Breastmates Heat Pack - Tube
Breastfeeding often doesn't come as a natural instinct to many mothers, and it can be a very trying time. Using a heat pack can help you to survive the first few weeks.
Heat packs deliver warm, moist heat to tender breasts which encourages milk flow, promotes let-down, relieves engorgement, maintains open milk ducts, and provides comfort for infection or mastitis.
Just warm it in the microwave and place over your breasts (over your tshirt) 5-10 minutes before feeding time. ** They can also be chilled in the freezer to provide relief for hot engorged breasts (just put them inside a plastic bag before you freeze)
The flexible design enables you to position the heat pack for comfort, and it can be used on other aching body parts too. When rolled into a spiral it will deliver comfort to your breasts without scolding nipples.
Made in New Zealand from a 100% cotton outer, filled with 100% NZ natural wheat. 100% Gel Free. One heat pack.
** Place heat pack in the microwave with 1 cup of water. Heat for 60 seconds, (this time will depend on your microwave capacity so test temperature on your wrist before use). Warning: Always heat with 1 cup of water to prevent overheating. Always test temperature before use.
