Breggy’s Nipple Healing Balm – For Sore Cracked Nipples

Image

When beginning to breastfeed its normal for your nipples to get sore . Sometimes they even crack and bleed … Here is a nipple balm that I make  for my clients that helps heal.

For my healing nipple balm I use : Calendula cream or ointment ( repairs chapped or chafed skin ) , Comfey Root ointment( heals cuts , burns and abrasions ) , Vitamin E oil ( promotes healing ), Lanolin ( anti inflammatory, moisturizer  and heals speed healing  (* make sure you aren’t allergic ) , Jojoba oil ( moisturizer ) , Coco Butter  ( repairs ,heals and is a moisturizer )and Aloe Vera gel ( helps body repair itself ) .

I use a base of calendula cream or ointment and comfrey Root ointment . Then  I mix in a little of each ingredient  . Keep in refrigerator ( the cold feels good and soothing on the nipples )

* IMPORTANT  ….. WASH OFF BEFORE NURSING !!!!!!

After you wash off expose nipples to sunlight and air for  20 minutes ( 5 -10 minutes is fine too, whatever you have time for ) .. You can do in a window it doesn’t have to be done outside . It’s a Great time for a cat nap  !!! Take shirt off   , lay down in window area  and if sunlight bothers you wear eye mask .
