Anyone used Lansinoh weeks prior to baby & it helped prevent sore nipples?

I just bought some and read on the leaflet inside to do this. Wondering if anyone here has actually done do.

Actually I used it more before birth than after. It really does help with preg sore dry nipples. I never got nipple pain after birth inspite of super frequent nursing. So maybe it helps with the after too, hard to tell without a control experiment.

I'd always heard that you don't want to moisturize your nipples beforehand because it makes them too soft and fragile. Kind of like removing calluses on your feet before walking a mile on pavement barefoot would not be the best idea.

I have no idea if it's true or not, and I'm not a trained professional. Just what I've heard in the past.
