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.

Forget about breast feeding..... this is the ONLY product on the market that works effectively in healing dry, cracked, painful CHAPPED LIPS. And you would not believe what it can do for rough, DRY FEET! I use this stuff every day, and I don't have any kids!

I had an issue with very dry nipples and flaky in my fifth month of pregnancy. My doctor recommended Lansinoh to help with the dryness, so I used it from month five and continued while I nursed. I didn't have a lot of the soreness and chapping many women report and that was with a child who had an infection of his umbilical cord, making him want to nurse constantly both because he needed hydration and because he needed comfort. I truly believe that by condition my nipples with Lansinoh before I gave birth made them more pliant and supple and helped me be successful with nursing even with a bit of a rocky start.

I love this product. A little goes a looong way. Very soothing. Don't buy two tubes. One lasts forever. I used mine every day while I breastfed and I didn't even use a quarter of it. It is a great buy.

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.

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 get very chapped hands and lips in winter so I bought several lanolin ointments at my local drug store. All of the brands are not created equal so I decided to compare three versions of lanolin ointments.

Lansinoh HAP "****" (4 stars); This is a pharmaceutical grade ointment and the most expensive per ounce of the three types I bought. It is a stiff paste in a squeeze tube. I can detect almost no odor or taste from it. It can be hard to squeeze out of the tube and is so thick, you have to warm it up in your hands for a few seconds before applying. I apply it to my lips, let it sit a minute, then wipe it off with a washcloth. It also works on my hands. I can believe it would work well for breast feeding. To solve the problem of squeezing it out of the tube, I cut a little flap in the tube and scoop out what I need. Because it's so thick, it doesn't ooze out of the flap.

Lanolin, Anhydrous Lanolin Pharmaceutical Grade "****" (4 stars); This is a pharmaceutical grade ointment and was in the middle price range per ounce. It is a thick tan paste with a moderate smell. I like that it is in a wide-mouth jar and easy to scoop out. I put it on my hands, let it sit a few minutes, then wipe it off with a wash cloth. It stops the chapping overnight. I like it, but the smell is such, that I don't put it on my lips or use it around other people.

Now Foods Lanolin Pure, 7-Ounce "*" (one star); This is the only ointment I bought that wasn't listed as pharmaceutical grade and it was the cheapest per ounce. It is a thick yellow paste that certainly looks like 100% lanolin but smells so bad, I simply can't use it on my skin.

SUMMARY -
The Lansinoh: Very useful, works wonderfully for chapped skin or lips, no obvious smell or taste, but a bit hard to use.

Australian Golden Lanolin: Easy to use, works wonderfully for chapped hands, not a bad price, a bit smelly.

The NOW ointment: Relatively inexpensive but I can't stand the smell.

Recommended!

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 have tried both Medela & Lansinoh lanolin ointments and find the Medela much easier to apply. The Medela is a yellow thinner ointment so it's easy to squeeze out of the tube and apply, while the Lansinoh is clear but very thick and almost impossible to squeeze out and spread evenly.

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!
