I used the Lanolin Cream every time Layla nursed and it was great that I could still Breastfeed her without having to remove it, Layla didn't seem to mind that it was there either. After a few days my nipples were back to normal and we continued to Breastfeed like a Pro! We recently hit our 9month Breastfeeding Milestone and I do believe that Lansinoh Lanolin Cream has played a Huge part in our success, it certainly helped us get through those very early days.
Lansinoh Lanolin Breast Cream is a decent option if you are looking to ease some of the nipple dryness and cracking associated with the beginning stages of breastfeeding. While I do think it is...
I had Layla and when Day 3 came around, my nipples were excruciatingly painful, there were cracked, bleeding and even the thought of Breastfeeding Layla filled me with absolute dread. The pain got so unbearable I made Lee take me to get some Lansinoh Lanolin Cream as soon as the shop opened! I gently squeezed a small amount out when I was surprised to find that the cream is more like a balm and is fairly thick. Your instructed to warm it up slightly by rubbing two fingers together so that it softens the Lanolin and then simply smooth it on. I applied a generous amount and the relief was just Instant!!! It was the best feeling in the WORLD, and at that moment in time £9.99 played no part in anything! I would of paid any price just to get that soothing relief I so needed.
Lansinoh Lanolin Breast Cream is a decent option if you are looking to ease some of the nipple dryness and cracking associated with the beginning stages of breastfeeding. While I do think it is a decent and widely available product, there are a few products available online that I actually prefer over lanolin. My main issue is that it is really thick and quite hard. It is really difficult and can be painful to apply to sore nipples. Also, cleaning it up is quite irritating, it does not come off with ease (which has benefits too). I actually prefer the smoother nipples creams derived from olive oil as opposed to lanolin like "Mother Love Nipple Cream". In fact, just pure olive oil can do the trick. However, I would not hesitate purchasing this product in a moment of desperation if you did not prepare for the normal and temporary problems within the first two weeks of breastfeeding. It is beneficial that most major retailers carry it.
