I never used wipes... just massaged colostrum/milk into my nipples or used lanolin. I nursed DS until 19 months. DD is 2 1/2 weeks, and the first part has been a lot easier the second time around. Maybe the same will be true for you!
Also I've been glad to have my pump. Last time I didn't buy the pump until DS was a month old. This time I've pumped twice for a little relief.
