The correct way to use Silverette®

Follow the instructions and let silver do its magic
HOW TO WEAR
Leave a couple of drops of breast milk in each cup at the end or your breastfeeding session and place the cups directly over the nipple like a cupping glass. You can wear them under your bra and they can be used together with breast pads.
TO BREASTFEED
Remove the silver cups and gently rinse your nipples if you think that your baby could be bothered by milk debris. Do not use together with other nipple treatments. Doing so may compromise or reduce the effectiveness of the cups.
HOW TO CLEAN Silverette® cups
Wash them daily with warm water to remove any milk residues. To keep them shiny, make a paste using baking soda with a small amount of water. Rub the paste on the cups, rinse thoroughly and dry them.

Only the 925 silver’s purity

SIlverette® cups are made by 925 silver. 925 silver is the purest workable silver in existence, in fact with the purest silver (999 silver) it is only possible to silverplate or laminate artifacts whose structure is made up of other materials that can give allergies or to create stamped products that do not allow to produce the anatomical shape with a rounded apex respectful of the nipple.
