How Long Do/Did You Use Lansinoh?

Hi ladies!

My daughter is 5 weeks old today and I was just wondering--do you think it's safe for me to stop applying Lansinoh now? It really helped me the first couple of weeks because my nipples were super sore but they don't get sore anymore. I just don't like that extra step of slathering thick lanolin on my nipples after nursing but I'm worried my nipples will get sensitive again? I'm a first time mom (can you tell? ) so I have no idea when I should be using this stuff 'til!

Thanks!

give it a break and if you start feeling that you need it, start up again. HTHs!

I only ended up using it for a week or so, then occasionally after that if my nipples got sore. Never hurts to have some on hand

With DS, for a month solid, then on and off for another month. I had a lot of cracking!

With DD... maybe once?? I guess I was broken in

Stop and just use it if you notice you are sore or dry after

I only used it consistently for about 1.5 weeks and i felt my nipples had gotten used to it. I still have it on hand if they get sore again. my baby is only 3 weeks but i feel she has a pretty good latch.

I used it consistently for the first month, then just applied it if I felt like they were feeling sore or sensitive.
