Breastfeeding with my son was a complete nightmare. My nipples were sore, cracked and the cream that came with my pump made it unbearable to put on. I was able to pump for a month before I quit breastfeeding cause even pumping became difficult. I had my daughter 2 weeks ago and was unsure if I wanted to go through that again. The hospital gave me a small sample of Medela and my nipples have yet to crack, become sore and I’ve been able to breastfeed with no problem. The sample lasted 3 days and it absorbs into the skin Fast, is silky and doesn’t need a lot to put on. I went to target this past weekend and picked this up cause the other brand I had was too thick and applying it was a pain. Highly recommend!

This stuff is amazing. I tried this and the Lansinoh cream, the other is too thick and painful to put on when you're nipples are sore. This one is silkier and thinner and really does help a ton. It feels great. Will repurchase til I'm done breastfeeding.

I had used a sample of this at the hospital after birth and it really had me shook. I feel like this one is way better then any other one. Plus a little goes a long way with this! The sample lasted me three days. The other ones would make my nipples too oily and this one literally feels like nothing is there. I’m definitely buying this one for my next baby!

The best nipple cream I have found this far! I even went as far as to use a $20 cream that ended up being terrible! I absolutely love this product! I only have to use it once a day (before bed) unlike all the other ones I've tried which I had to use after every feeding to get any relief!

This stuff really works! Not only does it feel nice as soon as you apply it, it’s easy to use & works right away. I didn’t know about this product at first but the nurse had given me a sample at the hospital before I left & I just had to get more. Very affordable & worth the money

This smells bad, it's extremely gooey/messy, and personally didn't work. I used this after every feeding/pump session and I still had dry, cracked, sore nipples. I went to the ER with mastitis and they said this could've caused it.

This is a lifesaver for breastfeeding mother's and definitely worth the price given the fact you need less than a dime size for application. Its natural and safe for baby to consume

I use this stuff for other purposes then intended! I nursed for 14 months and loved this! I then learned that I could use this as a cream for red diaper marks on my toddler and as a lip balm! It not only heals your nipples but heals other areas of sensitive skin areas like cracked lips & red diaper marks! I'm not using the same bottle to put on my lips by the way lol.... the hospital gave me small travel sizes that I use on my lips and it's been incomparable to any lip balm! I will repurchase this as a lip product because it has healed my lips so much!

I recommend every mom to have this if they are breastfeeding! ( they do hand them out in the hospital as well. ) Without any knowledge that a product like this existed I would have probably stopped breastfeeding because of the pain it started causing me in the first week. It goes on real smoothly. After a week of using this It helped me so much with breastfeeding and I didn't have much problems afterwards. It is safe for baby if there is still some left on the nipple. I highly recommend this to first time moms trying to breastfeed.

I am a first time mom and I can honestly say this stuff was a life saver ! I was so close on giving up breastfeeding because my nipples were just so sore, cracked, and just in so much pain. But I used this product and it definitely healed them up and gave them strength to give breastfeeding another attempt. It doesnt feel too sticky or anything. This stuff is also cool and soothing for any burning, and a little goes a long way, seriously. For any first time moms, this is a must!

How does this compare to the lansinoh brand? I really like the lansinoh brand but I do find that it starts to get super sticky and difficult to squeeze out?
