Do the breast and perineal ice packs double as heat packs?
Yes. Our breast and perineal ice packs can both be used as heat packs. To use as cold packs, cool in your freezer. To use as warm packs, you can heat in your microwave or warm in hot water. DO NOT overheat your breast and perineal ice and heat packs. We recommend initially heating each pack for no longer than 10 seconds in the microwave, and if not warm enough, heat each pack for an additional 5 seconds, until warm. Do not heat each pack for over 25 seconds in total. For hygiene reasons we recommend washing your breast and perineal ice and heat packs after each use in warm soapy water followed by a rinse with cold water.
Do your packs come with covers?
Yes. Our breast packs come with fabric protective covers to protect the skin. We recommend using a tissue for our perineal packs for good hygiene. For hygiene reasons we recommend washing your breast and perineal ice and heat packs after each use in warm soapy water followed by a rinse with cold water.
Why are some of the breast pack gels beads uneven on arrival in mail?
Before sending off each pack in the mail, we carefully inspect each item, and squeeze the gel beads throughout the breast packs as evenly as possible. During your packs journey to you, the gel beads may spread a little unevenly. However, prior to heating/cooling your packs, you can squeeze your breast packs to evenly spread the gel beads throughout.
How long after I place my order can I expect my breast and perineal ice and heat packs to arrive in the mail?
We endeavour to post your order in the mail within 1-2 business days of you placing your order. We currently ship with Australia Post, using their Parcel Post, registered mail service. Once your order is lodged at Australia Post, it usually takes between 2-6 business days to arrive at your door. However, if you need your breast and perineal ice and heat packs sooner rather than later, there in an option at the checkout to select express postage.
