Ask any new Mama what it's like breastfeeding in those first two weeks and I think between clenched teeth they'll describe nipple pain or at least sensitivity right up there. It can be totally cringe-worthy but it doesn't need to be with a little bit of care.
The nipple and areola is this incredible part of our anatomy that is designed to stretch (in fact 3x its normal length!) when a baby is learning how to breastfeed. But during the process it can make the nipple and areola tender for many mamas... and for some this really impacts on establishing their breastfeeding.
Unlike any other product on the market, Maternal Instincts by Amberley Nipple Butter contains specific herbs which may carry a therapeutic benefit. Herbs which have been hand picked by a naturopath because they may accelerate wound healing.
It's also noteworthy that this nipple butter DOESN'T contain Lanolin (wool fat) as so often found in similar products. (Lanolin can create a barrier over the nipple, preventing it to "breathe" & hence for some it could create a breeding ground for infection. Secondly, you want to feel comfortable with what your baby is ingesting.... wool fat isn't giving myself the feels!)
THE IMPORTANT STUFF:
All ingredients are safe for ingestion, so there is no need to wash this beautiful product off your nipples prior to breastfeeding.
Not only are your nipples going to loooveeee it, it also works its magic on:
- nappy rash
- dribble rash
- dry skin
- lip balm
- and so much more…
