Ideal for use before or in the first 6 months of pregnancy
Ideally, the Niplette should be used before pregnancy and be worn in 8 hour periods per day or night*. If the breasts are not too sensitive, it can also be used in the first six months of pregnancy to achieve a permanent correction or, after the birth of the baby, for a few minutes before each feed. The Niplette will suck the nipple out, enabling the baby to latch on easily and help establish breastfeeding during the first few days. The permanent cosmetic correction can then be effected once breastfeeding is over. If this is the case, the Niplette can be safely applied again from time to time.
Clinically proven results
Clinical trials* have been carried out on the Niplette and proved successful in achieving a permanent correction to flat or inverted nipples, whether the condition existed since puberty or was a result of breast reduction surgery. Provided that they had not undergone breast surgery, pregnant women who had been concerned about breastfeeding all went on to breastfeed successfully. A permanent correction is normally achieved in between one and three months of continuous use.
Niplette will not function once milk flow comes in fully. However, by then baby will have become used to successfully latching on to the nipple.
