The best thing you can do to help with sore nipples is to use Lanolin. My favorite brand was Medela. Besides that, avoid getting soap on the nipples because it helps to dry them out and that is not going to feel good. Warm compresses can help as well as a warm shower. Honestly though, the lanolin was the absolute best thing I did when I was sore. I put it on before feeding, after feeding, and in between feeds. In addition, I used cloth nursing pads and that seemed to really help.
