Lansinoh lanolin for re-lanolizing your wool covers. Unlike other lanolins you might find out there, Lansinoh is pure and does not "smell like a wet sheep" like some others I've tried. See the video of how to wash wool. Lanolizing as shown in the video does give the best wool performance results, and this is the least expensive way to lanolize your wools. Inexpensive and very effective. Pure lanolin; no alcohol or detergent residues. More effective than liquid lanolins and homemade mixes. Also great for breast soreness and is the same product as Lansinoh Lanolin for breastfeeding mothers. Lansinoh Lanolin is also the best rash cream ever in our opinion. Use this as a natural moisture barrier on baby's bottom, and for healing rashes. Also great for dry, cracked hands. It works! And it's totally pure with no funky "unpronounceables". Since it melts in hot water, it washes out of cloth diapers quite well, too, unlike many grocery store rash creams. A must for all babies, even if you don't choose wool covers.
Made in Australia.
Three tiny tubes in one box, call minis. Minis are just .25 ounces each for total of .75 ounces. Convenient for diaper bag, purse, changing table, laundry room, anywhere.

Lanolin is my go-to for everything from a sore baby bum to super dry cracked hands, chapped lips, dry skin on my face...you name it, and I've probably used lanolin to try to cure it. I weaned my younger daughter a year and a half ago, so while I no longer need it for breastfeeding purposes, I still keep a regular size tube of lanolin with my wipes for when she has a sore bum (usually around teething, or when it's time to put a tiny bit of bleach in the diaper laundry). It also works for healing dry skin in sensitive places on the rest of my family, too. My older daughter is a thumb-sucker, and since I can't do a bandage and antibiotic cream if she gets a cut on that thumb, I use lanolin to coat it. In a pinch, I've used lanolin as a protective barrier on other cuts as well before putting on a bandage (it works about as well as Neosporin!). I keep the mini tubes in each bathroom for use as bedtime lip balm, and one in my purse for daytime. In the colder months, I often need to soften Lansinoh before I apply it. What I like about the small tubes is that they soften in my pocket much more quickly than the large tube does, so it's much easier to apply a small amount to the area in need of moisturizing. I have used both Lansinoh and Medela lanolin, but I prefer Lansinoh for the majority of my applications, as its thicker consistency does a better job of coating the skin and truly acting as a barrier.
I had several tubes left from the early days of nursing, and I was kind of bummed because I thought they were just going to go to waste (it worked so well, I didn't have to use tons of it!). I'm SO HAPPY to learn they can be used on cloth diaper bums. We'll keep buying it - though I don't imagine we'll need to often! :)
I used Lansinoh for nipple tenderness during the early days of nursing, but it has really come in handy as a gentle ointment for my little guy's bottom for occasional redness. I always have a tube or two lying around for that and lanolizing wool covers.
This lanolin is amazing! I got a tube at the baby shower for my first child--it's 2 1/2 years later, my second child is 7 months old and the tube is finally almost gone! I've used it both while breastfeeding and for lanolizing wool covers. I have tried both liquid lanolin and spray lanolin and I keep coming back to my trusty ol' tube. I even use it on chapped hands when lotion isn't doing the trick. Must-have product not just for nursing mothers, but for everyone!
Miracle stuff right here! I knew Lansinoh from nursing, and had no idea I could use it to re-lanolize my wool covers. It works perfectly, and one tube lasts FOREVER.
