The Bottom Line

This "lotion" is great for healing sore nipples or nipples that are cracked from breastfeeding. It can also be used to soften or moisten nipples prior to breastfeeding.

  • Great for moist wound healing on the breast.
  • Doesn't require that you wash it off before breastfeeding.


  • Expensive.


  • Moist wound healer for nipples.
  • Can be used without washing in between feedings.
  • Very pure form of lanolin.
  • Approved by La Leche League International.
  • Very thick product that is not always easy to get on, warming it between your hands can help.

Guide Review - Lansinoh

Lansinoh is made from lanolin in a very pure and safe form. The good news is, that unlike other treatments for sore nipples, Lansinoh does not need to be washed off prior to feeding your baby. You only need a small amount of the Lansinoh to cover the entire nipple area, so the tube will last you for a very long time.

You can use Lansinoh as often as you like. Many moms choose to use it after every feeding. Lansinoh helps the breast to heal, though you may still need to address any breastfeeding problems like a poor latch.

Lansinoh cream, Member westn2

The stuff is amazing!!!! It is expensive but you will never go through the whole tube. I ended up using the remainder as a cracked heel remedy. I would slather it on the dry areas and wear a pair of socks to bed. The company also has breast pads as part of their lineup. They were the cadillac, I would use them when going out and overnight and use a cheaper brand for around the house. They were so incredibly absorbant (I was a jersey cow)! They were the most expensive but would sometimes go on sale so I would stock up.
