It is true that all you need to breastfeed is you and your baby. This is undoubtedly one of its benefits, you don’t need anything else and this makes it all the more convenient! However, some mums do find that along the way, having a few helpful products and breast care accessories to hand can support and in some cases prolong their feeding journey.
Today we are not talking about breast pumps, but the items that may help with essential breast care and getting the most out of your feeding sessions. Have a look below to find out more about our range of breast care accessories…
PureLan Nipple Cream
A common problem suffered by many mums whilst breastfeeding is experiencing tenderness, pain or discomfort due to dry or sore nipples. Our moisturising PureLan cream has been designed to gently soothe and rehydrate the skin, ensuring mums can continue to breastfeed comfortably. Made from 100% pure lanolin, otherwise known as wool wax, PureLan contains no artificial additives or preservatives so is completely safe for little ones and can conveniently be left on while feeding.
Contact Nipple Shields
Our nipple shields are designed to make breastfeeding easier for breastfed babies with latch-on difficulties by providing a larger, firmer target for latching. They can also be used to help mums with flat inverted or sore nipples or an overactive let-down to breastfeed.
Hydrogel Soothing Breastpads
Our Hydrogel Breastpads provide instant relief from sore nipples by attaching to the skin as a protective, cooling cushion. They support the healing process by providing moisture and keeping the skin smooth. Reusable for 24 hours, they can provide support all day.
Milk Collection Shells
Our Milk Collection Shells are designed to ensure no precious breast milk is lost! Featuring a built-in spout, you can easily empty the breast milk collected in them. Secure, comfortable and discrete they can be worn for long periods of time.
