Article number: 2112609
Availability: In stock (29)

Sore and cracked nipples can be a real problem for breast-feeding mothers. This issue is
one of the most common reasons moms stop breast-feeding early in their experience

  • As much as 96% of breast-feeding moms report at least some nipple discomfort during
    the first 6 weeks after the birth of a baby
  • There are many possible contributors to the development of sore and cracked nipples during breast-feeding, so you should always speak to your physician, nurse and/or lactation consultant about your experiences and ask them for help and guidance in how you might decrease your discomfort.
  • Nipple injuries can really interfere with your breast-feeding experience. The best treatment for nipple injuries is prevention! However, when they do occur, MediHoney® Wound and Burn Dressing may be used to help provide protection to the area, decrease chafing and help the injury to close.
  • MediHoney Paste (100% Active Leptospermum Honey) is the most appropriate of the Medihoney products for this use.

When using MediHoney, we recommend the following:

  • After nursing, gently cleanse the nipple area with a warm washcloth to remove any of the baby’s saliva.
  • Extrude a small amount of MediHoney from the tube and gently apply to the nipple and the
    areola (the colored area around the nipple)
  • Apply a nursing pad over the nipple area and wear a bra to help secure the pad
  • Just prior to nursing your baby, use a warm wet washcloth to clean off any MediHoney prior
    to allowing the baby to latch.
  • MediHoney Paste is 100% honey and contains no additives and is filtered and sterilized to
    remove any bacteria or spores
