What should I do if the breast shells are causing pain?
The Mumasil Breast Milk Collection Shells should not cause any pain. If you experience any pain it is usually caused by your bra being too tight.
When you insert the shells we recommend loosening your bra right off so that you hardly feel the shells at all. They don't have to be tight at all to prevent leaking as the silicone moulds to your breast to catch the milk. You may sometimes need to further loosen your bra as your breast fills if you are wearing them for longer periods in between feeds.
Can I wear the Mumasil Breast Milk Collection Shells at night?
No. We recommend that you do not wear the Mumasil Breast Milk Collection Shells as there is a good chance they will leak.
