Ideal 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 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 applied again from time to time.
Clinically proven results
Clinical trials* have been carried out on the Niplette proved success in achieving a permanent correction to flat or inverted nipples, whether the condition existed since puberty, or was as a result of breast reduction surgery. Provided they had not undergone breast surgery, pregnant women who had been concerned about breast feeding all went on to breast feed 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 succesfully latching on to the nipple.
