Be sure to use only gentle pressure when massaging breast tissue to prevent further inflammation or trauma.

Low Milk Supply Instructions

Before breastfeeding or pumping:

Step 1: Heat Lactamo by submerging it in a cup of hot water for 3 minutes (Note: this can be as hot as desired depending on need, ranging from luke warm to boiling) OR placing it in a conventional steam steriliser for one cycle.

Roll it between your palms for 10 seconds to make sure it’s not too hot. 

Note: Do not put Lactamo in a microwave. 

Step 2: Roll Lactamo over your breast for a few minutes, always massaging towards the nipple. 

This may help stimulate milk production, boost blood flow and encourage your let-down reflex.  

Step 3: Repeat Step 2. Try alternating between rolling your heated Lactamo towards and over your nipple with gentle circular movements towards the nipple.  

This may increase circulation and stimulate your nipple. Nipple stimulation has been shown to trigger the release of oxytocin - the hormone responsible for the let-down reflex. 

During breastfeeding or pumping: 

Step 4:  Repeat Step 2 for as long as you can whilst feeding or pumping, always taking care to remain focused on the quality of your baby’s feeding and not disrupt their attachment to your nipple.  

 

If you have ongoing issues with low milk supply, speak to your healthcare professional. 

The importance of breast massage

Scientific studies recommend breast massage and the combination of temperature, movement and compression to address the most of common breastfeeding issues.

Breast massage using the three components (temperature, movement and compression) have the ability to: 

  • improve blood circulation 
  • facilitate lymph drainage
  • improve the quality of breastmilk  

How does Lactamo work?

Lactamo has been specially designed with every breastfeeding mama’s individual needs in mind. 

Lactamo is covered in a mix of solid and hollow lumps, some larger, some smaller, allowing you to find the right firmness and pattern of movement to help your personal breastfeeding needs. And because all breasts need to be treated with care, Lactamo’s (medical grade) silicone outer and gel inside are super-duper soft, even after they’ve been chilled in the freezer. And when we say soft, we mean it – Lactamo is as soft as a marshmallow.  

Your breastfeeding needs will change as your baby grows, which is where Lactamo’s versatile design comes in handy. With Lactamo’s different textures and levels of firmness you can use it to suit your specific needs and preferences. Lactamo is here to support you during those sensitive times (and all the way through your entire breastfeeding journey). 

We’re not a fan of nasties (and we know you’re not either), which is why the outside of Lactamo is crafted from 100% medical grade silicone and we’ve used a non-toxic gel (a common food additive) inside. Lactamo is included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (371782) as a Class 1 Medical Device. After all, nothing is more important than your and your baby’s health and safety.

Why Lactamo

Lactamo is here to help mum with the most common breastfeeding challenges experienced by 92% of mums. With glowing customer testimonials, reviews from healthcare professionals and leading lactation consultants, it’s no wonder Lactamo has picked up a slew of awards for being a world first “game-changer” in breastfeeding.
