Silver nursing cups are used to treat sore and sensitive nipples during breastfeeding. Their anatomical shape covers the nipples and areola. Silver nursing cups are made out of silver. Silver nursing cups differ in their application and their effect from conventional silicone or latex nipple shields.
Silver nursing cups are made out of silver metal. There are silver nursing cups in different levels of silver purity up to a silver content of 99.9% (999 silver).
In Europe, silver nursing cups fall all under the 93/42/EEC Medical Device Directive. They are classified in risk class 1 for medical devices. The EU conformity assessment (Art. 11 Directive 93/42/EEC) is carried out by the manufacturer.
