Rated 5 out of 5 by Gurdeep Godsend
I used these for the first time today and they are a GODSEND. I have a huge problem with leaking and this is my greatest anxiety if i'm going out. My clothes would literally be drenched. I was not interested in 'saving' the leaked milk (although this is an advantage) but just wanted a solution to the leaking. These literally saved not only my clothes but also my self confidence. Every so often I'd pop to the loo to empty and wash them out. Yes the do have an odd shape but I just wore a scarf to cover my chest so noone could see anyway. So so so so happy with this product.

my mum was using these 30 years ago and recommend these to me when I got pregnant, so looked in shops and talked to people about them but no-one had never heard of them, so ordered online and iv been using them constantly now for 6 weeks. How do people not know about this, people soon said 'wish I had known about them' it's a great product I don't know what I would of done without them. Only thing is they can tend to leak sometimes.

They collect the milk. Doesn't hold alot of milk the structure of it is poor because of how they attach the milk leaks through the seems and the nipple whole is a bit big. I suggest Phillips improve this product . As a mom I don't like to see my milk leaking through my shirt these are suppose to be milk savers not milk leakers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Highamreb In theory- great
I used these ten years ago with my last child, and they were great. Now however they leak every time I use them, I have a lot of milk and these should be a godsend as they were last time but I am disappointed that no matter how much I try to solve it, they leak and I end up getting completely redressed every time I use them

Like the other review below, I thought these would be useless as you can only wear them for 40 minutes... however I pop one on my other breast whilst feeding and they collect a lot of milk which A - means I am not soaking and B - means I collect a lot of milk and pop it in the fridge for my boyfriend to supply a bottle feed another time. I wish someone had told me about these from the start!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MommyO Great for those that overproduce!
I was so happy to find these. My mother used something similar and raved about how she never pumped. She produced so much that she would just use "these cups" to collect. The hospital gave me a competitors brand but they had many holes. I would bend over and leak milk everywhere. I was so fed up with constantly being drenched. When I found these at a local retailer I was thrilled, I was almost ready to give up BFing.
I wear these all day and collect the many ounces I leak. I just collect, wash out as they fill, and continue using. I have a large supply of milk frozen and have no need to pump!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mindy Good product for new mom
The shells worked very well during that first 4 weeks while establishing my milk flow for our new baby.

I bought these shells in the hope of being able to wear them for a prolonged period of time whilst my nipples healed. However, on reading the instructions it is recommended not to wear them for more than 40 minutes at a time because they may cause pressure on the milk ducts. Pretty useless product for day to day nipple protection if you can only wear them for 40 minutes. Indeed, after ignoring the instructions and wearing them for around 4 hours at night, my breasts did feel softer than usual - perhaps because the pressure had imitated an engorged breast? Only worn them the one night, not used since.
