I really suffered with sore nipples in the first few weeks, they were incredible dry cracked and sore. I lathered them in lanolin and it helped so much. Its safe for baby so you don't need to clean it off before feeding. And top tip, keep it even after you don't need it any more, it's great in replacement of vaseline if you have chapped lips!
Takes away the pain for first few months of breastfeeding.

A must have for a new mum. Small bottle so can be carried around in changing bag and applied when necessary. The product doesn't affect breast feeding so no messing around wiping it off before latching baby on. Product does get messy on our hands though so you will need a wipe for your hands anyway. The product goes hard and becomes difficult to squeeze out of the bottle when its been open for a couple of months so lots ends up going to waste although as the product is completely natural it could be used for babies bottom.
Its a life saver for new mums. I used to have cracked nipples after all of my three deliveries and lanolin nipple cream helped me to get out of it. I tried many other brands before lanolin but honestly it didn't seem as good as lansinoh. Lansinoh need not to be washed before feeding which is not the case with many other brands.
I cannot fault this cream in anyway. I had really bad cracked nipples and someone recommended this cream. I went out and brought it straight away - thought it looked good as it had lovely packaging - tried it before and after every feed and my cracked nipples healed up within 2 days. I recommended this cream to a number of different mums to be and they have all brought it and highly rate the cream as well.
Absolutely fantastic! If breastfeeding feeding or breast pumping has caused you cuts and pain then this cream is fab!! Helps you too heal quicker, creates a good barrier between the sore area and babies latch. It’s also good for dry skin, or sore baby bums. I wouldn’t use any other cream, it goes a long way and lasts ages. Worth the price.
The breastfeeding association recommended this cream in the early days. It worked after the first use.
Once I finished the sample I went to buy to more I found it bit expensive for the quantity but bought it anyway as it worked so well
This has been a life saver for me. My baby would pull and tear my nipples causing them to bleed. I used other products which were cheaper and they didnt work half as good. Although this may look expensive it lasts a long time and is so soothing to the nipples and was a life saver
This stuff saved my life when my daughter was cluster feeding and really soothed and softened my nipples. Its really thick and oily cream but safe for babies. Only downside for me is that it costs a lot and a tube cost me £8 from boots but it was worth every penny
I couldn’t survive without this lanolin cream. As someone who suffered with cracked and blistered nipples with both my children, this product was a must have for helping them repair and soothing them after feeding. It’s important to me that it doesn’t have to be removed before feeding. It’s also an excellent lip balm. Whilst it’s a bit expensive, it lasts a really long time as a little goes a long way.
My only small issue with it, is that it can leave grease stains on my bras (soft unpadded bras) when I’m not using breast pads.
Would definitely recommend to other mums and great for adding to gift baskets/nappy cakes.
Oh my breastfeeding experience was a trauma until I got this. I was a first time mommy and my baby was born at 31 weeks. He was kept in hospital for 6 weeks. He was fed through tube for his first 5 weeks. I was pumping breastmilk for him. I was very aggressive in pumping, to the point that I broke my skin and lumps of blood would come out. When the lactation consultant examined me, she recommended this along with the right pumping technique. And it saved me. I was about to give up pumping but when I started using it. I got all better and healed and continued to feed my baby until he was 20 months old. The best part is, it is completely safe for newborns and you really don't need to scrub it off before feeding or expressing every two hours. A must have.
No one on my family had breast fed their children so when I found out I was pregnant with my now five month old daughter and decided I wanted to give it a go I knew I’d have to wing it alone. Thankfully thanks to Facebook groups I heard about this and THANK GOD I did!! I expected the worst with regards to pain at the beginning anyway but ouch, those first 2/3weeks were so sore until we both found our rhythm with what we were doing and having this stuff during that time made all the difference. There was a point where I wasn’t sure if I could carry on and if it wasn’t for this I may have quit! My only criticism is that it’sa little thick and sticky but for what it does I’m glad I put up with it.
Although an expensive product for the amount you get it really is worth its weight in gold.
Choosing to breastfeed can be such a difficult decision when the nipples become so sore but this product really does help.
I advise using it once a day in the build up to the due date if you can as it does help to soften and prepare!!
This should be handed out free to every mum in hospital! I don't know how you could get through those first difficult weeks of breastfeeding without it!! Acts instantly to relieve sore nipples, it doesn't have to be removed before feeding which is handy when your newborn seems to want to feed every half an hour!!! I really can't praise this enough!
This cream was my saviour when feeding during those first few months. My little girl took a few times to get used to it as I would put it on both before and after feeds but afterwards there was no issue whatsoever. It really helped during those early days of getting her latch right, and the dreaded cluster feeds. I had a tube everywhere iIwent, and have already stocked up in preparation for when Baby 2 arrives in April.
Quick working and soothed my Nipples, healed sore bleading nipples & allowed me to continue feeding
Baby wasn't keen on the taste right away

I had a prem baby and struggled with latching which meant i had sore bleeding nipples. This cream meant i could continue feeding as it soothed them quickly. The only downside was that my baby took a while to get used to the taste. The thickness of the cream meant it covered the Nipple properly without running off.
I used this cream with both of my children and managed to get through a cracked nipples at the begging of the feeding. It’s affordable and does the job! Saved my breastfeeding and would highly recommend it.
As a midwife I knew about this nipple
Cream and would recommend to all the women I cared for!
Then I became a breastfeeding mum myself and I can honestly swear by this nipple
Cream! It works wonders if your nipples get sore/cracked and works almost instantly with its relief.
I would highly recommend this product
To any breastfeeding mums!
For the price I expected this to work wonders on my cracked nipples, and although it helped with itching, 3 months in and my nipples never healed dispute going through several tubes of this stuff. It does make a fab lip balm though.
When I fed my first I only found out about this a week into feeding and I was already in a bit of pain however once used you can definitely feel the relief. With my second I used it from the very beginning after every feed best product for breastfeeding!
I would highly recommend this as a must have for breastfeeding mums. I found it soothed my nipples which would sometimes become cracked and sore. Also you can leave it on when breastfeeding, unlike some others that you have to wipe off before feeding, and my baby wouldn't even notice I had put it on when she fed
I loved using this product, its really soothing and even help soothe my itchy dry patches i had on my stomach once the baby was born. Not having to worry about wiping it off when baby was feeding was also great made it handy and helpful.
