Bio-Fem’s nipple care range protects and conditions the nipples while nursing

Makers of a lanolin free moisturising balm and compress, which ease the pain and discomfort of sore nipples, are giving away free samples of its Instant Relief Compress in support of National Breastfeeding Awareness Week 2009.

More than half (52 per cent) of mothers in the UK have given up breastfeeding by the time their baby is six weeks old, yet the World Health Organisation recommends that infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life.

One of the reasons women give up breastfeeding is sore nipples. There are a number of causes of sore nipples, but taking steps to address them quickly can ensure that women breastfeed comfortably for longer.

Bio-Fem’s nipple care range protects and conditions the nipples while nursing, relieving the discomfort of swollen, sore and cracked nipples pre- and post-pregnancy. Bio-Fem nipple products are 100% natural, preservative and lanolin free. The products are therefore entirely safe for both mother and baby and do not need to be removed prior to breastfeeding.

Free samples of the lanolin and preservative-free Bio-Fem Compress are available to breastfeeding mothers, visit to request a free sample.

Bio-Fem Instant Relief Compress was awarded ‘Best of the Best’ in the TIPS Awards, as voted by independent parent testers.
