One of the most integral and special aspect of motherhood has been breastfeeding. As a woman conceives another soul into her womb, her body magically prepares itself for the arrival of her baby. Admit the several changes, a woman’s breasts and nipples change drastically. A good yet safe, nipple care routine is a must for expecting moms and new moms.
Himalaya FOR MOMS has launched a range of products to cater to soon-to-be moms and new moms, and Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter is one of those products. Although I am now a mother breastfeeding a toddler, I often need a nipple care cream to heal the cracked and sore nipple. Here is what I think of the Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter.
Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter is an herbal formulation with the goodness of natural oils. Ideal for both expecting and lactating mothers. It claims to help prepare nipples for effective nursing and also help in the prevention and management of sore and cracked nipples.
Kokum Butter is used for ulcerations, fissured lips, chapped skin and skin disorders. It exhibits excellent emollient properties and deeply moisturizes and promotes healthy, supple skin.
Virgin Coconut Oil has cooling properties and helps in strengthening muscle and tissue. It has antibacterial, antiseptic and cleansing properties. The natural Vitamin E present in Virgin Coconut Oil promotes healthy skin, and helps in smoothening and protecting skin from cracks and fissures.
Price, Packaging and Availability
The Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter is packed in a tube that contains 20 G of the product. The tube is sure to last for a long time, since you only need a small portion of the butter at every use. I personally like the tube packaging as I find it both convenient and hygienic.
The Nipple Care Butter is reasonably priced at INR 75 for 20 G. Although it has been recently launched it is easily available at General/Modern Trade stores, chemists and several E Commerce portals.
Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter is extremely thick and oily in texture. It instantly moisturizes the nipple area to soothe irritation because of dryness. It is like a gel and leaves a thick layer after use. It has worked effectively in soothing cracked nipples. The packaging states that the nipple care butter is safe during breastfeeding however I would highly recommend wiping it off with wet cotton or washing the nipple before breastfeeding.
Himalaya FOR MOMS Nipple Care Butter is a natural and effective option for nipple care in an easy way. Expecting mothers can use the product to cure soreness and keeps the nipples and aerola moisturized.
