What is vasospasm? ABA (Australian Breastfeeding Association) explains it here: “Vasospasm happens when blood vessels tighten and go into spasm, so that blood does not flow normally. Mothers with vasospasm of the nipple feel sharp pain, burning or stinging in the nipple. It is usually accompanied by sudden whitening of the nipple, followed by a colour change from red to blue. There are two main causes of nipple vasospasm. It can be a response of the nipple to trauma, if the baby is not attached to the breast well. In this case, it tends to occur following breastfeeds. Attention to how your baby attaches can help resolve this problem. Vasospasm that occurs at random times not related to breastfeeds is more likely to be a condition related to Raynaud’s phenomenon, where a person experiences similar symptoms in fingers, toes, etc in response to exposure to cold.”
Can Breast-Warmers™overheat and burn me or my baby? Never! This is a gentle and safe breast aid, with no risk of burning, inconsistent or uncomfortable heat. Never apply hot water or hot pack to the breast as it does not take much to burn and harm delicate breast-tissue.Breast-Warmers™are gentle and safe for both mum and baby.
Can Breast-Warmers™be used for other applications than breastfeeding? Yes. Place on uterus for gentle pain relief after birth, hold in place with clothing. Also great to alleviate period pain.
