SILVERETTE® are mini cups that are worn over the nipples, helping to protect and heal sore, damaged nipples.
Made of 925 sterling silver, SILVERETTE® 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!
Simply place the cups over your nipples, using your bra and/or nursing pads to hold them into place. Wear them night and day, in between feeding baby, until the pain/damage has resolved.
Handcrafted in Italy by licensed silversmiths, they have a patented anatomical shape that has been tested to fit any size nipple without compressing it. The rounded shape allows air to circulate, while the edges have been folded by hand to avoid any discomfort.
They are the original nursing cups designed and made in Italy, since 2002, and 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 cups will see you through your entire breastfeeding journey.
Please note: While some irritation and discomfort from breastfeeding can be expected, especially for first time mothers, significant nipple damage / pain 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 un-diagnosed lip and/or tongue tie.
If you decide to seek professional advice, SILVERETTE® cups will help to heal any existing damage while the underlying cause is being determined.
