My nipples and areolas have been really dry and chapped looking the past couple of days. I've been trying to avoid soap in the shower, but sometimes it gets on there anyway, and also I've been SUPER dry lately all over my skin. It really hurts!
Anyway, I don't have any nipple cream or anything like that, though I plan to buy some soon. I do have Aquaphor & I used some yesterday and my boobies look & feel better, but I wanted to know if it's cool to do that. I was just using lotion, but it didn't really help at all. The Aquaphor helped and all, but it's so thick and stuff that I wasn't sure if it might be a bad idea to use on my nipples. I'm assuming I shouldn't use it when I'm actually nursing and plan to get something designed for breastfeeding moms like Lansinoh or that natural nipple butter stuff, but is it cool to Aquaphor it up right now?
