Breastfeeding is a beautiful experience, but at times, it can also be a very painful experience! Cracked, chaffed and sore nipples aren't a stranger to most breastfeeding Mamas. A good nipple salve is important, but you want to choose one that's healthy for both baby and you!
Purl Lamb's Sucker Relief is just that balm and more! First of all, how cute is that name? I am loving it! This salve is made with the purest, best moisturizing oils out there. This formula is made to do an amazing job with just a tiny bit of product and the best part? It's all completely safe for baby! Here's what this formula is packing:
Aloe Vera is a wonder product. You might have heard of it being used in sunscreens as a natural soother. It cools heated, irritated skin and provides instant relief. It's also a natural anti-depressant, which works almost instantaneously when absorbed into the skin.
Sunflower oil is rich in Vitamin E, which means it helps fight off bad toxins. It deeply moisturizes while keeping a not-super-greasy texture. It smooths rough skin and helps regenerate skin cells.
Shea Butter not only moisturizes the skin, but it also helps protect your natural oils. This is great because it helps replenish any oils that your skin may have lost while nursing! It also amps up your natural collagen production which helps chaffing to heal quicker.
Jojoba oil helps seal in any moisture that the skin already has and helps to create new moisture for what skin is lacking. This oil has a waxy base, similar to beeswax, so it's able to protect the skin well! You'll want this barrier because cracked nipples create a place that's easy for bacteria to come in and cause infection. But no worries! If you do get an infection, this oil helps fight that as well.
This salve is a must-have for any new Mama! It will save a lot of tears and heartache. There is nothing better than having peace of mind knowing that the products you use ae safe for your little one and yourself. Plus, this formula is one of the best I've seen!
