I couldn't use creams b/c I had thrush, so I didn't want to use my milk for the same reason/
Salt water soaks SAVED MY NIPPLES!!! Seriously. It really works.
I did 1 teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water, and soaked my nipples for about 5 minutes after every feeding, pat dry, then walked around with no bra until I was completely dry.
I still do the soaks when I start to get a little sore, and it help my nipples feel better.
