October 30, 2009, Newsletter Issue #137: Breast Shells

Tip of the Week

Breast shells are used to help inverted nipples protrude for adequate breastfeeding. They are also helpful in easing soreness associated with breastfeeding.

Breast shells are constructed of plastic so they need to be cleaned in between feedings. They also press against the breast which may cause excess leakage or overproduction of milk.

These plastic breast shells can be purchased at most stores that carry breastfeeding supplies. If you can't find breast shells in your local store, contact the International Lactation Consultant Association at: info@ilca.org
