'I experienced very sore nipples due to breastfeeding in the second and third week after my son was born. I had not suffered any problems with my first child, whom I breastfed for 16 months. My child health nurse put me onto Lansinoh. I found it excellent, and gained much relief after only one day of regular use. I wish to commend you on this excellent product.'
'I find that Lansinoh reduces the usual healing time of very damaged nipples. The relief it gives encourages mothers to keep the baby breastfeeding while we sort out the problem together.'

Sore and Damaged Nipples
Natural as breastfeeding is, some women experience difficulties during the first few weeks. The most frequent discomfort is sore nipples which often leads to premature weaning. Sore nipples can be intensely painful. It is essential to find relief while sorting out the cause of the problem so that the breastfeeding relationship can continue. In the past, mothers with sore cracked nipples were encouraged to air dry their nipples and discouraged from using creams on their nipples. It has been proven that wounds in a moist environment heal twice as fast as those left to dry in the air. It is now agreed that sore nipples require a barrier that protects the nipple from surface wetness while creating a moist, scab-free environment for faster healing. Experts recommend the use of ultra pure lanolin for breastfeeding mothers. Another benefit is almost immediate pain relief. If you develop sore nipples, make sure your baby is attaching well while breastfeeding, and use Lansinoh for relief and healing.
Why is Lansinoh so effective ?
Lansinoh was developed jointly by breastfeeding and skin specialists to meet the special needs of breastfeeding mothers.

* Clinically proven to accelerate healing.

How To Use Lansinoh
If you have sore nipples, Lansinoh can provide soothing relief, protection and healing. Apply over the whole area of sore or damaged skin after every feed and as needed. Cracked nipples need a thick layer of Lansinoh for maximum benefit from moist wound healing. You may wish to wear nursing pads to protect your clothes. Some mothers like to spread a drop of hind milk on the nipple and allow it to soak in before applying the Lansinoh. As it is well absorbed and ultra pure, Lansinoh does not need to be removed before breastfeeding. To protect your nipples, you can also apply Lansinoh before showering. If the problem persists, consult a breastfeeding specialist. During pregnancy, Lansinoh may also be used to condition the nipples by applying twice daily to ease dryness and promote healthy, supple skin. Lansinoh is naturally viscous. In colder conditions knead the tube a little, or warm it in your hands for easier dispensing.
