How can NaturalEco Nipple Conditioning Cream
Nursing your new baby should be a wonderful and precious experience - not only for feeding but also for bonding.
For many new mothers, the first few days of breastfeeding may cause the nipples to become sensitive and tender. This is quite normal and will generally resolve on its own within a few days.
However, for some women, the problem may be worse and sore, cracked and even bleeding nipples can occur. These difficulties may obviously make breastfeeding painful and unpleasant and can rob the mother of the joy of nursing her baby.
The most common cause of painful and cracked nipples is a problem with positioning and although this is theoretically preventable, it is very common as few mothers perfect the art of breastfeeding immediately. Also, once the damage has occurred, healing may be delayed and difficult, and breastfeeding painful.
NaturalEco Nipple Conditioning Cream has been specially formulated for nursing moms' nipples. This cream will naturally condition the skin, prevent damage and infection and encourage healing of any cracks in the nipple, allowing breastfeeding to be a pleasant and joyous experience once again.
What is Nipple Conditioning Cream?
Nipple Conditioning Cream is a wonderfully soothing and healing cream for painful and cracked nipples. It may be used during the last few weeks of pregnancy to prepare the nipples for breastfeeding and also once your baby has been born to continue to provide protection and ensure nipple health.
Nipple Conditioning Cream contains the following proven, natural ingredients in a pure, aqueous cream base:
Calc Flour. is a biochemic tissue salt particularly useful for the healing of chapped and cracked skin. Used for nipples, hands and feet and any area of skin exposed to cold or callus-causing friction.
Vitamin E Oil is widely used to promote skin healing, protect cells from free-radical damage and reduce discomfort and itchiness. Many people use Vitamin E products topically to ensure optimal skin health.
Silica is another biochemic tissue salt which is essential in the maintenance of healthy and strong skin and is the main component in all connective body tissues. Silica also stimulates cell metabolism and cell formation, improving strength and resilience of tissue.
Calendula officinalis (Marigold) is an herbal ingredient used to treat skin problems and promote healing of wounds. It is an excellent anti-inflammatory and prevents infection with its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. Marigold has been shown to assist the regeneration of damaged skin tissue.
Chamomile soothes skin rashes, irritation and burns. This herb will reduce pain, discomfort, itching and inflammation. Chamomile also speeds up the healing process and prevents bacterial infection.
How do I use Nipple Conditioning Cream?
Before birth: Gently massage into the nipple and surrounding area two to three times daily during last 2 - 3 weeks of pregnancy.
After birth: After breastfeeding, wipe the nipple area with a clean damp cloth. Gently massage NaturalEco Organic's Nipple Conditioning Cream into the nipple and surrounding area. Rinse or wipe clean with a clean warm cloth before the next feed.
'I really love your Nipple Conditioning Cream! My cracked nipples had made breastfeeding a horrible and painful process and I was even beginning to feel resentful about it. With your wonderful cream and by correcting my technique with the help of a lactation consultant, my nipples are feeling a lot better and breastfeeding is once again the joy it used to be. Thank you again Natural Eco!' Mary-Ann, IL
'I was very pleased to find your Natural Eco website with the wonderful range of products for pregnancy and new moms! I had been specifically looking for a natural alternative to lanolin for my nipples which were suffering the ravages of breastfeeding my son who has recently acquired a few teeth! I was repulsed by the idea of using sheep's lanolin- which is what my doctor recommended- on my skin, especially as some of this would invariably land up in my son's mouth. I was thrilled when I found your all-natural Nipple Conditioning Cream and it has certainly done the trick!' Doreen P. UK
What else can help?
Change your baby's nursing position and speak to a lactation consultant if you are having difficulties or are unsure of correct positioning. As incorrect latching and breastfeeding technique can cause cracked nipples, it is best to resolve positioning problems as early as possible to prevent further pain and discomfort.
Nurse your baby often, but for a shorter time. This will provide you with frequent breaks without depriving your baby of all the milk he/she needs. If you don't nurse at all for several hours your baby will become more hungry and will feed more vigorously (and painfully).
Avoid using soap, deodorants, powder or anything but clean water on your nipples.
Try to keep the nipple area dry in-between feeds. Wet, soggy and cracked nipples will not heal well and are vulnerable to infection!
Exposing your breasts to natural sunlight for about 15 - 20 minutes each day will also help to heal the cracked area and strengthen the skin. However, avoid the sun during 11 am to 3 pm in hot climates to prevent sunburn, especially if you are fair skinned!
Try not to give up too easily. If you are having trouble breastfeeding, first know that you are not alone. Breastfeeding is a skill to be learnt and doesn't come naturally to many women. Problems with latching your baby, technique and milk volume are extremely common.
A breastfeeding consultant will be able to help you with difficulties of technique and positioning as well as provide support, advice and encouragement. The investment into getting it right will be worth it in terms of the future health of your child as well as the opportunity to create that special, deep bond with your baby.
