Getting professional help is important

If you are experiencing clogged milk ducts, mastitis or nipple discomfort, please see an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). An IBCLC can help identify the real problem (such as, but not limited to) latch or positioning. They can also provide personalized recommendations and specific instructions on if, when and how to use warm and cold therapy in addition to your nursing regimen. Ailments such as cracked nipples, blebs/nipple blisters, vasospasm/nipple blanching, or clogged milk ducts may lead to more serious issues if not treated properly. An IBCLC is your #1 resource for lactation support and guidance. Find services near you through La Leche League or ILCA.

Benefits of the NuzzleHUG® thermal breast & neck therapy system

The NuzzleHUG can be used to help soothe a variety of issues throughout a mother’s nursing experience; from engorgement (cool therapy) to clogged milk ducts or encouraging milk flow (warm therapy), to aiding mastitis discomfort (warm and cool therapy), and all the way through weaning. The NuzzleHUG can be especially helpful at the critical three-month mark when many nursing women head back to work. By promoting milk flow and easing tension, the NuzzleHUG makes it easier for mom to keep nursing comfortably for as long as she chooses.

Adjustable for just the right fit

For upper body adjustment, button each circle pocket to button-hole setting on the body band, allowing each circle pocket to be centered over nipples. Readjust setting for lower body as needed.

Adjustable for just the right fit

NuzzlePOD®
As an alternative wear method,  you may also wear the inner removable NuzzlePOD® components independently from the NuzzleHUG® outer covers. Our patent pending features allow the NuzzlePOD® breast pad components the ability to attach to the outside of ANY bra, camisole or tank top. This allows the cool to transfer better with less layers of fabric. If treating mastitis or have a need for immediately alternating warm and cool therapy (to encourage good blood circulation to aid in healing), we suggest keeping an extra set of the NuzzlePOD® breast pads on hand, in the freezer. Now sold separately in select stores.

Versatile soothing therapy


Wear around neck or waist to soothe upper body, pelvic or lower back tension.
