    Dry nipples

    I'm only 16 weeks pregnant and my nipples are getting very dry and irritated. Can any recommend a good cream or remedy for this condition? Thanks!

    Hi there, I had the same problem and have been using Medela PureLan 100 which can be brought from Bumps to Babes, Mothercare and Eugene Group. I think they have 2 sizes - HKD58 and HKD108.

    try lansinoh. it's natural food grade (provided that you're not allergi to lanolin). after u give birth you can use it after each feed to prevent cracked nipples from feeding. you don't have to wip off lansinoh before feeding, so it's very convenient.

    you can only get lansinoh from bumps to babes.

    I used Apivita products which is available from Citysuper and also Seibu, they have a special nipple cream for breastfeeding women which I'm sure you can use now. The products are from Greece and made mostly with Olive oil. It's pretty natual and they also do stretch mark cream that I used throughout my pregnancy.
