Silver Nipple Cups FAQs

We recommended that you should use Silver Nipple Cups during the lactation period for preventative measures. They are designed to be used in between nursing sessions, and are recommended to be worn continuously until breastfeeding is established without any pain or damage.

They can be used pre and postnatal as a preventative measure for sensitive nipples, as well as for nipples that have been damaged from expressing milk.

The cups are worn under your nursing bra or even if you plan on using absorbent breast pads, just place the breast pad over Silver Nipple Cups and your bra will hold everything in place.

  1. Express a couple of drops of milk in each cup and place the cup directly over the nipple, securing the cup with the nursing bra.
  2. Prior to breastfeeding, remove the cups and clean the nipples with warm water or a water wipe. Once feeding is completed, rinse the cups with warm water, pat dry and repeat step 1 of the process in-between feeds.

Silver is a natural antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial metal that also contains anti-inflammatory agents. As a result, a quick rinse with warm water between feeds is sufficient to clean the cups.

The cups can tarnish over time due to the natural oxidisation process that occurs in silver, however it is still safe and effective to use.  To remove the tarnish, make a paste using a mix of bicarbonate of soda (one teaspoon) with a few drops of water.  Rub the paste over the cups, rinse and pat dry. 

Although not required, the cups can be cleaned using mild base soap (recommended handwash soap).

Do not use any harsh detergents, bleach-based agents, sterilising tablets or hard scourers to clean the cups. 

Natural oxidisation may occur over time. This is when the silver develops a brass yellow colour. Rest assured this is normal and it is important for you to know the cups are still effective and most importantly safe to use for mum and baby.
