Here to help with breastfeeding. The Lactamo ball facilitates breast massage with temperature. This combination helps with common breastfeeding problems including oversupply, undersupply, blocked ducts and engorgement. Heatable, coolable and reusable.
Temperature, Movement + Compression
Lactamo is a soft sphere with hollow surface lumps filled with gel. Lactamo can be heated or cooled and has been specifically developed for breastfeeding.
Lactamo is a soft ball specifically designed for breast tissue. It can be heated or cooled (depending on requirements) and is applied directly to breast tissue. Lactamo can be used before, during or after breastfeeding, in the shower, and with massage oils. Lactamo is heated by submerging it in boiling water for 3 minutes. Lactamo can also be heated in a conventional steam steriliser for one cycle. Lactamo can be cooled in the freezer (preferably for at least 2 hours), or in a glass of iced water for 3 minutes.
For a few minutes before a feed, roll heated Lactamo over the surface of the breast, always massaging towards the nipple, applying firm but comfortable pressure to the breast.
How Lactamo works
We want Lactamo to be there when you need it the most (whether that’s before, during, or after feed or even in the shower). And it’s versatile too, which means you can heat it up or cool it down (depending on what works best for you) and apply it straight to your breast.
So, let’s explain Lactamo’s anatomy
In the middle of Lactamo you’ll find solid lumps, along with hollow lumps at either end of the ball. One side is covered in larger lumps, while the other features small lumps (because no two breasts are the same).
We get it: your needs are going to change, which is where Lactamo’s flexible design comes in handy
From oh-so-tender postpartum breasts to navigating a new feeding routine, Lactamo is here to support you during those sensitive times (and all the way through your entire breastfeeding journey). Get a feel for which areas of Lactamo suit your needs best.
We’re not a fan of nasties, which is why the outside of Lactamo is crafted from 100% medical grade silicone. Plus, we’ve used a non-toxic gel (a common food additive) inside. But, if Lactamo becomes damaged and this gel is exposed, discard Lactamo and rinse off the gel (and don’t consume it).
Remember to wash Lactamo before you use it. Simply give it a wash in warm, soapy water or throw it in your steam steriliser (note - not a microwave steriliser) - it’s that easy.
Make sure to handle your breasts gently, especially if they’re engorged, to avoid bruises.
Do not heat Lactamo in a microwave. Lactamo is not designed to be heated above 100°C.
Don’t use Lactamo if it’s too hot (make sure you can comfortably roll it in your palms for 10 seconds).
Remember, Lactamo is for external use only. Do not use Lactamo on broken skin.
Don’t let Lactamo end up in the toy basket - it’s not a toy! Make sure to only use it as directed and handle it with care.
Only apply a comfortable amount of pressure to avoid causing any damage.
If it becomes damaged (such as if the outer silicone is cut or malformed), discard Lactamo.
Discard your ball one year after you’ve purchased it. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for recycling options for Lactamo.
Do not use Lactamo with massage oils: these may interfere with breastfeeding, and may interfere with Lactamo’s silicone surface. If symptoms persist or if you’re unsure or concerned, stop using Lactamo and consult your healthcare professional.
