    5.0 out of 5 stars Good for stopping things rubbing! 26 Mar 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I bought these due to pain in the initial weeks of breastfeeding, and they've been a life line. I couldn't even stand having a shower as even water on my skins was painful. You pop these into your bra to stop any chaffing, and they help with healing by getting air to circulate around the skin - that's what the holes are for. The previous reviewer said that milk leaked through these - and yes it does so you need to be careful but the holes are needed. You can buy another type of shell for milk collection - which looks exactly the same with no holes, it has a spout for pouring the milk into a bottle. Both are made of the same material and can be sterilised.
    I about to buy a couple for my sister who's just started breastfeeding

    The Medela Breastshells worked well to help speed up recovery and reduce pain during the first couple weeks of breast feeding.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great for sore nipples 5 July 2014
    Verified Purchase
    Great if you have really sore nipples and find normal breast pads uncomfortable. Fit nicely in your bra and easy to keep clean. Only draw back is you have to be careful when bending over as milk spils out of the air holes. Not a design fault just something to bear in mind.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Ok for indoors 28 May 2014
    By Jonah
    Verified Purchase
    These felt great when first put them on but very quickly became uncomfortable. You can't really wear them out as quite obvious and the milk collecting in them just feels a little gross to be honest! Effective though and can be bottled if you sterilize them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Just don't bend over!! 9 April 2014

    Good product - an easy way to save precious breast milk from being wasted. Comfortable to wear, although wouldn't leave the house with them on. Just don't bend over otherwise you'll leak the lot!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 9 Aug 2013
    Verified Purchase
    These are a brilliant product if you are suffering with cracked or sore nipples. It means that air gets to them yet still promotes moist healing which is necessary. These ae also great for sore/cracked nipples as they protect them from rubbing on breast pads and bras when they are trying to heal. The only thing i will say is that if you leak a lot of milk like i do, don't forget you are wearing them and bend over....the milk pours out through the holes oops!! A brilliant product which will really help you to continue to breastfeed, especially in those early days.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing for sore nipples and leakages 28 May 2013
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this as some one recomended it to me, it's an amazing product and I highly recomend it. It's a great help for sore nipples not to rub up against your bra or clothes. Also it collects milk that leaks out so while out and about there isnt any wet patches on your clothes. I have tried the breast pads for the leakages but didnt help as much as this did. The holes also help air circulate.
