    Sore nipples are very common during breastfeeding and can often be a result of an uncomfortable position of the baby at the breast. As mothers address the cause of the issue through professional support, wearing Silverette Nursing Cups between feeds may provide relief, and repair the nipple through contact with the natural silver.

    This is because silver is known to have antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits and Silverette Nursing Cups have been designed to harness the precious metal’s benefits. Silverette is made from 925 silver, the purest solid silver that can be moulded into a shape, and is 100% nickel free.

    Silverette is safe for mothers and babies, and are the only silver nursing cups that can be reused indefinitely, so can continue to be used if you decide to grow your family.

    Silverette Nursing Cup reviews

    Absolute must for breastfeeding

    “Wow! These cups are amazing and definitely a must if breastfeeding. I put these on every time in between feeds and they just help with the healing process. I was about to give up on breastfeeding due to very sore, red nipples but as soon as I put these I could feel the relief and could continue breastfeeding. Love how they’re reusable! Definitely worth the investment.” – Andrea

    Healed my sore nipples when nothing else did

    “Had some nipple trauma from breastfeeding and I was so sore that I was stinging when fabric brushed against it. I bought this out of desperation but I’m so glad it helped me recover. It acted as a protective barrier but also helped to heal my cracks. It’s quite easy to clean as well. I wish others knew about this too — I even recommended it to my maternal health nurse! It is a bit pricey, but when you’re breastfeeding often with pain, it’s worth the dollars.”

    It is recommended to start wearing Silverette nursing cups during the lactation period, between feeds, as a preventative measure. For some this could be before baby is born, but starting anytime will provide relief.
