I was gifted a pair of Amorini nipple protection cups to use and review. I was very excited to try them as I had read fantastic reviews on a few Breastfeeding pages/groups on Facebook as well as Amazon in the past.
I am a new breastfeeding Mom again for the 4th time, I know what you are thinking, shouldn’t my nipples be used to breastfeeding by now? My answer is No. For the simple fact that it had been 1 ½ years since I last nursed and each baby has their own learning curve and nursing style. The mechanics may be the same however each baby is vastly different.
“Amorini harness the antibacterial properties of silver by offering nipple protection and a safe and natural way” is what the pamphlet says and I have to agree.
The protection it is talking about is that your nipples while wearing the Amorini nipple cups keeps your clothing from rubbing against them causing more pain. Before I starting using my Amorini nipple cups I had cracked and blistered nipples from breastfeeding, within a day and a half my blistered were gone and the cracks were healing. By day 3 they were completely healed up and felt significantly better.
Within a week I only needed to wear them when my nipples were sore instead of around the clock.
I do have to say that my favorite part of using the Amorini nipple cups was that I looked a bit like a Femmebot from Austin Powers, I thought it was funny and it made me feel attractive during those first few weeks of motherhood where you generally feel like you’ve been run over by a truck.
The only 2 things I didn’t like about the Amorini nipple cups is that I had to wash them after every breastfeeding session and that they sealed moisture in so when I leaked they filled with milk, while breastmilk is great for your skin and for healing it was having a wet lap from not paying attention on my part that I wasn’t a fan of. This can be avoided by wearing a breastpads and being ready for them to be full of milk.
My overall experience with using the Amorini nipple cups was very positive and I do believe this is a revolutionary product for all nursing Mom’s out there.
