How can breast shells help cracked or sore nipples?

Breastfeeding is a special time, but it isn’t always straightforward. You may find you have sore or even cracked nipples, especially during the early days, when you and your baby are both learning. After all, your sensitive nipples simply aren’t used to the pressure and suction of your baby feeding regularly. Any discomfort should gradually ease – if it doesn’t, seek advice from a lactation consultant or breastfeeding specialist.
In the meantime, wearing breast shells (also known as nipple shells) between feeds can help prevent your clothing rubbing against tender nipples while helping to promote healing.

  • Soft, snug-fitting silicone back feels comfortable on sensitive skin
  • Ventilation holes allow skin to breathe, promoting healing
  • Flexible, to adapt to the shape of your breast
  • Can be worn all day between breastfeeds
  • Look natural under your clothes
