Nipple complaints? Silver caps come to the rescue!
I often think back to it with nostalgia, especially when I see mothers with their babies at the breast. My breastfeeding period. I thought it was a wonderful time. It gave me an enormous feeling of connection, with my child at the breast.
Okay, the beginning was a bit more difficult, it was a bit of a search for both of us. And the nights sometimes felt lonely – with a half-sleeping baby and a deep-sleeping man next to me, but once we got through those first weeks, I loved it. Fortunately, I didn’t really suffer from nipple complaints. But with some moms things are different…
Help is on the way!Breastfeeding doesn’t always run smoothly. Your nipples may feel rough, sore, and uncomfortable. And if there’s one thing you don’t want as a breastfeeding mom, it’s nipple problems. That is why Silver caps is happy to assist you. Such a natural and durable aid is safe for your baby and for you. They are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and wound healing. Isn’t that a nice list?!

And they also work against thrush – anti-fungal, remember! – and in bacterial and viral infections.
An ancient toolThis is not a new gadget, not a hype. Silver as a healing agent has been around since the Middle Ages. Women of nobility then used silver spoons for nipple complaints. The combination of breast milk, the healing factor of silver and oxygen remedy complaints and heal wounds. Of course Zilverkapjes has given it a modern, handy-to-use jacket. Fortunately, because I don’t see myself balancing with spoons on my nipples right away! It became apparent when I recently received an email from a midwife in my GreenKit inbox that it really is something for our time. “Say, do you already know silver caps?’ During my pregnancy and maternity period I have discovered that the advice of a midwife is worth gold, so take her advice! In Belgium you can easily order Zilverkapjes from your pharmacist or you can order them online. You can also find them in distribution points throughout the Netherlands.
A lasting memoryDo yourself a favor and put silver caps on your birth list. Mom deserves a present too, doesn’t she? What can I say, 2 presents! Silver caps are made of… you guessed it… silver. And that ensures that you can give yourself another gift in addition to painless breastfeeding: you can have your silver cap melted down into jewelry afterwards. What amazing!! For example, Zilverkapjes provides a beautiful memory of a hopefully beautiful time for you and your little one in 2 ways.
