Of the 1,084 women, 739 women (or 68%) reported that they experienced physical issues relating to breastfeeding. Of these 739 women, 554 (or 75%) experienced general nipple tenderness/soreness. 171 women used HPA Lanolin as their primary intervention. Those respondents who used HPA Lanolin as their primary solution were able to breastfeed an additional 7.3 weeks on average compared to those who did not (33.5 weeks compared to 26.2 weeks).
The use of HPA Lanolin as a primary solution was associated with a substantial increase in breastfeeding duration, which ultimately improved overall breastfeeding outcomes.
