How to use
To prevent or ease sore nursing nipples, leave a couple of drops of breast milk in each cup at the end or your breastfeeding session and place the cups directly over the nipple like a cupping glass. Keep Silverette® on as much as possible between breastfeeding sessions. Remove cups before breastfeeding.
Do not use any other nipple treatments in conjunction with Silverette®. Doing so may compromise or reduce the efficacy of the product. If you plan on using absorbent breast pads, place the breast pads over cups. Your nursing bra will hold the cups in place.
Simply wash in between use with warm water to remove any residue. To keep them shiny, you can create a simple paste using bicarbonate of soda and a little bit of water, and rub the mixture on the cups. Rinse thoroughly then dry. The nursing cups are dishwasher safe, however if you need them regularly, a quick wash is better than waiting for the dishwasher cycle.
No disinfectant is required to clean them as it could potentially damage the silver. It is well documented that silver is a natural antimicrobial and has been shown to kill bacteria, fungi and certain viruses. That is why this product is highly effective when it is in contact with the skin to protect and heal the nipples during breastfeeding phases.
