Lansinoh Products Lansinoh, www.lansinoh.com $4.79 to $9.99
For most mothers who have breastfed, Lansinoh Brand Lanolin ($9.99) has been a lifesaver for sore or cracked nipples. I love the product—you need only a tiny amount and it doesn’t need to be washed off before feeding.
Lansinoh has branched out into other products and having just had a baby made me a perfect candidate to test them out:
The washable nursing pads ($6.99 for four) are durable and can be machine washed with a white load.
The disposable nursing pads ($4.99 for 36 or $7.99 for 60) are more convenient and discreet, since they are soft and thin.
Lansinoh’s breastmilk storage bags ($5.99 for 25) have preprinted measurements and a place to write the date. A unique design and tamper-proof seal give them an advantage over generic bags.
The Lansinoh Clean & Condition Cloths ($3.59 for 70) are great, but I don’t think breastfed babies need special wipes.
I do like the sterile cleansing pads ($4.99 for 20). With my newborn spitting up frequently, keeping the folds of her neck clean has become easier with these pads.
It seems Lansinoh has breastfeeding products covered. Now if they could only come up with something for 2 a.m. feedings.
