Breast-Warmers™ provide warm breastfeeding therapy in an effective, continuous and safe way that is practical and convenient. This is wonderful, comfortable and easy to use lactation aid.
This warm breastfeeding therapy is warm as long as it’s worn, no heating, no boiling, no microwaving. The safe breast aid, with no risk of burning and inconsistent or uncomfortable heat. Breast-Warmers™ are made of a super effective thin material, and simply warms up by reflecting your own body heat. Breast-Warmers™ are never hot, instead they provide effective, gentle and safe warmth simply from being worn.
How to get the most out of Breast-Warmers™ for vasospasm, blocked ducts and Mastitis
Wear Breast-Warmers™ as needed; for a short time just before a feed, or even all day and night, just slip inside the bra or crop-top as required. This gentle warmth effectively relieves pain and discomfort and helps the milk to flow better. Simply wear as you find comfortable and helpful.
The Original and Only Breast-Warmers
This is the original and only 1987 Breast-Warmers™ be aware of anything that you need to heat up, which poses a risk of causing serious damage to breast tissue. The key is to have gentle warmth, not heat. These provide safe and gentle warmth for as long as they are worn, over and over again, wash after wash. We supply these to customers and hospitals worldwide.
Breast-Warmers are importantly non-absorbent to reduce the risk of bacteria growth and thrush, be safe, keep the breast dry with a nursing pad which can be changed as needed. Don’t use with sticky-tape or other harsh/plastic material.
The breast aid may help in reduction of breast pain due to hormonal changes, menopause and post-surgery. Check with your surgeon if this is applicable to you.
Breast-Warmers are self-warming, very thin and easy to wear, they fit flat inside your bra, possibly sticking out slightly from the bra lining as they need to cover the milk ducts in order to be most effective. Should you need the breast aid for nipple vasospasm, they do not need to cover as large an area and a small size is recommended. This breastfeeding aid is ideal prior to expressing breast milk, including collecting colostrum with Primo-Lacto.
Warming the breasts 20 min before expressing increases the milk yield according to a 2014 study.
Warm breasts safely with self-heating Breast-Warmers that can never overheat and burn.

More About NurseEZ
The Non-Surgical Correction For Flat And Inverted Nipples
- Sanitise before use, especially if used before breastfeeding.
- Apply a small amount of olive oil or preferred ointment to areola and nipple.
- Center cup over nipple and squeeze gently. Keeping rim flat, push into areola, then release.
- If it does not stay on, repeat, push in deeper and make sure edges are flat all the way round.
- Use breast shells (Milk-Savers Collection Shells) over NurseEZ if they fall off easily.
- If suction is too strong, remove and try again, squeezing less before letting go.
- Practice a few times to find a comfortable suction level.
Please note this product is suitable for anyone who like to draw out flat or inverted nipples, men, women and young adults who like to try this inexpensive, discreet and non-invasive solution.
Do not wear over 15 minutes the first day. If tolerated well, it may be reapplied later in the day with wearing time increased to 30 minutes.
If no discomfort or pain, advance the time you wear NurseEZ the next day to one hour. If it becomes uncomfortable, reduce suction and wear for shorter intervals. Do not increase time if tenderness, sensitivity, redness or pain is experienced.
Each day slowly increase the time as tolerated. Keep a check on the nipple color while it is being worn as you advance your time during
the early treatment period. You may be able to wear NurseEZ the non-surgical correction for inverted nipples for five to six hours without tenderness. Do not rush treatment time; go by what allows for comfort. Do NOT wear over eight hours in a 24 hour period. If worn for too long or with too strong of suction, they may cause nipple trauma: pain, bleeding, blisters, sores and scabs. Follow instructions carefully.
NurseEZ for non-surgical correction for inverted nipples may be worn for short periods daily for several weeks or months as needed for maintenance.
Use caution with pregnancy in the last trimester since nipple stimulation may result in Braxton-Hicks type contractions. The suction from
the device is constant and not likely to stimulate nerve endings, but the risk is still there. If contractions are noticed related to wearing
the device, stop use and contact your OB. If you have a history of premature labor, are considered at risk for premature labor, or
especially if you have been prohibited from sexual activity during the pregnancy, do not use the NurseEZ without discussing your
specific situation with your doctor.
If the use of the device must be discontinued, discuss with the OB when to safely resume.
In the last trimester is where problems with use in pregnancy are more likely. Leaking milk may also make wearing it more
difficult as it will dislodge easily. If it fills with colostrum, empty, rinse and reapply.
Wear the silicone thimble 30 minutes prior to feeding baby. If they cause some milk to leak out, the cups may release sooner;
simply empty the milk and re-apply. (The milk may be saved if device is clean and emptied quickly.) REMOVE BEFORE NURSING
Keep out of reach of children as this product could be a choking hazard. Developed by Marsha Bearden RN, IBCLC.
