yellowish crust on nipples

by Janel Smelser

My name is Janel.

I have successfully bf my 3 children. I am now six years later 23 weeks pregnant w/my forth. I have noticed that my nipples are cracking already and while I have no pain they almost look like they have a yellowish crust on them. Should I begin treating them w/Lansinoh?

coconut oil for cracked nipples
by: Tracy

Hi Janel

yes, you can definitely use lansinoh or you can use my favorite: pure, unrefined, virgin organic coconut oil.

Coconut oil is great because it will prevent an infection as well as soften and heal the nipples.

Coconut oil contains the same Lauric acid that breast milk contains, which means that it is anti fungal & antibacterial. Also it is safe for you to continue its use while breastfeeding because it is completely natural. Not just that, it prevents yeast infections like oral thrush.
