Products Liability > Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream

Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream is a product used to help soothe and heal the dry or cracked nipples experienced by numerous nursing mothers. In May 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned consumers not to use or purchase Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream, marketed by MOM Enterprises, Inc. FDA’s warning states that the product contains potentially harmful ingredients that may cause respiratory distress or vomiting and diarrhea in infants.

The label on the product explicitly states that there is no need for mothers to remove the cream prior to nursing. MOM Enterprises is definitely neglectful in making this statement because the chemicals used in Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream are potentially hazardous to nursing infants.

Potentially dangerous ingredients in Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream are chlorphenesin and phenoxyethanol. Chlorphenesin relaxes skeletal muscle and can depress the central nervous system and cause respiratory depression (slow or shallow breathing) in infants. Phenoxyethanol is a preservative that is primarily used in cosmetics and medications. It also can depress the central nervous system and may cause vomiting and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration in infants.

FDA warns mothers and caregivers to watch for a decrease in an infant's appetite, difficulty in awakening the child, limpness of extremities or a decrease in an infant's strength of grip, and a change in skin color. Immediate medical attention is necessary if an infant is showing any of these signs and symptoms.

The mother also can be affected by Chlorphenesin as it can cause dermatitis, a skin condition that can worsen the drying and cracking of nipple skin.

According to Janet Woodcock, director of FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, the two ingredients (chlorphenesin and phenoxyethanol) may interact with one another to further compound and increase the risk of respiratory depression in nursing infants.

MOM Enterprises has stopped selling the product. However, the company denies that the product was hazardous. According to MOM Enterprises, the amount of chlorphenesin and phenoxyethanol in the product is little comparative to what is considered acceptable for adults.

Though the product has now been removed from the market, it is indeed too late for many babies. Numerous infants might have already experienced severe side effects of Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream.
