The details:Nipple Creams for Breastfeeding Mamas
For mothers who have sore, bleeding or cracked nipples, it may feel hopeless: if you allow your nipples to heal, your milk supply may dry up; however, if you continue feeding, you risk re-traumatizing the area all over again. For moms who feel like sobbing through feeding sessions, reach for a sore nipple cream to ease the pain!
One of the leading reasons moms stop breastfeeding early is discomfort caused by nursing. Whether it’s from a poor latch or a teething baby gumming on your poor nipples, no Mama should have to suffer through painful feedings.
The most effective nipple butter will be designed for ease and quick relief. Since you were oh-so-careful with choosing a toxin-free tummy butter during pregnancy (and only sip on all-natural breastfeeding teas!), you know anything going directly into your baby’s mouth should be 100% organic and safe for consumption.
Thankfully, natural nipple creams can be extremely effective. Look for herbal infusions, like plantain and calendula, that will promote quick healing and reduce swelling. Apply between feedings and allow to dry. For particularly sore nips, use your nipple cream with the use of a nipple shield, and consider wearing loose fitting shirts (or going au naturel at home) to allow minimal disruption while the tissue heals.
