The other fantastic cream I used with my second baby is Dr Wheatgrass Superbalm. I discovered this cream after I stopped breastfeeding my first child. I was quite anxious at the time and developed IBS. This unfortunately led to an anal fissure which was agony for several hours a day. I was given some treatments by my doctor, but the fissure always came back and the side effects were nasty. After some internet research I discovered Dr Wheatgrass Superbalm, and in desperation I ordered some. The Superbalm promised to heal the fissure after a few weeks of use because of its miracle healing powers. To my immense relief it actually worked. I therefore decided to try the Superbalm on my nipples when breastfeeding my second child. I contacted the manufacturer to ask if it was safe and they said it was, but that I should wipe it off with a damp cloth just before feeding. On bad days I used the cream after every feed but I usually only used it at night if I felt particularly sore. It really helped.

Thanks for this. Amazingly, this is my second child and I only managed breastfeeding for five weeks with my first child because of cracked nipples. My second baby is now nearly 8 weeks and I am still going thanks to the super balm. I think you should market it as a nipple cream! So many people I know have this issue and have to give up.

Been there. Done everything. Nothing worked. Dr Wheatgrass spray fixed it and cracked nipples. Hubby’s smiling again!
