Clinical evidence: Lansinoh vs Expressed Breastmilk

Nipple pain and trauma are one of the main reasons for early cessation of breastfeeding in the early postpartum period.¹

Lansinoh is clinically proven to be more effective than expressed breastmilk on painful and damaged nipples

  • Greater improvement in relief of nipple pain
  • More healed nipples
  • Fewer complications
  • Less breastfeeding cessation

 

Lansinoh contains 100% highly purified anhydrous HPA® lanolin

width=273

  • Clinically proven to promote faster healing of nipple trauma
  • Does not need to be removed prior to breastfeeding
    > No smell
    > No taste
    > No preservatives
    > No antioxidants
  • Hypoallergenic – ultra-refined to remove lanolin-free alcohols
    to less than 1.5% and to lower detergent residues to a
    negligible level

 

Lansinoh is more effective than expressed breastmilk on painful and damaged nipples

  • Nipple pain and trauma associated with breastfeeding is common, with incidence varying between 34% and 96%¹
  • It is one of the main reasons for cessation of breastfeeding in the early postpartum period¹
  • Despite a lack of evidence-based research on the efficacy of expressed breastmilk for the treatment of sore and damaged nipples, expressed breastmilk is widely recommended¹
  • A study conducted in 2 Berlin hospitals certified by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative evaluated the efficacy of Lansinoh versus expressed breastmilk for the treatment of painful and damaged nipples in 84 lactating mothers

Conclusion

The authors concluded that Lansinoh combined with breastfeeding education was more effective than expressed breastmilk combined with breastfeeding education in reducing nipple pain and promoting healing of nipple trauma¹

 

Benefits of using Lansinoh for moist wound healing

  • Creates an air-permeable temporary barrier¹
  • Enhances the proliferation and migration of
    epithelial cells during healing¹
  • Eliminates crust formation and encourages healing
    up to 50% faster¹
  • Proven to have skin-protecting and barrier repair properties¹
  • Moist wound healing also provides relief of pain which is believed to be due to the moisture barrier, protecting exposed
    nerve endings²
