The Lactation Station Boobie Balm is made of 100% pure lanolin, meaning it is completely safe for breastfeeding mothers.
Lanolin derives from sheep’s wool and is the perfect hydration balm to be used for cracked, painful or dry nipples.
Boobie Balm is 100% natural and non-toxic which means there is no need to wipe or remove the balm before feeding the baby.

- Warm compress on the breasts.
- Soak cracked nipples in a warm saltwater bath. Rinse or wipe thoroughly before feeding the baby.
- Breastfeed baby on the less cracked side first.
