Silverette Nursing Cups

$94.90

SILVERETTE® are mini nursing cups that are worn over the nipples, helping to prevent, protect and alleviate painful, damaged nipples from breastfeeding.

Worn in between feeds, Silverette nursing cups utilise the natural healing properties of silver to prevent and soothe nipple pain, cracks, cuts and inflammation.

 No creams necessary, completely natural, safe for mum and baby, easy to use and best of all, our Silverette nursing cups can be used indefinitely!

 Sold as a pair (2 pieces).

PLEASE NOTE: Silverette Nursing cups can not be RETURNED, EXCHANGED & are FINAL SALE. 

How to use:

Simply place the nursing cups over your nipples, using your bra and/or nursing pads to hold them into place. Wear them night and day, in between nursing sessions, until the pain/damage has resolved. If you are using them as a preventative measure, wear the cups consistently for the first 2 - 3 weeks, then as needed thereafter.

We recommend taking a break from wearing Silverette breastfeeding cups each day (or as needed) and letting your nipples air dry (in the sun is great!), especially if you leak a lot, to prevent excessive moisture exposure. A moist environment is conducive to healing and helps prevents cracks/tears/cuts, however, excess moisture exposure can irritate the nipples and surrounding skin, potentially causing thrush or dermatitis (uncommon but it can happen). 

Sizing:

Silverette breastfeeding cups are available in two sizes - ORIGINAL and EXTRA LARGE.

Please note, the sizing only affects the comfort factor for some, NOT the effectiveness. 

How to determine your size:

ORIGINAL: Suitable for those with a bra size of a C cup or less and an areola size LESS THAN 4.5 cm.

XL: Suitable for those with a bra size of a C cup or more and an areola size EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN 4.5 cm.

If your measurements do not fit into the above two categories then order EXTRA LARGE, as this will ensure maximum comfort. For example, if your bra size is smaller than a C cup but your areolas are 4.5 cm or greater, order XL. If your bra size is larger than a C cup but your areolas are smaller than 4.5 cm, order XL. 

Please also consider that pregnancy and milk production will change the size of your breasts and areolas. If your measurements are on the cusp during pregnancy it would be best to size up, as more than likely your breasts and therefore areolas will enlarge when your milk comes in. If in doubt, size up. It is better to have the Silverette Nursing Cups slightly bigger than slightly smaller. 

If you are ordering them as a gift and are not sure what size to order, go for the XL. XL is the best option as it is a one-size-fits-most.

If your areola measurements indicate that you require the XL size but you have purchased the original, this does not mean that the original size is no longer suitable, so do not worry. Regardless of the size, they will work as intended. If you are using the original size and they are working for you, you do not need to change to the XL ones.

Composition:

Made of 925 sterling silver, SILVERETTE® nursing cups take advantage of the natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of silver, providing a healing environment for breastfeeding nipples. They are non-toxic, eco-friendly and so easy to use!

 Handcrafted in Italy by licensed silversmiths for many years, they have a patented anatomical shape that has been tested to fit any size nipple without compressing it. The rounded shape of Silverette nursing cups allows air to circulate, while the edges have been folded by hand to avoid any discomfort.

Other Information:

Silverette Breastfeeding Cups are endorsed by midwives, lactation consultants and obstetricians around the world. And, just as importantly, have been tried, tested and loved by breastfeeding mothers all over the world.
 
Best of all, with a little care, Silverette cups will last forever! Whether you breastfeed one child or 10, these breastfeeding cups will see you through your entire breastfeeding journey. They should be the only nipple care product you will need, saving you money on Doctors visits, prescriptions and creams/balms.


*IMPORTANT: While some irritation and discomfort from breastfeeding can be expected, especially as a first time mother, significant nipple damage should be investigated further. We recommend seeking the professional help of a Lactation Consultant to ensure the latch and positioning are correct and to ensure that there is no undiagnosed lip and/or tongue tie. If you seek professional advice, Silverette nursing cups will help to heal any existing damage while the underlying cause is being determined.

*NB: Silverette nursing cups are registered as a medical device under the WAND (Web Assisted Notification of Devices) database here in New Zealand. For medical devices to be legally supplied in New Zealand they must be notified to the WAND database.
