I've been using a lot of lanolin to lubricate my nipples after bfeeding (Medela Tender Care). I've read that olive oil can also be used. Is there any benefit to Olive oil versus lanolin?<br><br>
The reason I ask is that even though lanolin is "safe" for baby, I wonder if its OK to ingest versus olive oil. I assume the baby will probably taste both of these products.<br><br>
thanks!

Olive oil will moisturize, but lanolin will also act as a barrier to keep wetness from your bra or nursing pads off your skin.<br><br>
Are your nipples sore or cracked?

My nipples are sore. I am also thinking of using Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Nipple Butter. I guess I want to use something that is non-toxic and better for the baby.thanks!
