Medela 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.
*Additional foam inserts are available for purchase.
