We love the My Expert Midwife No Harm Nipple Balm. A lovely thick consistency, the balm soaks in easily and heals sore skin without needing to spend ages rubbing it in. The smell is beautiful and the pump bottle is handy. The balm is 100% natural so doesn’t need to be wiped off before feeding – a huge plus.

Here’s what our parents thought, read their review here...

How did this product make your life easier?

Miray Aksahin says: "I don't usually review products but I feel like I have to with this one.. I purchased this before the arrival of my second child after a horrendous experience breastfeeding with my first, I didn't hold out much hope if I'm honest, I was cracked in half and bleeding and crying with every feed 6 days in and had all but given up after just a couple of weeks! This time around with No harm nipple balm I've actually managed to get to nearly 2 weeks so far and not a crack or even a sore bit in sight..the balm is a much better consistency than the previous one I used with my first child and generally much nicer to apply / use. Though I'm still early in my BF journey with my second child I feel like I actually have a chance to succeed this time around. The product is a little more than the other popular nipple cream on the market but in my opinion worth the money x10! Thanks 'the expert midwife."

Celia Aldridge says: "The pump bottle of the no harm nipple balm was so handy especially on those days when two hands was not an option. Prevention of dry cracked nipples is very important at the beginning of your breast feeding journey therefore using the balm throughout the day made it easier to a void getting to the point i was sore."

Rajika Ambepitiya says: "No Harm Nipple Balm is a great product. It is designed to soothe and protect sore and cracked nipples when breastfeeding. It has a lovely texture compared to a popular lanolin cream it isn’t sticky and went on easily and smoothly. It’s nice it can be used to help other areas of dry skin and dry lips."

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Jen Cartwright says: "If you are looking for fast and effective relief for sore nipples this is ideal - easy to use, mess free and doesn’t need to be washed off between feeds. This product helped me continue with my breastfeeding journey. As an added bonus, it can also soothe nappy rash and even be used as a lip balm (in emergencies given the higher price)."

Hannah Edwards says: "As a breastfeeding peer support worker I have reccomended this to all my new mums! I used to reccomend the purple lanolin cream but now this! And the companies spritz for bits for after birth! It's small, light, easy to pop in your baby bag and handbag (I actually bought two more) and no matter what temperature it's perfect consistency means it is soothing."

Swati Panesar says: "I love the ease with which the product goes on. It is not sticky and glides on hour skin. It absorbs well and heals sore, bruised and cracked nipples. It can also be used on dry skin. The design of the bottle in stylish and the pump works well in dispensing the product. You can use it with one hand."

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Danielle Smith says: "I am converted to My Expert Midwife nipple balm now, I can’t imagine ever going back to using any other nipple balms I had previously tried. It has really helped me to eliminate sore nipples after those long evening cluster feeds. I am only sorry I hadn't tried it sooner, especially at the start of my breastfeeding journey. I would love to see this product win!"

Claire Sogeler says: "Yes I would. They have identified the main issues with other nipple creams on the market i.e that they are thick and hard to apply and have addressed both of these issues using natural products. Also the issue that other products are difficult to get out of tubes has been addressed in the pump action bottle. The only down side is that it is more expensive compared to other nipple creams, however the age old saying 'you get what you pay for' stands true with this product."

Laura Spiers says: "I've tried 2 other nipple balm with feeding 2 children previously. These other products were both in squeezy tubes that became sticky after a few uses. The pump action of this product makes this cleaner to use. It also means I can dispense it 1 handed, if needed. However, it is more expensive. I think it is worth the extra cost though."

What changes would you make to this product?

Miray Aksahin says: "I don't usually review products but I feel like I have to with this one.. I purchased this before the arrival of my second child after a horrendous experience breastfeeding with my first, I didn't hold out much hope if I'm honest, I was cracked in half and bleeding and crying with every feed 6 days in and had all but given up after just a couple of weeks! This time around with No harm nipple balm I've actually managed to get to nearly 2 weeks so far and not a crack or even a sore bit in sight..the balm is a much better consistency than the previous one I used with my first child and generally much nicer to apply / use.

The product is a little more than the other popular nipple cream on the market but in my opinion worth the money x10! Thanks 'the expert midwife."

Celia Aldridge says: "The product is a little runny and so when my nipples were sore in the beginning of my breastfeeding journey it didn't create the barrier to the air in quite the same way as other products. It worked well as preventive care and for over night dry nipple relief. A thicker consistency might help to give that instant relief especially mid feed."

Rajika Ambepitiya says: "It is very expensive, retailing at £16.50 but actually I do think it’s worth this cost. It really does seem to do what it claims and anything that keeps someone breastfeeding is a big bonus. A little bit of the product seems to go a long way and actually despite the cost I think this would last a while."
