You won’t need a lot of Motherlove Herbal Nipple Cream ($10/1 oz. tub) to protect or soothe raw breastfeeding nipples. I ruined my expensive nursing bras with a less expensive and stickier nipple cream that felt like and acted like glue!
Made from 100% organic and natural ingredients including marshmallow root, calendula, olive oil, shea butter and beeswax, it doesn’t contain lanolin which is derived from sheeps’ wool like many other salves. However, it does contain beeswax so it’s not vegan.
It is totally safe for the nursing baby to ingest and actually smells quite nice too. I have very sensitive and dry skin and could not have survived nursing for the first few months without this salve.
It also makes a nice gift for a first-time mom who plans on nursing. And you can use it as a diaper cream too!
