    Lansinoh cream was a god send. Also a cup of water poured into nappy and then frozen was great to use after feeding. Cheap and can be reused. Looks a bit strange when guests opened my freezer though!

    It does get better!!!

    This. I also put a bit of lansinoh on before a feed just to stop any further damage.

    Agree on the Lansinoh - you can use beforehand to protect and after to heal - was my saviour in the beginning!!!

    Could it be nipple thrush? I've just had vaginal thrush.
    Trying to get a dr appointment but basically impossible on a Saturday afternoon. All closed

    Midwife thinks its the beginning of mastitis. Told me what to do to stop it developing as I don't have the fever. Should I go to dr anyway as a precaution. I heard not everyone gets the fever.

    Lansinoh after every feed & if they start to crack, those gel discs are amazing!

    DS2 had a dodgy latch & my nipples were ripped to shreds & within 24 hrs of using the gel discs they were all good & no problems since (also obviously fixing his latch issues helped too).
