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

Ice packs of any kind were great for me. and for me, breast pads ( to soak up excess milk) were essential but not everyone needs them. If you live near a store you can send DH to get them if you start leaking. The tube of lanolin was nice on the chapped nipples and I used it on my kids for rashes from drooling and cold weather and things too. It's useful stuff.
