Rachel's Remedy - English Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS AND CARE

Rachel’s Remedy provides wearable moist heat and cooling relief for your breastfeeding conditions so that you can treat your pain and symptoms while on the go. We want you to feel better so please carefully read the instructions and warnings below to avoid injury.

For Moist Heat Relief:

1. Remove the flaxseed filled pillow from the pouch. The waterproof pouch that holds the flaxseed pillow is not microwavable. DO NOT MICROWAVE WATERPROOF POUCH.Place the flaxseed filled pillow in the microwave on the lowest possible setting for 20 seconds. If it is not to your desired heat, put it back in the microwave for another 5-10 seconds, and another, until you obtain the desired heat. ALL MICROWAVES VARY AND OVERHEATING MAY CAUSE BURNS. THE PILLOW SHOULD BE WARM BUT NEVER HOT TO THE TOUCH.

2. Perform the pinch test before each use: Pinch the flaxseed pillow all over with your fingertips to make sure it is warm, but not too hot. The skin on your breast is more sensitive to heat than the skin on your hands, so if it’s too hot for your fingers, it’s much too hot for your breast. The pinch test will help you ensure there are no hots spots in the pillow before inserting it into the pouch and placing it against your skin.

3. Remove and moisten the cotton layer with warm water and fasten it back to the pouch. Do the pinch test again to make sure it is warm but not too hot before placing against your skin. If it is warm to the desired temperature, insert Rachel’s Remedy in your bra, or hold in place wherever you are having pain or discomfort. Repeat as needed.

For Non-Moist Heat Relief:

Follow the directions in #1 & #2 above, and insert in your bra or hold in place wherever heat is desired. Always perform the pinch test before each use.

For cool relief:

Place the flaxseed filled pillow in the freezer until desired temperature is achieved and apply as needed.
