Breast milk has excellent hydrating, healing and anti-inflamatory properties that allow cracked nipples to heal quickly.

The Shells protect irritated nipples from rubbing on bras, easing any sensitivity or pain you may have.

They can be used to maintain the nipples permanently hydrated in order to prevent eventual cracks.

They can collect small amounts of leaked milk and avoid clothes getting wet. It is possible to use breast pads on top of the shells in case of abundant leakage.

The ergonomic shape of the shells fits the areola and does not press the mammary glands. They do not stimulate milk production outside the natural moments of milk flow. They do not provoke breast engorgement.

Women appreciate the softness and coolness of the shells.

Keep in mind that the position of the baby is very important to the success of breastfeeding.



Nipples are one of the most sensitive parts of your body and when they become sore, it can cause great discomfort.

Breastfeeding Shells maintains the areola and the nipples in contact with colostrum and breast milk.

According to the Moist Wound Healing Method nipple lesions and cracks can be healed easier thanks to the virtues of the breast milk itself (specially the milk from the end of a feed which is richer). It’s moisturizing properties soothe nipples, accelerate healing and avoid chapping and the formation of crusts.
