Medela milk shells review, 6 April 2010
I bought these milk shells after being recommended them by my sister. I leak a lot of milk especially when feeding and the breast pads were just not good enough so I tried out these milk shells. You can collect the milk save it in a bottle in the fridge where it can be kept for a few days. They are much kinder to your nipples than a damp breast pad. The only disadvantage to these shells are that you have to be very careful when bending down low to pick something up as there is a little pouring notch or hole on the edge and if you bend down too far, ie without bending your knees, the milk will run out the top and make an even greater mess than a wet breast pad. I wear them at night but would only recommend it if you sleep on your back or carefully on your side.
