Experienced mums know the first 3 weeks of breast-feeding can be hard on your nipples, and lanolin cream can help you get them through it. Worth every penny, Medela's specially blended lanolin cream moisturizes and provides relief to sore and tender nipples. Natural (lanolin is derived from sheep wool) and 100% safe for mum and baby, with no need to remove before nursing, one tube will last a long time. Medela has made sure it will glide on smoothly and gently with a no-mess application. Preferred by mums over other formulas. You definitely need to have this ready before you start nursing!
