How do the Livella silver cups work?
Germs, fungi and viruses disturb and prevent the healing process of the damaged skin. The antimicrobial effect of 999 silver prevents the growth of those germs and can even eliminate them. Silver ions in pure silver attack the bacteria and damage their cell walls, casing the germ to die. The damaged skin can heal faster. The silver cups can also be used in preventive sense – they prevent inflammations and support the skin’s healing process.
Why using Livella silver cups?
Why is it important to avoid creams?
The glands of nipples produce a specific secretion, which encourages the rooting reflex of babies. The scent of the secretion is similar to the scent of forewaters and supports the baby to find the nipple and its correct sucking position. Creams or similar products can interfere this specific scent. Despite of thorough cleansing, residues of creams can remain on the skin, which will be consumed during breastfeeding from the babies. Using the silver cups breastfeeding is possible at any time without cleaning of the nipples and the characteristic scent of the breast remains.
Before you start breast feeding, clean your nipples with warm water to remove any residual breast milk.
After breast feeding, you can place the silver cups directly on your nipples. The healing process can be accelerated by adding a few drops of breast milk. Other care products are not needed and are not recommended. You can wear the silver cups comfortably under your nursing bra and nursing pads. It is best to wear the silver cups all day and only take them off for breast feeding. Even if the discomfort has subsided, continue to use the silver cups to prevent new problems.
We recommend cleaning the silver cups regularly with warm water after use. After prolonged use, the silver cups should be cleaned with a texture of sodium bicarbonate and water. We do not recommend using any silver cleaning agents.
At Livella we signify for sustainability and demand for the highest quality of our product. Therefore we produce the silver cups hand-made in a small manufactory in Germany.
We exclusively use massive 999 silver – also known as pure silver for our Livella silver nursing cups. We derive the raw material from a German supplier. We abstain completely from supporting material or alloy. The material is free of nickel and copper.
The natural and high quality raw material of the Livella silver nursing cups enables longevity. The packaging consists oft he FSC seal and due to the production in Germany we avoid long transport paths and unnecessary CO₂ emissions.
We generally recommend to remove dried breast milk from the nipples before breast feeding. However, additional washing because of wearing the silver cups is not necessary, as the item is made of pure silver according to the highest standards and no product residue can adhere to the nipple.
The cups can be cleaned regularly after use with clear water and mild soap to remove milk residues. The silver prevents the absorption of bacteria and fungi. Since the silver cups are made of pure silver (natural product), the silver can turn yellowish after a longer period of time. A tarnishing or “discoloration” of the silver is a proof of high purity of the precious metal used. However, it has no influence on the effect. In order to counteract discoloration, we recommend cleaning the silver cups in a bath of sodium bicarbonate and water after prolonged use.
The cups are optimally adapted to the size of the nipples and therefore fit softly and gently to your skin (diameter 4.3cm, height in the middle 0.7cm). They do not serve to catch the excess milk. We therefore recommend inserting additional nursing pads in the bra to absorb the breast milk.
The silver cups serve to protect the nipples and additionally support wound healing. They protect the nipples from drying out and rubbing against clothing and also prevent them from buckling. However, they do not have any holes to be used during breast feeding.
