Three days of breastfeeding my nipples became very cracked and sore. Every time P2 latched I’d wince in pain and suffer the whole feed just wondering how long I could cope with this before I was forced to give up.
On day four, we visited my MiL and she suggested a nipple cream and that although expensive, Lansinoh was a great product. So I immediately sent my OH to fetch some cream.
You can purchase a 40ml tube of cream from Mothercare for £9.99 which I personally think is quite expensive, but it is totally worth every penny because you literally need a pea size or even smaller amount of cream per nipple so it lasts a while. The cream doesn’t smell/taste of anything so baby still latches perfectly.
I was lucky enough to have soft, healed and beautiful pain-free nipples again in just two days of using the cream after every feed. I was amazed and completely over the moon.
