Customer Reviews:

  • They're okay...
    They actually work better than I thought, but don't plan on going anywhere with them (because they make you look absolutely huge), and sleeping with them doesn't really work either. They have to be emptied often or else the milk gets all over the place....more info
  • Itchy Shells
    They kind of worked but the soft backings made me itch and the little stoppers on the shells looked funny under shirts.... Later I tried Ameda's Breast Shells, they are A LOT better!! Check those out before you purchase Avent's Breastshells!!!!...more info
  • Way too big!
    I purchased these in an attempt to find some relief for my sore nipples during the first few weeks of breastfeeding, however, I never used them because they were too big to fit in my bra and they made me look like I had huge tumors on the end of my breasts so there is no way I would wear them in public. Also, the instructions say that you can only wear them for 40 minutes at a time because they can reduce your milk supply--not something you want to be doing during the first weeks when you're trying to get your milk supply up....more info
  • collects a lot of milk
    It has 2 main uses:
    1) great for sore nipples. You can use it for a couple of hours to improve healing
    2) When i breastfeed my baby i use it in the breast that is not in "use". By the time my son finish with the other breast it has collected a lot of milk!!...more info
  • Great Product
    These breastshells are wonderful. They helped me continue to breastfeed as they eased sore and cracked nipples. And I love being able to save the breastmilk that leaks out for use later. Great job, Avent!...more info
  • I love this item
    First, I have to give anyone who breatfeed a good for you, it's the best thing for baby. Second, I love this item, I don't feel bad that my malk is going to waste. I pump extra so my husband can feed the baby bottle when he get's home from work and to make extra malk. Not only do I love this item but all the Avent items are great....more info
  • Great work "Avent"
    When I started breastfeeding besides the pain it was the leaking which I couldn't control. I remember I would hold a bottle to collect the milk, till one day I dropped it all on the floor. So I stopped doing that. One day I went to Babies R Us and saw the Avent shells, I bought it no questions asked and I was so happy that I wished someone had told me about this great product. It's great while nursing and pumping. This product saved me on disposable pads. I have been using it for 4 months and till this day I'm can't be without it. One suggestion make sure you tightly secure the shell and check to make sure you don't fill the shell....more info
  • A little overpriced
    These were good for sore nipples, although the instructions say not to use them for more than 40 minutes at a time to prevent excessive pressure on your milk ducts. The first 2 - 3 weeks you are sore almost 24 hours a day. I did not have any success on using them to catch leaking milk, as they are not shaped right for all nipple types and the milk leaked out under them into my bra. As for saving the leaked milk, the instructions say that you are only supposed to save the milk you collect during breastfeeding; you are supposed to throw any other milk away, as it could have become contaminated. When my son was about 3 months old I quit leaking altogether, even when he was nursing on the other side, so I never use them anymore. Not the best purchase, but great for the first two weeks or so....more info
  • Best In The Breast
    They worked great in getting me ready for my little one and since this was my first baby I can say it was worth giving them a shot and I'm grateful I did!...more info
  • ok - nothing great
    this has helped, but I am not thrilled. I cant wear it for too long - the pressure it puts hurts if I wear it for more than 30-40 minutes or so. I'd prefer something I can wear atleast for a few hours - maybe a whole day and give my sore nipples a break - but thats not possible with this one. ...more info
  • A Lifesaver!!!
    Initially, I purchased the Avent breast pads, thinking they would suffice. However, I found them to be itchy against my already irritated breasts. These breastshells were the answer!!! Not only do they catch all that embarassing leaking milk, but they soothe away irritation!...more info
  • Saves leaked breastmilk, protects cracked nipples
    Summary: Works great for collecting leaked breastmilk and thereby minimizing waste; ventilated shells are great relief for injured nipples; appearance drastically improves if worn with a lightly padded bra

    Product comes with two soft bases (rings fitting around nipple), and two sets of covers: one ventilated (with holes), and one without holes.

    Pros:
    - ventilated shells protect irritated or damaged nipples from contact with clothing, reducing irritation and allowing healing without blocking air from the skin
    - ventilated shells can collect a couple ounces of milk (if you're mindful of the holes at the top)
    - solid (no hole) shells can collect 2-3 ounces of milk and have convenient pouring spouts
    - base is shaped pointing out which is desirable for flat nipples

    Cons:
    - soft base (ring with hole for the nipple to fit through) can cause skin irritation if left on too long due to moisture accumulation
    - outward appearance through clothing varies greatly depending on breast size and type of bra used; seems to be designed to contour with size C at most

