    Perfect breastfeeding tool, if my boy didn't feed as much or fed too much the breast therapy pads really helped soothe me. I found using these a few days following a blocked duct that these cleared up quicker than when I didn't use it! Well worth the money, especially in the early days when you're both learning the art of breastfeeding!

    I've used this warm and it's very soothing when you're a bit sore or heavy. I had mastitis early on and it definitely made me more comfortable. That was over a month ago and I've been using Therapearl regularly since then; the mastitis hasn't reoccurred, and I can only conclude that the heat helps to keep the milk flowing well to avoid blockages!

    • How is Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy different from other products?

      Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy is the only product that has three uses in one. It can be used as cold therapy to treat/relieve engorgement, hot therapy to help relieve mastitis, and plugged ducts, as well as hot/warm as a breast pump aid to reduce time spent pumping.

    • What is engorgement and how can Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy help?

      In the early stages of nursing, it is not uncommon for a mum to experience swelling when her milk comes in, this is called engorgement. Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy can be used as a cold therapy to help treat engorgement.

    • What is mastitis and how can Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy help?

      Mastitis is an inflammation of the breast that can be caused by obstruction, infection and/or allergy. Mastitis is most common in the first 2-3 weeks of breastfeeding post-birth, but can occur at any stage of breastfeeding or lactation. Mastitis may come on abruptly, and usually affects only one breast.

      Common recommendations for mastitis treatment are heat (with a warm/hot compress), massage, rest, and emptying the breast (by breastfeeding or pumping) and it sometimes requires antibiotics if symptoms are not improving in 12-24 hours, or if mum is acutely ill.

      Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy packs can be used warm/hot directly on the breast before and after nursing as a compress and in between feedings or pumping sessions for pain relief and inflammation.

    • Why does the warmth of the Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy help milk flow?

      Studies have shown that a warm breast triggers let-down and the release of breastmilk than a cold breast. By heating the Therapearl and wrapping it around the breastpump cushion, the heat will encourage the milk let-down and milk is likely to begin flowing more quickly. (resource: Effect of Warm Breastshields on Breast Milk Pumping, JHL, 27(4) 331-338, Kent et al.)

    • How do I affix the Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy on my pump breast cushion?

      While using the purple cover, you can detach the elastic band and wrap it around the pump cushion and then affix the elastic band. To remove, gently unsnap by placing your fingers alongside the snap and gently pull apart. Do not pull it apart without anchoring first with your fingers.

    • Does the Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy work on all sized pump cushions (manual and electric)?

      Because of the elastic band on the cover, Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy, should be usable with all manual and electric breast pumps.

    • Can I use Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy if my nipples are chafed and sore?

      Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy packs are not designed for usage for soothing sore or chafed nipples because of the hole in the middle. Lansinoh offers its HPA® Lanolin for treatment and soothing of sore and chafed nipples.

      Yes, the product is designed to be heated inside the cover, but always be sure to test the temperature of your pack before applying it to your skin!

      Yes, you can wash and dry the Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy cover with your regular laundry.

    • Can I use Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy and HPA together?

      There is no reason why a mum cannot use HPA® Lanolin and Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast therapy together, however, mum may wish to wipe her Therapearl® off after removing it from her breast as some Lanolin may have gotten on the Therapearl®.

    • Can I use Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy when my baby is nursing (same time)?

      It would be difficult to use Therapearl® 3-in-1 breast therapy while your baby is nursing because it would limit her access to properly latch on. We recommend using the Therapearl® before and after nursing or with your breast pump to aid with let-down.

    • Can I use Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy for other uses when I am done nursing?

      Yes, you may use your Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy as a cold/hot therapy for any other aches/pains. We would not recommend using as a teething ring.

    • How do I use Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy when pumping?

      Therapearl® packs were designed to stay hot or cold and deliver a therapeutically effective temperature for a doctor recommended time of 20 minutes. If you plan to re-apply the product, be sure to take a 20 minute break between uses. Some of our customers have told us they prefer to use the packs chilled in the refrigerator rather than the freezer. Consult with your doctor if you are unsure about what will work best for you.

    • Can I take my Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy straight from the freezer and heat in the microwave?

      Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy can go straight from the freezer and be heated in the microwave, however, be very careful not to overheat your pack.

      Overheating or prolonged application may cause injury, including burns. Heating beyond the suggested time (15 seconds) may also damage or destroy your Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy. It is normal for the Therapearl® to expand a little when heated for the recommended time. If you accidentally heat your Therapearl® beyond the recommended time and see it inflating like a balloon, immediately turn off your microwave, wait for the pack to cool down, and then carefully dispose of your pack. When in doubt or if your pack shows any signs of deforming, dispose of your pack - a pack that has been overheated should never be reused. Therapearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy will explode if heated for an excessive amount of time.

    • What should I do if my microwave doesn’t seem to be heating my pack evenly?

      Even microwaves with the same power often heat differently, and sometimes unevenly. We always recommend that you test your pack temperature before you remove it from the microwave, and if it seems to be unevenly heated, shake it around for a while to let the pearls mix together.

    • Can I fall asleep with my pack on?

      TheraPearl® packs were designed to be therapeutically effective and safe but we do not recommend you fall asleep with a heated or chilled pack applied.

      TheraPearl packs were not designed to be used on open wounds.

    • Do I have to freeze my Therapearl® 3-in 1 Breast Therapy for 2 hours prior to using for cold therapy

      You can leave your pack in the freezer indefinitely, or just chill it for a short period of time. Some of our customers are looking for "cool" rather than very cold so they store their packs in the refrigerator.
