As natural and wonderful as breastfeeding can be, we all know that it can sometimes come with challenges. Below we look Lansinoh and how it can support you through breastfeeding.
Lansinoh® HPA® LANOLIN
Sore and cracked nipples are one of the most common challenges of breastfeeding.
Lansinoh HPA Lanolin will sooth the nipple and is clinically proven to support the healing process. The ultra-pure lanolin penetrates deeply to restore and maintain the moisture content essential for healthy, supple skin. The lanolin is so pure that there is no need to remove before breastfeeding and it can also be applied before showering to protect nipples. Lansinoh HPA Lanolin is all natural, contains no additives or preservatives and is hypoallergenic.
Lansinoh® THERA°PEARL® 3-in-1 BREAST THERAPY
Say goodbye to frozen peas in the bra! Now we have Lansinoh Thera°Pearl 3-in-1 Breast Therapy reusable packs which can be used either warm or cold, depending on your needs.
Engorgement is when the breasts feel hard, swollen and tender. This can be relieved by emptying your breasts by feeding your baby or expressing your milk and using cold therapy. Cold therapy can help soothe the pain and swelling. Similarly, cold therapy can help provide soothing relief for the symptoms of mastitis. If you believe you have mastitis, it is important to see your doctor straight away.
Lansinoh Thera°Pearl can also be used warm to soften the breast before feeding to encourage let-down (the reflex that makes your milk available to the baby). Use heat therapy when expressing to help you let-down faster to reduce the total time spent expressing.
Lansinoh® ULTRA THIN, STAY DRY NURSING PADS
Leaking can occur anytime during breastfeeding and while normal, it can be uncomfortable. To maintain proper skin health during feeding, mums need to keep breasts free from excessive moisture. Lansinoh® ULTRA THIN, STAY DRY NURSING PADS provides super absorbent technology which holds 20x its weight in moisture. BLUE LOCK™ Core quickly captures and disperses moisture evenly, while the unique waterproof layer keeps clothing protected to help you stay dry and discreet. Each pad stays securely in place with two non-slip adhesive tapes, is individually wrapped for hygiene and convenience, fits all breast sizes and is super soft for maximum comfort.
Lansinoh® BREASTMILK STORAGE BAGS
Expressed milk can be stored in Lansinoh® durable and leak-proof BREASTMILK STORAGE BAGS. The top of the bag forms a handy, easy pour spout to minimise the chance of spills, and feature a convenient write on tab to allow you to note the date of expression.
Lansinoh® BREASTMILK STORAGE BAGS come pre-sterilised and are made from food safe polyethylene and are BPA and BPS free.
Lansinoh is available in leading pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide including Chemist Warehouse, Life Pharmacies, New World and Countdown.
