Lansinoh Nipple Emollient 15gm Tube

Lansinoh soothes, heals and protects sore nipples. If you develop sore nipples, make sure your baby is attaching well while breastfeeding, and use Lansinoh for relief and healing.

Lansinoh penetrates, restores and maintains the moisture content essential fro healthy, supple skin. When Lansinoh is applied to injured skin tissue, it slows down the evaporation of the skin's natural moisture, providing a moisture barrier that allows he skin to rehydrate from within.

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 Lansinoh for relief and healing.

Breastfeeding is the most natural and loving thing you can do for your new baby. It is not only nature's way of providing nourishment, but also an important first step in building a loving relationship. Health authorities recommend that babies should be fully breastfed for six months, before gradually introducing a mixed diet while continuing to breastfeed. Breastfeeding has many advantages that will help make your baby healthier now and in the future. Breast milk provides precisely the nutrients your baby needs, in exactly the right proportions. Breast milk is more easily digested and breastfed babies don't get constipated. Breast milk helps protect your baby against germs and illnesses. Breast milk helps the development of your baby's body and brain. Food allergies and intolerances are less common and less severe in breastfed babies. Breastfeeding enhances bonding, is a source of great comfort, and the skin-to-skin contact stimulates your baby.

Dosage

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. This is a personal care item and should be used by one individual only.
