Lansinoh brand Lanolin for breastfeeding mothers is an over the counter nipple care product that could be easily purchased anywhere. It helps to soothe, soften and protect dry, cracked skin. It comes in a 2oz tube. It is also hypoallergenic, completly natural and preservative free.
I received a sample of this product from the lacation nurse at the hospital where my son was born. My nipples were so sore that getting him to latch on was painful. she showed me how to apply and after I got home, I sent my husband to Shopper's Drug Mart to buy me the full size tube.
I applied this to my nipples after every feeding and within a few days I saw and more importantly felt the difference in the skin on my nipples. This product is made of 100% ultrapure medical grade, USP modified Lansinoh brand lanolin which is the world's purest lanolin. There is no need to wash it off because it safe for the baby to ingest.
Thanks to this product, my sore nipples were healed within the first few days of breastfeeding my baby at home.
