    Exclamation Breastfeeding Nipple Cream Recalled

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Food and Drug Administration on Friday warned women not to use or purchase Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream, marketed by MOM Enterprises Inc. of San Rafael, California.

    The cream, promoted to nursing mothers to help soothe dry or cracked nipples, contains ingredients that may cause respiratory distress, vomiting and diarrhea in infants, the agency said.

    The potentially harmful ingredients in the cream are chlorphenesin and phenoxyethanol.

    "FDA is particularly concerned that nursing infants are being unwittingly exposed by their mothers to this product with dangerous side effects," said Janet Woodcock, director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "Additionally, these two ingredients may interact with one another to further compound and increase the risk of respiratory depression in nursing infants."

    The company has stopped selling the cream. The FDA said consumers should stop using the cream and consult a doctor if they experience problems or believe that their infant may have experienced problems due to the product.

    Mothers whose children may have suffered adverse effects because of this product should contact the FDA's MedWatch at 800-332-1088.

    That's kind of scary. I hope the kind I have for breastfeeding this baby is safe.

    I can not remember the life of me what I used. We were lucky that I did not have to use it much and it actually was great for diaper rash.

    The naval hospital docs has prescribed me 3 refills of Lansinoh. I just wanted to pass this along in case someone had bought it.

    Lansinoh and medela brand are both 100% pure lanolin. BUT, if you have a wool allergy you might not be able to use it.
