Warm and Cool Therapy Reusable Breast Packs
Are you suffering breast pain or soreness due to breastfeeding related issues such as mastitis, engorgement or other reasons?
You can try cabbage leaves to cool your breasts, but you will start to smell like cabbage and they only stay cool for a minute or two at best. Ice and heat packs work well, but it's hard to keep them in place without holding them, which can be quite uncomfortable while trying to juggle a baby.
At Mumasil we've designed warm and cold packs that shape around your breast and sit comfortably inside your bra. They provide soothing relief and ease discomfort associated with breast pain. They can also be used in tandem with your Mumasil Breast Milk Saver or breast pump to help encourage a let-down when feeding.
The breast packs are safe and non toxic and include two soft breast pack covers for greater comfort on the skin. The covers also feature a clip that will hold the packs in place around your Mumasil Breast Milk Saver or breast pump.
For Heat Therapy/Hot Compress
Insert the breast pack in the cover before microwaving and heat using the following microwave guide.
- 700 Watts: 15 secs
- 1000 Watts: 12 secs
- 1250 Watts: 10 secs
Additional heating in 3 second increments only until desired temperature is achieved. It is important that you do no overheat the breast pack as this can damage the gel beads.
Place a room temperature pack in hot water (around 80C) for approximately 3-5 minutes or until desired temperature is reached.
For Cold Therapy/Cold CompressPlace the breast pack in the freezer for at least one hour prior to use.
The Mumasil Warm and Cool Breast Packs can be attached to the outside of your breast pump flanges or the flange on your Breast Milk Saver. Simply place your breast pack inside the breast pack cover and heat as per heating guidelines. Wrap the Breast pack around the outside of the breast pump flanges and use the press stud to clip the Breast pack into place. The warmth from the breast pack encourages a letdown and milk flow when pumping.
How to Use With your Mumasil Breast Milk Saver or Breast Pump
Have bought as a gift. I’m sure much more appealing than cabbage leaves
I had a fantastic shopping experience. I ordered a couple of items however the button was broken on the breast pad covers. I notified Mumasil and they posted replacements which arrived within a matter of days via express post. Thank you, I’ll definitely be coming back!
Useful for pumping as it increases the milk release. Also good to remove breast lumps before mastitis develops. They come with a cloth case that make them comfortable to wear. For me the main issue is that the heat doesn't last much, only about 5 minutes, so you need to keep heating them. Can't overheat them more because if not they burn. They have a button to tie them but is not really useful as you can hold them with the bra. Careful if using them while breastfeeding as the baby can get burned.
I absolutely love my Mumasil cool and heat therapy packs, I have Endometriosis and Adenomyosis and I experience a lot of burning and ripping sensations in my breasts so these really help ease the pain.
These have been a lifesaver for engorgement pain and discomfort. I will be buying these as part of my baby shower gifts from now on and would recommend to any new mum as part of her breast feeding kit.
