... do they work?
I've just started using it on one side as it's cracked, but they're wierd.
Are they just for using during feeding? or to wear inbetween?

Just during feeding! They really help though and you'll soon get used to the feeling.

I used them for 1 1/2 months whilst my nipples healed. They are fab. Do feel funny but as previous thread said, you do get used to it.

Different types though. My strong sucking DD2 couldn't take as much through the AVENT ones as they were quite thick. I ended using the BOOTS ones as they were much thinner silicone and felt closer to real skin.

Hope they work as they enabled me to keep BF for 6 months.

I couldn't get used to them at all. My nipples ended up as tough as old boots!
