This product was recommended to me by a friend and I will be forever grateful to her, it was a big contributing factor to being able to successfully breastfeed my twins. It is really common for Mums to get sore nipples when they first start feeding and this product heals and protects.
It comes in a good quality tube with a flip cap so you can open it one handed if necessary. The product is lanolin which looks and feels a bit like vaseline so is really easy to apply to your nipples. A good tip if your nipples are really sore is to apply the Lansinoh to your breast pads, they then come into contact with it without having to touch them. A little goes a long way so I only ever had to buy the one tube which was good as it's not the cheapest product available.
One of the great things about Lansinoh compared to other creams on the market is that you are able to feed your baby with it on, can't imagine wanting to stop and wipe cream off before starting a feed when baby is crying at you for milk!
Summary: A must have product for breastfeeding Mums
