Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm Review

Mustela 9 Months Nursing Comfort Balm 30ml
The most common problems a new Mom encounter are the pains, aches and discomforts when breastfeeding their little one. This includes tender breasts and sore, cracked nipples which can be very painful. Believe me, when my firstborn Dirk was trying to latch during the first few weeks of breastfeeding (that was 4 years ago), the pain was agonizing and almost made me quit. But of course the Mom in me endured everything for my baby - they say breast milk is the best for babies and I say I am determined to give my children the very best!

I only wish I knew then that there are products specifically formulated for pregnant and breastfeeding Moms like Mustela. This time around, I got luckier and got introduced to Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm from the brand's 9 Months product range, developed to address the changes to a woman's skin during pregnancy and after giving birth.

My Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm Experience

I started applying it on my breasts as early as December 5, 2012, a week before I gave birth to Baby Kassy. During that time, the only change I noticed was that it makes my skin supple. But after 2 days of giving birth, the other benefits of using the product was put to the test. And I wasn't disappointed!

The milk did not come until my second day in the hospital. I woke up with huge, hard and swollen nipples and an excruciating pain. That's when I started to feed Kassy and applied the product to my nipple area after each and every feeding. I rinse it with warm water before every feeding, though I've read in Mustela's website that there is no need to rinse it and that it is safe to be ingested by babies. 

It has a thick formulation but it glides easily on skin, making application easy-breezy. It's also hypoallergenic, fragrance and colorant free!

After 2 days, the swelling is gone and I felt much better. But I noticed that my nipples have cracked a little, though not like my first time with Dirk where my nipples were cracked too much to the point of bleeding. Also with Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm, the cracked skin heals much faster. I still use it up to this day as often as needed. This product indeed is a new Mom's best friend!
