Chicco Breast Shells 2pk

If you have sore or cracked nipples, Chicco’s breast shells protect them and allow skin to recover and heal naturally by allowing airflow around the nipple and preventing your clothes from rubbing on them.

How can breast shells help cracked or sore nipples? Breastfeeding is a special time, but it isn’t always straightforward.

You may find you have sore or even cracked nipples, especially during the early days, when you and your baby are both learning. After all, your sensitive nipples simply aren’t used to the pressure and suction of your baby feeding regularly. Any discomfort should gradually ease – if it doesn’t, seek advice from a lactation consultant or breastfeeding specialist. In the meantime, wearing breast shells between feeds can help prevent your clothing rubbing against tender nipples while helping to promote natural healing. Tackling different types of nipple issues

While sensitive or sore nipples are common in new mums, sometimes discomfort can occur because of the position you’re breastfeeding in, or because your baby has a poor breastfeeding latch, so again it’s a good idea to get assessed by a lactation expert or breastfeeding specialist in these circumstances. If you experience bleeding nipples, severe breastfeeding pain, or have symptoms of a breast infection, such as mastitis, it’s important to see your healthcare professional.

How do breast shells work? Breast shells fit inside your bra to prevent fabric rubbing against sensitive or sore nipples, allowing your skin to recover and promoting natural healing. It’s a good idea to wear a nursing bra when using breast shells, as these tend to be a bit roomier than a typical bra, so it’s easier to fit them inside. However, you don’t need to worry about Chicco breast shells showing through your clothes, as their low-profile shape ensures a natural look. You can wear breast shells continuously between breastfeeding sessions, but avoid using them in bed at night, as this can aggravate sore nipples.

How to use Chicco breast shells Chicco breast shells have two parts: a soft, flexible silicone membrane that feels comfortable on sensitive skin, and an outer shell with ventilation holes to allow your skin to breathe. They fit together easily:

1. Place the membrane on to the outer shell, ensuring it snaps on all the way around.

2. Put the assembled breast shell inside your bra, with the opening in the membrane centred over your nipple. The holes should point upwards. Some of you breast milk may collect the nipple shells as you wear them. You should not feed this to your baby – pour it away when you clean the shells.
