"Lasinoh" has always worked super fast and super well for me.<br><br>
ETA: Oh - and after nursing, manually express some breastmilk onto your nipple and leave it on there to airdry. It's a miracle healer!
Green Goop! It works well for diaper rashes and all skin irritations- we love it!<br><a href="http://www.jilliansdrawers.com/store/greengoop.html" target="_blank">http://www.jilliansdrawers.com/store/greengoop.html</a>
Thanks! Yeah, Lanisoh is what I meant when I said lanolin. I just can never remember how to spell it - Lansinoh? Lasinoh? Lanisoh? - whatever. I'll try the breastmilk right away. My husband votes for topless, but I'm thinkin I should invest in some nipple butter or green goop too. I wish I could find some locally so I didn't have to pay for shipping. I've never had any nipple problems, but my almost 14 month has started resting his teeth right at the crease between my nipple and areola. At least I think that's what's going on! Looks like a good latch on the outside and doesn't hurt while he's nursing, but I'm sore and red in between. Thanks for your help, mommies.
Another vote for breastmilk. After every nursing, express a little milk on your nipple and rub it in. Then try to go topless or at least keep your bra flaps open as often as possible. Another thing, don't use soap on your nipples when you shower. . .it can be irritating and removes the protective oils/milk from them.
