Let Love Nourish Sponsor Spotlight: Fairhaven Health

When I was pregnant with Haley, I had the opportunity to review several pregnancy products from Fairhaven Health. Not only did I love all of the stuff I tried (belly cream, prenatal vitamins, deodorant, and a yoga DVD), I loved the company’s customer service! They’ve been great to work with and offered to let me review (and giveaway!) some of their nursing products as well! In addition to pregnancy and nursing products, they have a line of products for those who are trying to conceive. They definitely have you covered before, during and after pregnancy!

Since my review, they’ve added a few products to their line up! They now have a belly butter to go along with their belly cream and have added a calcium and magnesium supplement. That’s something I should definitely look into now that I’m dairy-free for Haley.  We’ve definitely confirmed that she’s got a milk protein sensitivity.

Fairhaven Health sent me their Nipple Nurture Balm and their Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement to try since I’m nursing Haley (which is going great by the way). They’ve also got a breastfeeding tea and a breastfeeding multivitamin in their product line.

Fairhaven_Health_Nipple_Nurture_BalmThe Nipple Nurture Balm is definitely my favorite nipple cream that I’ve tried. I forgot to take it with me to the hospital so I had to use what they had there and I remembered that I’m not fond of nipple creams that are lanolin based. I don’t think I have a lanolin allergy, but I just don’t like the way it makes my skin feel. I much prefer creams that don’t have it in it. They seem to glide on better in my opinion. The Nipple Nurture Balm doesn’t have lanolin, thankfully, and I was so glad when I got home so I could start using it. I only experienced slightly sore nipples for about a week. I think Grady weaning only a few months before had a lot do with it and made it easier to get back into the groove of things. Luckily, Haley wasn’t tongue tied like Grady was, and that helped a lot, too! I used it after nursing every time for the first week or so and it made my nipples feel much beter. It glides on smooth so there’s no pulling in that sensitive area. My only dislike is the smell. One of the ingredients is olive oil, and I think it smells like that. It’s not a bad smell, just unexpected. Ingredient wise, it’s very simple and natural: marshmallow root, self-heal (an herb), calendula, extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, and shea butter.

Fairhaven_Health_Nursing_Blend_Breastfeeding_SupplementI was also sent the Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement but I haven’t been able to try it yet. It’s a combination of vitamins and galactagogues to increase milk production. See, I’ve got an oversupply and a forceful letdown already, so I don’t want to make it worse. Haley already has trouble keeping up. She often pulls off and gags because it’s coming out so fast! If you’re familiar with fenugreek then you know it has a slightly maple syrupy smell. That’s exactly what these pills smell like. You’ll smell like that, too! I’ll be saving these for later on to use if I ever notice a dip in my supply or I need to bump it up for what ever reason!

Comments

  1. I love that the nipple cream doesn’t contain lanolin. I also don’t like the way it feels or the feeling of it on my nipple. I definitely love that this is also all natural as well!

  2. I’ve been looking for a natural product since i’ll be breastfeeding soon, my baby is due in 4 weeks. Thanks for doing a great review on this product! Also like that they have a supplement!

  3. I tried using Lansinoh after my daughter was born and it was SO hard to get on! It must have been the lanolin in it, I never did use it again. I didn’t realize there were other options of creams to use besides what you might buy at Target or B r Us before my daughter was born so I would love this for my next little one!

  4. Samantha Vermeulen says:

    I would love to try that nipple cream!

  5. I haven’t started breastfeeding yet, but when I do I will definitely have to try this cream!

  6. I found nursing my second was easier as well. My first was still nursing occasionally, and I was only sore for about a week with #2. I think having experience and being more proactive (I started using lanolin right away) helped.

  7. Mary C. Perry says:

    I agree that Lanolin makes the skin feel strange, so I will have to try this! I also want to try the breastfeeding supplement so I can have a good start when my new baby is here!

  8. Sarah Davis says:

    I know first hand that those galactogoge ingredients do work!

  9. I read about this supplement today, definitely would love to try it.

  10. I didn’t even know that there are nipple creams out there not made of lanolin. It’s good to know that there are alternatives.

  11. This is a really great looking product! I love that it doesn’t contain lanolin, because that’s a common allergen. :)

  12. Shakeeta W says:

    I agree with you: nursing the 2nd time around has been easier, even with a super-tight tongue tie! My son is 4 months and by now, I had already stopped BFing my daughter due to misinformation and lack of support from my Ped :(

  13. Kelly Mills says:

    These are products I definately need. I am new to breastfeeding and appreciate the info and giveaway.

  14. Bekah Kuczenski says:

    I would love to try the nipple nurture balm it looks so soothing, and I love that it isn’t lanolin based!

  15. Michelle Ferguson says:

    The second time around nursing has been so much easier for me also! I commend you for giving up dairy! I’m not sure that’s something I could do! I have tried this supplement and really liked it. It definitely helped with my supply!
