This is one of my best thing which I buy. First feeding days was hard, nipples was sensitive and red, when I come back home from hospital, I start to use this cream and it helps me a lot! I use it after every feeding, sometimes before feeding, it's great that you don't need to wash it.
Baby has just started to really get her teeth through, which has led to her changing the way that she latches. I have developed painful blisters that are drying out and scabbing. I began using this about two hours ago and the results are already evident. The painful scab was softened instantly and as I have sat with it on, the entire area around my nipple has softened. Whilst it is slightly sticky when first applied, as you work it into the nipple it softens with the heat of your body. A little bit really does go a long way so I recommend warming it between two fingers before applying it to the desired area.
I had so much pain at breast feed first weeks. But this cream saved my days. Absolutely brilliant for moms with extra sensitivity of skin, body. It's quiet thick and need less effort inn massaging in. Absorbing really fast and leaving relief. I loved aroma. Definitely try if in doubt. It's worth the money.
I have tried several nipple creams including Medela Purelan Lanolin cream. I have to say this is not my favourite product. Even though it’s soothing and protective - i found it very hard to apply. Firstly it’s difficult to squeeze out of the tube (even now when it’s 25 degrees outside) and once squeezed I am finding the texture too thick so its quite difficult to spread and takes a while to absorb. Also, it’s honey yellow colour and it stained my clothes.
