HOW LACTAMO WORKS
temperature, movement + compression
Lactamo is a soft sphere with hollow surface lumps filled with gel. Lactamo can be heated or cooled and has been specifically developed for breastfeeding.
“Lactamo should be an essential item for every breastfeeding Mother! So simple, but so helpful.”Mum of 3
“Thank you, Lactamo! I had experienced oversupply, pain and engorgement, but using Lactamo helped deal with all of these issues. And after using Lactamo I didn’t get any more episodes of mastitis. Lactamo has helped me breastfeed my 2 children and I am so grateful.Mum of 2
Lactamo is a soft ball specifically designed for breast tissue. It can be heated or cooled (depending on requirements) and is applied directly to breast tissue. Lactamo can be used before, during or after breastfeeding, in the shower, and with massage oils. Lactamo is heated by submerging it in boiling water for 3 minutes. Lactamo can also be heated in a conventional steam steriliser for one cycle. Lactamo can be cooled in the freezer (preferably for at least 2 hours), or in a glass of iced water for 3 minutes.
For a few minutes before a feed, roll heated Lactamo over the surface of the breast, always massaging towards the nipple, applying firm but comfortable pressure to the breast.
