Breastfeeding Gets ‘Silicon Valley Treatment’ With New Product Offerings

Any mother breastfeeding for the first time or breastfed in the past will tell you that breastfeeding is not for the faint of heart. Learning to help your baby latch on properly can be a trial in pain and misery.

Breastfeeding, especially the first few weeks, can make a mother’s nipples and breasts sore and tender, and each consecutive breastfeeding session can increase that painful feeling.

Thankfully there are products to help even the most novice breastfeeder in the area of comfort. So here’s to you, first-time feeders, some favorites regarding breastfeeding comfort.

Lansinoh’s lanolin nipple cream is safe for babies, which means it doesn’t need to be wiped off before each breastfeeding session, and it works miracles for sore, tender, and even cracked nipples.
