    Hi lactation ladies! Anyone ever hear of this? Another one from Lactnet for discussion…

    Hi all,

    I have seen a mother who has been experiencing a burning sensation on the nipples within minutes of applying Lansinoh. She does not experience any such feeling when using the APNO.
    She has discontinued the Lansinoh, but we are both curious about why it was happening. Any ideas or have you seen this before?

    Could possibly be a reaction to wool as its a wool based product. I would try your own breastmilk first and then some coconut oil. Make sure to air dry your nipples well daily.

    I agree with Kirsten. I remember years ago working with a mom where we couldn’t figure out what was causing the eczema-like symptoms on her breasts. It turns out she had an allergy to wool, and was using lanolin after every feeding.
