Hi nursing mamas. I have yet to have my baby, but with my dd, I had the worse nipple issues including bleeding blisters, etc.

I know that part of the reason was due to inadequate latch, but it was not comfortable to say the least. (I had major infections, too which didn't help with the latch).

Anything that I can use other than lansinoh, which didn't help me btw, to prevent and treat cracked sore nipples if it occurs this time around? I really would like to have a smoother nursing newborn experience this time around.

I'm surprised that I nursed my dd until she was 2.5!

Thanks.
