Breast-Warmers™ Silk & Wool - Safe & Gentle Warmth
Simply wash with cold water, by hand or on a gentle cycle at 30ºC (85ºF). Do not use fabric softener. It’s best to drip dry silk and wool material.
Place with the smooth silk layer (the lighter colour side) directly on the skin, with the soft wool layer to the outside.
Position any way you like, with the pointy end towards the armpit, or up or down.
Simply wear Breast-Warmers as needed; for a short time, 20-30 min before a feed, or even all day and night, simply slip inside the bra or crop-top as required.
This gentle warmth effectively relieves pain and discomfort and helps the milk to flow better, so simply wear as you find comfortable and helpful.
Studies have shown that warming the breasts 20 min before expressing increases the milk yield.
*Please be aware that if you get a high fever and don’t find any relief from mastitis by wearing Breast-Warmers within 12 hours, you must see a doctor or lactation consultant as you may need medication to ease the inflammation.
