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:

    They were a lot bigger than I thought, so not inconspicuous under clothes. The inner ring was tight against me, so it got sore after wearing them for awhile, kind of defeating the purpose. But it did prevent clothes rubbing and no leakage while wearing them.

      I wish I would have had this sooner before my milk came in. My milk came in when I was sleeping in the middle of the night and I was laying on my side so my nipple wasn't protected. My daughter hated eating from that breast because the nipple was not outright, after i States pumping it helare Form the bipolar again. Use the shields until your milk comes in and use it when needed around the house to protect the bupple from flattening. O

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      These were fantastic for giving my nipples a chance to dry and heal in between feedings. They also help erect the nipple so they are ready when Baby is ready to eat again. Only downside, they do cause milk to come out but it conveniently collects in the cup. Just don't lean over with them on bc milk will pour out of the little airholes.

      Nipples touch plastic

        Comments about Medela SoftShells:

        I got these breast shells to help air out my cracked, sore nipples. They never really aired out because even though my nipples are fairly small and not long, too much of the breast goes through the hole and my nipples would touch the plastic in the front and the shells made me leak more, so my nipples were basically wet all the time still. I'm giving them three stars though because they did at least keep my nipples from rubbing on my bra, so that helped. I also think they are overpriced for a couple of pieces of plastic.

          Comments about Medela SoftShells:

          These saved me for the first month after giving birth! My nipples were SO painful that even showering became a drag because it hurt to have the water hit them. I wore these shells in my bra constantly and it allowed my nipples to have a barrier and not rub on anything. Also, they collect milk that leaks out which is great (but be careful when you bend over - it will spill out)!

              I thought that this was a great idea, but unfortunately the plastic caused a horrible rash on my skin which took quite a few days to heal. I tried washing them with a different soap, putting lotion on my skin, even coconut oil, and nothing worked. I really wanted this product to work for me but unfortunately I couldn't find a way to make it happen. Was really bummed I could not return this item because I had opened it, as it's not super cheap.

              My nipples were in pain and breast engorged. I was on the verge of giving up on breastfeeding. I tried breast shields, but that was a waste of money. So my husband found these nipple guards by modela and he saved the day!! It sits over the nipple and keeps it dry while keeping your clothing off the sensitive nipple. It surprisingly helped with engorgement too!! That was a plus because I didn't know it would do that too!! The milk leaks into the guard and relieves the entire breast!!
