Earthmother Silver Nursing Cups for Breastfeeding  - Natural Healing for Cracked or Sore Nipples

Our summary: We’ve been selling silver nursing cups at Earthmother since 2011 when a lovely Australian customer told us about them. We were the first Irish company to sell silver cups and they have been one of our most popular and rewarding products ever since. If you are having trouble with cracked or sore nipples from breastfeeding, this is the most natural product you could find to ease and prevent further soreness.

Silver nursing Cups work to prevent sore nipples and protect and heal cracked nipples while breastfeeding. They are recommended by midwives and lactation consultants in antenatal classes, maternity hospitals and homes across Ireland. Earthmother silver cups like silverette nursing cups are made with 925 grade silver and can help prevent, protect and heal cracked or sore nipples, usually within 24 hours.

How Earthmother Silver Nursing Cups Work:

Silver has been used in medicine for many years because of its antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal properties and its ability to heal. Silver cups have been around for centuries, handed down from generation to generation to help new mothers safely and comfortably breastfeed their babies. 

Earthmother Silver Nursing Cups are easy to use, hygienic and highly effective. A totally natural product that work on their own, with no need for creams or lotions anywhere near your baby.

Benefits for You and Your Baby:

  • A totally natural product that prevents and protects sore, cracked nipples, redness or irritation.
  • Extremely hygienic and free of nickel or any toxic chemical.
  • Well-established efficacy and skin friendly.
  • Easy and comfortable to use and also acts as a physical shield for friction.
  • Helps prevent mastitis infections.
  • Doesn't require the use of creams or ointments, so no chemicals are passed to your baby.
  • No effect on the taste or odour of your breastmilk.
  • Also suitable for use during teething for any irritation and wounds that may occur.
  • Help you continue your breastfeeding journey quickly and comfortably.
  • Long lasting, sustainable, an eco friendly product that can be  passed onto the next generation.

How to Use Your Earthmother Silver Nursing Cups:

Wear the cups at all times except for when you’re feeding your baby. This can also help prevent any irritation or soreness occurring initially. They can be worn inside your bra next to your skin, and will also protect you from friction or chaffing from clothes etc if your nipples are tender and sensitive.

FOR ADVANCED WOUNDS AND CRACKS: In order to increase the effectiveness of the cups, it is recommended to remove them for a few hours during the day and ventilate the nipples.

Not recommended for those with silver allergies. If irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately. If symptoms worsen, you should contact your local lactation consultant or GP.

Choose the Best Size For You:

You can chose between the Regular or XL size depending on what works better for you (there isn't much of a difference though so don't worry too much) :

Regular: Width 4.5cm / Height 1.6cm - Best suited to bra size C cup or less or an areola dimension less than 4.5cm

XL:           Width 5cm / Height 1.6cm - Best suited to bra size C cup or more or an areola dimension more than 4.5cm


How to Clean Your Earthmother Silver Cups:

Before first use, mix a small amount of water with bicarbonate of soda (you can find it in the baking aisle at your supermarket) to make a paste, and apply it inside the cups. You can clean like this between every use but you can also just use a clean, damp cloth to remove milk residue between each use and then do a clean once a day with the bicarbonate mix.

Silver can sometimes tarnish and become yellower over time but this will not affect its ability to heal.


5 Star Reviews:

Nipples best friend!
Thursday, 24 February 2022  | 

I had heard of the benefits of Silver healing cups when I was pregnant with my twins from other moms of twins so decided I had to give them a go, and I'm so grateful I did. I used them since the day my twins were born, they're now 5 weeks, and I haven't had a moment of pain which is a far cry from when I had my daughter 7 years ago and sadly didn't know of Silver healing cups then. Highly recommend them to any breastfeeding/pregnant and hoping to breastfeed mom's, you won't regret it.

Helped a lot
Thursday, 3 February 2022  | 

I bought these on the recommendation from my midwife. I was suffering a lot of pain while breastfeeding as my baby had tongue tie and it wasn't spotted for over a week. By the time it was diagnosed I was in agony!!
I was really impressed with the quick delivery as I did need them urgently!
They were very comfortable to wear and definitely helped heal my nipples but they were visible through my clothing and I accidentally wore them without breast pads which made a big mess!
I would recommend them to a friend although I would advise that you wear breast pads as well.

Super product & fantastic customer service
Monday, 6 December 2021  | 

Bought these as a tried and trusted lifeline for a breastfeeding Mum - so simple to use and protective properties invaluable. Also really impressed by the wonderful customer service experience, particularly Siobhan’s dedication in ensuring a minor payment processing issue was resolved quickly and easily!

A breastfeeding must
Saturday, 27 November 2021  | 

This is the best investment you will ever make in terms of breastfeeding. My nipples had become a bit grazed by day 3. No matter what clothes/pads I wore - it was causing irritation. I ordered these and they arrived the next day! Now I'm pain free and enjoying feeding my baby daughter!
