Our favouraite soothing nipple
cream; Medela PureLan is just devine. Use
it to sooth over-worked, tired and tender
nipples to great effect.
If you express your breast milk regularly
and feel this is the cause of your sore nipples,
we recomend investigating one of the Larger
size Breastshield options that are available
from Medela. This one simple change can alleviate
all the discomfort chaffing and chore that
expressing with sore nipples can present.
Options over standard are available to go
down one size and up three sizes so no matter
what size your nipples there should be a solution
When suffering nipple chaffing
or experiencing cracked nipples, sore and
flaky skin around the areola and nipple it's
fine to gently massage in a small bead of
PureLan nipple cream a couple times a day
(or more often if you feel it is necessary).
We also recomend letting the air get to your
nipples if and or whenever this is possible.
If the problem continues, worsens, and or
the nipples begin show signs of bleeding other
than from temporarily dry / cracked skin,
always consult with your G.P.
