When used as a nipple cream, lanolin can help to heal, soothe, and protect sore, cracked nipples. In fact, The Mayo Clinic recommends the use of lanolin to soothe cracked nipples from breastfeeding. It works by mimicking the skin’s natural ability to store moisture, aiding in rehydrating skin. Using 100% natural lanolin is safe for nursing mothers, babies, and children. There’s no synthetic ingredient that moisturises and replenishes the skin quite as well; that’s why families love this gentle, high-quality, New Zealand-made product.

Natural dry nipple ointment

During the first days or few weeks of breastfeeding, many women may experience nipple soreness and dry skin. This can come as a result of the baby attaching to the breast while feeding. While this may improve as time goes on, using lanolin as a natural dry nipple ointment can help to give you fast relief so you can breastfeed more comfortably. Simply apply a small amount to the entire nipple after each feeding. You do not have to wipe it off or remove it before you breastfeed. If your baby is experiencing a nappy rash or other skin problems, lanolin cream can also be used to soothe their skin. Simply ensure the area is clean and completely dry, then apply. You can apply each time you change your baby as needed.

Why use a lanolin nipple cream?

Lanolin works by providing the perfect moist wound healing environment, by applying a protective moisture barrier to the nipple. By retaining moisture already in the skin, lanolin helps to rehydrate from within, returning the skin to a normal and healthy state. By treating nipples in this way, they will heal without forming a crust or eschar, which is better for mum and better for baby. Completely natural, nipple cream made from lanolin is hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types, including those with more sensitive skin. At Merino, we use fine, fractions of lanolin that provide the most moisturising and penetrating benefits for the skin. Explore our extended range of lanolin crèmes and lotions here online.
