Diamonds may well be a girl’s best friend, but it appears silver may be the ultimate comrade for a breastfeeding mum. Unusual? Definitely – but these unique silver cups are famed for their healing qualities, and are now available locally.
Imported from Italy by For Mummy, Silverette healing mini cups are like a little secret weapon for breastfeeding mums.
They’re created by Italian silversmiths, and have been tried and tested for many years, proving beneficial in preventing bacteria growth and helping the healing time of sore nipples.
As a former breastfeeding mum I can attest to the excruciating nipple pain that can sometimes occur when first establishing breastfeeding, and beyond. The best advice I can give for mums yet to embark on their breastfeeding journey is to ensure they’re prepared. Unfortunately, it only takes a few feeds with bad attachment to do yourself some fairly painful damage, so many of us will experience sore nipples to some degree, at least initially. The Silverette healing mini cups are made of pure 925 silver, are free from nickel, and as a natural mineral, are harmless to the skin. But they can help to heal damaged nipples quickly.
Silverette healing mini cups are worn over the nipple, inside your bra, but can be worn with nursing pads as well. Because of their shape, they fit comfortably and you won’t even notice that you’re wearing them.
If you’re already struggling with sore, cracked or blistered nipples, the mini cups can help them heal within days. The cups are non-toxic, eco-friendly and hygienic, and there are no chemicals passed on to a nursing baby while breastfeeding. You can easily pop them on between feeds, so there’s no need to worry about applying any creams or lotions.
The other fantastic plus with the Silverette healing mini cups is they can be used over and over again with subsequent children, because silver doesn’t deteriorate over time. Once you’re done with the cups, you can have them melted down and made into a keepsake piece of jewellery. What’s more, if you’re looking for a special gift for a new mum, a set of Silverette healing mini cups is both practical and unique.
Having proven their worth in Europe and the USA for more than a decade, Silverette healing mini cups are now available in Australia for $70 a set.
