ILVERETTE ® are small cups crafted out of pure 925 silver that fit over and help to protect nipples while breastfeeding. Silver is a natural antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial metal that also contains anti-inflammatory agents. It heals and prevents cuts, wounds, cracks, soreness, and infections.
Since 2002, SILVERETTE ® cups have enjoyed a resounding and growing success with mothers, doctors and obstetricians. They are the only and original nursing cups made in Italy by fully licensed silversmiths.
These cups are essential for anyone who wants to prevent or who is experiencing issues with sore, cracked nursing nipples. SILVERETTE ® cups are easy and comfortable to use – and no additional creams or lotions are necessary.

HOW TO USE SILVERETTE ®:
To prevent or ease sore nursing nipples, 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. Keep SILVERETTE ® on as much as possible between breastfeeding sessions. Remove cups before breastfeeding. Do not use any other nipple treatments in conjunction with SILVERETTE ® . Doing so may compromise or reduce the efficacy of the product.
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.
CAN SILVERETTE ® CUPS BE USED TOGETHER WITH ABSORBENT BREAST PADS?:
Yes, they can. If you plan on using absorbent breast pads, place the breast pads over the SILVERETTE ® cups. Your nursing bra will hold everything in place.
DOES THE EFFICACY OF SILVERETTE ® CUPS DIMINISH OVER TIME?:
No, the efficacy of SILVERETTE ® cups remains the same, no matter how long you use them! You can save and use your SILVERETTE ® cups for each child that you have and breastfeed.
CAN SILVERETTE ® CUPS BE USED TO PREVENT SORE NIPPLES?:
Absolutely! We recommend the use of SILVERETTE ® as a preventive measure of sore, cracked, nursing nipples. Silver is a natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal metal that kills bacteria and infections before they start.
MY SILVERETTE ® CUPS CAME WITH BLACK MARKS/STAINS ON THEM. ARE THEY DEFECTED?:
Not to worry, the cups are not defected. As these are individually handcrafted by the Silversmiths in Italy, there may be fire stains left from manufacturing. These are not your usual Shiny Polished Silver products so there may be inconsistencies of finishing. You can easily clean them up with a little of Baking Soda and warm water before use and also as part of your maintenance of the cups.
