Mine get super sensitive too and I feel the same way I have been using the cream and it helps but this weekend I started to use a pump just to give my nips a break! I feel for you..it's the worst feeling! I would try using cream and another suggestion I got from a lactation specialist s to use a heat pack on them..also put your own breast milk on them...that should help I would think. Good luck!

lanolin! it worked like a charm for me when I had this exact problem with DS1. I slathered it on and was still able to breastfeed (it was definitely still uncomfortable but tolerable) and DS1 didnt seem bothered by all the lanolin on my nipple

Lanolin or nipple butter! But even better is putting breastmilk on it and covering with a cooling gel pad. Saved me for sure!

Ya I have 2 types of gel pads. The LC in the hospital gave me a pair of Ameda ones which I love. They are reusable for 6 days. At home I already had the medela ones. They stick way better but I found the relief from the Ameda ones better. Both were good though and really saved my nipples. I may have even given up if I didn't have them!

I will look for the gel pads! I have been using lasinoh, it does help allot but it just isnt healing, so I have been putting the lasinoh and breastmilk on the crack and I have just been pumping that side every time I feed her on the other, seems to be working ok for now! thanks!

Ditto what everybody else has said...but I wanted to chime in and mention that I much preferred my Medela lanolin vs Lans(whatever!). Not sure of the difference.

Ditto the medela lanolin vs Lansinoh lanolin. I had bought medela but got a Lansinoh sample in the hospital and medela is waaaay better. I also have friends that loved the Target brand best.
