What are breast shells?

Breast shells are specialized breastfeeding accessories designed to address various nursing challenges and promote overall lactation comfort for breastfeeding mothers. They are typically worn inside the bra and serve multiple purposes, including protecting sore or sensitive nipples from friction and allowing proper aeration to aid in the healing process. They can also be used to collect breast milk leaks, preventing wastage and enabling mothers to build a milk supply for future use. Some variants come with adjustable features to ensure a comfortable fit and accommodate different breast shapes and sizes. They assist in the correction of inverted or flat nipples by gently applying pressure gradually encouraging the nipples to protrude. They also provide a protective and supportive environment for breastfeeding and contribute to a more positive and comfortable nursing experience for mothers. In recent years, breast shells have gained immense traction as they aid in enhancing breastfeeding comfort and addressing common nursing difficulties, thus supporting maternal well-being across the globe.
