At a glance:
A natural nipple balm for breastfeeding relief, the Organic Babies Soothing Nipple Cream is scent-free and suitable for use before, during and after breastfeeding. It soothes and protects sore, cracked nipples, is 100% natural and there is no need to remove the product before breastfeeding. It glides smoothly onto the skin with Calendula to calm soreness and protective Beeswax which is naturally water-repellent. It is vegetarian, lanolin free and suitable for ultra-sensitive skin.
Would you recommend this to other mums?
Emma: I have used many nipple creams and this is by far my favourite. I loved that it is vegetarian, being a lifelong vegetarian and feeling uncomfortable about the use of lanolin products. It has a nicer scent than most. I suffer from psoriasis which recently affected my nipples and I was considering stopping breastfeeding my five-month-old. Since using this product I am much more comfortable and the area has cleared up remarkably. It is easy to use, hygienic, a great consistency and the packaging is neutral and easy to transport.
Katherine: I would recommend this product as it really helps to soothe your nipples which makes the whole experience of breastfeeding in the early days a lot more comfortable and easier. Everyone loves organic products, especially if it is going to touch the mouth of your precious baby so this was a very important plus. The design is both bold and simple and it is a great size tube, not too big or small.
Hannah: This product is great. I've never heard of it before but after trying I'd certainly recommend it. It's small enough to fit in your changing bag but also holds a lot of cream so you're not buying a new tube every week. It's easy to apply and is very comfortable. I don't even notice it once I have put it on. It's hygienic and you can wipe the area where the cream comes out. The flip cap is best as it makes it so much easier to apply when you only have one hand.
How did this product make your life easier?
Aisha: This product has been a life-saver while I started breastfeeding my newborn baby. My baby has a bit of a tongue-tie and this made breastfeeding harder. It meant my breasts were very sore and bleeding. The Organic Babies Soothing nipple balm was great. I could use it after breastfeeding and it would feel really soothing.
Kirsty: The product is absolutely 100% essential! When breastfeeding without it you are likely in for some very painful feeding sessions and will be far more likely to give up and turn to bottle feeding. Breastfeeding isn’t easy and anything to help is a good thing. Having breastfed both my babies it is absolutely invaluable, particularly in the first few weeks while baby and mum learn to breastfeed and latch.
Helen: This cream is a ‘must have’ when breastfeeding your little one. I was very sore when I first started feeding and used the cream to help. After a few days, I was able to breastfeed without being in pain. It’s only a small tube but that is all you need. Being small also makes it easy to take with you everywhere.
Would you choose this product to win?
Elizabeth: I tend to purchase items that are on offer when it comes to cosmetics and medications. However, I would be prepared to pay full price for this item given that the balm is organic and lanolin free. That in itself is a huge tick in its sellability in my eyes. It does exactly what it says on the packaging!
Ernesta: Yes I would. I used several nipple creams with my first baby because they were cheaper but they were not helpful at all. This product is on the more expensive side compared to some but once you try it, you would never go back to cheaper alternatives. It really works and soothes nipples. I used it for my lips when I forgot my lip balm in cold weather.
Rebecca: Before I received this nipple cream I hadn’t heard of it. Now that I’ve had a chance to test it, it would be the nipple cream I would buy.
What changes would you make to this product?
Emma: I would struggle to find anything I would change with this product. Perhaps a bigger tube as I have almost used it all in a matter of weeks. I might make it cheaper because I would have been reluctant to spend that originally but now that I have used it and know how good it is I am converted. Maybe a smaller, cheaper tube as an introduction to the product.
Katherine: Although the design is good it could be a bit more fun. I tend to be drawn to items that are colourful and fun when scanning a shelf in a shop. I feel that perhaps this one wouldn't initially jump out at me as much as other products on the shelf would. As for the product itself - top marks!
Hannah: The main downfall with this product is how difficult the cream is to get out of the tube. Each time I tried to get cream out I had to massage the tube first and even then it was difficult. I think it needs a bigger hole at the end of the tube or an easier way of getting it out. Maybe a tub/pot or even a roll-on stick would be something to consider.
