Supple Cup Fittings

Supple Cups aid in correcting flat & inverted nipples for proper breastfeeding. One of nature’s gifts is being able to breastfeed your baby, but for some mothers this is not always possible. Supple Cups help a baby latch-on by gently stretching the nipple. For many mothers this is a new and permanent solution for flat and inverted nipples. Supple Cups can reduce breastfeeding problems for many mothers. Your baby gets a deeper latch and has fewer problems latching on. Supple Cups will aid in correcting inverted nipples, and can also reduce edema and engorgement when a normal nipple is flattened. Supple Cups can be worn starting at 37 Weeks prenatally so as to give your nipples the time they need to slowly and gently stretch prior to the birth of your baby.  They work by creating a gentle vacuum from within, pulling the nipple into the Supple Cup.

We call it The Supple Way : Supple Cups + Breast Shells = Easier Latch

Supple Cup Fitting Appointments Include:

  • Breast & Nipple Exam
  • Supple Cup Fitting (5 Sizes Available)
  • Medela Breast Shells for Concealment
  • Sample Pack of Lanolin for Supple Cups
