Guide Review - Blossumz - Breast Gel Packs

The Blossumz gel packs are a really neat invention. Now you can have one pack that provides you with hot or cold for relief of common issues with breasts. You can use the hot pack to help you assist with latching or with engorgement. It can also be used to help take care of plugged ducts. The cold packs can also be helpful for engorgement, weaning and anytime cold feels good.

The really unique thing about Blossumz that set it apart from other packs, is that you can move the gel around in the pack. This allows you to concentrate the heat or cold application to your comfort. For example, if you don't want the temperature change on your nipple - move the gel.

You can wear the Blossumz pads in your bra or hold it up against your breast manually. It really depends on what you are using it for at the time. The packs go from microwave to freezer, meaning you can choose heat or cold.
