Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved them:) Bought them to use while single pumping, caught a lot!:) don't lean too far forward or it'll spill out the top though. Worth buying:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shields! Really great product to use if you have scabed nipples from breastfeeding. They prevent your clothes from sticking to the scab and causing it to get ripped off every time you go to nurse your baby, and the best part is that you don't even look like you're wearing nipple shields (I made sure of that before leaving the house while using these). They come with a little sponge to place inside the shield to catch/soak up any milk that you leak, but once that sponge fills up the rest of the milk just pools up in there and if you lean forward to much it will spill out through the air holes, but that's about the only draw back and it can be avoided. Overall amazing product, and will really help speed up your healing time, definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from milk catcher hack I wear one on the opposite side when nursing to catch all the milk that would otherwise be wasted during the let down phase. Must be careful not to move too much or the milk will spill since the air holes are many and large. Remove promptly and dump into a bottle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average These did help protect the nipple from the friction of a bra or shirt, however the suction from the cup kept the nipple large after pumping. This made the nipple just as sensitive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Life savor for nipples The typical nursing pads would stick to me when I was already sensitive and hurt when removing the pad. My nipples would also be smashed with the pad and bra making latching more. However, since using these "cups" (as I call them), my nipples don't get smashed and the silicon back doesn't stick to me. They are truly a life savor. The foam pads absorb a lot but do have to be rinsed from time to time and during heavy milk flow days sometimes there is milk just floating in the cup so if your not careful taking it off you can have a big mess, or if you bend over to pick something up you might start dripping milk from the top of the cup where the air holes are. But this really on only happened during the first few weeks when excess milk production is at it's peak, otherwise the foam pad is able to absorb it all and just needs rung out each time you nurse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! These were a lifesaver when I started nursing! Wish I would have had them with me at the hospital with me for immediate use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesavers These little jewels are lifesavers. They get you through the incredibly painful nursing that sets in at about day 7-10. They allow your nipples to heal with help from the air circulation, compared to being covered up with a nursing pad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really provided relief when I needed it These shells were a real life saver. My nipples were extremely sore and abraded from nursing my tongue tied baby. Touching anything, even air was painful. Wearing the shells allowed me to wear clothes without pain and did promote healing. They do leak milk everywhere if you bend forward so you would benefit from wearing a pad over the holes. They really where not that noticeable under clothing on me. I only wish they had a little deeper reservoir as they still touched my nipples when I wore them, but there was no friction and they didn't stick to my wounds.
