How can NaturalEco Nipple
Conditioning Cream help you?
your new baby should be a wonderful and precious experience
- not only for feeding but also for bonding.
For many new mothers, the first few
days of breastfeeding may cause the nipples to become
sensitive and tender. This is quite normal and will
generally resolve on its own within a few days.
However, for some women, the problem
may be worse and sore, cracked and even bleeding nipples can
occur. These difficulties may obviously make breastfeeding
painful and unpleasant and can rob the mother of the joy of
nursing her baby.
The most common cause of painful and
cracked nipples is a problem with positioning and although
this is theoretically preventable, it is very common as few
mothers perfect the art of breastfeeding immediately. Also,
once the damage has occurred, healing may be delayed and
difficult, and breastfeeding painful.
NaturalEco Nipple Conditioning Cream
has been specially formulated for nursing moms' nipples.
This cream will naturally condition the skin, prevent damage
and infection and encourage healing of any cracks in the
nipple, allowing breastfeeding to be a pleasant and joyous
experience once again.
Nipple Conditioning Cream?
Nipple Conditioning Cream is a
wonderfully soothing and healing cream for painful and
cracked nipples. It may be used during the last few weeks of
pregnancy to prepare the nipples for breastfeeding and also
once your baby has been born to continue to provide
protection and ensure nipple health.
Conditioning Cream contains the following proven, natural
ingredients in a pure, aqueous cream base:

'I really love
your Nipple Conditioning Cream! My cracked
nipples had made breastfeeding a horrible and painful
process and I was even beginning to feel resentful about it.
With your wonderful cream and by correcting my technique
with the help of a lactation consultant, my nipples are
feeling a lot better and breastfeeding is once again the joy
it used to be. Thank you again Natural Eco!'
'I was very
pleased to find your Natural Eco website with the wonderful
range of products for pregnancy and new moms! I had been
specifically looking for a natural alternative to lanolin
for my nipples which were suffering the ravages of
breastfeeding my son who has recently acquired a few teeth!
I was repulsed by the idea of using sheep's lanolin- which
is what my doctor recommended- on my skin, especially as
some of this would invariably land up in my son's mouth. I
was thrilled when I found your all-natural Nipple
Conditioning Cream and it has certainly done the
trick!' Doreen P. UK
What else can
Change your baby's nursing position
and speak to a lactation consultant if you are having
difficulties or are unsure of correct positioning. As
incorrect latching and breastfeeding technique can cause
cracked nipples, it is best to resolve positioning problems
as early as possible to prevent further pain and discomfort.
Nurse your baby often, but for a
shorter time. This will provide you with frequent breaks
without depriving your baby of all the milk he/she needs. If
you don't nurse at all for several hours your baby will
become more hungry and will feed more vigorously (and
Avoid using soap, deodorants, powder
or anything but clean water on your nipples.
Try to keep the nipple area dry
in-between feeds. Wet, soggy and cracked nipples will not
heal well and are vulnerable to infection!
Exposing your breasts to natural
sunlight for about 15 - 20 minutes each day will also help
to heal the cracked area and strengthen the skin. However,
avoid the sun during 11 am to 3 pm in hot climates to
prevent sunburn, especially if you are fair skinned!
Try not to give up too easily. If you
are having trouble breastfeeding, first know that you are
not alone. Breastfeeding is a skill to be learnt and doesn't
come naturally to many women. Problems with latching your
baby, technique and milk volume are extremely common.
A breastfeeding consultant will be
able to help you with difficulties of technique and
positioning as well as provide support, advice and
encouragement. The investment into getting it right will be
worth it in terms of the future health of your child as well
as the opportunity to create that special, deep bond with
