Description

The Medela Breast Shell is made from soft, flexible, BPA-free silicone membranes, which feels comfortable on the skin and adapt to the shape of your breasts.They help prevent friction from clothing, reduce discomfort and enables air circulation.

The Medela Breast Shells' discreet shape and the flexible silicone membrane makes it pleasant and invisible to wear, while being gentle on the skin. The ventilation holes in the top of the shells allow air to circulate, which prevents moisture from accumulating while and promoting healing of dry and cracked nipples. The Breast Shells protects sore nipples from further chafing (incorrect positioning of the baby’s mouth around the breast could be a reason for the soreness). Any milk leakage is collected at the same time. The shells can be worn continuously between breastfeeding sessions. If soreness becomes severe or persists, consult a physician or lactation consultant. Avoid wearing at night to prevent tender spots.

Cleaning Instructions
Before first use and subsequently once daily.
Place the separated parts in a small pan filled with cold water. Distilled water is recommended – if tap water is used, a teaspoon of citric acid may be added to the water to avoid a build-up of limescale. Bring the water to boil and allow it to continue boiling for approximately 5 minutes. Drain off the water and place the parts on a clean cloth to dry.

After each use
Separate the parts. Shells and membranes should be washed with a mild cleaning solution, rinsed thoroughly in cold water and dried on a clean cloth.

Additional Information
Directions Put the silicone membrane on the shell. Be sure it snaps on all the way around. Place the assembled Breast Shells inside your bra with the opening in the silicone membrane centered over your nipple. The ventilation holes in the shell must point upwards. We recommend wearing a nursing bra when using a shell; nursing bras are roomier and the shell will fit more comfortably.
Caution Do not feed the breast milk collected in the shell to the baby. Discard this milk.
