Product Description

Breastfeeding should be enjoyable, not painful. O-Cal-ettes are designed to help eliminate the unpleasant side effects of nursing. Simple and easy to use. Can be used prior to delivery to help correct flat or inverting nipples, which allow the baby to latch on easier. Provides relief from swollen, engorged breasts by exerting a slight but constant pressure on the breast to release excess milk. Helps heal tender, irritated, chapped and cracked nipples by allowing air circulation. Protects nipples from sticking to bra or nursing pads and other irritations. Protects clothing from moisture and stains and prevents possible embarrassment due to leakage. Collects leaking milk between feedings. Easy to use and may be sterilized. Economical, reusable and long-lasting. To be used in place of nursing pads. Physician recommended, used by hospitals throughout the country.

Customer Reviews

The real deal Swedish Milk Cups.
Zero
They catch milk like advertised, but they are hard and any collected milk will spill out when you bend over.
Wendy Rickard
Also, they worked great when nipples were sore and needed to heal.

I have used these nursing cups with all five of my babies. They are made of hard plastic, but that allows your nipples to not come in contact with anything but air so they can totally heal inbetween feedings. You do feel a bit "Madonna" when you wear them, but they totally help with engorgement because it allows the milk to leak into the cups which I then save and freeze for later. Also while I am nursing on one side, the milk that leaks into the other side gets saved and frozen for later too. They are awesome if you have mastitis, engorgement, sore nipples, etc. I always give these to new moms that are planning on nursing and even more experienced moms that have had trouble nursing because of soreness, and they all swear by them.

The real deal Swedish Milk Cups. Lots of older women will tell you about them and now it is hard to find this hard shell design. I have tried several other soft shell ones and they do not work as well as these do. The others leak horribly. This is a simple to use cure for sore nipples and easy milk collection.

My wife went through bra pads like crazy because when she fed the baby on one side the other side would leak especially when she had more than one letdown. She was actually using Medela's hard thera shells at first because of sore nipples and they would help catch leakage she could empty and save later, but they were small, have lots of holes, does not provide enough pressure on breast (milk leaks out of hole where nipple is suppose to go) and not sealed enough so where the two pieces join, milk would leak and still soak bra at bottom and gravity makes it worse. The O-cal-ette are bigger (a bit smaller in diameter to your average bra pad) holding at least an ounce and there is only one small hole. Most are terrible in the sense that when you bend over the milk leaks out including these but these cups are better because the single hole is much smaller as compared to even the milkies where the whole top is open. As a matter of fact the holes on o-cal-ette might be too small because when full it is hard to aim the hole in a bottle to pour out milk, but definitely doable and a trade off for less leakage. The cups also have a nice seal, are easy to clean, and much more flattering in bra than the small thera shells.
My wife also says as an added bonus, they helped with her blanching. These cups actually helped her when worn to keep the nipples warmer (for circulation to return) while "airing out" and also slightly moist from milk. Of course if you prefer completely dry nipples then this might not be what you want. As long as you remember to empty it out (because they are just that comfortable that she forgets she has them) they are worth every penny.

Go with the Avent breast shells instead! I got the Avent breast shells as a present and love them, but I was curious about other brands and also interested in saving some money so I tried these O-Cal-ette by Pharmics. The less than $2 savings was not worth it. Here is why: not as comfortable because the entire thing is hard plastic, leaked because the hard plastic doesn't conform to the shape of your breast, hard to open, and unlike the picture you can't see through the plastic to determine how full the collection cup is.

Here is my review of the AVENT Breast Shells:
The Avent breast shells are worn inside your bra and are marketed to collect excess milk and relieve sore nipples and engorgement. THEY WORK! As soon as I got home from the hospital I started using them. As soon as I was done nursing my little one, I placed these in my nursing tank to collect the precious colostrum and also help with engorgement. Once my milk came in, I would collect about an ounce to two ounces between feedings to be stored in my freezer stash.
This is how it works: the soft cushion places pressure on your breast which allows for the excess milk to drip out into the collection cup (i.e. relieve engorgement). It comes with two sets of collection cups: one with holes in the top to allow for air to circulate and one with no holes. I used the one with no holes. I tried the one with holes, but would forget I was wearing them and inevitably bend over and milk would spill out the top--not exactly the relaxing milk bath of Cleopatra.
Pros:
1.) Relieves engorgement
2.) Collects excess milk
3.) Easy pour spout
4.) Small flat spot on front to prevent spilling when taken out and placed on a flat surface
5.) Comfortable, even when sleeping
6.

My nipples are rather large. For reference, I use the 30mm flanges with my breast pump. The holes on this product are too small for my nipples and actually cause more hurt, espeically because the plastic is so hard. Additionally, there is only one venting hole, so I kept getting condensation inside the cup, which seems to conducive to breeding bacteria.

I have been using the O-cal-ette Nursing Cup for 3 months now and coudn't be happier. I didn't have them with my first baby and had to start using a nipple shield while he nursed because I hurt so bad. My son then got used to the nipple shield and wouldn't go back to nursing without it. It was the biggest pain to have to carry around a nipple shield everywhere I went in case I had to feed him. With the nursing cup, it allows my nipples to heal in between nursing while at the same time, draws them out making it very easy for my little guy to latch on.

The cups are made of hard plastic but are small enough to fit in my bra. I am able to wear them wherever I go, however it doesn't look the best in a tight fitting shirt. The cups do have a very small hole at the top for pouring out the milk so I wear a nursing pad on top of that to avoid any leaking when I bend over. There are times when I go to take one off to nurse and it is over half full! At that point I have to lay the baby back down to go dump out the milk. I only save the milk if I have just recently cleaned the cups but I could easily collect 5-6 extra ounces each day if I sterilized them more often. (Maybe I just need to buy another pair so that I can wear one set while the other is in the dishwasher.) All in all, I think they are great!
