FAQs About Nipple Balms & Creams

What Does Nipple Balm Do?

Nipple balm provides care and protection to nipples when breastfeeding. Nursing can cause cracked skin, nipple chafing and general soreness. Nipple balms and nipple creams can help to:

  • reduce soreness
  • restore moisture
  • relax nipples ahead of breastfeeding
  • heal nipples between feeds

What Is The Best Nipple Cream For Breastfeeding?

The best nipple cream for breastfeeding will be one formulated specifically for this purpose. This ensures it is safe for you and your baby. Think of it like face moisturiser and body moisturiser. Body moisturiser is too heavy for the face and face moisturiser is too light for body use. Nipple balms and creams are formulated to be hydrating, soothing and safe to use when nursing.

Do I Have To Wipe Off Nipple Cream Before Breastfeeding?

If you are using a specially formulated nipple cream for breastfeeding, there should be no need to wipe it off before nursing your baby. Most nipple balms are formulated to be baby safe once absorbed. If you are using vaseline or another cream, you will need to review the contents (consulting a nurse or GP) and likely wash any product off before breastfeeding.
