Philips Avent Niplettes is a unique device which has been designed by Avent to allow women with inverted nipples to breastfeed their child. Inverted or non-protractile nipples are a reality for large numbers of women, causing psychological distress and making breastfeeding difficult for mother and baby. Inverted nipples occur because of short lactiferous (milkbearing) ducts which tether the nipple and prevent it projecting.
The Philips AVENT Niplette is a simple and painless device that can be used by women of any age to correct inverted nipples. Using suction to gently stretch the lactiferous ducts over time, it can be tucked discreetly inside the bra and can achieve a permanent correction between one and three months of continuous use, for eight hours per day.To obtain the best and swiftest results the Niplette should ideally be worn as much as possible during the day and night and at the maximum suction comfortable for you. One Niplette is required for each inverted nipple.
It is possible to wear the device overnight provided you do not sleep on your front and it may be convenient to wear a loose fitting bra. If required the Philips Avent Niplette can be cleaned in warm, soapy water.

Avent Niplette is a really good product, however, difficult to wear them for more than 2 hours at a time. Either they become very uncomfortable or they fall off..(Posted on 27/02/2012)
