Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver!! I had my first baby 3 months ago and had no idea I would struggle with flat nipple! Breastfeeding was something I planned on doing, but I struggled so bad at first! I ended up working with a lactation consultant and had to use a nipple shield to feed my baby! This was ok for a while, because really I was just happy I was able to nurse my baby! After a while I got so frustrated and annoyed with the nipple shovel because I couldn't easily feed my baby and always had to make sure I had my nipple shield with me or else I would end up with a screaming baby that I couldn't feed! I researched anything I could possibly do and tried multiple things before coming across these! I ordered them in desperation, and within an hour of wearing them I was able to breastfeeding my baby successfully for the first time with no nipple shield! After a week of wearing them I don't even need them anymore and my baby latches on great! He just needed to get used to not using the nipple shield! I couldn't be more pleased with this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge! They should specify size in the description. These are almost 4inches in diameter and about an inch thick. I purchased these because some reviews said they are smaller then Philips avant shields and dont show under cloths. I am a DD size before pregnancy, and they definitely show up as weird protrusions even under clothing. They might be useful to wear on one side while feeding/pumping from the other, but definitely can't have them on all the time. Returned them because that was the purpose I purchased them with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medela soft shells work great! These work great at pulling at preparing the nipples for breastfeeding. Especially if you have inverted or flat nipples. Been wearing for 2 weeks and notice a definite difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They worked! I started using these a week or so before delivery on the recommendation by my OB because my nipples were flat and one inverted also. They remedied the problem and my baby was able to get a good latch. The lactation consultants at the hospital were impressed with how well they worked for me. I continued to wear them while in the hospital after birth and in the first couple of weeks at home to keep the nipples out. After that I didn't really need them for the issue, but wore them from time to time when my nipples were sore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from must have These help when you have sore nipples. It keeps them away from rubbing against anything. I only had to use them for about a month, but well worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good Just got these to correct inverted nipples and so far they seem to work. My baby isn't here yet, but when he gets here these should help out a lot with nursing. Especially since I didn't have anything like it with my first 2 and it was really hard to start out nursing with inverted nipples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breastfeeding success! [...] and had to end up pumping for my son. I wish I knew of these before I gave up. I am due to have another baby soon and was told to use these for a few weeks before going into labor and I can already tell the difference and that breastfeeding my new baby will be more successful than ever!! Yay!! Having to carry around a breast pump is so NOT convenient!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So helpful! I bought these to help with my semi-flat nipples. I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and have started wearing these to help before my baby is born and will continue to wear them after. These are so much more comfortable than the hard plastic ones the Dr. office gave me. A good buy for sure.
