Medela Soft Shells for Flat or Inverted Nipples

Product Description

fsa-web.jpgMedela Soft Shells are designed to help evert flat or inverted nipples. The flexible silicone backs apply a firm but gentle pressure on the areola at the base of the nipple. This pressure gradually forces the nipple out making it easier for the baby to latch on.

Medela Softshells for flat/inverted nipples can also be used during the engorgement phase. Engorgement can cause the nipple to flatten making latching more difficult. Wearing these breast shells can help draw out the nipple, making latch on easier.

How to Use:

  1. Begin wearing the breast shells during the last couple of weeks of pregnancy. 
  2. Continue to wear them after the baby is born between feedings, until your baby latches on to the breast without difficulty.
  3. Wear breast shells for a half hour before breastfeeding. If discomfort occurs while
    wearing the shells, discontinue use.
  4. Medela Soft Shells are reusable and washable.

*For additional techniques to improve flat/inverted nipples, we encourage you to seek the assistance of a professional International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Learn more about our in-office consults, telephone consults and video SKYPE consults by clicking on the provided link.
