Re: Are nipple soothers (gel pads, cream, shields etc.) necessary?

I had quite a bit of pain breastfeeding for the first few weeks for both of my daughters. The creams didn't really help, though. I think it was just something my body needed to do to shift into nursing mode. And the pain was usually only for the first minute or two of nursing, until my baby got a better latch.
