How Do Silverette® Nursing Cups Work?
The cups are designed to sit comfortably on the breasts and prevent your nipples from sticking to the fabric inside your bra. Worn in between feeds, the cups will naturally prevent, protect and alleviate soreness, blisters and irritation from the result of breastfeeding or pumping. The shape of the cup allows moist healing of cracks and blisters by holding a small amount of breastmilk. They also allow air circulation to aid healing.
Made from 925 silver proven to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial benefits to prevent and repair the nipple skin at all stages of the breastfeeding or pumping journey. Use daily for best results.
Use them for years or pass them on to a friend.
How to use Silverette® Nursing Cups
To prevent or ease sore nursing nipples, leave a couple of drops of breast milk in each cup at the end or your breastfeeding session and place the cups directly over the nipple like a cupping glass. Keep Silverette® on as much as possible between breastfeeding sessions. Remove cups before breastfeeding.
Do not use any other nipple treatments in conjunction with Silverette®. Doing so may compromise or reduce the efficacy of the product. If you plan on using absorbent breast pads, place the breast pads over cups. Your nursing bra will hold the cups in place.
Simply wash in between use with warm water to remove any residue. To keep them shiny, you can create a simple paste using bicarbonate of soda and a little bit of water, and rub the mixture on the cups. Rinse thoroughly then dry. The nursing cups are dishwasher safe, however if you need them regularly, a quick wash is better than waiting for the dishwasher cycle.
No disinfectant is required to clean them as it could potentially damage the silver. It is well documented that silver is a natural antimicrobial and has been shown to kill bacteria, fungi and certain viruses. That is why this product is highly effective when it is in contact with the skin to protect and heal the nipples during breastfeeding phases.
Silverette® Nursing Cups available in two sizes. Regular & XL
NB: There is nothing that replaces information and support to breastfeed. If you are experiencing pain when breastfeeding please consider seeking some support. Pain while feeding can be an indicator of other issues but are often helped with some practical support from a lactation consultant.
