Breastfeeding can be tough. Worth it? Definitely, but tough, nonetheless. From supply issues to painful nipples, it seems like there can be a million obstacles in the way. I recently had the chance to try out a product from the Earth Mama Angel Baby® line.
They make products for pregnancy, postpartum recovery, breastfeeding mamas, and baby. Here is a little bit of information from the Earth Mama Angel Baby® website:
“We use the highest-quality, certified-organic or organically grown herbs and oils for our teas, bath herbs, gentle handmade soaps, salves, lotions and massage oils. Our products are 100% toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free from all artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes. Our commitment to honor the earth and her valuable resources extends to our packaging as well – we use only eco-friendly recyclable or reused/reusable packaging and packing materials. It’s true – we are even the proud recipients of the BRAG (Business Recycling Award Group) for our green practices.”
I have used their Natural Nipple Butterduring the past month with great results. I had developed a small but seriously painful crack a couple days before this product landed on my doorstep. I suspect it was from a lazy latch, but for whatever reason, it was there and it hurt. I immediately started using this product and within a week, I was completely pain-free and healed. It helps moisturize and protect your nipples. Even when I first started using it, I could feel the pain letting up a little more after each application.
Two things that I really like about Natural Nipple Butter: #1: it isn’t sticky, at all! and #2: You don’t have to wash it off to nurse. With other products I’ve tried, Bella wouldn’t nurse until I had completely washed the product off. I don’t know if it was the stickiness or the taste, but it was a hassle and seemed like a waste of time. With EMAB, I can apply it and she’ll nurse like it’s not even there.
You can buy a 2oz jar of Natural Nipple Butter for $14.95 and it will last you a long time. A little goes a long way and I’d be willing to bet that my jar will last years.
