Keep it in the air as much as you can. Lanolin is OK if it makes it feel better. Keep on nursin' unless it's bad, then pump I guess.

Breastmilk should be its own antibiotic. I wouldn't put anything sticky on it unless you're going topless, or it'll still to your bra and hurt more. I'm feeling for you. Just got over a month of cracked and bleeding nipples. But we're fine now!

Nah, I wouldn't put anything like that on it. PP is right, lanolin would make it stick..
I hope it feels better soon!

We got some Soothies breast pads when my nipples were cracked shortly after dd#2 was born. Between using the soothies and putting some BM on my nipples and letting them air dry, they were healed in 24 hrs. Soothies are the BEST!

Re: ds just bit me and drew blood, what do i do for my nipple?

DD did this to me a few weeks ago. It was the most horrendous pain I've ever been in, I swear.

I ended up putting neosporin+pain on it because it was just so, so, sore. My best advice is to KEEP NURSING!! I thought maybe I could just let DD nurse on the other side till that side healed. WRONG! I became engorged on the injured side and that made it 10 times worse.

I don't want to scare you, but I do want you to know that it took over a week for my nipple to heal to the point that I didn't cry everytime she nursed. I hope yours heals MUCH quicker than that!!

Saline soaks work pretty good. Just mix up a warm salt water solution and then dip your boob in there. It looks funny and is awkward, but it helps.

Ibuprofen for the pain and swelling.

This is embarassing, but I"m just now healing from where my dog jumped on me and scratched my nipple through my shirt!!! God, it hurt for a while when DD was nursing.

The first time that DD bit me I ended up with mastitis, so watch out for that as well. I guess the infection when through the broken skin.
