How did this product make your life easier?

Catherine: This product makes life more comfortable, and as a breast feeding mummy that is very important for mummy and baby! I think that it was easy to use, however the consistency of this product does mean that a hand wash was essential following application - this wastes time (although in current situation an extra handwash is always good!

Laura: This product is a godsend. It has really helped me to persevere through the pain of cracked nipples in the first few days and weeks of breastfeeding. I think without this product I would certainly have stopped my breastfeeding journey much earlier. It is really easy to apply and instantly calms sore nipples.

Nicola: During the early days of breastfeeding I really struggled with cracked sore nipples. However after each feed I ensured I applied the lansinoh nipple cream and rapidly noticed a difference in the healing. This gave me the confidence to preserve with breastfeeding and after 10 days I haven’t had any problems since enabling me to continue to solely breastfeed.

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Roshni: This was the only cream which allowed me to actually heal and felt like a life saver. I wouldn’t buy or even try another product. It made my life easier as I didn’t spend so much time in pain and felt there was something which could help, but also not hinder as and when baby needed a feed, as I didn’t need to take it off.

Alexandra: I would definitely recommend this product to a fellow mum. It does what it is supposed to do and works quickly. This product comes in a suitable sized container which is easy to pop in a pocket or baby bag. I like that it doesn’t have to be removed before feeding which makes it a very convenient treatment for cracked/sore nipples. This product has similar price to other products on the market but actually works! (Unlike some others which I have tried!)

Abigail: I’d recommend this product to a friend or mum because although there are lots of other nipple creams on the market this cream remains reasonably priced, you get a good amount of product in a tube, there are no questionable ingredients in the cream and it is very easy to purchase this cream either in store or online.

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

Iysha: I didn’t even consider trying any other similar products. I was told by my friends that this was the best nipple cream on the market, I tried it and I found it to be really effective, reasonably priced and the tube goes a really long way. I was also told that it’s great because you don’t have to wash it off your nipples before your baby feeds and I found this to be a really useful feature. So I can’t comment on how this compares to other similar products but I can say that I used it because it had fantastic reviews from all my friends and I was equally as impressed with it when I tried it too.

Catherine: I would not choose this product over all others, although it would be one of two I would consider. This product is great value for money and has a great efficacy. I trust the brand, and associate it particularly with breastfeeding, which builds confidence in the product – I think that would be the same for many other mummies. I think it is a great product, well designed and packaged.

Laura: I would definitely choose this product above all others on the market. It is a quality product, really thick texture that instantly calms and soothes sore, cracked nipples. It has no smell/taste, is safe for baby and baby doesn't seem to be out off feeding by it. As an added bonus it is also great for chapped lips!

What changes would you make to this product?

Nicola: From what I know about this product and how beneficial I have found it I cannot think of anything I would change about this lansinoh nipple cream. A lot of details have been considered already through the design and size of the lansinoh nipple cream and feel it really is a great product that I would recommend to anyone.

Roshni: It is very expensive and so for some parents they may not be able to afford it which is sad as being able to breastfeed is something a lot want to do but struggle with, and society and products should be helping. Expense is a huge issue and it is sad that some people will not be able to buy this simply due to cost.

Alexandra: I have really enjoyed using this product and find it easy to use. I don’t have any specific concerns or issues. This is a good size and shape, easy to fit in a pocket. The only thing I could think which might be helpful is a pump rather than squeezy bottle. when the weather is colder the contents become firmer and harder to get out as easily.
