Life saver!

These are amazing! Not only does it protect my tender nipples, but collecting the let down milk is an amazing feature! Soft pads just absorb and stick to nipples, wasting all that milk! This is my 3rd child and I wish I had discovered them sooner!

Saved my tender nipples!

I received these in the hospital when I first started breastfeeding. My nipples were so tender, so it hurt to wear anything or for anything to touch my nipples. These saved my nipples from a lot of pain! And they caught milk/colostrum that leaked. I highly recommend!! You do have to be careful not to bend over or you spill the milk that is caught.

Lifesaver

Michelle - 2 years ago
These were a complete lifesaver for me. My first time breastfeeding was awful because of flat nipples and the nipple guards made it worse by causing a weird latch for my son. With my daughter, i wore these a couple months before I delivered after reading advice online. My nipples got used to pulling out and I truly believe stretched them out a bit. I had virtually no problems breastfeeding my daughter with these and using certain feeding holds.

What inverted nip?

Mommatobe - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
Due in 6 weeks, and finally bought these. Knew I needed them for an inverted nipple, doctor told me i would need these. They ARE bigger than I thought, but not super noticeable when on. I have DD’s and HAVE to wear them with a bra on, they won’t stay on if I don’t wear one. Worked VERY well for the first time I used them, and I was surprised since I couldn’t get them like that otherwise.

Could have saved myself months of pain if I had used these SOONER!

samanthab - 2 years ago
After 2 months of extreme pain, shallow latch, multiple visits from LC's, breastfeeding support group, tears and feeling like a failure, I could barely breastfeed more than once a day due to the pain and was forced to express/bottle feed almost exclusively. I was very close to giving up, and had just gotten myself used to the idea that we weren't going to get it, and I had tried my best. I figured I'd give these a try, AND WHY DIDN'T I TRY SOONER?!?!?!?! Absolute Game Changer! After 2 days of wearing them, pain free latch and such a happy baby and mama! I have been wearing them a month and there has been no problems with breastfeeding, I still wear them all day, did try to go without for a day, and the pain returned. I don't sleep with them though, and morning feed seems to be fine without them. Only downside, they do look pretty funny, I have DDD breasts and they stick out even more and look kind of like Madonna in her cone bra days, although under a padded bra and loose shirt you really can't tell at all. Will wear them as long as needed! So grateful for these, and would recommend 100%

These are absolutely amazing for getting your nipples to come out if you have flat or inverted nipples! You just put them on & they work all on their own.. you can even tell that your wearing anything. Absolutely recommend.
