Used together with reusable bamboo nursing pads, this product helped keep my nipples moisturized, and promoted healing and prevented additional irritation between feeds. Baby had no issues at all with the taste. I tried coconut oil and olive oil alone and they didn’t work nearly the same way. I was also using gel pads, which did work, but I found it much more cumbersome to have to remove them and rinse breasts before each feed. And this nipple butter smells SO good! Like chocolate! And yes, it’s great for other uses, like for lips. Very grateful for this product, despite initial skepticism before purchasing.
