How do TendHer reusable cooling breast soothers help?
TendHer soothers provide targeted cold or heat therapy to your breasts and nipples, and reduce friction.
Cold therapy works by reducing blood flow, which can reduce the inflammation and swelling that causes pain. It also makes the area slightly numb which can help relieve pain and itching.
On the flip side, heat therapy works by increasing blood flow which can promote healing and reduce the perception of pain.
TendHer reusable cooling breast soothers can be used to treat:
- Sore nipples - avoid harsh soaps and ointments on your nipples, our natural product delivers relief, can be used with natural creams, protects from friction and prevents minor leaking.
- Engorgement - a couple of days after your baby is born and your milk comes in it’s normal for your breasts to become bigger and feel heavy, warm and sore. All going well, things should settle down within 24 - 48 hours. But normal breast fullness can lead to engorgement if your baby is not nursing often enough and/or not removing milk effectively. Engorged breasts become very full, firm, hard, and the skin can be red, taut and shiny. Some mothers have a low-grade fever. The breast may become so swollen that the nipples flatten making it difficult for your baby to latch. Applying warmth with a TendHer soother while feeding helps to get the milk flowing, while a cold soother can help relieve pain and inflammation. And applying cold soothers to your breasts after feedings for 15-20 minutes can help to reduce swelling and inflammation.
- Blocked milk ducts - sometimes the ducts that carry milk from deep in the breast to the nipple can become blocked. Milk builds up and a lump forms leading to soreness and engorgement. Applying warmth with a TendHer soother helps get the milk flowing again, while a cold soother can help relieve pain and inflammation.
- Mastitis - a blocked duct can sometimes lead to an infection known as mastitis. Use a TenderHer soother to apply warmth to the sore area before feeding and aid massage treatment. Use a cold soother after feeding to reduce discomfort.
Breastfeeding is a beautiful gift that you can give your child that will benefit them for the rest of their life. Just make sure you’re taking care of yourself, too!
