...cream, gel, pads!
You can try many different things to help sore nipples!
- lanolin cream totally helps.. use this after feeding instantly.. it's fine for the baby to get on their lips too.. so lather it on!
- nursing pads.. use these in between feedings.. sometimes the gel ones can really help soothe too.. I used these a few times!
- breastmilk! I have heard that squeezing a small amount of bm out and rubbing on your nipples, letting air dry.. it helps, and it does soothe & heal!
- don't let soap touch or cover nipples during showering or bathing.. this can totally dry out the nipples.. making them hurt much more!
Those are nipple tips off the top of my head ;)
Lanolin Cream definitely helps, same with the pads. Showers didn't bother me as much, though.
