Medela Breast Shells
Wearing breast shells can help protect sore or cracked nipples so that they can heal more quickly without rubbing on clothing. (ouch!)
These breast shells are worn inside your bra to protect your nipples from chafing and friction against your clothing. They have a soft silicone back for a snug and comfortable fit, and are contoured slightly so less visible through clothing.
The front is ventilated to allow air to circulate, which also helps with nipple healing. Gentle pressure helps relieve engorgement slightly.
Bonus - these Breast Shells can collect breast milk leakage rather than wearing breast pads, so that you don't waste a precious drop! Store this milk in the freezer and you'll be surprised by how quickly a stash accumulates. Transfer any accumulated milk to a storage container into fridge or freezer within 2 hours, and wash and sterilise the breastshell between wearing.
Good luck mama!
