Lansinoh ultra soft nursing pads were designed to gently cradle the breast for maximum comfort and absorbency. They can be used during the final weeks of your pregnancy or the first weeks of breastfeeding when your nipples may be especially tender.
Lansinoh HPA is partially occlusive (unlike Vaseline, a hydrocarbon, which is completely occlusive) and allows for the exchange of air (respiration) and moisture (transpiration) so that the skin does not become over hydrated. The consistency of Lansinoh HPA Lanolin is part of its effectiveness. The skin of the areola is highly innervated and by coating the free nerve endings and placing them in a more normal environment, many mothers report instant pain relief.
