No one said motherhood was a walk in the park, but dealing with cracked, blistered nipples? Seriously, ouch. When nursing and pumping starts to take a toll, thousands of moms have found salvation in this "miracle balm" (their words). It's made of all-natural ingredients—which is why you'll likely find little pearl-like bits in your balm. Plant butters solidify when cold, but those flecks quickly melt in your fingers for a smooth application.
