I've tried probably 80% of the creams on the market for this problem. Us mothers have it rough. Here's my break down on this particular one.
Pros:
Doctor recommended
Soothes pain
Lasts a long time
Baby safe
Inexpensive

Cons:
Very thick
Stains clothes/bras/pads

The staining aspect can take away from the value of being inexpensive because some stains don't come out in the wash. I've taken to only using this before bed for that reason- I don't mind what my pajamas look like. In the morning or on the run I'm using nipple cream by Motherlove instead; Motherlove Nipple Cream + FREE Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion Fragrance Free - 8 oz.. It's thinner and works just as well. It absorbs a lot quicker though so much less stain or residue worries. It's a little more pricey but saving my clothes is worth the extra couple bucks. Plus, I've noticed it works great for my daughter's diaper rash. Items with multiple uses are a mother's best friend.

I actually use this for chronic dry lips. If I use this stuff, my lips become soft and perfect. If I use Chapstick or Burts Bees or ANY other thing (I've tried everything), I am wasting my money. I squeeze this stuff into my old chapstick tubes and lip ointment tubs and I take them with me everywhere. Just be aware that it's sensitive to temperature. The tube is hard to squeeze when cold, and if it's too hot, the lanolin pours out too quickly. Keep it somewhere that it won't be exposed to temperature extremes, and you'll be fine. Oh, and I gave a tube to my breastfeeding daughter who was having chafing issues, and within a couple of days, she was fine. I asked if she wasn't going to use it any more to give it to me rather than throw it away, and she said she's been using it for diaper rash, with amazing results. I think there are many uses for this stuff - it's natural and it works.

Not as good as he Medela brand. This one is thicker and stickier. It caused a couple of clogged pores because its so thick. And it gets everywhere. I finally decided it was better to pump without anything than use this -- that's how bad it was. Then I found tried the Medela brand. I wouldn't go back if you paid me!

I'm a guy, I can't comment on the sore nipples. However, my pharmacist recommended this product for extremely sore and chapped lips. This stuff works wonders on my lips when carmex just was no longer cutting it.

I love this product. First the product itself is awesome when nursing, but the mini sizes are incredibly convenient to have around. One in my purse, diaper bag, in the car...it's nice to not have to carry a large tube around. Not to mention remembering where you laid it. I like just having little ones where I need them. Convenience with children is a priceless commodity.

I tried another expensive cream which i used for 2 days in the hospital. it left me cracked and dry. i switched to this once i got home and it's taken about 3 days to repair the damage from the previous cream, but this stuff is magic. i apply a light coating after every feeding...will be buying more for sure!!

I bought a tube of this to use in conjunction with the Avent Nipplettes, but I'm sure it will come in handy when jumping into breastfeeding as well. I will say take care not to get it on your clothes, because it tends to leave an oily stain that won't come out in the wash.

This amazing, all-natural product relieved painful nipples after breastfeeding (just the smallest little amount was all that was needed), and also works as a great diaper rash cream.

My baby and I ended up with thrush, and both of us were miserable. We tried a random treatment I read about online (1:1 mixture of white distilled vinegar to water), and I would use a washcloth soaked and wrung out to wipe my nipples after nursing. I would then use the lanolin and within 1 day, the pain was almost gone, and by day 2, I was completely better! My baby had thrush on her bottom and we used the vinegar solution on cloth wipes and then just a tiny bit of the lanolin. She went from a very angry, blistery thrush diaper rash to nothing in 2 days. Amazing! We tried almost every diaper rash cream on the market!

This stuff is just wonderful.

This is a must for any breast feeding mom. It is wonderful in those first weeks. I used it after every feeding. My nipples got sore but I never got cracked or bleeding nipples. I also use this to "lube up" the breast shields of my pump. (Like oil for pistons in a car). Get several tubes, one for by your bed, in the diaper bag, in your pump bag, in your bathroom, etc. My baby didn't seem to notice a taste, or just didn't care.

I'm actually using this for severely chapped lips, and it works wonders. The only thing is it's ridiculously hard to squeeze out of the tube, particularly with my arthritic fingers. Once it's out, it melts on your fingertip, and is very easy to apply.
