Re: Can anyone tell me about breast shells to correct flat nipples?

I am not a LC, but I completed a lactation educator training and was told that breast shells were a good tool to use during pregnancy to begin to draw out the nipple.

As you probably know, breast shells are different from nipple shields, which are not recommended unless truly necessary because they can cause their own set of problems.

Most times, babies should be able to latch on fine, even for a mom with flat nipples.

Good luck!
