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.
Breast-Warmers 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.

Primo-Lacto: A Closed System For Colostrum Collection
Human Study Results: Primo-Lacto reduces colostrum loss by 43% and is the preferred method by mums and nurses/LCs over standard practice in hospitals. Our clinical pilot study was conducted at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital, John Muir, and Indiana Memorial Hospital of South Bend, USA
Breastfeeding a sick or premature baby can be challenging for moms and clinicians. Every baby deserves to have the best nutritional start, and every mom deserves to understand that their colostrum is the best food for their baby the first few days of life. I hope Primo-Lacto will empower new mothers who can’t breastfeed right away, or who choose not to embark on a full course of breastfeeding, to supply their newborn with the incredible antibodies and nutritional value their colostrum contains. –Jules Sherman, CEO Maternal Life

NippleEZ for Flat and Inverted Nipples
- Sanitise before use, especially if used before breastfeeding.
- Apply a small amount of olive oil or preferred oil 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 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.
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 the next day to one hour. If cups become 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. Once it can be worn 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.
They may be worn for short periods daily for several weeks or months as needed for maintenance. Notify your health care professional if your nipple turns black, blue, purple or white while in use.
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.
