Multi-Mam Lanolin is recommended for preventing cracked nipples and improving the condition of the nipple-area tissue. Lanolin – the fat from sheep’s wool – is a traditional way of soothing cracked skin; Multi-Mam Lanolin contains ultra-purified, medical grade lanolin, which replaces the lipid layer of the skin.

Do I need to remove Multi-Mam Lanolin before breastfeeding?
No, it is harmless when swallowed and has a neutral taste and smell. It is especially recommended to apply the balm right after breastfeeding – if applied just before feeding, it can make latching on more difficult for your baby.
How often do I need to use the Multi-Mam Lanolin?
As often as you like. For optimal protection, use Multi-Mam Lanolin at least twice a day.
What is the best way to apply Multi-Mam Lanolin?
Soften a small amount of Multi-Mam Lanolin between your fingertips and apply to the entire nipple area. It may be helpful to gently knead the tube or warm it in your hands before using.
What is the difference between Multi-Mam Lanolin and Multi-Mam Balm?
Lanolin is based on purest natural wool fat. Multi-Mam Balm is a plant-based alternative to Lanolin, based on a selection of plant oils.
I continually suffer from cracked nipples, which is very painful. What can I do?
Use a cream that softens and restores the skin tissue, and does not need to be removed before breastfeeding. Multi-Mam Lanolin reinforces and conditions the skin tissue. It is natural, has no taste, and is harmless when swallowed – so it can keep your skin tissue healthy and strong during feeding and throughout the day.
What are the causes of nipple problems?
Most nipple injuries result from a poor latch; it is important that the most sensitive part of the nipple tissue is pulled deeply into your baby’s mouth. Using products that diminish the skin’s natural protection, such as soaps and shampoos, can also cause cracked nipples. Finally, yeast infections, eczema, or a tendency for dry skin are potential causes of nipple problems.
