Love the fact that you don't have to wipe it off before breastfeeding! Also love the tube idea rather than a pot, keeps nasty germs at bay.
- Buy one before you go into labour
This stuff is amazing! Not only on nasty cracked, blistered and bleeding nipples but also a fantastic lip balm, and I'm not kidding! No sting, smell or taste, your baby can go straight onto your breast without you having to wipe it off. And you only need the tiniest amount so one small tube will last you ages! I had one at home, one in the nappy bag and one in the handbag.
I found id finish feeding and put this on then you babys still doing all the signs of being hungry and you dont have to wipe it off! Great!!!
- Hydrogel pads better
I found the purelan product was okay. When my nipples were really wrecked from a newborn learning to latch, hydrogel pads (Franny sells these too) were much better for helping my nipples heal. This product is super thick, and I found it stained my nice breastmates breastpads, but it does help and very convenient that you don't have to clean your nipples before feeding. But if you are ripped and bleeding, definitely consider the hydrogel pads!! (and put them in the fridge, cold pads on sore nipples is bliss)
- Excellent if kept warm
This lanolin cream is wonderful on my nipples which have been sore from a lot of pumping to increase milk supply! Recommend keeping it in a warm spot so it's easy to squeeze out though as on cold winter nights in our bedroom its been super hard to get it out and to make it smooth enough to apply! I agree with Kellie re the hydrogel pads which I've kept in the fridge. They have been a God send!
- Product also good for cracked lips
I found Medela purelan 100 also good for my cracked lips. I am on skin treatment which leaves my lips peeling and all other lip balms do not help. Medela purelan came to rescue.
