DS has been out of diapers for over a year, so it's been awhile since I lanolized, but not THAT long and I've hit a major snag here getting ready for baby #2. I swear I'm using the exact same process--some Lansinoh and a little hot water in a jar, dissolved by shaking it, then pour it into a bucket of lukewarm water. I never had a problem.

First of all, it's not dissolving in the jar nearly as easily as I remember--it's taking FOREVER. Then, when I finally get the globs dissolved, they come back as soon as I pour it into the cooler water. So frustrating. Have they changed the Lansinoh formula or something? Pure lanolin is pure lanolin, right?

BTW, spray lanolin doesn't work for me either. I can't get it to spray in a "fine mist"--just a solid, thin stream which puts big spots on my wool. But I do have some of the Luxe spray lanolin--but since it's in liquid form, maybe I'll have better luck if I use it in a bucket of water like regular lanolin?

Any ideas on why my Lansinoh process is failing, or other suggestions welcome. TIA!

put it in the jar, and microwave it for 30 seconds, that should melt it sufficiently. I also add a few drops of baby soap to the mixture.

Add some wool detergent like eucaline. It helps the lanolin dissolve.

I have the liquid spray lanolin and I just take the top off and pour it into the bowl of warm water. I could never make the lansinoh work for me.
