Absolute essential for sore nipples-little pricey though

Posted

Pros: really soothing

Cons: expensive, short term use

I had super sore nipples in the hospital due to my son not being able to latch well with his tongue tie (it took him a while to really figure out how to use his mouth properly after having his frenulum clipped).  The LC gave these to me and they were so nice!  I thought they were super pricey so I didn't replace them.  I've heard of people putting them in the fridge to offer extra relief but it was enough for me to just put them on.  You can only use these for a few days unfortunately.  I will be buying some to take with me to the birth center when I have my next baby and plan to buy a few pairs to use in the early days especially since my first son also had a...

Pros: soothing!

Cons: disposable, not refillable.

Pros: Reusable, super-soothing

Cons: really only for short-term use

I bought these when nursing my tongue-tied baby, and they are WONDERFUL! I gave them as a gift to my SIL and got a call 2 days after her baby was born saying that these saved their nursing relationship. Seriously, they are so comfortable and provide much more healing and comfort than nipple creams alone. All you do is get them wet and place them on for instant and continued comfort. They can be rinsed and reused for a few days, though I prefer a fresh pair after 2 days or so. highly, highly recommended!
