Being baby’s 24/7 on-demand food source is a big job. And when you’re experiencing sore, cracked nipples from breastfeeding, you need quick relief that’s 100 percent safe for baby. The mom go-to: Lansinoh HPA Lanolin.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • No preservatives or additives here; this ointment is made from refined lanolin, a fatty substance naturally found in sheep’s wool
  • Completely baby-safe, you don’t need to wipe yourself off before nursing
  • A pea-sized amount is all you need to apply after each time you breastfeed to keep skin moisturized

SUMMARY

Simple, effective and totally natural. When it comes to treating such a sensitive area, what else could you ask for?

Price: $10
