I remember the very first week of breastfeeding I had very sore nipples. The only relief I found was from Lansinoh cream. You can find it pretty much everywhere, Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, etc. You put the cream all over your nipple after each feeding. It's completely safe for both you and baby, and it helps fast! I've heard of some moms "icing" their nipples, but luckily the cream worked well enough for me.


Lansinoh lanolin. All Purpose Nipple Ointment. Coconut Oil is amazing I'm finding. Just walking around with no bra on and letting your shirt 'rough' them up.
