Nipple Care

Sore and damaged nipples

As 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 they were 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 a lanolin based cream for relief and healing.
