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.

Caused a rash!

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      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.

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      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!!

      These nipple guards have been so helpful to allow myself time to heal when nursing our 1st son. I also used the other set as milk catchers on the side I was not nursing on. I would definitely recommend this product!

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      It was a comfortable way to allow my breasts to express milk when they became engorged as well as allow my nipples some space. Only problem I had was I forgot I was wearing them and when I'd bend over all the stored milk would spill over my shirt or the floor.

      These were great! As a new mom I had no idea what I was doing and my sister told me about these ( she heard about them from her lactation consultant), and they totally helped my nipples.

      Comments about Medela SoftShells:

      These were a life saver when my daughter and I had thrush. My nipples would bleed and stick to my cloth nipple shield and every time I had to nurse I had to peel it off the shield and it would bleed again. These nipple shield lets them air dry. They are pretty comfortable but a bit bulky and makes you sweat a lot but I didn't find a better product out there.
      They are bulky but you can tell you're wearing something hard and bulky from under a bra and shirt.
