Product Description

Product Description

This Comfort Breast Shell set from Avent features ventilated breast shells to protect from soreness and helps relieve engorgement by applying gentle areolar pressure. Gentle, soft cushion backings. Dishwasher safe. 3-1/4Hx3-3/4Wx2D"

Amazon.com

Philips AVENT comfort breast shells protect sore, cracked nipples and provide relief from engorgement during or between pumping and nursing. The ventilated inner shell, padded by a soft silicone cushion, gently presses on the areola, creating a slow trickle of milk. The outer shell prevents leaks, holding the milk until it can be collected or discarded. The silicone shells and pads can be sterilized in any Philips AVENT sterilizer or by boiling.

Shields Sore, Cracked Nipples

Philips AVENT comfort breast shells create a shield for nipples tender from breastfeeding. The soft silicone backing cushion fits snugly into your bra to protect you from chafing. The outer shell fits on top of the inner shell to hold released milk.

Collect Milk While Nursing or Pumping

While feeding or pumping, the closed breast shells can be placed against the non-nursing breast. Gentle pressure on the areola allows for a slow release of milk, easing engorgement and collecting the leaked milk for later feeding. A pouring spout aids in transferring milk to a sterilized bottle.

Release Between Feedings to Relieve Pressure

Comfort breast shells can also be worn between feedings to release a small amount of milk, relieving the discomfort and pressure of unexpressed milk. Only milk collected while pumping or feeding should be fed to your baby, as milk collected over a long period of time can become contaminated.

Easy to Sterilize

The shells and backing cushions can be sterilized with any Philips AVENT steam sterilizer or by boiling. Comfort breast shells should not be worn for more than 40 minutes at a time due to a risk of excess pressure on milk ducts.

The shell that fits on the breast is comfortable.

These shields are great if you are breastfeeding or pump one breast at a time.

Bonus: they catch extra milk on the other side as your feeding baby!

I use these in the morning with the first feeding because I leak on whatever side my daughter is not nursing from. I use them more so the milk doesn't go to waste than to protect my clothing. If I used them for protection of clothing or for sore nipples I would not have rated them as high as I did. First, they are not made for really large breasts. They set nicely over the nipple, but certainly do not cover much more than the areola area. If I were to wear these out, my breasts would look like large mushrooms. They are nice in the privacy of my own home, though. The shell that fits on the breast is comfortable. It is easy to clean and soft. I would recommend these for the use of collecting leaking milk while pumping and feeding only. I would not recommend these to wear out when you are going to miss a feeding and know you will leak. Wear disposable pads. Also, I wouldn't recommend them for the sore nipple problem either if you are large breasted.

With three and five year old children at home, I found it difficult to let my breasts air out for any period of time. Worn inside my bra, the ventilated breast shells allowed me to keep my nipples dry and expedited the healing process. Now that I am back to work full time and breastfeeding exclusively, the milk savers have been a tremendous help. I place one on the opposite breast that I am pumping and it collects the milk that leaks out - usually about an ounce or two. The milk that is collected allows me to cut dowm on my pumping time - and prevents any leakage through the breast pad. I highly recommend this product along with the entite Avent line to all mothers.

These do save mik and allow your nipples to breathe, but there are things to consider before trying...

If you have short nipples you should be aware of the following:
- The back piece has a hole that is not flush with the breast. It is about 1/3 inch from the base of the nipple at the areola, so if you have nipples that are short, the milk won't make it into the cup and instead catches between the silicone back and your breast. If that gap fills up then the milk will go into the cup. MESSY to remove at that point.
- You have to wear a nursing pad over the bottom of these for the reason listed above, or wear a soggy shirt.

If you have large breasts you should be aware of the following:
- These are not shallow, they stick out almost an entire inch. I am a 38DDD and these things made me look like I had GIANT mounds for nipples.
- These will really press into your breasts and may get uncomfortable for anything over 10 minutes.

For all gals with any sized breasts, know this:
- You can only wear them 40 minutes at a time, according to the insert, because they put undue pressure on the base of your milk ducts.
- When I rest one of these shells in my hand it is bigger than my palm, be aware that these are not small or discrete; you would probably only want to use these at home or if you didn't care if people think you possess giant, puffy nipples.
- An hour after I used these my left breast had sharp pains, I PRAY it isn't an indicator of a blocked duct. FYI: I had no pains before using these.

I gave 3 stars because they do what they say, just not very comfortably. But if you have perky & petite breasts with long nipples, these may work really well for you.

I put this item on my registry based on reviews from other nursing moms. I didn't know if I would need them as this is my first time being a mom and of course, new to nursing, so I registered for them "just in case". Thankfully my friend bought them for me and at the beginning of the first week my nipples were extremely sore and developing scabs. A lactation consultant recommended exposing my nipples to air as one way to heal them, so I opened the package and my nipples were aired and protected from my bra and clothes rubbing against them.

I wore these literally all day and began pumping. In about a week I was healed! I also noticed that as I wore them it collected milk as I fed my baby or during my sleep, and it never leaked! They are super easy to clean and easy to pour the milk into bottles. I would recommend these breastshells to any mother who is considering nursing. If anything have them on the shelf "just in case" you may need some relief like I did.

My son is now 28 months old and I'm expecting baby #2. I only used the breastshells the first few weeks with my son (until my body began to regulate milk production), but I'm glad I had them. I just fished them out of storage and plan to have the ready for the first few weeks with my daughter. The silicone hasn't deteriorated at all, so after washing, they seem brand new. I have since bought 2 sets for my friends who planned to breastfeed as a part of their baby shower gift, and I recommend them to any woman who is nursing a newborn. Good luck and I hope this helps!

When I started breastfeeding besides the pain it was the leaking which I couldn't control. I remember I would hold a bottle to collect the milk, till one day I dropped it all on the floor. So I stopped doing that. One day I went to Babies R Us and saw the Avent shells, I bought it no questions asked and I was so happy that I wished someone had told me about this great product. It's great while I'm nursing and pumping. This product saved me on disposable pads. I have been using it for 4 months and till this day I'm can't be without it. One suggestion make sure you tightly secure the shell and depending how much you leak check so shell won't get full.
