With breastfeeding comes various products that can help make your breastfeeding journey that little bit easier. Now I'm already a big fan of and already use Lansinoh products so couldn't say no when they asked if I would like to receive some of their products to try out. Anything to save pennies and help build awareness of helpful products.
Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin is an ultra purified grade of lanolin, refined using a unique process to make it the world’s safest, purest lanolin. Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin has been specially developed to help soothe and protect sore, cracked nipples in breastfeeding mothers.
Sore nipples can often be a result of uncomfortable positioning of your baby at the breast. It is therefore important to address the cause (with the help of a health professional if necessary) – and in the meantime Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin can help to soothe and protect your nipples.
Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin is the safest, purest nipple cream and completely hypoallergenic. Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin is the only lanolin product to have received the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval.

I first heard of Lansinoh Lanolin not long after I had Oli and my nipples were incredibly sore thanks to the endless attempts at breastfeeding him. Someone suggested to me trying out this nipple cream called Lansinoh, now I have to admit at first I was little 'eek' at the price. Yeah that was of course before I tried it. It was easy to apply and didn't create any stinging pain, just helped to soothe them. That soothing feeling is so fresh in my head as again this time around with my successful breastfeeding journey I used Lansinoh Lanolin for that soreness, I got sore this time around because Dylan wasn't feeding right thanks to his tongue tie. I am incredibly thankful to my tube of Lanolin for helping me get through that.

Was unsure at first as I didn't want to use it at the same time as feeding him but both the packet and a midwife reassured me that the Lanolin is non toxic and is perfectly safe because of it's purity. It has so many more uses other then being used as a nipple cream, I had so much leftover the first time around that I was going to give it away to a friend still breastfeeding but then she told me it makes a great lipbalm and she was right, making it my new essential handbag item. It can also soothe itchy stretch marks which I discovered for myself and dry skin in general as well as using it on babies nappy rash.

Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pads have an ultra-thin but super-absorbent contour for a natural fit that won't show under clothing. The soft, stay-dry lining draws milk away from the skin and into the core of the pad where it is absorbed by a special polymer to prevent leakage. Featuring two non-slip adhesive tapes so that the pad stays in place, this is the only polymer style pad that keeps its shape when wet. The pads are hygienically wrapped for cleanliness and convenience - perfect to slip into your bag when out and about.

Product Features:

  • Discreet, naturally contoured shape
  • Individually wrapped and disposable for hygiene
  • Fits all breast sizes
  • One-way moisture technology ensures that you stay dry day or night
  • 2 non-slip adhesive tapes keep each pad in place
  • Breathable waterproof outer layer keeps your clothing dry
  • Soft and breathable inner layer for maximum comfort
  • Super-absorbent polymer and stay-dry lining draws and locks milk into the core of the pad

If there's one breastfeeding product that I couldn't live without then it would be my Lansinoh nursing pads! I say that because they have been the best thing at sorting out those embarrassing leaks. I remember my first leak was not long before Dylan was born and I woke up because I could feel this leakage, I've never ripped open a box as quickly as I open my box of pads. I'm glad these were the brand I choose to buy when I was pregnant in preparation as I've not had a single issues with them since day 1. They are comfortable and rather secure at staying in place, they don't scrunch up and stay in the original condition that they come in. I feel like I can be a judge when it comes to nursing pads as I've tried a few different brands now, it seems that my boots are always out of stock - they must be popular.

I've actually got a different brand on now and I would give my right arm to be wearing some Lansinoh pads. These have both scrunched up on me and the stickiness which is rubbish normally has decided to come off the pad and stick to my boob. Yeah, lucky I noticed as I would of had a baby stuck to my boob. Not nice for him or me. After reading my friends Emma's Whatever Breasts post yesterday, the Lansinoh Nursing Pads definitely seem to be the best ones around.

Lansinoh products are available to buy online (just search google!) and in pretty much any stores which sell baby stuff, like Mothercare, and Boots. You can find Lansinoh both online and on .
