what to do for nipple pain?
Do you put ice or what on sore nipples?? As Elise gets older her sucking while bf is becoming painful. She's to rough! Bitting and pulling on them all the time. She nurses for comfort also so you can imagine. I feel so sore.
I used Lanolin Cream which helped a lot but did not completely stop the pain.
Thanks I will try the lanolin cream.
I used lanolin cream for cracked nipples and nipple soreness but nipple pain I endured 2.5 years nursing my youngest because of scar tissue. :( I had a nurse and breastfeeding doctor recommend using a needle to get through the scar tissue but I just couldn't do it and I have a high pain threshold. You can always talk to a lactation consultant, La Leche league leader or a doctor who specializes in breastfeeding, not all doctors do.
