Why we made this

Breastfeeding is a natural process, and yet 92% of people experience breastfeeding problems. [1]

Your nipples are constantly being pulled and sucked throughout the day to keep your baby fed, making itchy nipples one of the most common breastfeeding problems.

That’s why we created the Nipple Balm - a natural, nourishing blend of of Avocado oil, Lanolin and Shea Butter to build skin elasticity before and during breastfeeding and prevent chafing and nipple cracking.

We know you'll be super busy and your baby will want a feed any time of day. So, we made our nipple cream safe to leave on between feeds. Yep, there’s no need to wipe off!

Mastitis

Around 1 in 5 breastfeeding mums get mastitis, a painful infection of the breast tissue usually caused by a blocked milk duct. [2]

Cracked Nipples

Sore, cracked, or bleeding nipples affects around 50% of breastfeeding people in the first week after birth. Engorgement can also lead to dry and irritated skin.

Engorgement

When the breast tissue overfills with milk, blood, and other fluids, it can make your breasts feel full, swollen, hard, or painful.

Ask us anything

Seriously, our experts have all the answers.

Is the Nipple Balm safe to use while breastfeeding?

Yes! The Nipple Balm is made in Australia from  natural ingredients including Avocado Oil, Rosehip Oil and Shea Butter. It’s safe for both mum and baby — there’s no need to wipe it off before breastfeeding.

What is the Nipple Balm made of?

Only natural ingredients:
Avocado Oil, Lanolin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Beeswax, Rosehip Oil, Calendula Infused Oil, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol.

How do I use the Nipple Balm?

1. Apply a small amount of cream with dry, clean hands.
2. Apply directly to the nipples as often as required. The Nipple Balm is suitable for breastfeeding mums without needing to wash the cream off.

Why is breastfeeding important?

Breastfeeding benefits mums by promoting faster recovery from birth, reduced breast and ovarian cancer risk in later life, and improved mother-infant bonding. For baby, breastfeeding protects against chest, ear and urine infections, diabetes, eczema and asthma. Evidence also suggests breastfed babies are better protected from SIDS, heart disease, and coeliac disease. [3]

How long should I breastfeed for?

Australian breastfeeding guidelines recommend exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, then continued breastfeeding combined with solid foods for 1 year and beyond, if both mum and baby wish. In Australia, 90% of new mums initiate exclusive breastfeeding, but only around 15% continue until 5 months.[4] Kin’s Breastfeeding Essentials are designed to tackle the common breastfeeding problems that contribute to this drop-off.

How do I know when to call my doctor?

It’s normal to experience some breast pain and nipple discomfort while breastfeeding, and it’s a good idea to ask your doctor or midwife about what you can expect. The Breastfeeding Essentials bundle is designed to help you alleviate these, but if you find your symptoms are worsening, give your doctor a call.
