Re: Going to try one more time and need advice

Severely Cracked nipples aren't always a sign of poor latch although just one time can do it! I had severe nipple trauma even though my DD latch was pretty good. I have severe eczema which made it worse AND I'm sensitive to lanolin. I highly recommend that you test the lanolin stuff BEFORE you rub it all over your sore nipples! If it gets really bad your doctor or LC can prescribe All purpose nipple ointment which has a bunch of crazy stuff in it and needs to be made by a compounding pharmacy. That stuff saved me and my ability to nurse my DD! No matter how bad it feels it WILL go away soon. Definitely talk to the LLL people too. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
