Utilising the natural healing properties of silver to protect and heal breastfeeding nipples.
SILVERETTE® are worn over the nipples, helping to protect and heal sore, damaged nipples from breastfeeding. They take advantage of the natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of silver, providing a healing environment for breastfeeding nipples.
Made of 925 sterling silver, SILVERETTE® cup, 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 nursing sessions, until the pain/damage has resolved.
They should be the only nipple care product you will need, avoiding all creams, balms and ointments.
*Please note: While some irritation and discomfort from breastfeeding can be expected, especially as a first time mother, significant pain or 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.SILVERETTE® cups will help to heal any existing damage while the underlying cause is being determined.
"I got Silverette as a last resort. My boy is a premie and his never had a good latch. I can only feed him with shield. But as his latch is shallow and my nipples are quite flat. We've had some issues. Cracks, infections and pain. I was about to give up breastfeeding and my friend told me to try Silverettes..it sounds crazy but 3 hrs later the pain in my beast felt so much better! After 24hs I had no pain! And my nipples looked and felt great. I can not believe that they worked and worked so well.. I feel so much happier not been in pain. They are wonderful. So happy I tried them, now I can carry on breastfeeding"

"They were amazing! Got me through the first few weeks of him learning to latch and my nipples getting used to it, I find I don’t need them anymore. They were so essential in the beginning, even just protecting your nipple from your own clothes so important! Highly recommend these!"
