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.

    These shells are so soft.... I had mastitis and it was painful and sore. It helped me a lot and protected from irritation during the recovery... it is a great purchase I made.

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      The nipple shields did exactly what they describe to do. They were very easy to take apart and clean. However, they were a bit bulkier than what I expected. Your chest is already enlarged and adding these makes you feel larger than needed. I would forget I was wearing them after a while. Worth the money if your nipples give you pain from just being rubbed against your bra or if you are leaking a fair amount.

          Simply place the shield over your nipples. It keeps your nipples from rubbing on your bra. My nipples were already so sore from constantly pumping. This product was such a life saver for me. I highly recommend especially when you are needing some relief from the pain.

            I use these "coconuts" when I'm breastfeeding to catch leakage from the breast not being used. While it's nice that it has ventilation holes, I'd rather it didn't. I keep tipping them over and spilling milk. I've tried just wearing these under my clothes to relieve sore nipples but they get uncomfortable and leave a mark on my breast.

            I was actually trying to buy the medela milk saver that catches dripping milk when you are breast feeding. So I ended up never using this item because it had the air holes and obviously the milk would spill out it not carefully handled

              After leaving the hospital determined to breastfeed I was wiling to do anything to get my LO to latch and feed. Even letting him latch on sore cracked nipples .

              I tried cooking gels, nipple cream and good old fashioned prayer to relieve my pain... Nothing helped
              My dr suggested buying nipple shields- I sent my husband running to pick me up a pair.

              What can I say relief at last!
              I'm now able to successfully breastfeed because I finally have pain relief.

              For my next child these are getting packed in the hospital bag !
              A must for any determined breastfeeding mom !

                  I loved these shells! Definitely helped with the sore nipples and clothes not sticking to nipples. The only reason I didn't rate it a full five stars is the inability to wear them overnight.
