Benefits of Breast Shells

The soft, flexible, BPA-free silicone membranes feel comfortable on the skin and adapt to the shape of your breast.

Breast Shells help prevent friction from clothing, reducing discomfort and promoting healing through air circulation.

The Medela Breast Shells allow unique wearing comfort. The discreet shape and the flexible silicone membrane, which is gentle on the skin, mean that they are pleasant and invisible to wear. The ventilation holes in the top of the shells allow air to circulate, thus preventing humidity and promoting healing. The Breast Shells protects sore nipples from further chafing (incorrect positioning of the baby’s mouth around the breast could be a reason for the soreness). Milk leakage is simultaneously collected. The shells can be worn continuously between breastfeeding sessions. If soreness becomes severe or persists, consult a physician or lactation consultant. Avoid wearing at night to prevent tender spots.

Assembly and Use
Put the silicone membrane on the shell. Be sure it snaps on all the way around. Place the assembled Breast Shells inside your bra with the opening in the silicone membrane centered over your nipple. The ventilation holes in the shell must point upwards. We recommend wearing a nursing bra when using a shell; nursing bras are roomier and the shell will fit more comfortably.

Caution: Do not feed the breast milk collected in the shell to the baby. Discard this milk.

Cleaning Instructions
Before first use and subsequently once daily
Place the separated parts in a small pan filled with cold water. Distilled water is recommended – if tap water is used, a teaspoon of citric acid may be added to the water to avoid a build-up of limescale. Bring the water to boil and allow it to continue boiling for approximately 5 minutes. Drain off the water and place the parts on a clean cloth to dry.

After each use
Separate the parts. Shells and membranes should be washed with a mild cleaning solution, rinsed thoroughly in cold water and dried on a clean cloth.

Note
Shells and membranes can be put in a dishwasher or autoclave.

Material
Shell: Polypropylene / Silicone membrane: Silicone

Review by Joyce on January 8, 2021

helped to protect my nipples when it felt really sore with clothing rubbing against it

Review by Dominique on December 27, 2020

using now for sore nipples and definitely helps, but probably need something a bit bigger to

Review by Shuwei on December 18, 2020

Wish I read the reviews before buying cus they r really useful only for the initial 3-4wks post partum when nipples get sore easily. After which, once nipples r used to bfing, won’t be using these shells again. Low mileage :(

Review by Rebecca on December 9, 2020

it does help reduce friction between clothes and sore nipples. unfortunately not suitable for me as somehow it leads to me having a painful clog. wish it could work well for me.

Review by Stefanie on November 30, 2020

good purchase and it is of good use. very easy to use and works great for me.

Review by Sph on November 17, 2020

It does help especially in the first month when you are getting used to breastfeeding and need to air the boobs more often. After that, may not be as useful.

Review by MC on November 16, 2020

to prevent abrasion of sore nips with clothes. Quite comfortable to wear

Review by J on November 11, 2020

I use this to prevent sore nipples from rubbing against fabric or anything else. It serves its function and the silicon is comfortable. Useful for early breastfeeding stage. Note that the silicon cup leaves a circular impression on your breast (but this is nothing painful) and it collects some sweat.

Review by V on November 6, 2020

Great for initial phase postpartum when breasts are engorged and nipples are sore.

Review by Inez on October 11, 2020

The shields are great to keep nipples from touching fabrics while wearing them in the bra. With them, there's no need to put on breast pads as they catch the milk droplets and perspiration too. They have holes to air dry breasts. However, it is encouraged not to use the milk collected for feeding as it could be exposed to the environment for long and combined with sweat.
