Pea in a Pod Nipple Butter
This nipple butter is a rich, natural ointment made with organic Cocoa, Shea & Mango butters, as well as healing lanolin- the best ingredient to soothe, nourish and moisturize sore and cracked nipples. Safe for both nursing mamas and babies, a little of their butter will go a very long way.
PQ Tip: Apply sparingly. Use before you start nursing and after DO NOT wipe this product off your nipples before nursing, as it is safe for baby, and this product absorbs quickly into the skin after application.
PQ Tip: When my baby began teething, she would get rashes underneath her chin from drooling so much. I would apply this nipple butter under her chin and the rash and dryness would go away. It added a barrier on her chin against the saliva. I also use this as lip balm on my toddler because it’s super moisturizing.

The Postpartum Queen's Guide to Survive, Thrive & Slay
Postpartum Queen's Co- Owner and mother of two- Christine Bassit has written a 9 chapter short story book about her own postpartum experiences and experiences of other women. She discusses everything from the first horrific postpartum poop, postpartum sex, going from 1 child to 2, ways new dads can help their partners, postpartum bodies, her battle with postpartum depression and more.
"When you become a mom you go from being a woman that only has to take care of herself to now being responsible for keeping a little human alive. It changes you. The way you think, the relationship you have with your partner (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse). It changes the way you act with your friends, especially if you are in a different stage of life than them. It changes the way you think of your career, and it can change the way you view your body, your mind and your self-worth. It’s a big change, and any resources you can arm yourself with to make it through this transition are a positive. I hope that as you read them, they will make you laugh, make you happy, make you cry, give you comfort, and most of all know, let you know that you are not alone."- Christine
