Do you have this?

Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream
Throw it out. It's been recalled. Some of the ingredients cause respiratory distress, vomiting, and diarrhea in nurslings.

Just because something's natural doesn't mean it's always safe! Poison ivy and hemlock are all natural, too.

Babies, in particular, are more susceptible to adverse reactions. What works fine on your 5 year old cannot always be given to your 5 month old.

The ingredients of the nipple cream include evening primrose oil and calendula (marigold) which can be a very efficacious remedy for eczema, but should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. It affects a woman's cycle. Evening primrose oil can cause diarrhea, occasionally.
