Benefits of breast shells Baby Shell

A natural nipple protector …
Breast shell, All its benefits!

Baby Shell breastfeeding shells are carefully selected, polished and calibrated by Babyshell to position themselves comfortably on the tips of your breasts. Besides making you feel like a pretty mermaid, the smoothness and coolness of the shell’s interior quickly soothe the burning sensation that baby can induce during feedings.

The natural properties of breastmilk have been known for centuries. It’s a shame to not use it to heal sore nipples instead of letting it stick to lingerie or go to waste in breastfeeding pads.

Baby Shell shells harness this healing power of breastmilk by allowing you to express several drops into each shell before placing them on your nipples, creating a sort of milk bandage. You can use your favorite cream or ointment with the shells as well.

Some other benefits of breastfeeding Baby Shell are the protection they offer against friction from lingerie, clothing, etc, on sore, sensitive nipples, protecting your clothes from small leaks between feedings and the fact that they are 100% reusable!
