Avent Comfort Breast Shell Set
Philips AVENT comfort breast shells protect sore, cracked nipples and provide relief from engorgement during or between pumping and nursing. The ventilated inner shell, padded by a soft silicone cushion, gently presses on the areola, creating a slow trickle of milk. The outer shell prevents leaks, holding the milk until it can be collected or discarded. The silicone shells and pads can be sterilized in any Philips AVENT sterilizer or by boiling.
Shields Sore, Cracked Nipples
Philips AVENT comfort breast shells create a shield for nipples tender from breastfeeding. The soft silicone backing cushion fits snugly into your bra to protect you from chafing. The outer shell fits on top of the inner shell to hold released milk.
Collect Milk While Nursing or Pumping
While feeding or pumping, the closed breast shells can be placed against the non-nursing breast. Gentle pressure on the areola allows for a slow release of milk, easing engorgement and collecting the leaked milk for later feeding. A pouring spout aids in transferring milk to a sterilized bottle.
Release Between Feedings to Relieve Pressure
Comfort breast shells can also be worn between feedings to release a small amount of milk, relieving the discomfort and pressure of unexpressed milk. Only milk collected while pumping or feeding should be fed to your baby, as milk collected over a long period of time can become contaminated.
Easy to Sterilize
The shells and backing cushions can be sterilized with any Philips AVENT steam sterilizer or by boiling. Comfort breast shells should not be worn for more than 40 minutes at a time due to a risk of excess pressure on milk ducts.
