How To Use Lactamo - There when you need it most

How to use Lactamo

We want Lactamo to be there when you need it the most. Whether that’s before, during, or after feed or even in the shower. Lactamo was designed to work when and where you need it.

Our tricks to ensure you get the best experience with Lactamo

Massage towards the nipple (it’s the same direction as the flow of your milk ducts).

Try all sides of Lactamo to find the right firmness and pattern of movement for your needs.

• When using Lactamo during feeding, don’t let it get in the way of your bub and ensure it doesn’t dislodge the nipple or upset their correct attachment to your breast.

• Your breasts are working hard, so only apply a comfortable amount of pressure when using it. Remember: lactating breasts are sensitive and massaging should feel supportive and gentle, not painful.

• If you’re experiencing a blocked duct, you may notice a painful lump on your breast. During this time, take extra care when using Lactamo. Use slow, gentle movements, particularly if your breast is engorged (as you’re likely to bruise easily during this time).

• When using a cooled Lactamo steer clear of massage and compression on your breast.

How to clean Lactamo

Remember to wash Lactamo before you use it. Simply give it a wash in warm, soapy water or throw it in your steam steriliser (note - not a microwave steriliser) - it’s that easy.

Warning – take care

  • Make sure to handle your breasts gently, especially if they’re engorged, to avoid bruises.

  • Do not heat Lactamo in a microwave. Lactamo is not designed to be heated above 100°C.

  • Don’t use Lactamo if it’s too hot (make sure you can comfortably roll it in your palms for 10 seconds).

  • Remember, Lactamo is for external use only. Do not use Lactamo on broken skin.

  • Don’t let Lactamo end up in the toy basket - it’s not a toy! Make sure to only use it as directed and handle it with care.

  • Only apply a comfortable amount of pressure to avoid causing any damage.

  • If it becomes damaged (such as if the outer silicone is cut or malformed), discard Lactamo.

  • Discard your ball one year after you’ve purchased it. Contact us at for recycling options for Lactamo.

Do not use Lactamo with massage oils: these may interfere with breastfeeding, and may interfere with Lactamo’s silicone surface. If symptoms persist or if you’re unsure or concerned, stop using Lactamo and consult your healthcare professional.