  • disappointed
    For the most part I am extremely pleased with avent products, which is probably why I was so disappointed in these breast shields. My mother gave me a pair of breast shields she used while nursing my sister 15 years ago and the avent breast shields did not even compare. They are only good for wearing while you are nursing and the rubber ring does not make the best seal to the plastic shield. You cannot move around very much while wearing the plastic shields that have holes for ventilation, which is a hinderance while taking care of baby. Since I leak throughout the day, these do not work too well for me....more info
  • A Blessing!
    I purchased these breast shields not knowing when or if I would use them. I am so glad that I did. My nipples got so sore during the 1st few months of breastfeeding and the shells saved me. They brought instant relief by keeping them protected from anything that touched them (it creates a barrier around them so clothes don't rub), plus they catch any leaking milk. They helped me not to give up breastfeeding....more info
  • Great for mothers who pump
    With three and five year old children at home, I found it difficult to let my breasts air out for any period of time. Worn inside my bra, the ventilated breast shells allowed me to keep my nipples dry and expedited the healing process. Now that I am back to work full time and breastfeeding exclusively, the milk savers have been a tremendous help. I place one on the opposite breast that I am pumping and it collects the milk that leaks out - usually about an ounce or two. The milk that is collected allows me to cut dowm on my pumping time - and prevents any leakage through the breast pad. I highly recommend this product along with the entite Avent line to all mothers....more info
  • couldn't live without!
    I was wasting so so many breastpads and milk that I could have been collecting for months! I couldn't live without these and will tell every nursing mother I know about them!...more info

  • How do you spell relief?.....Breastshells!
    I put this item on my registry based on reviews from other nursing moms. I didn't know if I would need them as this is my first time being a mom and of course, new to nursing, so I registered for them "just in case". Thankfully my friend bought them for me and at the beginning of the first week my nipples were extremely sore and developing scabs. A lactation consultant recommended exposing my nipples to air as one way to heal them, so I opened the package and my nipples were aired and protected from my bra and clothes rubbing against them.

    I wore these literally all day and began pumping. In about a week I was healed! I also noticed that as I wore them it collected milk as I fed my baby or during my sleep, and it never leaked! They are super easy to clean and easy to pour the milk into bottles. I would recommend these breastshells to any mother who is considering nursing. If anything have them on the shelf "just in case" you may need some relief like I did.

    My son is now 28 months old and I'm expecting baby #2. I only used the breastshells the first few weeks with my son (until my body began to regulate milk production), but I'm glad I had them. I just fished them out of storage and plan to have the ready for the first few weeks with my daughter. The silicone hasn't deteriorated at all, so after washing, they seem brand new. I have since bought 2 sets for my friends who planned to breastfeed as a part of their baby shower gift, and I recommend them to any woman who is nursing a newborn. Good luck and I hope this helps!...more info
  • Best solution
    I have a new baby brother, Danny. He was born about three months ago. My mom wanted to breats-feed him because breast-feeding is healthier and is gaining in popularity. However,each time she gave my brother a feeding, I was very happy to help her, but some formula was dribbly and it had leaked on the carpet many times. Later, a friend of ours sent us a present. It was these Avent breastshells because our friend knew that we have a new baby and my mom was breast-feeding and that feedings had caused leaks. Mom tried it and no milk has dropped in weeks. I am so happy to help with my baby brother....more info
  • GREAT except for one thing
    I love these breast shells! I use them whenever I breast feed my daughter or on the opposite breast while I pump. It catches all of the leaking milk, sometimes. Once in a while, I don't know if it's the shape of my breast or if the shell is too full, but I've had some milk leak and soak the bottom of my breast pads. Other than that, this is a great product!...more info
  • Save up extra milk with no effort!!
    Ever since I started using the Medela double pump, I've had a significant amount of leakage from one breast when I'm nursing the baby on the other one. I bought these to solve the problem, which they DID, but there's an even better benefit...I'm storing up extra milk with absolutely no effort!!

    Each feeding I collect between 1/3 and 1/2 an ounce of milk (I have a newborn that still eats small frequent amts). Keep pouring them together in the fridge, and by the end of the day you have an extra bottle of milk to store--no extra pumping required!

    This has been a lifesaver for me as a SAHM to three little ones, as I really don't have TIME to pump, but need the occasional stored bottle for when I leave baby with Daddy for a few hours....more info
  • Great for overactive letdown
    If you're like me and have large breasts and overactive letdown, the shells can be used to collect breastmilk prior to feeding your child. Then your breasts aren't as "full" (helps relieve pressure) so your baby doesn't gag and choke and get sprayed from all the pressure when your breasts are overfilled. Also, while you're feeding on one breast, wear the shield on the other. This lets you collect milk for future use and doesn't waste it....more info
  • They get the job done
    I use these in the morning with the first feeding because I leak on whatever side my daughter is not nursing from. I use them more so the milk doesn't go to waste than to protect my clothing. If I used them for protection of clothing or for sore nipples I would not have rated them as high as I did. First, they are not made for really large breasts. They set nicely over the nipple, but certainly do not cover much more than the areola area. If I were to wear these out, my breasts would look like large mushrooms. They are nice in the privacy of my own home, though. The shell that fits on the breast is comfortable. It is easy to clean and soft. I would recommend these for the use of collecting leaking milk while pumping and feeding only. I would not recommend these to wear out when you are going to miss a feeding and know you will leak. Wear disposable pads. Also, I wouldn't recommend them for the sore nipple problem either if you are large breasted....more info
