Nursing Aids-Nipple Creams
Nursing a new baby can be a magical experience. Chamomile Butter Nursing Nipple Care is a soft, lanolin-free, almost purely organic balm that spreads smoothly onto skin, and helps to prevent, sooth and protect sore, inflammed or cracked nipples and skin. It is made from edible butters, oils and herbs that are safe for both baby and mama, and can be very helpful during the first stage of breast feeding.
Suggested Use: Apply to irritated, sore or cracked nipples or skin. Use immediately after nursing baby, and as often as desired. Before nursing baby, you may choose to wipe off excessive amounts with a Super Softee Baby Wipe or soft cloth.
When engorged, you may try applying cold compresses, or a bag of frozen peas and cabbage leaves to each breast after nursing to help inflammation, and a warm compress to each breast just before nursing to help milk let down.
Ingredients: Certified organic chamomile and calendula, coconut oil, mango butter, cocoa butter, grapeseed oil, jojoba, & vitamin E
