VEGAN NIPPLE BALM

Sort out your breastfeeding nipples with vegan nursing cream, oil or balm.

Any oil which is edible to babies could be used for sensitive nipples.  You could look in the kitchen or try a plain carrier oil.  I used almond and coconut, but not for that long.  I do remember often putting a load on before leaving the house, as this meant it wouldn't immediately be sucked off by baby... It was suggested to one of my friends that she put olive oil on a breast pad and wear this to prevent blisters.  The nipple cream tube available in health food shops tends to contain beeswax (cera alba) or sheep's wool (lanolin).
