    Default Shea Butter for nipple conditioning?

    I am alergic to wool. So I figure I shouldn't use lanolin. Is it ok to use shea butter to condition my nipples before and after pumping, or is there better I should use? I am curious to know what others have used.
    Thanks Janeen

    Janeen,

    I'm not sure on the shea butter, perhaps someone with experience with that will chime in. However, I've heard that you can use olive oil for nipple conditioning. I've never used it myself but have a friend who swears by it.

    HTH!

    If you order it, please come back and post to let us all know how it works! I'm sure there are lots of mommy's out there that would love an alternative to Lanolin.
