TheraShell backings are made of soft, flexible silicone backs and include both backings for sore and inverted nipples. The domes are made of polypropylene.
How To Use
1. Assemble the dome and back with large hole (ring) together to form a shell.
2. Place the shell inside your bra with the ring centered over the nipple. If leakage occurs, a bra pad can be placed directly in your bra at the lower edge of Therashell dome. The vents in the dome allow free circulation of air around the nipple. The shell also keeps clothing and wet bra pads off the nipple to help prevent further irritation.
3. Wear the shells during waking hours to help treat the soreness.
Assemble the dome and back with small hole (cone) together to form a shell.
Place the shell inside your bra with the cone centered over the nipple. If leakage occurs, a bra pad can be placed directly in your bra at the lower edge of Therashell dome. The vents in the dome allow free circulation of air around the nipple. The shell also keeps clothing and wet bra pads off the nipple.
Wear the shells for half an hour before breastfeeding to help draw the nipple out, making it easier for baby to latch on. If discomfort occurs, discontinue use.
Before first use, disassemble all parts and sanitize by boiling for 10 minutes. After each use, disassemble and wash all parts with mild soap and warm water, rinse thoroughly and dry completely. Plastic shell parts are safe to autoclave, boil, dishwash and clean with Medela Quick CleanTM Micro-SteamTM bags.
IMPORTANT: When boiling or autoclaving, clean all six pieces at the same time. Disassemble prior to boiling or autoclaving.
