Our Breast ice/heat packs can be warmed or cooled to assist with your breastfeeding journey.
They are designed to fit with ease inside your bra (nursing or normal), around your breasts and nipples, and even your breast pump! They are fantastic to use heated while pumping or expressing to assist with easing the flow of milk as you pump.
Our breast gel pads are great when heated to helping antenatal expressing of colostrum too! (always consult your doctor or midwife before doing so)
The breast gel pads are designed to help offer relief from soreness associated with breast feeding, blocked milk ducts and engorgement.
When heated, the breast pads can be used as a heat pack to help ease the flow of milk and blocked milk ducts. This can help reduce the amount of time needed for pumping or expressing.
When frozen, the breast pads can be used as an ice pack to help offer relief from engorgement, pain from inflammation, mastitis, blocked ducts and overall discomfort that can be a result of breastfeeding.
The pack can be heated or cooled.
