    I never understood how to use it and it was uncomfortable Aug 15, 2019

  • Worked great in the early weeks when it hurt for my nipples to touch a bra or shirt and also helped with inverted nipples Aug 09, 2019

    I had very sore nips and I felt they were getting irritated all day being smooshed in my bra and under clothes. I thought this would help but it irritated them even more. Maybe they were too small. Aug 09, 2019

    For the first weeks after starting to nurse this are the best, it does help you but after you get used to it you don't use them any more Jul 29, 2019

  • I love that these make flat/inverted or sore nipples pain-free and ready for nursing. I wear these in my bra every day! Jul 24, 2019

  • Great when I first started nursing and I couldn’t stand anything to even graze my nipples. Jul 11, 2019

  • I didn’t love these. The space to put your nipple in would be pushed to hard with my bra and always ended up hurting me more than helping. Jun 27, 2019

    These are great for catching milk from the breast that my baby is not feeding on early in our breastfeeding journey. I was able to start saving milk early! Every little bit counts Jun 22, 2019

  • These are so convenient! I like that they fit in your bra so it’s not in the way of my baby while he nurses the other side. Easy to clean and assemble. Jun 20, 2019

  • These were so critical during the first few weeks of mother hood! My nips were so sore and these helped give some relief. Truly they were a lifesaver! May 10, 2019

    So helpful for sparing sore nipples from rubbing in your shirt and bra. Highly recommend if you're dealing with soreness. Apr 25, 2019

    Used these when I was pumping. My breasts were tender and leaking. These were a must need when I went back to work. Apr 04, 2019

  • Great for sensitive nipples with breastfeeding. Mar 19, 2019

  • These were hard to get used to but did help draw my inverted nipples out. Mar 10, 2019

  • Life saver those first few weeks of nursing. These helped keep my nipples moist after applying cream so I didn’t crack or get blisters! Jan 09, 2019

  • These are a must have for newly nursing moms. They help heal sore, cracked and damaged nipples after learning to nurse. Jan 04, 2019

  • I did not like these, the hospital gave them to me when I was struggling learning how to breastfeed my first baby. They did not help me and were very uncomfortable. Jan 03, 2019

  • These were given to me at the hospital to help bring out the shape of my nipples and made breastfeeding easier. Good for catching milk and for women with flat or inverted nipples Dec 29, 2018

  • I swear these helped my cracked nipples to heal, but they pressed on my breasts so they leaked constantly. The pads were always soaked so I really couldn’t wear them for a long amount of time. Dec 29, 2018

  • These shells are the only reason I was successful at nursing my son. They comfortably adjusted the shape of my breast so that he could latch perfectly every time Oct 20, 2018

    Was given these at the hospital. They seemed kind of pointless, but in the beginning when my nips hurt, it did keep fabric off of them which kept them from getting further irritated. Sep 06, 2018

  • Wonderful remedy for cracked/sore nipples. Instant relief and quick healing! Allows for airflow without leaking everywhere. A bit tedious to clean, but well worth it. Aug 20, 2018

  • These are good if you have nipple irritation and need to let them breathe to heal! Aug 19, 2018

  • I got these at the hospital to help the nipple pop for baby to latch onto. Really worked for me. Only had to use for a few days and then I didn't need. Jul 10, 2018

    • Sandra L.
    • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Great idea in theory. Must be worn inside a bra but after a while, the suction felt uncomfortable. Jul 09, 2018

  • Left a circular mark on my nipple, didn't seem to help my discomfort Jul 05, 2018

  • bought this after rec from LC in hospital for “inverted” and sore nipples. They’ve been a lifesaver and made it much more comfy to wear a bra again but I have had some irritation and itching from them Jun 24, 2018

  • These were good in the beginning when I was so sore, I couldn't wear shirts or bras. But they would leak constantly and kind of hurt (my nipples are on the larger side). Jun 18, 2018

  • I used these at night time so when my daughter didn’t wake up to eat, the milk would save instead of dripping out all over my shirt. I would change every four hours so milk would still be good. Apr 30, 2018
