Milk blebs are tiny, blister-like formations that occur on the nipple during breastfeeding. They are typically caused by a blockage of a milk duct, resulting in a small blister or white spot on the nipple’s surface.
Milk Duct Blockage: Milk blebs can occur when a milk duct becomes obstructed, preventing milk from flowing freely. This blockage may be due to a build-up of milk, skin debris, or a clogged pore.
Engorgement: Excessive breast fullness and engorgement can contribute to milk blebs. When the breasts are overly full, it can lead to milk duct blockages and the formation of blisters.
Improper Latch or Positioning: Inadequate latch or incorrect breastfeeding positioning can put pressure on specific areas of the nipple, increasing the likelihood of milk blebs.
Milk blebs can be a source of discomfort for breastfeeding mothers, but with correct diet, adequate hydration and effective latch and positioning while feeding, the healing properties of Silver Mama Nipple Cups provide instant relief due to the anti-inflammatory properties. The antimicrobial properties of silver prevent infection in the area surrounding the milk bleb, reducing the risk of complications and promoting healing.
Silver Mama nipple cups provide a protective barrier for the nipples, allowing them to heal while continuing to breastfeed.
