If you are breastfeeding you can apply the Medela Purela 100 Lanolin Nipple Cream straight after a feed. Make sure your hands are clean before expressing a little milk and wiping over your nipple and the areola (the darker skin surrounding your nipple) and allowing them to dry. Then take a pea-sized amount of the lanolin cream and warm and soften it between your fingertips. Gently apply only over your nipple – the large 37 g tube means you can reapply as desired without fear of your supply running out.
When to use the Medela Purelan 100 Lanolin Nipple Cream?
When you breastfeed, your baby’s frequent sucking can deplete the natural oils in your skin. This can lead to your nipples feeling sensitive, dry and sore – they may even start to crack. This is where Medela Purelan 100 Lanolin Cream comes in by helping to replenish these oils. And of course, you don’t have to wait until you’re experiencing sore or cracked nipples before using nipple cream – you can apply it as a gentle moisturiser to help the skin on your breasts feel softer and more supple, before or after breastfeeding. You can even use it to soothe itchy or sensitive nipples during pregnancy.
Is the Medela Purelan 100 Lanolin Nipple Cream safe for baby?
You may be wondering whether you can breastfeed with lanolin cream on – the answer is yes! There’s no need to remove the Medela Purela 100 Lanolin Nipple Cream before your baby latches on as it contains no parabens, artificial additives or preservations, and is fragrance free. You can even use it on your baby’s own skin, if he has any minor dry patches, for example. Lanolin cream can also soothe chapped lips and noses during the cold season!
