It's so easy!

Simply place Silverette® over your nipples, using your bra or nursing singlet to hold them in place. If you are a heavy leaker, we recommend wearing nursing pads over the top to prevent any leakage. Wear them day and night, in between feeding or pumping sessions.

If you are using them to soothe existing pain/damage, wear them until your nipples have recovered. Yes, you can sleep in them!

If you are using them as a preventative measure, wear them for the first 3 - 4 weeks or as long as needed.

To clean, rinse them under water daily or as needed to remove any milk residues. To bring back the shine, sprinkle a little baking soda onto each cup, add a drop or two of water, scrub and rinse. Pat dry.

*IMPORTANT: While some irritation and discomfort from breastfeeding can be expected in the first week or two, ongoing or severe pain and/or nipple damage should be investigated further. We recommend seeing your midwife or a Lactation Consultant to ensure the latch and positioning are correct and to check for lip and/or tongue ties. Silverette® will help soothe and protect your nipples while the underlying cause is being determined.

We recommend taking a break from wearing Silverette® for a few hours each day (or as needed) - particularly if you leak a lot. Let your nipples air dry, in the sun is great! While a moist environment is conducive to healing and helps prevents cracks and cuts, excess moisture can irritate the nipples and surrounding skin and potentially delay nipple healing.
