Buying Green: Lanolin for Breastfeeding

If you're nursing, especially at the beginning, you may have problems with dry, cracked, sore nipples. My first child didn't latch properly and nursed very frequently for only a few minutes at a time, which made my nipples very raw. Lanolin was a lifesaver. And it's safe for babies, too, so you don't have to wash your chest before nursing. Ameda ComfortLan (available at Babies R Us, Amazon, and on the Ameda website) is made without fragrance, preservatives, or additives. Simply apply a thin layer after nursing to help nourish and protect your skin.
