Lansinoh lanolin is a definite must-have for any new mother who is planning on breastfeeding her baby. Breastfeeding is difficult at the beginning, and is sometimes made even more frustrating by the soreness and pain that comes along with starting to nurse. Applying Lansinoh lanolin after a nursing sessions is soothing and helps ease the discomfort. After the nipple toughens up a little, it is no longer necessary to use it, but it is invaluable during those first few weeks.
This lotion is very thick, but easy to apply. It is tasteless and harmless to baby. I also never found it to leave stains on bras or other clothing it came into contact with.
I highly recommend this as a gift for new mothers that plan on nursing their baby.
