It can occur during pregnancy and at times related to feeding. Cold temperatures typically trigger the vasospasm and make it worse. It is a very painful experience.
One common treatment is to keep the breast and nipples warm.
We have a wonderful new product, Breastwarmers, which are purposely designed for mothers that suffer from nipple vasospasms. The Breastwarmers reflect your body heat, which can help ease the pain. Plus they can also absorb milk leaks, and are reusable breast pads.
Breastwarmers can be used by women with Raynaud’s Phenomenon, to boost milk supply due to the warmth that is provided to milk ducts, and to help with let-down or expressing. They can also be worn by women that suffer from nipple vasospasm (chilled nipples) who are not breastfeeding.
For more information about this product, and to order, please view our main webstore here: http://www.breastmates.co.nz/breastwarmers.html

Well this little necklace is a nursing necklace pendant that mum wears. baby can focus on the colour contrast, touch and feel, and just keep drinking their milk!
Nursing necklaces are a nifty little invention! Plus because it is made from safe materials etc, it can also double as a chewable interest too (after you've finished feeding)
You can order your HeartString Nursing Necklace from Breastmates

Baby Won't Take a Bottle:
Some feedback from a happy customer, I bet this mum is very relieved!!
I bought a ChuChu teat off you the other day.. I have been battling - and i mean battling, since my little girl was 3 weeks old for her to take a bottle. She is now nearly four months and FINALLY she will take some expressed milk thanks to the Chu Chu. Wish I had heard about it earlier as in my cupboard I have every bottle and teat known to man!! Thanks so much, Kate
You can learn more about this fantastic teat, and how it works for babies on our webstore here: http://www.breastmates.co.nz/chu_chu_teats.html

In the DVD, a number of New Zealand mothers will talk about their experiences of breastfeeding. The DVD, which will have input from breastfeeding experts, will provide a useful tool for mothers (as well as partners and family/whānau) wanting to know more about the rewards and challenges of breastfeeding. While it will be modelled on the structure and information in the British DVD From Bump to Breastfeeding, the DVD will present an entirely New Zealand perspective.
Very cool - we like this
