Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter review
What is Nipple care butter?
How to heal cracked nipples?
Today we talk about a breastfeeding essential. Any mother who has breastfed for even a short amount of time can perhaps recall the agony of cracked nipples.
Reasons of cracked or bleeding nipples
Most of the times cracked or bleeding nipples are due to improper latching by the baby and it should ideally correct itself with proper guidance. But a good nipple care cream is a must to heal the sore nipples.
Enzymes from baby’s saliva, water or even soap residue can remove moisture from sensitive nipple skin, thus making it sore and cracked.
If you use a breast pump and are using it incorrectly, that may cause sore and cracked nipples too.
What to do in case of cracked nipples?
A good nipple care cream can be a boon, if you have cracked or sore nipples. It is best to use a herbal formulation since that’s where your baby is going to get his/her feed from. So, I was quite pleased to see the nipple care butter from Himalaya FOR MOMS range.
