What do Koala mums and dads think about it?
Die Silberhüttchen sind eine sinnvolle Anschaffung und haben auch mir in meinest Stillzeit geholfen wenn ich merkte das die Brustwarzen zu schmerzen beginnen, aus welchen Gründen auch immer. Leichte Risse oder einfach nur Überreizung, vor allem am Anfang der Stillzeit haben sie gut unterstützt.
als Hebamme habe ich die Silberhütchen in der Wochenbettpflege testen dürfen. Direkt nach der Geburt, kontinuierlich angewendet, bewirken sie einen schmerzfreien Start in die Stillzeit. Auch bei akuten Beschwerden haben sie sehr geholfen. Großes Lob!
Habe es bereits am Tag der Geburt an die Brust gelegt und ohne Ausnahme jeden Moment auf der Brust gelassen in den ersten Wochen, hatte keine Schmerzen und keine Wunden! Nach 16 Monaten kam die erste Wunde und der Schmerz, habe es sofort kalt gewaschen auf die Brust gelegt und am nächsten Tag war alles schon verheilt! Wundermittel und ein Muss für jede Mama!! Wir lieben es und freuen uns es auch bei unserem zweiten Wunder anzuwenden ❤️
Breastfeeding has been quite difficult for me, just because my nipples have been so sensitive and sore. I had heard great things about these silver protectors, but was hesitant because everything else I had tried didn’t seem to help much. I am so glad I went forward and got these. They have made a huge difference even in the few days that i’ve been using them. I recommend these for any breastfeeding mom!
After the birth of my first baby, I was in extreme pain and discomfort. I had sore, red, cracked nipples and wearing clothes was unbearable because of the friction. When I became pregnant again, I wanted to avoid having such a painful experience again. This silver nursing cups are a must have. I tried lanolin and balms and sticky pads but they barely reduced my discomfort plus I was worried if they were safe for baby. These cups leave no residue so they are safe for baby. Plus they work! No more pain and unbearable friction or chafing issues. Buy these for every nursing mom you know. These are absolutely a must have! They are hygienic and reusable. They are so comforting. For those concerned about quality, these are made in Italy of 100% silver and they are durable and comfortable.
