Sore nipples are very common during breastfeeding and can often be a result of the uncomfortable positioning of your baby at the breast. Whilst it is vital to address the cause of this, Lansinoh’s HPA® Lanolin is proven to help soothe and protect sore cracked nipples.
Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin is composed of an ultra-purified grade of lanolin which has been refined using a unique process, making it safe for both mum and baby, with no need to remove before breastfeeding. 100% natural without any preservatives or additives, it is naturally hypoallergenic. It is also the only lanolin product to have received the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval.
When applied on sore cracked nipples, it will provide them with a perfect moist wound healing environment. When cracked tissue is re-hydrated, it will heal without the formation of a scab or crust. Apply a pea sized amount of HPA® Lanolin Cream after every feed to ensure your nipples are protected and healing in between feeds.

Available in 2 sizes: 40ml tube and 10ml tube.

This Lansinoh Lanolin nipple cream is an absolute essential for any new Mum. I'd highly recommend it as you don't have to remove for feeds. This really helped me when I first started breastfeeding.
This has been an absolute life saver with my second daughter who's latch was horrific at the beginning. It's really soothing, and I love that it doesn't have to be removed before a feed like you do with some other nipple creams, and these tubes seem to last forever. Not only is it fab to help relieve those poor nipples, but it's wonderful as a lip balm, or on dry skin like elbows and feet!
I remember being given this amazing stuff when I first started breastfeeding Evelyn in hospital, it helped a lot in the first crucial days whilst your nipples are adjusting to having a little baby suckling on them for what seemed like forever. I have never looked back from using it as it really has been a god send through every feed keeping my nipples soothed and protected from being sore and cracked. It is great that you don't have to remove before feeding so therefore provides a safe and effective feeding experience for mother and baby. The cream is 100% natural and pure with no additives and is also hypoallergenic with the British Allergy Foundation. HPA Lanolin is also not just used for nipples, I have used it on nappy rash when I ran out of barrier cream, moisturised my lips and skin and rubbed it in to my cuticles.
I decided to use this nipple cream because the lady who ran my prenatal class would rave about it. She wasn’t wrong! It’s such a nice nipple cream. I bought another version for my baby bag and I really don’t like it. It wasn’t worth saving a pound for the cheaper version. It creates a barrier on the nipple and feels like it’s healing the sore bits too. I express my milk for my baby and have done for quite a while so this cream is a life saver. I put it on after I express however what was nice about it when I did nurse directly was I didn’t need to worry about wiping off. In the first few weeks of feeding this cream was always in reaching distance.
I first bought this about 6 months ago when I had a few issues with cracked and sore nipples from breastfeeding. This solved the issue within 48 hours and I tucked the tube away in a drawer and forgot about it. But then I came across and thought I’d try it on a stubborn patch of eczema that I’d had on my finger for a year. Nothing had got rid of it including steroid cream and it was split and cracked and kept getting infected. I was at my wits end but lansinoh once again came to my rescue and within 48 hours the terrible burning and itching had gone and within a week it had completely healed. This honestly is a miracle!!! And I’m now telling anyone who’ll listen.
Its helpful for bf my 1 year old daughter she is chewing on my nipples:)
An amazing product. Totally saved my cracked and bleeding nipples and enabled me to continue breastfeeding. The midwives know what they're talking about when they recommend this cream!
would consider this and essential if breastfeeding. relieved soreness within hours and also kept it at bay. seems a small tube but actually goes a long way. texture seems strange at first but is fine, but be aware it is quite greasy. but wonderful product.
Absolute ESSENTIAL, must have if bresatfeeding. Does exactly as it says on the tube. Abled me to keep breastfeeding, quick pain relief within a short space of time, no need to wash off before a feed. My best pregnancy buy to date.
Brilliant product, helps soothe cracked/ sore nipples
I absolutely love this product. Used it with both my previous babies and plan to use it again with my next one. This product is definitely an ESSENTIAL when breastfeeding.
Worth every penny! This is my best 'new mummy' purchase! Great pain relief, quick and easy application and no need to remember to clean it off before a feed.
My little girl was born with tongue and lip tie. while feeding she really damaged my nipples. Started using the cream and immediately felt relief. This saved our breastfeeding. Thank you.
I have heard this company is doing very well. Want to try this cream as im a new mum
The best product ever for sore nipples! I had really sore nipples during the first trimester and this cream really worked straight away from first use it made a huge difference.
Fabulous feeding journey saver. Tongue tie added to my pain but lansinoh has helped me through 3 divisions and at 17 months into our journey I still rely on it for a few days at that time of the month 😉
A must for every breast feeding mum, immediate relief from sore nipples. Doesn't need to be washed off between feeds an a little goes a long way.
My baby was born with tongue tight and after 3 days my nipples were sore so I started using this nipple cream.Literally it helped me to keep breastfeeding without need at add any formula!
