Nurses give away the Lansinoh brand of Lanolin to new nursing Moms at Brigham & Women's. They're well aware of the possible aches and pains ahead. Lanolin, aka wool wax, is used to soothe sore nipples. No delicate way around it. Today I discovered another use: to heal messy, chapped lips. Per my Mom Janet, I bought a cube at CVS this afternoon. I forgot how goey it is! If you ever decide to use this trick, it only takes a very very small amount. Gross but it seems like it's working!
