As natural and wonderful as breastfeeding can be, we all know that it can sometimes come with challenges. Lansinoh® has been supporting breastfeeding mums for over 30 years and their aim is to help you through the challenges, should any arise, so you can continue breastfeeding for as long as you like.
Below we look at some common issues that can crop up and ways of managing them. It is very possible to breastfeed without experiencing any issues, but if you do, it’s good to know help is at hand!
Cracked nipples are one of the most common challenges of breastfeeding and often indicate a problem with the way the baby has latched onto the breast. Speaking to your Lead Maternity Caregiver or other health professional can help you sort out the issue.
In the meantime, Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin will soothe the nipple, and is clinically proven to support the healing process. The ultra-pure lanolin penetrates deeply to restore and maintain the moisture content essential for healthy, supple skin. The lanolin is so pure that there is no need to remove before breastfeeding.
Lansinoh HPA Lanolin is all natural, contains no additives or preservatives and is hypoallergenic. Apply during pregnancy, while breastfeeding and before showering.
Engorgement is when the breasts feel hard, swollen and tender. This can be relieved by emptying your breasts by feeding your baby or expressing your milk and using cold therapy. Cold therapy can help to soothe the pain and swelling associated with engorgement. Similarly, cold therapy can help provide soothing relief for the symptoms of mastitis (which is an inflammation of the breast and sometimes even an infection). If you believe you have mastitis, it is important to see your LMC or doctor straight away.
It can be a bit shocking to new breastfeeders to learn that the recommended way to administer cold therapy used to be a bag of peas or a frozen nappy in the bra! Thankfully, now there is Lansinoh® Thera°Pearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy.
Lansinoh Thera°Pearl reusable gel packs can be used either warm or cold, depending on your needs.
Apply heat therapy to soften the breasts immediately before feeding and to help the milk flow and encourage let-down (the reflex that makes your milk available to the baby).
When used warm with a breast pump, Lansinoh Thera°Pearl can help reduce the time spent expressing or apply cold therapy between feeds to help reduce pain and swelling.
Convenient and mess-free, Lansinoh Thera°Pearl’s unique design conforms to your breast to provide 360° relief and is pliable even when frozen.
