A Helping Hug for Nursing Moms

Breastfeeding is beneficial for mom and baby. While some moms have an easy time breastfeeding, others suffer from plugged ducts, milk blisters, blebs (nipple blisters) or even mastitis.

Warm moist compresses help soothe the symptoms of plugged ducts and mastitis. Doctors and lactation consultants recommend applying heat to the affected area prior to breastfeeding and then gently massaging the blocked area when nursing. Cold compresses can be used between feedings to soothe pain and reduce inflammation.

I recently had a chance to review The Shower Hug (pictured here). This soft, supportive terry cloth bra can be worn in the shower to provide gentle support for full or engorged breasts and to shield sensitive nipples from harsh shower sprays and the chemical residues in many bath products.

As one of the 20% of nursing moms who suffered with plugged ducts and other nursing aliments I think every mom should have a Shower Hug on hand for self-treatment since this product is just perfect for holding warm compresses and cold compresses on the breasts.
