Kia ora! I'm Steph and I live in beautiful Mount Maunganui with my daughter.
Silverette NZ started back in 2017 after a really positive breastfeeding experience with my daughter - which Silverette played a huge role in. I ended up exclusively breastfeeding my daughter for two years. She didn't always have the best latch. She twisted, bit and chomped on my poor things. But despite all of this I can honestly say that breastfeeding was painless once I started the cups properly and I certainly had no cracks or bleeding. If pain did creep in, it was quickly relieved by the cups. I stopped using the cups for a couple of days to see if they were actually working and my nipples started to really hurt.
There was no distributor for Silverette in NZ so I decided to bring them here. I wasn't sure how they would be received by kiwi mums, despite being a big deal overseas. I always said that even if one breastfeeding relationship was saved by making these cups available, or just one mum spared the agony of painful, damaged nipples, I would be stoked. Fast forward a few years and thousands of happy kiwi mums and it's safe to say that this has happened.
Side note - it's just me running this business. I'm the one behind all the social media, admin, orders and handwritten notes. I also work part-time as a nurse plus I'm a busy mum to a young one, so you may get an email late at night or a few days late, please bear with me. And know that when you purchase from us, you are not only supporting a small business but a small family too - so thank you.
From one mum to another – I hope you have a positive breastfeeding journey like I did ♥
With light and kindness..
Steph and little one x
