Motherhood is the most overwhelming and empowering phases in a woman’s life. It is enjoyable, but comes with a great responsibility of bringing up a new born in the healthiest way. Breastfeeding is by far the best natural, emotional and spiritual connection between the mom and the baby. Breast milk is “liquid gold”, precious for the baby’s health and well being. It is loaded with essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals, protein, and antibodies.
Breastfeeding is important for both the mother and the child, however, there may be some problems associated with it. Plugged milk ducts, Nipple vasospasm (Reynaud’s syndrome), Nipple soreness, Engorgement, Mastitis, Expression and breast infection are some of the common problems that new moms may experience. Warm breastfeeding therapy is a simple and effective approach in preventing and curing painful breast problems associated with nursing a newborn baby. Breast warmers offer instant and consistent heat to relieve the pain and discomfort resulting from feeding. They also help to boost milk flow and stimulate let-down or expressing by providing heat to the milk ducts.
Warmers are made from effective and safe Flectalon insulation and they automatically warm up using your own body heat. They provide continuous and gentle warmth. A comfortable and effective warm breastfeeding therapy, the breast warmers are washable and reusable. They are simply inserted inside the bra or crop-top, any time and can be worn as needed, either for a while or entire day and night. Breast warmers are quite thin and well contoured. They are also tested for allergy.
A reflective insulating and breathable layer is generally included to warm the breasts and make breastfeeding much easier and discrete. Breast gel pads also provide warm therapy to breast feeding mothers. These are non toxic, safe and hypoallergenic. It is very important to understand that the breast tissue is quite sensitive and there is a significant burning risk involved in warming the breasts by placing something hot on them. Breast warmers therefore are never hot; they simply provide gentle warmth to the breasts. A warm shower or placing a towel soaked in warm water on the breasts could be as effective. Gentle massaging of breasts and some relaxation techniques may help to stimulate milk flow and significantly reduce the engorgement or inflammation. Frequent feeding also helps in soothing the pain.
Breast warmers are non-invasive aids for easier breastfeeding. They are also effective in providing fast relief from hard, lumpy or sore breasts, help with expressing and soothing blocked ducts. They are particularly beneficial for new moms who choose not to breast feed and have to manage milk reduction. Breast warmers are non absorbent so it is recommended to wear nursing pads for leaky breasts.
