this product in hopes of it helping them heal and it did. My scabs no longer got ripped off while feeding. The only con was I would forget I was wearing and any expressed milk would spill out when I bent over
