Or do you not get sore? If you do, what do you use?

It took me by surprise last month, because I didnt expect my period back this early. And with AF comes a supply dip for me, so Z was nursing both sides instead of his usual one, so I was very sore and didn't have as long of 'recovery time" per nipple. I didn't really do anything for it, other than maybe lanolin a couple times, but I would love to see what others do, since I'm expecting it again in a week or so!

I don't really get sore with AF. My supply does dip, though. The past 24 hours or so, my supply has taken a hit, so it made me think this morning that maybe AF was on the way. Checked the FF app, and I'm on CD18, so I thought, ok, maybe some other reason for a dip in supply. Sure enough, started spotting today. Blah.

But what I used for sore nipples in the beginning with both girls was the Soothies gel pads, and also lanolin. Loved the Soothies!
