What is the solution to your nipples peeling off? I have been putting lotion on them to help, but here is my inherent scaredy cat....With dd my nips peeled, cracked, bled, hurt, got infected, to the point of breastfeeding becoming unbearable and I couldn't do it. I do not want that to happen again, and with ds I was able to 'rough' them up a bit by rubbing with a towel and such getting them ready, and I was able to breastfeed him for a couple of months until my supply was gone, but they are already sore and peeling and that is uncomfortable. I go to the doctor tomorrow and will ask him, but I wondered if you ladies had any great advice on the subject?? I want to breastfeed as long as possible this time, feeling like 2 months is better than the first time, but not long enough, and I want it to be a good experience this time...What should I be doing now to be ready? And am I doing something wrong????
