Give yourself the best chance of a smooth breastfeeding journey as part of your preparation for labour, birth and postpartum.
Breastfeeding provides all the energy and nutrients that your baby needs in the first six months of life, up to half of those nutrients in the second six-months and up to one-third of their energy and nutritional needs in their second year. It’s epic.
If you want to breastfeed your baby, the best path to success is preparation and an understanding of how it works. From skin-to-skin and latch to nutrient dense foods that will sustain milk supply. I’ve also got the best breastfeeding products to help you along the way. You’ll find it all right here.

If you’re finding it challenging to establish breastfeeding, or having trouble later in your breastfeeding journey, we are here to help.

Using the healing properties of silver, SILVERETTE® is made from 925 is proven to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial benefits to prevent and repair the nipple skin at all stages of the breastfeeding or pumping journey.
It’s my first time breast feeding, so I don’t have anything to compare to BUT I have loved these & have not taken them off in my first 2 weeks postpartum (obviously to shower and breastfeed lol).
I have had no nipple damage and I can’t imagine trying to wear a bra without them.
They’re like a little suit of armour for your nips.
This is my second time around breastfeeding and these are a game changer. It prevents from having to use nipple balms (who knows how much bubs is actually ingesting) and has kept my nipples from completely cracking.
I umm’ed and ahh’ed about getting the silicone covers, but I’m glad I got them. I wore them once without them and I could definitely feel it.
Easy to keep clean too.
An absolute must and I now call these my bionic nipples!!
At breaking point with cracked, blistered and bleeding nipples, I was recommended Silverettes. I paid for express post and they arrived the following day and they certainly lived up to their reputation. Within 24 hours I was getting relief and by 7 days my nipples were completely back to normal and no more pain. Honestly every new mum or even returning mums need these for their breast feeding journeys.
These beauties are the best! If you are having any cracking, white spotting, or issues at all, do yourself a favour and buy a pair of these babies. They honestly help heal everything in a matter of days, if you are careful wearing them day and night outside of feeds. A really lovely self-care ritual when combined with the maternal instincts nipple balm, in your feeding bra before bed (or just stuck on with the balm). They are so soothing and protective! Make a great addition to a gift pack for a new mum or someone struggling with feeding issues. Well worth it!
