Why Lanolin Cream May Not Be The Best Option

Why Lanolin Cream Isn’t the Best Option

For many years, lanolin cream was the only option for breastfeeding moms to help soothe and moisturize raw and cracked nipples. What most moms don’t know is that lanolin is an animal product whose oil is extracted from the sheared wool of lambs. It has to be soaked in pesticides to remove any parasites. Many women have unknown wool allergies and may find out only after applying lanolin cream to their already sore nipples. Because of these factors, moms and breastfeeding professionals started looking for other nipple cream to replace lanolin creams and balms.
