BodyICE Woman Ice & Heat Packs for Breasts
BREAST ICE AND HEAT PACKS FOR SOOTHING COMFORT AND RECOVERY
Throughout life breasts can go through some tender moments, which is why we created BodyICE Woman Breast Packs.
Our breast pads have been designed to fit comfortably inside your bra and around your nipples which can be cracked and tender during breastfeeding. They can be used warm or cold to provide relief from a range of conditions and discomforts including breast engorgement, mastitis and blocked milk ducts. Our breast ice packs can also be used after breast augmentation surgery and for general soreness that can be experienced during menstruation, hormonal changes and puberty.
Our breast pads are made from medical grade PVC and flexible non-toxic gel beads which allows the breast pack to conform around your breasts. The shape of the breast pad is cleverly designed to fit comfortably inside your bra and around your nipples or breast pump, which makes them perfectly suited for breastfeeding.
When frozen the breast ice packs provide cooling, soothing relief from cracked nipples, engorgement, mastitis and surgery incisions. When heated, they can assist the 'let-down' reflex and ease the flow of milk which can also be helpful if you have blocked milk ducts.

2 x gel bead breast packs (for hot or cold use)
2 x washable breast sleeves

BODYICE WOMAN FAQ'S
When should you use hot and when should you use cold?
Our breast and perineal packs can be used either as a heat pack or as an ice pack.
When heated, the breast packs can help increase blood flow and stimulate your milk flow which is especially helpful before breastfeeding, whilst expressing or if you have a blocked milk duct. When frozen, the breast packs provide soothing relief from inflammation associated with breast surgery as well as engorgement.
The perineal pack when heated can help increase blood flow and soften the perineum during the second stage of labour. This helps reduce perineal tearing during childbirth. When frozen, the perineal ice pack provides cooling relief to the perineal area which can be swollen and painful after childbirth. It can also be used to ease discomfort over a c-section scar.
Our breast and perineal packs also come with washable sleeves which are optional to use depending on your skin's sensitivity.
Can the breast packs be used whilst the baby is latched and nursing?
We don’t recommend using the breast packs simultaneously when breastfeeding so that your baby can latch properly without
interference. We do, however, recommend using the breast heat pack just before feeding time to help increase circulation, open your milk ducts and stimulate the let down reflex. Our breast packs are also designed to fit around your breast pump.
Is there an expiration date?
No, there isn't an expiration date on our breast and perineal icepacks. They are designed to be reusable and are made from medical grade PVC so that they don't deteriorate. You should however, store them in an airtight container away from heat and direct sunlight to preserve the integrity of the gel beads.
Can I use the BodyICE Woman Breast Pads for swelling after breast augmentation?
Yes! The breast ice pads are great for controlling pain, swelling and inflammation experienced after breast augmentation or any kind of surgery or trauma that causes pain and inflammation including mastectomy, breast reduction and fat transfer surgery.
What happens if I rupture my pack?
The most common reason for packs rupturing is if they are heated for too long in the microwave. However, if upon purchase you find your pack damaged, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org we will arrange a replacement.
How long should I use a cold/hot compress?
Whether you’re using our packs as hot or cold, we recommend using them for 15-20 mins at a time and follow the heating and cooling instructions on the back of the pack.
Are your packs medical grade and non-toxic?
Yes, our packs are made from medical grade PVC and safe to use directly on your skin. The gel beads inside are non-toxic. In the event of a breakage, keep them away from small children.
Should I use the Breast Packs for mastitis treatment at home?
If you do develop mastitis (inflammation of the breast tissue) you could be experiencing breast pain, swelling, warmth and redness. You can use self massage and a warm breast pack before feeding to help the milk flow and a cold pack after feeding. However, if you develop a fever or flu like symptoms, you may have an infection and you should seek medical care from your doctor.
Can I use the perineal ice pack to treat haemorrhoids?
Yes, our perineal ice pack is long enough to treat the perineum as well as haemorrhoids simultaneously.
