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

I'm an LC and what I would recommend is using them ahead of time. The easier you make it for your lo to latch on the better. Shells can be used for two different things so when you purchase a set you will see two sets of backings. The larger opened backing is meant for sore nipples. The smaller opened backing is meant to pull the nipple out for someone in your case. I would recommend wearing them as often as possible during the day, checking on them whenever you go to the bathroom, and make sure they are placed properly as moving around can sometimes cause them to shift. Whatever you do don't wear them at night. HTH! GL!
