    Question Nipple Cream Suggestions

    I'm in the hunt for a good nipple cream and there seems to be many varieties out in the market. I've heard about the Lansinoh product, but also info on the all-natural cream like Earth Mama Angel Baby and Mother Love.

    Anyone have any recomendations or suggestions? First-timer here.

    Thanks!!

    I've used Lanisoh and Medela PureLan. Happy with them.

    I use a small dab of neosporin and 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed together. It doesn't need to be washed off before the baby nurses.

    May I ask why you're using these? These should only be used if you're having certain problems.

    Best stuff known to man.

    Why coat the nipple with a stiff gooey barrier like lanolin, when you can apply a soothing ointment? This stuff is remarkable. Think cracked nipples healing up by the next feeding! Wow!

    This is the gift that I give at baby showers now.

    Lansinoh was fab for me. My DD is ten weeks now though and we haven't needed to use anything for about a month.

    I use it because it was suggested by my LC for soreness and damage (my LO had a poor latch from tongue tie). I guess I should have mentioned that in my first post.

    I used Lansinoh and Purelan interchangeably and liked them both. They do stain a little, but if you're wearing nursing pads it doesn't really matter.
    I love my kids. I care for them accordingly. What more can I say?
