Abstract:  Breastfeeding is readily accepted as the ideal source of infant nutrition for healthy growth and development. There are, however, many factors that lead to a mother’s decision to discontinue breastfeeding. The most commonly reported problem is sore or painful nipples. It is essential that the healthcare team not only understands the obstacles associated with continued breastfeeding, but also work together to overcome them. Through preparation of “all-purpose nipple ointment” and patient education, compounding pharmacists can do their part as essential members of the healthcare team and provide a pharmaceutical therapy for one of the major causes of breastfeeding discontinuance.
