Breastfeeding Baby shell
Well, if you haven’t yet…you can! Maternity and the choice to breastfeed doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself of beauty and elegance.
We can help you achieve that magical feeling and reduce the unpleasant effects of latching-on with our pretty shells carefully harvested from the depths of the clearest blue oceans and lovingly polished by Mother Nature.
The first days and weeks of breastfeeding can be a rude awakening for new moms, especially if your little one is a voracious eater! Originally a technique used in Nordic countries, our shells provide a 100% natural solution to protect and prevent painful cracked nipples so you can focus on the pleasures of breastfeeding.
Baby Shell breastfeeding shells are carefully selected, polished and calibrated by Babyshell to position themselves comfortably on the tips of your breasts. Besides making you feel like a pretty mermaid, the smoothness and coolness of the shell’s interior quickly soothe the burning sensation that baby can induce during feedings.
The natural antiseptic and healing properties of breastmilk have been known for centuries. It’s a shame to not use those very properties to heal sore nipples instead of letting it stick to lingerie or go to waste in breastfeeding pads.
Baby Shell shells harness this healing power of breastmilk by allowing you to express several drops into each shell before placing them on your nipples, creating a sort of milk bandage.
Some other benefits of breastfeeding Baby Shell are the protection they offer against friction from lingerie, clothing, etc, on sore, sensitive nipples, protecting your clothes from small leaks between feedings and the fact that they are 100% reusable!
