The Cups

Nipplease silver cups are handmade from 925 sterling silver (not silver plated) and are nickel free (as certified by The Assay Office).

They are worn directly on the nipple and are held in place by your nursing bra. One size fits all; they are comfortable to wear and should be worn at all times even when you sleep. They are great when used as a preventative measure to avoid cracks and soreness from the start of breastfeeding.

When nipples are cracked, sore and bleeding from breastfeeding or damaged using the breast pump, Nipplease cups provide the perfect antimicrobial, hygienic environment for your nipples to heal.

No creams are necessary when using the cups and therefore no chemicals will pass to the baby.

We would recommend that you seek advice to ensure your baby is latching on properly as this will help the healing process. If cracks and pain continues please see your health visitor or midwife. If there is any irritation please discontinue use immediately.

Use & Care

Easy to Use

  • Place cups directly on to your nipple. They will be held in place by your nursing bra
  • You may wish to wear breast pads over the cups for any leaks
  • Remove cups and rinse or wipe nipples before you breastfeed
  • No need for creams or lotions
  • Breast milk is also known to heal cracked nipples so you may wish to squeeze some breast milk into the cups before use, if you are able

Simple to Care

  • You will need bicarbonate of soda (found in all supermarkets)
  • Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda into each cup and add a couple of drops of water to make a paste
  • Rub thoroughly all around the cups to remove any residues, rinse and dry
  • There is no need to sterilise nipplease silver cups
  • We recommend cleaning a couple of times a day

Nipplease healing cups were a lifesaver, literally! After four weeks of extreme pain, and just as I was about to give up on breastfeeding a friend recommended these amazing silver cups. They soothed and healed my sore and blistered nipples within days and allowed me to continue breastfeeding.

 I thought the cups were fantastic. I use them every day and they really have saved me – they are the only reason I have been able to carry on breastfeeding. I was also impressed with how quick the delivery service was too.

After giving birth to my fourth child, I never thought breastfeeding was ever going to be a problem as I had success in the past. After my daughter was born I found myself in excruciating pain. I had cracked nipples and before she was even two weeks I had a case of full blown mastitis. I was in so much pain and a friend of mine recommended silver healing cups. I ordered a pair online and within 36 hours my nipples were completely healed and I haven’t looked back since. I researched the healing properties of silver and it all made sense. Without these silver healing cups, I wouldn’t have been able to continue breastfeeding. I recommend these to every breastfeeding mother I know!

My little one was a ravenous feeder from day 1 which didn’t give my nipples much time to get used to the constant sucking. I was adamant to avoid mastitis or cracked nipples and used nipplease to prevent this – and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them! No need for creams too which meant I could wear them between each feed and at night – no hassle – and in my experience it kept my nipples moist and ducts open. I highly recommend giving these a go – made breastfeeding so much more enjoyable for me.

Bestie #1 had her baby on 11/11 and she calls the Nipplease her little miracles. She LOVES them and has told everyone from friends, family, doctor, her doula, midwives and night nurse that they are the way to go. Needless to say, she has convinced my other friend I bought them for Rachel (due in a couple weeks) that she MUST put them in her hospital bag and use nothing else. Thank you.

One of my best friends sent me a package before my baby was born. Upon opening it, I came across a little bag with “nipplease” printed on it. I opened it up only to find what looked like to be a pair of silver nipples. I couldn’t even imagine what they were for. This was my first child and I really didn’t know much about breastfeeding. I began to read the literature inside and realized that I was to wear these “silver nips” to prevent pain. I chuckled at the thought of it. However, after hearing about another friend’s success with them, I packed them in my hospital bag and put them on immediately after I gave birth to my baby boy. I must say, these things are fabulous! My little boy is now 2 months old and I have not experienced the slightest bit of pain in my nipples. No soreness and no cracked or blistered nipples. I have not even had to use a drop of any type of ointment. I highly recommend these to anyone who is breastfeeding!

About me

With my first two children I found breastfeeding extremely painful. It just didnt seem to come naturally to me. I dont think I ever learnt how to get a proper latch and I suffered from cracks, splits and bleeding nipples. It was that toe curling pain. I tried every lotion and potion, type of cabbage leaf, alternative therapy and old wives tale going.

Whilst pregnant with my third child, an American friend of mine lent me some silver cups. I used these as soon as my daughter was born. They were comfortable to wear and stopped that painful feeling when your nipples stick to breast pads. My nipples felt protected and had time to heal and I managed to successfully breastfeed.

Knowing what a difference silver nipple cups have made to my breastfeeding experience, I became determined to spread the word. Seeing the positive results of my recommendation to friends and family has spurred me on. So now I have sourced these silver cups for you. I hope they bring you some relief and help you enjoy each day you breastfeed your baby.
